Porsche has rolled out a new version of its smaller SUV called the Macan. The new version adds another sexy Porsche that slots into the GTS line with the Macan GTS getting official. Like the Boxster and Cayman GTS models, the Macan GTS gets more power and improved suspension for better handling. The heart of the SUV is a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 engine.

That V6 makes 360hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. The power goes to the ground via an AWD system mated with the Porsche 7-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. The Macan GTS also gets the Porsche Traction Management system that variably engages the front axle depending on traction.

The Macan GTS is able to reach 60mph in 4.8 seconds when fitted with the Sport Chrono Package and has a top speed of 159mph. Sport Chrono buyers get larger 360mm front rotors with six-piston calipers and 330mm rear rotors.

The Porsche Torque Vectoring system is optional on the Macan GTS. Standard suspension on the GTS includes the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) offering adjustable ride height and stiffness. The GTS is 10mm lower than the Macan Turbo is and the GTS can be had with optional LED headlights. The base price for the Macan GTS is $67,200 and it will go on sale in March.
