2021 PORSCHE MACAN GTS REVIEW AND TEST DRIVE – is it a good buy?
History of Porsche Macan GTS
The Porsche Macan is a high-performance five-door luxury crossover SUV produced by the German car manufacturer Porsche in 2014. It was built in Leipzig, Germany, with many variants, including the Macan, Macan S, Macan S Diesel, Macan GTS and the Macan Turbo, which shared a platform with the Audi Q5.
The Macan GTS was unveiled at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, and orders began in Germany the same year while at the Porsche dealers went on sale in early 2016. It is recognisable by its black window trims, black accents, 20-inch black alloy wheels and black exhaust pipes. Its power was raised and got 355 bhp with the V6 twin-turbocharged engine. The GTS offered an all-wheel-drive system that is mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission.
After four years of bringing the historic GTS moniker to the Macan range, Porsche made a mid-cycle facelift on the Macan GTS in 2019. A brand new engine now powers it, and with a refreshed look, it is now the sportiest member of the Macan family that has been improved in almost every single detail. A 2.9-litre V6 has replaced the 3.0-litre, which follows a ‘hot-vee’ architecture of its twin-turbocharging system. The new powerplant is 20 hp and 20 Nm more powerful than the previous engine it replaces, resulting in 380 horsepower and 520 Nm of torque at its diesel. Furthermore, with the hot-vee arrangement, its responsiveness is a lot more direct, and the exhaust system has also been specifically tuned for the facelifted Macan GTS.
The rear has been extensively redesigned to keep the car more in line with the latest Porsche design language, while the front is visibly identical to its predecessor. Its individual rear taillights are now unified by a light bar like its bigger brother, the Cayenne. In addition, the Macan GTS features a distinguishing feature found on all Porsche GTS models, with the front and rear aprons having black painted design elements.
The Porsche Macan was one of the best selling models of Porsche along with the Porsche Cayenne between January to September 2019, with China as the key market, followed by the USA, Asia-Pacific, Africa and the Middle East regions.
