2017 Porsche Macan: Life, Intensified
If you’re looking for a compact SUV that’s still sporty and has an excellent fuel economy, then the 2017 Porsche Macan is the perfect vehicle for you. The Macan was built for an intensive life in which the thirst for experience and thrills and spills are ever-present, and in which new challenges are a permanent driving force. It features Porsche’s legendary 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission so you can experience motorsport-style gear changes. The system also includes a coasting mode to reduce fuel consumption and emissions where driving situations allows.
The interior is ergonomic, multifunctional and typical for a sports car. Intensify your driving experience even further with features such as the new version of Porsche Communication Management (PCM) – your control center for audio, telephone and navigation functions. Thanks to mobile phone preparation, you can connect to it conveniently via Bluetooth®. In response to hand movement, the integral proximity sensor activates the screen to display the relevant menu contents, which you can then operate intuitively using multi-touch gestures. You can also opt to include the navigation module, the Connect Plus module, seat heating in the front and rear, or one of the child seats and boot management systems.
Looking for something sporty with a little more room for the family? This sizable 5-passenger SUV lives up to Porsche’s luxurious high-performing sports cars with an interior made up of of the same materials found in newer 911 models like: finely stitched leather, real wood, and metal accents. You can entertain your rear passengers with LCD screens found in the front headrests; but the most fun is behind the wheel of the Cayenne.
Everything you need is within easy reach so you can focus on what’s important: the road. For example, the new Porsche Communication Management system (PCM), with its rimless glass surface, fits perfectly into the center console. Get access to wireless Internet access, online navigation, Apple® CarPlay and Porsche Car Connect with the available Connect Plus module. Driving the Cayenne is even better with a host of advanced technologies like the 8-speed Tiptronic S to provide both comfort and dynamic agility. The 8-speed Tiptronic S shifts gear automatically and adapts to your individual driving style. In sport mode, the gear shifts are more dynamic. The gear shifting system is designed around direct throttle response and high consistent torque to provide ideal acceleration.
