Engine lineup could include a variety of petrol and diesel options

New details are starting to emerge about the Porsche Macan.

The entry-level model is expected to use a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with 220 hp (164 kW / 223 PS). It should enable the crossover to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 230 km/h (143 mph).

If that isn't powerful enough, the Macan S is slated to feature a naturally-aspirated 3.6-liter V6 petrol engine with 295 hp (220 kW / 299 PS).

On the diesel side, there will reportedly be a 190 hp (142 kW / 193 PS) 2.0-liter TDI and a 250 hp (186 kW / 253 PS) 3.0-liter V6.

The Turbo variant is expected to use a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine with approximately 370 hp (276 kW / 375 PS) and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque.

Later on, the company could introduce a hybrid with a 208 hp (155 kW / 211 PS) turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine and a 54 hp (40 kW / 55 PS) electric motor. We could also see an Audi-sourced twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 diesel with 309 hp (230 kW / 313 PS).

Besides having an extensive engine lineup, the Macan is expected to ride on the MLB platform and feature a unique electro-mechanical power steering system as well as Porsche-specific spring and damper rates. The crossover could also have a unique all-wheel drive system with torque vectoring for improved handling.

Cajun was never the finalized name at all. It was the prototype name that stood for CAyenne JUNior, so when combined says CAJUN. Officially as a production model it will be called the Macan.

here's to hoping it looks good. Porsches are always good to drive so that won't be much of a surprise.
