Efficiency-enhancing measures

Auto start/stop function

To improve fuel economy, the auto start/ stop function switches off the engine when you are coming to a stop at traffic lights, for example.

Standard in all Macan models.


The coasting function enables you to save even more fuel where the situation allows. The engine is decoupled from the transmission, which avoids the deceleration caused by engine braking. In this way, the vehicle makes optimum use of its own momentum and is able to coast for longer distances. This has real benefits for fuel consumption without any impact on comfort or sporty performance.

Standard in all Macan models.

Thermal management

Engine cooling is prevented during the initial stages of a cold start so that the engine reaches its optimum operating temperature faster. This means it can begin working at high efficiency sooner, thereby consuming less fuel.

Active aerodynamics

The radiator grille shutter opens the cooling air flaps only as needed. Whenever the cooling requirement is low, such as on relaxed drives, the radiator grille shutter closes. Aerodynamics are improved, which helps to improve fuel economy. If, for example, a sporty driving style is adopted and the demand for power increases, the cooling air flaps will open and let in the necessary amount of cooling air for increased driving performance.

Electrical system recuperation

To enhance efficiency, the electrical system in the Macan models is recharged on demand during engine overrun phases. Fuel consumption is thereby reduced, while the full power output of the engine is made available for acceleration phases. You won't notice anything of the process itself, except for the results: optimum power and torque with lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
