Not as good as a 6-cylinder, but not bad for a 2.0 4-cylinder, to be fair.

Cheers,
Simon

Sounded a lot better than I was expecting. I had to go to the Youtube page to check if it was a "Gen 3 Base" Exhaust Sound or a Gen 3 (S ?) "Base Exhaust" Sound....if you see what I mean.

The tailpipes are a giveaway that it’s a 2.0 Macan. ;)

Sorry, nowhere near the sound of a V6 of an S/GTS/Turbo.

My neighbour says, your car sounds great whenever you drive past.

The V6’s in turn do not match a V8, it is just the way it is.

Nothing matches a gang of Harley riders in a tunnel, cr4p bikes to ride, but they do sound great.

Your 2.0 is not bad for a 4 pot though

I created a short video of the difference in exhaust sounds from my GTS GEN 3.
