Slotting between the S and the Turbo variants, the refreshed GTS packs a more powerful twin-turbo V6, has a sportier-looking exterior, as well as exclusive materials and trim for the interior.
Much like pre-facelift Macan GTS, the updated model gets black-painted elements on its exterior. From the front air vents and grill, new side skirts, and rear accents, Porsche was busy adding the black hue on the GTS' body. In addition, this particular Macan also comes with LED headlights (with Porsche Dynamic Light System), and 20-inch RS Spyder Design wheels painted in Satin Black.
High-quality Alcantara blankets the center of the seats, the center console armrest, as well as the door panels for that plush and sporty feel. Meanwhile, brushed aluminum provide additional brightwork inside the Macan GTS. Eight-way adjustable power front seats with enhanced side bolstering keep the driver and front passenger planted to the seats. Finally, a Bose sound system, and a wireless smartphone charging system provide some extra tech on the 2020 Macan GTS.
As mentioned earlier, the V6 under the hood now cranks out more horsepower and torque. From 360 PS, Macan GTS now puts out 375 PS. Meanwhile, torque has been increased from 500 Nm to a more substantial 519 Nm. The engine is then paired to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, allowing it to sprint from 0 – 97 km/h in 4.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 260 km/h.
Besides having a more powerful engine, they also installed a sport exhaust system as standard on which Porsche claims 'accentuates the driving pleasure' for GTS owners. Helping the Macan GTS shave off speed quickly come courtesy of the optional Porsche Surface Coated Brakes (PSCB) which have been coated with a layer of tungsten carbide for better braking.
The 2020 Porsche Macan GTS is expected to arrive first in US dealerships by mid-2020.
