The market for small luxury crossover SUV’s is chock-full of interesting choices to choose from. Making the choice between a Porsche Macan and a Mercedes GLC might not be as difficult as you would think. Most car brands tend to focus on one or two main aspects like performance, technology, and style. None of these brands can do it quite like Porsche can.
Most importantly, a luxury vehicle of any make needs to have performance and athleticism. When it comes to Porsche, those two factors are never a problem. And don’t just take our word on it, Drew Dorian of Car And Driver says “Quickness is important in a crossover with sporting intentions, but we wouldn’t be nearly as impressed with the Macan if it weren’t for its all-around competence on the road. It feels remarkably like a sports sedan. The ride is wonderfully smooth and carefully controlled, and it’s rare for a jolt from the pavement to make itself known to the driver.”
As with all luxury vehicles, they need to maintain a more prestigious appearance every year with new styling and design cues. Eric Brandt from Kelley Blue Book says “The Porsche Macan has the spirit of a sports car, but it doesn’t forget that it’s a luxury SUV. The interior of the Macan is driver-centric, but it’s also quite comfortable for the front-seat passenger. The technology, like the standard 10.9-inch infotainment system, is ergonomically designed and user-friendly.” He also said “Exterior styling is one of the many strong suits of the Porsche Macan. Front and rear fascias have been revised, and the black side-trim panels now have a 3D texture. From Cayenne to Macan, it’s clear to us that Porsche has been doing a commendable job of translating the iconic German marque’s sporty aesthetic into the world of SUVs.”
Overall, the Porsche Macan checks all the boxes needed to be considered a great luxury vehicle. Top Gear says “The thing is, the Macan has always overdelivered in just about every department. It’ll go further off-road than most owners will ever ask, it’ll hammer down a twisting road with more skill than most drivers would have the nerve to test, and it’ll seat five in front of a class-leadingly big boot. Porsche got the Macan right first time.” Top Gear couldn’t be more correct about that.
