Porsche has launched the Macan R4 for a price tag of Rs 76.84 lakh, ex-showroom Maharashtra. The R4 will be the new entry-level Macan and is powered by a new four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine.

Visually, the R4 gets all the sporty bits from the Macan including 18-inch alloy wheels and brushed stainless steel tailpipes, but the window trims and brake callipers are now finished in black. For comfort, you have a two-zone climate control, eight-way electrically adjustable power seat for the driver along with electrically adjustable wing mirrors and all-four power windows. The interiors are upholstered in leather and it gets an electrically operated tailgate as standard as well.

The turbocharger on the 2.0-litre petrol runs at a massive 2 bars of boost pressure pumping 252bhp of power between 5000rpm to 6800rpm and 370Nm of torque starting from 1600rpm all the way up to 4500rpm. It gets charge-air cooling along with direct injection and variable valve timing to push it past the 100kmph mark from zero in just 6.5 seconds. The Macan R4, at an unladen weight of 1170kg, is one of the lightest Porsche SUVs and gets the torque-on-demand active all-wheel drive system mated to a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

The Porsche Macan will compete with the newly launched Jaguar F-Pace and the Mercedes GLE 450 AMG in the performance five-seater luxury SUV segment. The Porsche Macan is also available in the S trim with a 3.0-litre diesel V6 engine and the Turbo that comes with a 3.6-litre twin-turbocharged six-cylinder petrol engine.
