The all-new Porsche Macan has been recently caught on camera while being tested on public roads near the company’s headquarters in Stuttgart.
The German based automaker Porsche is intensely testing the newest model to enter the company’s lineup, the baby Cayenne, as it was nicknamed at first, the so-called Macan, and the midsize SUV was recently caught on camera while it was being tested on public roads near the automaker’s headquarters. The video posted below is revealing the Porsche Macan with no camouflage on its body while it’s leaving a petrol station at night.
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. Additional details on the model are limited for the moment and will probably be announced over the following months.
