Porsche’s baby Cayenne comes in to take on the BMW X3 and Audi Q5

The Macan was launched in 2014 and became Porsche’s second production crossover and smallest SUV. Based on the same MLB platform underpinning the Audi Q5, the Macan was launched with a range of gasoline and diesel V-6 engines. Later on, it also received a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit, become the first modern-day Porsche to use a four-banger.

Remember when Porsche released the Cayenne? Remember all the people in their Porsche owners club shirts sitting around and telling you about how this new SUV was a disgrace to the Porsche logo and that all the company should design and produce are 911 variants? Well, the Cayenne turned out to be a real success, so the company decided to further expand its SUV lineup with the addition of a new model placed under the midsize SUV.

After being tested for a very long time, the new Macan made its world debut at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. Initially, the model was rumored to be called "Cajun," but Porsche opted for "Macan" – a name coming from the Indonesian word for tiger. According to Porsche, the name symbolizes the Macan as a model that is "powerful and ready to pounce at any time, yet light-footed and tenacious on off-road terrain."

Initially, the Macan was only offered in “Turbo” and “S” form here in the U.S., but eventually, the Macan GTS was made available as well. In 2016, Porsche expanded the Macan lineup even further with a new entry-level model.
