Porsche Macan Ground Clearance

Ground clearance (also perceived as Ride height) determines the length from the lowest spot of the car’s undercarriage and the mark of the tires’ contact with the level road. But, the manufacturer of the model might use tiny cheats to the universal measure to boast of fancy number meaning the precise distance from the shock absorbers, the engine oil pan or the muffler to the road might be lesser than specified in the official characteristics.

It is no wonder while choosy shoppers strive for an enlarged ground clearance to avoid headache when parking near the bumps or on trip through the rugged countryside. The true ride height of the model alters between 198 to 205 mm based on the year of creation and equipment. Note that a heavy- loaded car will surely miss about 1 inch of ground clearance.

Happily, the model ground clearance can be increased by using spacers for shock absorbers to help the car rest higher off the ground. While relishing a taller model, you abandon a portion of the erstwhile stability and maneuverability driving fast. Instead model ground clearance can be trimmed for the sake of improved handling and stability.

There a number of ways to increase ground clearance. When it comes to lifting or lowering your Porsche Macan you can choose between bigger tires, a leveling kit, coil spring assisters, coilovers, airlift suspension, suspension lifts, etc.
