The all-new Porsche Macan has been recently caught testing on the streets of Europe in real traffic, getting ready for its future customers.
The baby-Cayenne, which started its life under the Cajun name, is currently being developed by Porsche in an attempt for the German based automaker to enter a new market segment and with the company testing the model so intensely these days we can say that it might pull a surprise on all of us and bring it to the 2012 Paris Motor Show in September.
The Porsche Macan is expected to hit the market in 2013 as a 2014 model year and its engine lineup will be made out of both petrol and diesel engines, including the turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder unit with 220 HP, the 3.6 liter V6 naturally aspirated with 296 HP or the 3.0 liter twin-turbo V6 with 370 HP which will be known as the Macan Turbo. Diesel options will include a 2.0 liter TDI engine producing 190 HP and a larger 3.0 liter V6 TDI with 250 HP. A hybrid powertrain is also expected to make its way into the Porsche Macan, most likely sourced from the Audi Q5 Hybrid.
