Compact Luxury Crossover-SUV

Porsche Macan

The Macan launched in 2015 and in its first year of eligibility it has won a Canadian Black Book Best Retained Value Award. Macan isn’t a smaller, cheaper version of the Cayenne. In keeping with its Porsche pedigree, Macan is fast with superb handling. Although AWD, the bias is directed to the rear wheels to provide driving dynamics more in-line with rear drive performance cars. Power comes from a choice of two engines; the base 3.0 litre V6 delivering 340 hp and the bigger turbo-charged 3.6 litre V6 that delivers a whopping 400 hp. The interior is as luxurious as one would expect in a Porsche, with plenty of leather and exceptional fit-and-finish. Space is comfortable, but not plentiful, so if you are looking for a family hauler, this isn’t likely to fit your needs. But for those people looking for a lot of sport with a little utility, Macan delivers.
