Upping the ante yet again, as far as sport crossover cars are concerned, is Porsche with the introduction of their newest model, the Macan. The new car is a five-door, five-seater rocket that’s optimized for use on or off-road. Available as the Macan S or the Macan Turbo, both models feature a full-time all-wheel drive system with an active, multi-plate clutch. The former model features a twin turbo, 3.0L V6 engine that can propel the car to 60 mph from a standstill in just 5.2 seconds. On the other hand, the Macan Turbo will be equipped with a massive 3.6L V6 twin turbo churning out 400 horses and giving a quicker 0-60 mph time at 4.6 seconds. That time could even be shortened if you decide to go with the Sport Chrono package. Porsche will be building all units from their Leipzig plant. In case you’re wondering, ‘Macan’ means tiger in Indonesian so better grab this tiger by the scruff of the neck and never let go. $49,900+.
