In China, Macan customers have been served with a turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine as the basic engine since 2014. With the 2016 model year, P orsche also introduced a turbo four-cylinder as the basic unit for the Macan for Europe and the USA. The Macan is the second current Porsche model alongside the Boxster 718 that can be equipped with a four-cylinder. The four-in-line relies on two bar boost pressure, charge air cooling, direct petrol injection and variable timing on the intake and exhaust side. The two-liter engine develops 252 hp and provides a maximum torque of 370 Nm.

Four-cylinder achieves a top speed of 229 km /h

The power transmission takes over as with all Macan a dual clutch transmission and four-wheel drive. This means that the four-cylinder Macan should accelerate to 100 km /h in 6.7 seconds, and with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the time is reduced to 6.5 seconds. The top speed is 229 km /h. The standard consumption should be 7.2 to 7.4 liters per 100 km, depending on the tires.

In the four-cylinder Macan, there is an optional air suspension with level control including an active damper system. With a curb weight of 1,770 kg, the four-cylinder Macan is said to be the lightweight of the series.
