Porsche's top-selling vehicle in Canada, the Macan compact crossover, is receiving a sporty makeover that includes a powerful engine, performance-oriented chassis and updated interior.
The 2020 Macan GTS arrives in U.S. dealerships next summer and starts at $78,600, including shipping.
The Macan is Porsche's most popular model in Canada and the United States, with sales of 3,252 in Canada through November and 20,992 sold in the first 11 months of the year south of the border.
The Macan GTS is powered by a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V-6 engine that delivers 375 hp — an increase of 15 hp compared with the outgoing model. The crossover boasts a top speed of 260 km/h (162 mph) and is capable of a 0-to-60-mph sprint in 4.7 seconds. The optional Sport Chrono package drops the acceleration time to 4.5 seconds.
