A hot-rod compact crossover might seem silly—until you get behind the wheel of a Macan and hit the gas. Sharing basic architecture with the Audi Q5, the Macan is quicker and more capable both on- and off-road. The base engine is a 252-hp 2.0-liter turbo four. The S has a 340-hp twin-turbo V-6; the GTS boosts that number to 360. All-wheel drive and a seven-speed automatic are standard on all. The S hit 60 mph in 4.6 seconds in our test; its numb steering and soft brake pedal are un-Porsche-like.
Porsche Macan marketing department likes to say that is a compact crossover, but that’s not how we see it—especially not in its new GTS trim. Compared with others in its segment, the Macan GTS has a low-slung body free of gaudy plastic cladding, a ferocious appetite for high-performance driving, compromised rear-seat and cargo space, and relatively limited off-road capability. So why not call a spade a spade and label the Macan as Porsche’s hot hatch?
Standard Macan GTS fare includes electronically adaptive dampers, a stiffer rear anti-roll bar, larger front brakes borrowed from the Macan Turbo, and an air-spring suspension that’s slightly lower and stiffer than that of the 340-hp Macan S. Our test car also came equipped with Porsche’s $1490 torque-vectoring system that can lock the rear differential and apply braking to the inside rear wheel to assist rotation during cornering.
