Wife currently drives a Q5, and we're thinking about replacing it with a petrol Macan.

Interested in any experiences/recommendations on the various 6 cylinder versions out there? Fresh ones appear to have the  VAG 2.9 litre engine,  while previous options included a 3.0 l, and earlier a 3.6?

And info appreciated.


At the first facelift, they switched from the unique to Porsche V6s (3.0 and 3.6, both twin turbo) to the Group shared 3.0 single turbo and 2.9 twin turbo V6 units. There were 3.0 V6 TDI powered models available in the earlier years, but Porsche ditched all diesel variants after 'dieselgate'. The base model uses the Group 2.0 TSI I4.


Thanks @rambo_005

Is there any consensus as to the merits of the unique to Porsche 3.0 and 3.6 engines, vs the VAG 2.9?
