If our friends at AutoColumn are to be believed, the Porsche Macan would have its India debut at the Auto Expo 2014!
While the folks at the AutoColumn believe that the new Macan will come to India via CKD route, we believed that the latest small crossover from Porsche would come to us as CBU, at least for the initial few batches. Once the CKD assemble commences, the same would take place at VW group’s Audi facility at Shendre, Aurangabad.
The new Porsche Macan was unveiled earlier this year at 2013 LA Auto Show and will be available in 3 variants- Macan S, Macan S diesel and Macan Turbo.
The entry level Macan S is powered by a 3.0 liter V6 twin turbo engine that has a max power of 335PS (340PS). The Porsche Macan S can accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds.
The Macan S diesel variant is powered by a frugal 255hp 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel engine. This is the engine that is sure to bring in major chunk of sales in car markets like that of ours.
The Macan Turbo, which will have a sticker price of USD 73,295, will be powered by a 3.6 liter V6 twin turbo engine that has a max power of 395hp (400PS).
2015 Porsche Macan is underpinned by the highly publicized MLB architecture from VW group. In India, the new Porsche Macan is expected to carry a sticker price of INR 55 Lakhs. Porsche hopes to sell as many as 250 units of Macan in 2014.
