The Porsche Macan SUV has been discreetly launched in India at a starting price of INR 1 crore (ex-showroom Delhi).

The sub-Cayenne SUV from the Stuttgart-based sportscar manufacturer is positioned as a lifestyle product and promises more exclusivity than the Audi Q5, Mercedes ML Class and BMW X3.

The Porsche Macan has been launched in India at INR 1 crore.

The India-spec Macan is available with two engine options. The base variant is the Macan S diesel which is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine producing 258 PS (254.3 bhp) and 580 Nm of torque while the top-end Macan Turbo is powered by a 3.6-litre V6 petrol pumping out 400 PS (394.3 bhp) and 550 Nm of torque. Both the engines are paired to a 7-Speed Porsche PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission. The Macan Turbo can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds while the Macan S diesel achieves the same in 6.3 seconds.

The Porsche Macan for the Indian market comes with standard features such as ride height adjustable air suspension system, all-wheel-drive, interior lighting package, bi-xenon headlamps, electrically operated tailgate and 3-Zone automatic climate control.

The Macan S diesel is priced at INR 1 crore and the Macan Turbo petrol variant retails at INR 1.1 crore (both prices are ex-showroom Delhi).

The global success of the Porsche Macan has left the carmaker struggling to plug the demand-supply gap. It is said that Porsche India has already found buyers for the allocated number of units for the year 2014.

    The basic cayenne diesel uses the same engine but pushes out 245 Hp, and the ON ROAD price for mumbai is 1 Cr even, whereas the Macan pushes 258 Hp and is priced at 1 Cr. ex showroom Delhi.

    Who will buy this for spending 1 crore when Cayenne is available under 1 crore? This car will fail for sure.

    Hmm.. Maybe a typo from indianautosblog or some serious strategy by Porsche.
