Overall verdict

"If you want your sporty SUV to be as sporty as it can possibly be, the Porsche Macan is the only choice. It drives with a level of polish that no rival can even come close to matching, making it terrifically enjoyable and hugely desirable. You do pay penalties in terms of practicality and standard equipment, though."

Porsche Macan Left Side View

Cynicism is a funny old thing. The cynic in you might suspect that the Macan is nothing more than Porsche being, well, cynical. After all, SUVs - especially small ones, and especially ones with prestige badges - have been flying out of showrooms for a number of years now. So surely, the Macan is nothing more than Porsche attempting to cash in on this success and get a bigger slice of the pie than the larger Cayenne can get on its own, right?


Well, maybe, maybe not. But whatever the case, that doesn’t stop the Macan being a proper Porsche. As we’ll discover, the Macan isn’t perfect by any means, but at doing the things that Porsche is famous for, it’s pretty much flawless.


Obviously, there’s one area above all others where a Porsche has to deliver, and that’s in how it drives. And on that score, the Macan is nothing short of sublime. 


It displays physics-defying levels of body control when you change direction, and with massive grip and wonderful balance from a rear-biased four-wheel drive system, it’ll simply drive away from any rival along a twisty road, putting a broad grin on your face as it does so. Even better is the steering, which just like all the best Porsches, immerses you in the action every step of the way. 


What’s more the ride is comfortable enough for family car duties, and refinement is good enough to make long stints at the wheel an absolute pleasure. All the engines punch hard, with more and more punch as you progress up the range, so performance levels are easily worthy of the Porsche badge. All in all, this thing isn’t just great to drive by SUV standards, it’s great to drive by any standard.


The other area in which a Porsche must dazzle is quality: after all, if you’re going to pay so much for a car, you want it to feel worth it. The Macan might be one of Porsche’s most affordable models, but it doesn’t feel like a poor relation, with a sumptuously trimmed and substantially built interior. 


In fairness, there are a fair few areas in which the Macan isn’t quite so dazzling. As we’ve said, it’s pricey compared with most rivals, and most of those rivals are considerably roomier, considerably more practical and considerably better equipped, particularly when it comes to safety (automatic emergency braking isn’t provided as standard, which defies belief at this money).


However, if the areas that are important to you are the areas in which the Macan does well, or you simply want to know that your family SUV is the sharpest-driving SUV on the face of the planet, the the Macan is your only choice.

Is the Porsche Macan right for you?

If you buy an SUV, chances are that you have a family. After all, if you didn’t, you could get away with driving a Cayman or a Boxster instead. However, if you want a car that’ll get as close as possible to true-blue thoroughbred sports cars like those, but still have room for 2.4 children and a family labrador, then the Macan is your best bet. 


Yes, rivals like the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Mercedes GLC are more practical, and they’re also really good to drive, but on the latter score, the Macan simply leaves everything else for dust. This is a car that can drop your kids at school and your labrador to the dog-sitter’s, and then thrills your socks off on the way to work. Performance SUVs are nothing unusual these days, but in terms of pure driving thrills, this is the best of the lot.

What’s the best Porsche Macan model/engine to choose?

That much depends what you’re after, and what your budget is. If you want your Macan to go for as far as possible between fill-ups, and you’re happy to settle for an older car, then you’ll want the diesel. It’s more than fast enough to let you enjoy the Macan’s sublime driving manners, and it’s reasonably refined, too. 


However, the diesel was discontinued in 2018, so if you’re after a newer example, it’ll have to be a petrol. The entry-level 2.0-litre is fine, but in the scheme of things, it hardly costs anything to upgrade to the S, which is faster and sounds much better. The GTS and Turbo are better still on those fronts, but there is quite a price jump to those models. For that reason, the S gets the nod from us.

What other cars are similar to the Porsche Macan?

Sporty SUVs were something of a rarity once upon a time, but not any more. Audi, BMW and Mercedes all offer powerful, performance-focused versions of the Audi Q5, BMW X3 (and BMW X4) and Mercedes GLC, respectively, so they will all have a say in where your money goes. 


Jaguar Land Rover might also have a say with the Jaguar F-Pace and the Range Rover Velar, while the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio might tempt you with its flamboyant styling and its nutcase of an engine. There are cheaper options on offer, too, such as the Cupra Ateca, which gives you lots of performance and handling ability for a fraction of the price of the rest.
