5 features that make the Porsche Macan T unique

Posted 4th November 2022

It is often difficult for those interested in purchasing their own Macan to determine which model is right for them. The fantastic Macan T is often overlooked as the middle ground option. For your convenience, we have outlined the five best features of the Macan T so you can understand more about where it sits in the Macan range

1. The perfect balance of comfort and performance

Sitting in the middle of the coveted Macan range, the Porsche Macan T gives driving enthusiasts both exceptional comfort and impressive driving performance. With a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-litre engine, this transition from comfort to performance is seamless.

The engine sits longitudinally for better weight distribution and weighs 56kg lighter than its V6 counterpart in the Macan S. The engine positioning improves the Macan T’s handling through tight corners, enhancing the driving performance on country roads.

2. Superb ride quality

With Porsche’s Active Suspension Management system (PASM) as standard, when driving the Porsche Macan T you will experience truly magnificent ride quality and handling dynamics that all modern Porsche customers have come to expect.

Not only does PASM provide greater control through corners, it also lowers the ride height by an extra 15mm. Not only does this provide the Macan T with a sportier looking stance compared to the standard model, it creates a dynamic driving experience that makes the Macan T feel more like a hot hatch than a SUV.

3. Fantastic range of standard equipment

The Macan T comes with a wide range of optional specifications fitted as standard. The Sports Chrono Package is one of these options, and comes complete with the Sports Chrono Clock mounted prominently in the middle of the car’s dash. The heated multifunction GT Sport wheel means you can choose your drive style from the steering wheel, a feature unique to the Sports Chrono Pack.

Additionally, the Macan T features main LED headlights which have Porsche’s Dynamic Lighting System (PDLS). This means that the Macan T’s headlights work both statically and dynamically, by adjusting the amount of light emitted depending on speed, and rotating the lights towards the apex of the bend when cornering for enhanced visibility in low light conditions.

4. Exterior styling

The exterior aesthetics on the Macan T are certainly fit to match the model’s impressive performance. There are some distinctive features unique to the Macan T that make it easy to spot when out on the road. Agate Grey exterior highlights feature heavily on the Macan T’s exterior, and can be seen on the wing mirror caps, side blades, rear spoiler, front bumper, rear badge and exterior lettering.

5.  Interior luxury 

The Macan T boasts an interior that is fit to match the model’s impressive performance and glorious exterior aesthetic.

With the Porsche crest embedded in the headrests, subtle nods to the brand's sporting heritage are visible to those with a more inquisitive eye.
