Porsche Macan Turbo to have 370 hp - report

New details are starting to emerge about the Porsche Macan.

The entry-level model is expected to use a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with 220 hp (164 kW / 223 PS). It should enable the crossover to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 230 km/h (143 mph).

If that isn't powerful enough, the Macan S is slated to feature a naturally-aspirated 3.6-liter V6 petrol engine with 295 hp (220 kW / 299 PS).

On the diesel side, there will reportedly be a 190 hp (142 kW / 193 PS) 2.0-liter TDI and a 250 hp (186 kW / 253 PS) 3.0-liter V6.

The Turbo variant is expected to use a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine with approximately 370 hp (276 kW / 375 PS) and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque.

Later on, the company could introduce a hybrid with a 208 hp (155 kW / 211 PS) turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine and a 54 hp (40 kW / 55 PS) electric motor. We could also see an Audi-sourced twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 diesel with 309 hp (230 kW / 313 PS).

Besides having an extensive engine lineup, the Macan is expected to ride on the MLB platform and feature a unique electro-mechanical power steering system as well as Porsche-specific spring and damper rates. The crossover could also have a unique all-wheel drive system with torque vectoring for improved handling.
