It could eventually become the most popular Porsche model, but it has somewhat humble roots. Based on the current Audi Q5, the Macan is a spin-off that makes for a superior compact crossover SUV, one with more room and better performance than its kin.
At first glance, the Macan promises both Porsche performance and SUV practicality. That’s because there’s little difference in the essence of its styling from the bigger Cayenne—it’s simply scaled down to more urban-friendly dimensions. The Macan wears the usual massive set of front-end intakes, but it has a quicker slope to its rear roof pillar. The rear end’s simple and spare, with LED taillights barely intruding on the wraparound tailgate. Turbo models have squared-off exhaust tips, while Macan S models have round outlets.
