2019 Porsche Macan performance
The drivetrain of the Macan crossover is subject of discussion among experts and fans. While 2.0-l turbo-four unit delivers a nice amount of power, its drive system has a lot of lacks. The output of 250 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque is for praise. But, the gearbox is clunky. Updates could make 2019 Porsche Macan even faster, especially for GTS model. However, turbo engine did not get rid of standard lacks for this kind of drivetrain, including wrong valve timing. Nevertheless, handling and off-road capabilities are surprisingly good.
