Every motorist knows that heavy snow makes for tough driving conditions. Safety is the top priority when weather dictates that a car has to tackle sub-zero conditions. The Porsche Macan delivers reliable handling and dynamic performance in the harshest winters.

Porsche Macan Advanced AWD

Power through all winter weather challenges with the Macan’s advanced All-Wheel Drive (AWD) technology. The AWD reacts to ground conditions, as well as the driver’s performance and reaction time. Arm yourself with the Porsche Macan to do battle with the worst that winter can throw your way.

Porsche Macan Hill Control System

The Porsche Hill Control system, which works in both forward and reverse gears, can be a valuable tool in hilly or mountainous regions. Motorists living in high snow areas can choose the air suspension option, which offers added  inches of ground clearance at the touch of a button.

This is a high-performance 340 HP machine, a true power ride. With its 7-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission, the Porsche Macan’s gear movements are highly responsive. It also has the added benefit of ABS brakes and electronically-controlled shock absorbers.

Tested at the Polar Circle

Tested at the Polar Circle with temperatures consistently below 30 degrees Celsius, the Macan has proven both stable and safe in the most extreme environments. Experience the comfort that comes from having heated leather seats and sector temperature control. Proud owners can feel confident  and protected when driving in heavy snow, and once familiar with the range of great Porsche technology, they can push the engine’s power to where it is most needed. This is a performance car with that trademark Porsche engine—efficient on fuel, powerful thrust, and handling that is every serious car enthusiast’s dream.
