Porsche’s new sporty SUV
In the SUV range, German car manufacturer Porsche could already count on its Cayenne. Now, the brand can also rely on another model, the more compact, less powerful but also less expensive Macan. Closely related to the Audi Q5 from the Audi group, the Macan is a SUV with a sports philosophy that requires high performance tyres. Under the bonnet, the Macan comes with smaller engines than the Cayenne, but it is also much lighter than it.
Michelin on all terrains
As with the latest 918 Spyder, Michelin is proud of its partner status with the Zuffenhausen manufacturer. The new Porsche Macan will be fitted with tyres from the French tyre manufacturer, whether for summer tyres, winter tyres or even all-season tyres, for some specific markets.
For mild temperatures, the Michelin Latitude Sport 3 will be fitted on the German SUV. A tyre, already seen on its big brother the Cayenne, is already available in 18, 20 and 21 inch sizes.
Finally, the Porsche Macan can count on a third Michelin tyre in markets where all season tyres are frequently used. The Latitude Tour HP will be fitted on the Macan in certain regions such as the United States or Canada, for example. In Western Europe, it is not expected to be fitted.
