Porsche has revealed a new entry-level version of the Macan powered by a four-cylinder engine.

It was 1995 when Porsche used a four-banger for the last time with the 968 and now the baby Cayenne has received a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine which generates 237 bhp (177 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft). It works with a PDK and enables the Macan to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in 6.9 seconds and return 31.3 mpg US (37.6 mpg UK or 7.5 liters / 100 km).

A forbidden fruit in the United States, the four-cylinder Macan can be visually distinguished by its dual exhaust arrangement as opposed to the S and Turbo variants which make use of quad pipes. The base Macan will be offered as standard with 18-inch alloy wheels and a dual-zone climate control system while for more money clients will be able to opt for a panoramic roof, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) along with front & rear Park Assist.
