Porsche Cayenne GTS To Launch By End Of 2021
In the second half of 2021, Porsche India will introduce the Macan facelift as well as the Cayenne GTS. By the end of the year, Porsche will also be increasing its dealership network in the country.
The Porsche Macan is now available in three models: basic, Macan S, and Macan GTS; the Macan Turbo is no longer available. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine produces 265 horsepower in the basic Macan.
The sportier Macan S has a 2.9-liter V6 engine that produces 380 horsepower, while the top-of-the-line Macan GTS has a 2.9-liter V6 engine that produces 440 horsepower and 549Nm of torque. With torque vectoring, firmer air springs, and a 0-100kph time of 4.3 seconds, the GTS is Macan’s most performance-oriented model.
The updated Macan gets a slightly modified front fascia in addition to the mechanical changes. The improvements are more noticeable on the interior, with the cabin being completely redesigned to match the Cayenne and Panamera.
The Porsche Cayenne GTS replaces the previous model’s V6 with a detuned version of the Cayenne Turbo’s 550hp 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 from the Cayenne Turbo. The engine in the GTS produces 460 horsepower and 620 Nm of torque. It also has the Porsche Active Suspension Management and Torque Vectoring Plus systems, as it is a performance-oriented model.
The Porsche Cayenne GTS features dark-tinted LED headlights and an LED tail-light bar, as well as black air intakes, side window trims, tailpipes, and GTS insignia on the outside. Notably, both the basic Cayenne and the Cayenne Coupe have received the GTS treatment from Porsche.
The current-generation Macan was given a facelift in 2018, and the new model was introduced in India the following year, in both basic and Macan S versions. The forthcoming SUV will be the model’s second facelift before the next-generation Macan turns all-electric.
Moving on to the Porsche Cayenne GTS, the vehicle is available in India as a conventional SUV as well as an SUV-coupe. The version ranges from the entry-level V6 to the top-of-the-line Turbo. In Porsche’s lineup, the GTS will be positioned underneath the Turbo.
