I did a quick comparison between the x4 3.5 and Macan S. Both appear to have similar dimensions and weight. Yet with 40 less horses and torque on the bimmer they have similar posted 0-60 times (not using SC on Macan). What am I missing?
I think the macan will be faster once we see some instrumented tests from C&D MT and the like. That said, bmw does tend to underrate HP. Note the new M4 rated at 420 HP that recently put out 421 AT THE WHEELS on a dyno. F80 BMW M3 and F82 BMW M4 Dyno and Weight. This seems to be the trend with BMW, but also with audi. Not sure what Porsche does - I'm new to the brand.
