The 2022 Macan GTS will be available only in a single trim option and claims to offer better features than its already well-specced current model. The price for the 2022 Macan GTS will start at about $79,900, excluding other charges. It faces competition from around the globe, but especially from its European neighbors, like the BMW X3 M, Mercedes-AMG GLC 63, and Jaguar F-Pace SVR.

2022 Porsche Macan GTS SUV Features

10.0/10

The 2022 Porsche Macan GTS will be available in only a single trim option, and the good thing is that it is loaded with many bells and whistles. As per Porsche newsroom update, the 2022 Macan will feature a more powerful engine taken directly from the Macan Turbo, which means that the GTS will be the top-end Macan. It also gets some exterior changes as well, and the price for the same is expected to be in the ballpark of $79,900 excluding additional charges.

As the 2022 Macan GTS will be available in a single trim option, you don’t have any choice and need to go for it. However, don't worry, as it will come with all the bells and whistles that you expect from an SUV of its class. In addition to it, you’ll also get access to many customizable options. It will also get access to the optional Sport Package which includes the Sport Chrono Package and many other features like 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats, Sport design mirrors with caps painted in high-gloss black, and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus. The interiors will adorn carbon fiber trim elements, deviated stitching, and a greater number of RaceTex interior features.

Release Date  

Most of the features and updates in the 2022 Macan GTS have been released by Porsche newsroom, and it is expected to start reaching U.S dealerships by early 2022. 

2022 Porsche Macan GTS SUV Engine and Performance

8.0/10

The 2022 Macan GTS gets a power boost in the form of a new engine from the current Macan Turbo. It is a 2.9L twin-turbocharged V6 engine producing about 434 hp and about 406 lb-ft of torque. It is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The response from the drivetrain is bound to be staggering, and it will be easy to drive at low speeds around the town too, as the full torque production starts at as low as 1,800 rpm. 

2022 Porsche Macan GTS SUV engine bay

The acceleration time from 0-60 mph as quoted by the company is about 4.0 seconds with the optional Sports Chrono Package. Going on the lines of the current Macan GTS and with more power on the throttle pedal, we expect the 2022 Macan GTS to be even more fun to drive. Also, the handling is going to be great for an SUV of its size. The standard air suspension system when coupled with the Porsche Active Suspension Management system is bound to offer outstanding comfort and uncompromising dynamic performance.

The F-Pace is equipped with the biggest engine of the lot and produces the most firepower as well. However, it cannot beat the GLC 63 in terms of sheer acceleration of 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds. The BMW X3 M and Macan GTS follow GLC 63 with 4.2 seconds and 4.3 seconds of acceleration times, respectively. The F-Pace enjoys a higher top-end than the competition, followed by Macan GTS. The X3 M and GLC 63 offer the same top speed. 

2022 Porsche Macan GTS SUV Fuel Economy

5.0/10

The Porsche Macan GTS is designed to be a sporty midsize SUV. As per some reports, the fuel efficiency of the 2022 model will be in line with the 2021 Macan Turbo model. Currently, it offers 17 mpg in the city, 22 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg in combined driving conditions. With a fuel tank capacity of 19.8 gallons, it offers 337 miles in the city, 436 miles on the highway, and 396 miles in mixed traffic conditions. We expect minor improvements in the fuel efficiency for the 2022 model.

*Expected, 2021 data used for comparison 

The 2022 Porsche Macan GTS is expected to offer a better range than the competition. The Jaguar F-Pace SVR is equipped with the largest fuel tank, but owing to less efficiency, it loses out in the range battle. The X3 M and GLC 63 are equipped with similar-sized fuel tanks, but the GLC 63 is more efficient and delivers a better range. 

2022 Porsche Macan GTS SUV Interior

7.0/10

The 2022 Macan GTS comes with some updates for the interior as well. The dashboard is ergonomic and laid out well with all the functions within the easy reach of the front passengers. The signature Porsche analog clock is standard, and the redesigned center console comes with some tactile touch elements that lend a tidy look to the center console and gets a larger storage compartment as well. The seats are expected to be comfortable and supportive as well. 

2022 Porsche Macan GTS SUV rear seats

The rear seats lack adequate leg space for taller individuals, but comfort-wise, they are good. The gear lever is designed to be shorter and matches well with the updated center console design. Also, the new GT-inspired steering wheel will help to improve communication between the driver and the car. Also, to make the interiors look more appealing, there are optional packages with contrast stitching in Chalk, Gentian Blue, and Papaya colors.

