The facelifted 2018 Porsche Macan will be getting the new range of turbocharged V6 direct-injection petrol engines. These engines have been recently launched with the second-generation Panamera in the global markets.
Jointly developed with Audi, the new engines will replace the existing turbocharged 3.0- and 3.6-litre V6 petrol engines. The new engines codenamed - KoVoMo - will come in two variants - 2.9-litre and 3.0-litre.
The new 3.0-litre, turbocharged, V6 engine is capable of producing 329hp and 450Nm of peak torque. On the other hand, the 2.9-litre turbocharged V6 engine churns out 440hpof power and a massive torque of 549Nm.
In our country, Porsche currently sells the Macan in three variants - two petrol and a diesel. The first petrol variant is the entry-level Macan with a 2.0 petrol engine capable of producing 252hp of power. On the other hand, the second one is found in the top-end Macan Turbo producing 400hp of power. The German carmaker only offers a diesel engine in the Macan S.
Porsche has been spotted testing a prototype of the facelifted Macan S globally. The car (as seen in the prototype) will feature tweaked front and rear bumpers for a muscular look with new air ducts. The headlights have also been upgraded with new LED-enhanced lens graphics while the clusters remain the same.
The facelifted Macan is expected to hit the Indian shores only after its international debut; and once launched internationally, the car will lock horns with the Jaguar F-Pace.
