Today at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, Porsche celebrates the world premiere of the all-new Macan, a model that sees the German sports car manufacturer expand its range in to a whole new vehicle segment.

Available to order from today, and arriving in Porsche Centres in the UK and Ireland from April 2014, the Macan brings proven Porsche values of maximum acceleration and braking performance, vast engine power, extreme agility and optimum steering precision for the first time to the compact sports utility vehicle (SUV) segment. And all of these features are combined with a high level of comfort and versatility.

The most dynamic vehicle in the compact sports utility vehicle segment

As the first Porsche in the compact SUV segment, the Macan will set new standards in terms of dynamic performance, on both paved streets and uneven terrain. This is because the Macan combines the typical handling characteristics that Porsche has represented right from the outset. The sporting DNA of the Macan, as with all Porsche vehicles, is immediately recognisable in the design, with several styling cues being taken from other Porsche sports cars and then enhanced for the Macan. It is therefore clear to see from the very first glance that the Porsche Macan is the first compact SUV that is also a sports car.

The Macan will be available in three versions from launch. Technical highlights include Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive and the Porsche PDK double-clutch transmission fitted as standard. The body conceals highly efficient six-cylinder engines, which provide powerful propulsion while achieving favourable fuel consumption figures.

The Macan S is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 bi-turbo engine that delivers 340 hp (250 kW), accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 5.2 seconds and returns up to 32.5 mpg (NEDC). The 3.6-litre V6 bi-turbo engine in the Macan Turbo produces 400 hp (294 kW) and accelerates the vehicle to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds, with an average fuel consumption of up to 31.7 mpg (NEDC). With a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine and 258 hp (190 kW), the Macan S Diesel is the long-distance sports car. The engine accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 6.3 seconds and returns an average of 46.3 mpg (NEDC).

The Macan is a Porsche to its core

Porsche is expanding its range to include a whole new sixth model series. The Macan is the first Porsche model to break into the compact SUV segment and is poised to set new standards in the field of driving dynamics and enjoyment - on both paved streets and uneven terrain. The Macan combines the typical handling characteristics that Porsche has represented right from the outset: maximum acceleration and braking values, vast engine power, extreme agility and optimum steering precision. What's more, all of these features are teamed with a high level of comfort and everyday suitability.

The sporting DNA of the Macan, as with all Porsche vehicles, is also immediately recognisable in the design. The car is unrivalled in its low, broad profile on the road. The wraparound bonnet and gently sloping roof line accentuate the overall impression of sporting elegance and powerful dynamics. Many of the design elements have been taken from other Porsche sportscars and enhanced for the Macan, making it clear to see from the very first glance that the Porsche Macan heralds the first sports car in the compact SUV segment.

The Macan is 'Made in Germany', produced at the Leipzig factory. Porsche has invested 500 million Euro in the plant and established an entirely new production line. The line is set up to produce around 50,000 vehicles per year - all manufactured with the utmost precision and to the highest level of quality.

Three models comprise the Macan product range at launch. The Macan S is equipped with a 3.0-litre V6 bi-turbo engine delivering 340 bhp (250 kW) and also features Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive with an electronically controlled, map-controlled multi-plate clutch. This all-wheel drive is fitted on all Macan models. A seven-speed double-clutch transmission transfers power as required and almost without any interruption in tractive force, enabling acceleration of 0 to 62 mph in 5.4 seconds (or 5.2 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package fitted). The vehicle reaches a top speed of 158 mph, and its NEDC fuel consumption figures are between 31.4 and 32.5 mpg, which corresponds to CO2 emissions of between 212 and 204 g/km.

The Macan S Diesel is the economical long-distance runner of the three Macan models. Its turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine achieves NEDC fuel consumption figures of between 44.8 and 46.3 mpg, which correspond to CO2 emissions of between 164 and 159 g/km. Nevertheless, the Macan S Diesel accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in just 6.3 seconds (or 6.1 seconds with the Sport Chrono package fitted) thanks to its 258 hp (190 kW) engine, and achieves a top speed of 143 mph.

As the top model in the Macan range, the Macan Turbo is set to be the most powerful vehicle in the compact SUV segment. The 3.6-litre V6 bi-turbo engine, which is being used in a Porsche model for the first time, achieves an unrivalled 400 hp (294 kW) and catapults the car from 0 to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds. With the Sport Chrono package fitted, this falls to 4.6 seconds. Although the top speed is 165 mph, the Macan Turbo delivers NEDC fuel consumption figures of between 30.7 and 31.7 mpg, which equates to a CO2 value of between 216 and 208 g/km.