2022 Porsche Macan GTS SUV Exterior

5.0/10

The exterior design of the 2022 Porsche Macan is as Porsche as it can get. The 2022 model has been redesigned from the front and the rear to remain a star in the eyes of its prospective buyers. The front bumper is redesigned with integrated cooling air intakes, and the front trim is in body color. Two attractive LED headlights and sport design exterior mirrors lend it a distinctive look.

The side blades on the doors come with a 3D textured element, which further enhances the overall look. The rear profile gets a larger black diffuser that has been stretched upwards, and quad exhausts are covered in black tips to amplify its sport character. The stretched LED taillight remains more or less the same and looks sleek as ever. The 21-inch RS Spyder design alloy wheels complement the updated styling very well.

*Expected, 2021 data used for comparison 

The Macan GTS is not the lightest in the competition, but it offers agile handling and better drivability than some of its rivals. It comes with a 7.4-inches of ground clearance and is sufficient for most driving instances. It sits on a shorter wheelbase as compared to its rivals, which gives it a more agile nature. The GLC 63 and F-Pace SVR are bulkier and sit on a longer wheelbase. Some of the standout exterior features are:

  • LED headlights with 4-point DRLs
  • Clear LED taillights 
  • 21-inch RS Spyder design alloy wheels
  • Sport design side skirts 
  • Sport exhaust system with black tailpipes
  • Sport design exterior mirrors

2022 Porsche Macan GTS SUV Safety

6.0/10

Like many other expensive cars, the 2022 Macan GTS is not crash tested by agencies like NHTSA or the IIHS, and we don’t expect it to be tested anytime soon. However, looking at the history of Porsche, we believe that the new Macan GTS will be well-built and offer adequate safety. The structure of the Macan is made up of deformation zones in the front and the rear along with side-impact door beams in the doors to prevent side impact from reaching the occupants. 

The 2022 model comes standard with features like lane departure warning and ParkAssist rear view camera. In addition to some passive features, you can opt for optional safety features like self-steering ParkAssist, lane keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, lane change assist function, and adaptive cruise control as well. Some of the standout safety features are:

  • Lane departure warning 
  • ParkAssist rear view camera
  • Side-impact door beams 
  • Front and rear crumple zones 
  • Automatic hold function 
  • Optional adaptive cruise control
  • Optional blind-spot monitoring system

2022 Porsche Macan GTS V/S 2022 BMW X3 M 

The BMW X3 M offers better output figures than the Porsche Macan GTS. It also offers better cargo capacity as well. The interior space is also slightly better than the Macan GTS. The Macan GTS is more fuel-efficient than the BMW X3 M. The real USP of the Macan GTS is its handling. You’ll never feel the bulk when tossing it around the corners. The new updated exterior styling on the Macan GTS just makes the whole deal sweeter, and we would pick it over the BMW. 

2022 BMW X3 M 

2022 Porsche Macan GTS V/S 2022 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63

The Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 offers better performance than the Macan GTS. Despite better output, it delivers nearly the same fuel efficiency as that of Macan GTS. The infotainment system is also better on the GLC 63 with compatibility for Android Auto as well, which the Macan GTS bluntly skips on. The GLC 63 is slightly on the heavier side and handles well, but the Macan GTS is unbeatable in this regard. However, the Macan GTS looks more sporty than the GLC 63 from any angle you look at it, and to choose one between the two, narrows down to your personal taste.

2022 Porsche Macan GTS V/S 2022 Jaguar F-Pace SVR 

The Jaguar F-Pace is equipped with a bigger engine and offers more firepower. However, the performance is very closely matched with the Macan GTS. The F-Pace is nearest to the Macan GTS in terms of its pricing. The F-Pace comes with better ground clearance and the highest cargo capacity in its segment, making it more practical than the Macan GTS. The F-Pace is equipped with a larger fuel tank, offering more miles in the city and on the highway compared to the Macan GTS. Here too, Porsche offers better handling of the two. 

2022 Jaguar F-Pace SVR 

 

2022 Porsche Macan GTS SUV Final Verdict

The 2022 Porsche Macan GTS is not your average midsize SUV. It’s a special breed that offers a good blend of performance and practicality in a single package. With the updated exterior styling, better performance, and some interior updates, it is more desirable than ever. It is also expected to have a good safety quotient as well. Not many cars in the segment can come close to the handling and performance that the Macan GTS have on offer.
