The 2.9-litre V6 engine delivers 280 kW / 380 PS (horsepower) of power and 580 Nm of torque, living up to the sports feel of the Macan GTS. Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds thanks to the newly adapted PDK dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive system, the Macan GTS is not short on go or traction.
Acoustically, the standard sports exhaust system specifically adapted to the GTS accentuates the driving pleasure.
The standard Sports Design package includes distinctive front and rear trim treatments in matt black and a rear spoiler in gloss black, setting the Macan GTS apart from the rest. With the 20” RS Spyder design wheels, the GTS rolls in real style.
The dark tinted LED lighting system that includes the Porsche Dynamic Lighting System (PDLS) will guide the way in adverse weather or in the dark of night. Three dimensional rear lights with a darkened LED light bar refine the rear of the Macan GTS.
The Macan GTS: Sport car handling in a four door package.
Drivers are equally met with style, design, comfort and functionality in the interior of the Macan GTS. The multi-function sports steering wheel and shift paddles are standard. So are the 8-way adjustable sports seats and pronounced side bolsters for stable support during dynamic cornering. 17-way comfort seats are also available at no cost.
The GTS leather upholstery in Carmine Red or Crayon, with additional Alcantara® features and colour accents, and the BOSE® Surround Sound system, are among the many personalisation options.
Inside and out the Macan GTS not only looks good, but delivers dynamic driving as the distinctly sporty model in the Macan range.

(Full review here.)
“If driving enjoyment and a talented chassis are your top fast-SUV priorities, then this is the one to buy. Quicker and sharper than any of its rivals, the Macan GTS is still the dynamic benchmark for circa-$100K performance SUVs.”
-Alex Inwood, Wheels Magazine (Full review here.)
