2016 Porsche Macan Changes
The 2016 Porsche Macan is about to make its North American debut. Its premiere is scheduled for the 2015 LA Auto Show, and the model is expected to hit the showrooms shortly after. The most notable change comes with a new diesel engine under the hood of this luxury SUV. So, the new model will be sold as the 2016 Porsche Macan S Diesel.
The Macan SUV established itself as a prestigious model right after its launch. Many view this SUV as a proper Porsche model in every sense of the word. What sets the Macan from the rest of the SUV competition are its superb performance and unique design. Moreover, the German company has even decided to base the redesigned full-size Cayenne on the 2016 Porsche Macan.

Although the US buyers have been expecting some more substantial changes, the new Macan will offer only a new powerplant on this market. As for its exterior styling, the model will retain its familiar shape underpinned by the same VW platform. The Macan SUV was initially presented as a baby version of the Porsche Cayenne SUV, but it has managed to prove itself as a highly respected model over the years. It surpasses its rivals, such as the Range Rover Evoque, Mercedes-Benz GLK and BMW X3, in various aspects.
The 2016 Porsche Macan S Diesel will be fitted with a powerful V6 turbo-diesel engine. This 3.0-liter unit generates 245 horseopower. It will once again come as a five-passenger SUV with highly comfortable interior and a large number of technologically advanced systems. One of its greatest upsides is its dynamic and athletic stance combined with outstanding off-road capabilities. The new Macan will be available in base, S and Turbo versions. As its predecessors, the 2016 Macan will be one of the best vehicles in the segment when it comes to maneuverability and driving experience.
2016 Porsche Macan Price
However, the upcoming Macan’s pricing might come as a serious obstacle for many car buyers. While the gasoline-powered S version starts $51.095, the new 2016 Porsche Macan S Diesel will cost around $60,000. However, this is still considerably lower than $73,259 that you will need in order to purchase the Turbo version.
