2016 Porsche Macan GTS — Tokyo
The German automaker has always stayed true to its roots, emphasizing the “sport” in its sport-utility vehicles. That emphasis gets turned up a notch with the Macan GTS. The GTS stands out in the Macan lineup with its combination of high-gloss bodywork and matte-finish accents in the rocker areas, as well as carbon fiber trim, a lowered ride height and special 20-inch matte-black wheels. As expected, the GTS is much more machine than its visceral good looks. The chassis has been reengineered and brakes reinforced. The GTS has tighter, sportier suspension than the rest of the Macan lineup, and the 3.0-liter biturbo V6 engine gets teamed with Porsche’s PDK transmission. With 360 horsepower on tap, the Macan GTS hits 60 mph in about five seconds.
