Top of the Macan tree, the 2020 Macan Turbo may be Porsche’s smallest SUV, but it combines that with plenty of entertainment. More excessive than the Macan S – which would still arguably be the sensible pick of the range – the Macan Turbo gets extra badging and a rear roof spoiler, along with side-skirts and a quad-tailpipe exhaust. It sounds feistier, too.
Under the hood is a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6. That’s good for 434 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque, as well as 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds, assuming you have the Sport Chrono package. A 7-speed PDK transmission is standard, as is Porsche’s surface-coated braking system.
Inside there’s Porsche’s excellent touchscreen infotainment system, though everywhere else you’ll find plenty of buttons. Apple CarPlay is available, though not Android Auto, and as-per-Porsche-usual there’s a long options list of different trims and extras which will easily send the price spiraling into six figures. Considering the 2020 Macan Turbo starts at $83,600 that’s impressive indeed.
