Is the Porsche Macan All-Wheel Drive?
At Porsche Riverside, one of the questions that’s most frequently asked by shoppers is if the Porsche Macan is available with all-wheel drive. We’re happy to report that all four 2017 Porsche Macan models in Riverside come standard with active all-wheel drive! Whether you’re interested in the Macan, S, GTS, or Turbo, you can rest assured that you’ll have a sporty and thrilling driving experience that’s similar to what it’s like to drive a genuine sports car!
The 2017 Macan’s dynamic performance capability is thanks in part to the Porsche Traction Management active all-wheel drive system. The Porsche Traction Management system includes an electronic and map-controlled multi-plate clutch, the automatic brake differential, and anti-slip regulation. The multi-plate clutch helps to regulate the distribution of drive force between the rear axle and the front axle.
Riverside Porsche Drives Can Go Off the Beaten Path in the Macan
The Porsche Traction Management active all-wheel drive system features sensors that continuously check the rotation speeds of all four wheels, the longitudinal and lateral acceleration of the vehicle, and the steering angle. If the rear wheels threaten to spin under acceleration, the system distributes more drive force to the front. Driving conditions are constantly monitored to enable a precise and lightning-quick response depending on the situation.
For the local Porsche drivers with a sense of adventure, the Macan features OFF-ROAD mode. With the push of a button, OFF-ROAD mode is engaged, and all relevant systems switch to a traction-optimized program for off-road terrain. The optional air suspension including PASM automatically adjusts to Terrain Level, while the optional Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus and the standard Porsche Stability Management systems optimally adapt their setup for off-road use.
