2017 Porsche Macan Efficiency

Every engine available with the 2017 Macan features both direct fuel injection and automatic start-stop technology, which—in an effort to conserve fuel–can automatically turn off the engine when the vehicle is at a complete stop, then switch the motor back on when the driver takes their foot off the brake. For the best fuel efficiency possible, consumers can look towards the new base Macan, which yields an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. Each of the other three Macan trims provides fuel efficiency of 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. Furthermore, the ‘17 Porsche Macan comes standard with a 19.8 gallon fuel tank.

2017 Porsche Macan Interior

The interior of the 2017 Porsche Macan might not be as cavernous as the larger Porsche Cayenne, but the new Macan is more affordable and still spacious in its own right, while also offering more advanced tech equipment than ever before.
