The 2020 Porsche Macan comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 7-speed automated manual. Turbo returns to the lineup with revised engine, more power.Offers optional upgrade to tungsten carbide-coated brakes.

Porsche facelifted the regular Macan for 2019 and chose to skip a model year before releasing the updated Turbo version for 2020. Along with the massaged appearance and slightly revised interior that debuted with the 2019 Macan, the Macan Turbo receives a slew of newly standard features and an all-new engine. Its twin-turbo V-6 is downsized from 3.6 liters to 2.9, yet horsepower increases from 400 to 434. Porsche claims these performance updates make the 2020 Macan Turbo quicker and faster.

Pros
Ridiculous performance,
fine interior,
myriad personalization options.

Cons
Compact cabin space,
meager cargo area,
costs a pretty penny.

By: 
caranddriver.com
