Default any MY17 Macan 4-cylinder 2.0 litre reviews?

Greetings everyone


I know that the deliveries of new MY17 4-cylinder 2.0 litre Macan has already commenced in Europe and UK and soon to be in North America (June 2016?)


Those who have tested or bought it, please post your reviews here.
There seems to be a lot of heated opinions re Audi/VW 2.0 engines Macan so I want to hear from those who have actually driven it chime in with factual opinions.


Thanks!

Driven one.

Gutless, a Beamer 118D outdragged it.

50-70 mph acceleration about the same as a London bus.

The only Macans I would have are the Turbo, GTS and SD.

I have an SD, it will eat the 2.0l and not even notice.

Did't know London bus is so powerful nowadays

Just received my My17 2.0 3 weeks ago and will say is a very lively CUV that pull very nicely. Been owning few VAG 2.0 ride like EOS and GTi, it is definitely more light footed as compare to EOS and not too far from the older GTI except that GTi is so much lighten hence picking up speed much easier. Comparing to the same class like Evouqe and NX200t, much much better and not feeling running out of breath and the 7sp PDK work like a gem with this 2.0.

My thought here is we have to have good Apple to Apple comparison and not with engine that is at least 100bhp above. I have the '16 GT3RS, it makes other 911 Carreras and S ride looks like a London bus, but It's just a different class ride for comparison. The 2.0 ride is an easy to drive spirited CUV especially good for city driving and with speed trap all over our small island where I stay, it way sufficient. The 2.0 VAG engine is also a work horse that has not failed me the past decade.

The Macan 2.0 is faster than all other similar SUVs with 2.0T, such as Q5, X3, NX, Evoque, GLC, etc.
