Porsche-Macan-Preview-15

The Porsche Macan has just been launched in Malaysia, with official prices finally confirmed. The range – four in total – will start at RM420,000 for the base Macan, which is RM30,000 less than the estimated pricing Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP) released last May.

This base model is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine from the Volkswagen Group, which has 237 hp and 350 Nm (from 1,500 to 4,500 rpm). It’ll do 0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds, on to a top speed of 223 km/h through a standard seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. It’s claimed to consume just 7.2 litres per 100 km in the combined cycle.

Next in line is the Macan S Diesel, going for RM545,000 – RM5,000 down from the estimated price. Its 3.0 litre turbodiesel V6 engine makes 245 hp and 580 Nm of torque, and gets to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds (6.1 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package). Top speed is 230 km/h, and it’ll average between 6.3 to 6.1 litres per 100 km.

On to the petrol-powered Macan S, the RM560,000 sporty SUV gets a 3.0 litre twin-turbo V6 engine with 340 hp and 460 Nm of torque. Performance is well up from the two lesser models, with 0-100 km/h done in 5.4 seconds (5.2 with Sport Chrono) and 254 km/h top whack. Fuel wise, it’ll use 8.7 to 9.0 litres per 100 km.

The top-of-the-range Porsche Macan Turbo goes for RM785,000. The big asking price nets you a 3.6 litre twin-turbo V6 motor which does 400 hp and 550 Nm of torque. The century sprint is over in 4.8 seconds (4.6 with Sport Chrono) and the top speed is 266 km/h. If you have to ask, it’ll do 8.9 to 9.2 litres per 100 km.

Standard features vary between the four models, but each will have a long list of optional extras. Bigger wheels (up to 21-inches), exterior/interior carbon-fibre add-ons, air suspension, they’re all available, limited only by your wallet depth. Watch out, Range Rover Evoque, the Macan is here to eat you up.

All prices are Nett Selling Price before OTR costs (registration fee, road tax) and insurance. As usual, all Macan models come with a four-year warranty as well as a four-year free service, parts and maintenance package.
