Porsche Macan review - MPG and running costs
The lack of a diesel or hybrid harms efficiency. The petrols do get close to their official figures, though
With a diesel engine no longer offered in the Macan range, it falls to the 2-litre four-cylinder model to offer the highest economy figures. ‘High’ is a relative term, as while up to 28.2mpg isn’t bad for such a heavy vehicle, nor is it impressive outright these days, and the corresponding 185g/km of CO2 means a fairly punchy first-year VED bill is included in the on-the-road price.
The numbers steadily diminish from there, with the Macan S achieving up to 25.7mpg combined and 204g/km and the Macan GTS 25mpg and 218g/km of CO2. On the plus side, real-world figures do seem close to these official WLTP estimates, with numbers in the mid-20s to low 30s achievable in mixed driving.
