What the Critics Say

“The 2018 Porsche Macan is one of our highest-ranking luxury compact SUVs. This well-rounded SUV has a posh interior and delivers outstanding performance not only for the class but for any vehicle.”U.S. News

“The Porsche Macan Turbo is undisputedly the quickest compact SUV on the market and among the best-handling. Despite this, it is also one of the most civilized SUVs to drive. Lesser-known fact: Even with all this on-road performance, the Macan has impressive off-road and towing capabilities.”Edmunds.com
