Overview of the Porsche Macan

Learn about the Porsche Macan

Summary

Combining sporty handling with lavish interiors, the Porsche Macan offers one of the best driving experiences available in its luxury compact SUV class. Available in a variety of trims, ranging from Base to GTS, there's a style of this high-performing vehicle that's right for you. Despite its enjoyable ride, some drivers have found that the interior of the Porsche Macan is a little cramped. If you're able to make do with a smaller cabin than competing SUVs, such as the Audi Q8 and BMW X5, the Porsche Macan offers an impressive drive with athletic handling and plenty of standard features.

Safety

Starting with first-generation vehicles produced in 2015, the Porsche Macan has been fully equipped with full-size airbags for the driver and passengers alike, as well as the following safety features:

  • Traction and stability control – to reduce the chance of skidding
  • Anti-lock braking system (ABS) – to keep brakes from seizing up

While newer models of the Porsche Macan integrated active driver assistance technologies, such as frontal collision warning and blind-spot monitoring, the standard 2015 model did not include these.

Interior

Throughout the years, Porsche has been well regarded for its modern and elegant interiors, and the Porsche Macan is no exception. The leather-trimmed upholstery is upscale and supportive, while standard eight-way power-adjustable front seats guarantee that the driver and navigator will feel completely comfortable on long-distance drives. The newer 2020 models take the Porsche Macan's sophistication one step further by offering a wide selection of trim accents, including brushed aluminum, wood and carbon fibre.

Technology

Since its inauguration, the Porsche Macan has been available in a number of trim options, ranging from Base to Turbo. Formerly an add-on, the tri-zone climate control system joined the following features as standard in 2016:

  • 11-speaker stereo with a 7-inch touchscreen display
  • Bluetooth and USB port
  • Heated side mirrors

Newer models also come standard with the Porsche Communication Management interface, an easy-to-use system that looks just as good as it functions.

Space

Despite offering seating for up to five people, it should be known that the Porsche Macan is a driver-oriented vehicle. The cockpit-style front layout places the comfort of the driver and navigator above that of the rear passengers. In terms of overall cargo capacity, the SUV struggles to compete with larger models, such as the Audi SQ5, but still offers up to 17.7 cubic feet with the rear seats in use. When those rear seats are folded down, this total increases to 53 cubic feet for jobs that require some serious space.

Comfort

Above all else, the Porsche Macan excels in its ability to deliver a memorable driving experience. While the standard 2015 engine is powerful enough to reward drivers with a sporty and responsive feeling, newer models and higher tiers offer an experience that is similar to Porsche's sports cars. Across all models, drivers are likely to find the steering quick, the braking strong and the turning to be exceptionally stable. The 2020 Porsche Macan has even been cited as one of the best-handling SUVs available on the market today.

Pros and cons of the Porsche Macan
