Macan SUV Ratings

Grade A
9/3/2014
Porsche has created the sports car of compact SUVs with the 400-horsepower Macan Turbo. It's literally peerless in performance, yet it remains surprisingly comfortable thanks to standard adaptive suspension, top-shelf seats and excellent ergonomics. The Turbo model is crazy-expensive; the S version is a far better value.
  • Performance

    Grade A
    Score 8.5
    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 easiest SUVs to drive. Lesser-known fact: Even with all this on-road performance, the Macan has impressive off-road and towing capabilities.
    • Acceleration

      Grade A
      Score 9
      A 400-hp twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 plus a seamless 7-speed transmission and good isolation make the Macan Turbo deceptively fast. Utilizing the optional launch-control feature, the Macan Turbo rockets to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.
    • Braking

      Grade C
      Score 6.5
      We didn't expect such a light and soft pedal action from Porsche. The brakes are still plenty capable, just oddly vague. All-season tires didn't help our panic-brake numbers, the Macan Turbo stopping from 60 mph in a longish 120 feet.
    • Steering

      Grade A
      Score 8.5
      Steering response and precision are better than its direct competitors, although in truth we'd still like a little more driver feedback through the steering wheel. Excellent straightline highway stability and road isolation.
    • Handling

      Grade A
      Score 8.5
      The Macan Turbo is one of the best-handling SUVs available, even when fitted with low-grip all-season tires. Standard self-adjusting multi-mode shocks provide confident and poised manners, making the Macan perform like a good sport sedan.
    • Driveability

      Grade A
      Score 9
      Engine, brakes and steering work in concert and the Macan is sized perfectly for easily getting around a city. Still substantial enough for long drives. Auto stop/start to save fuel is reasonably unobtrusive (and defeatable).
    • Towing

      Grade A
      Score 9
      Properly equipped, the Macan Turbo can tow nearly 5,000 pounds. For a compact SUV, this is rare and noteworthy.
    • Off-Road

      Grade A
      Score 8.5
      Single-button off-road mode customizes transmission, throttle and brakes for low-grip situations. A downhill assistant manages speed and our Macan's optional air suspension increases ground clearance by 1.5 inches, for a total of 9 inches.
  • Comfort

    Grade A
    Score 9
    The Macan Turbo is more highly equipped than the S model, coming with premium seats and self-adjusting multi-mode suspension. For a compact SUV, comfort doesn't get much better than this.
    • Seating Comfort

      Grade A
      Score 9
      With 18-way adaptive, heated, leather front seats (optionally ventilated), nothing in the segment comes close to offering this level of support and comfort. The rear seats are split 40/20/40 and are nearly as bolstered as the fronts.
    • Ride Comfort

      Grade B
      Score 8
      The Macan Turbo comes standard with adaptive suspension; our test vehicle was outfitted with the optional air suspension, too. The air suspension can feel floaty, but did a nice job smoothing out bumps and overcoming the 20-inch wheels.
    • Quietness

      Grade A
      Score 9
      With barely perceptible wind noise and a highly muffled exhaust note, the Macan Turbo is quiet even during maximum acceleration. This isolation is part of the reason it's so easy to exceed the speed limit. Quickly.
  • Interior

    Grade B
    Score 8
    Outstanding ergonomics and a low stance make the Macan feel like a perfectly-tailored suit. It feels "right-sized" when you drive it. Downsides: Outward visibility is hampered a bit by thick roof pillars, and the cargo capacity is small, even for a compact SUV.
    • Ergonomics

      Grade A
      Score 9
      Initially intimidating, the waterfall of buttons and rocker switches is actually an ergonomic triumph. After some familiarity, the 7-inch touchscreen navigation and audio systems become intuitive. Porsche instrumentation is the best.
    • Ingress/Egress

      Grade A
      Score 9
      The Macan Turbo, especially when equipped with the optional air suspension, sits lower than most compact SUVs. Makes for fuss-free entry/exit.
    • Space/Room

      Grade B
      Score 8
      For a small SUV the Macan feels pretty large inside, thanks to a low dashboard, ample-sized windows and plenty of passenger room. It seems Porsche focused more on people space than luggage room.
    • Visibility

      Grade B
      Score 7
      The outward sightlines are pretty typical for small SUVs, meaning not fantastic, and there are some noticeable blind spots. Optional aids will help with this, including front/rear parking sensors, rear camera and a blind-spot monitor.
    • Cargo/Storage

      Grade C
      Score 5.5
      Small-item storage is lacking, handled by modest door pockets, a glovebox and a deep, but small, center armrest bin. Luggage space is 18 cu-ft and a max of 53 cu-ft with seats folded. That's limited cargo space, even for a compact SUV.
  • Value

    Grade B
    Score 7
    We question the value of a $73,295 Macan Turbo (before options) simply because the Macan S is 95-percent the vehicle for 70-percent of the Turbo's cost. Fuel economy and warranty are also identical between the two Macan models. Our test car's $97,065 price seems almost silly.
    • Build Quality (vs. $)

      Grade A
      Score 9
      Not exactly unexpected, coming from Porsche, the Macan Turbo has an impeccable build quality. The car's construction is one of its standout features. Even the base Macan S shines brighter than any rival.
    • Features(vs. $)

      Grade B
      Score 7
      The uplevel Turbo model comes with more standard features than the Macan S, but $28,000 in options? We'd skip the $4,290 Burmester audio and $1,385 air suspension, but keep the $1,290 Sport Chrono and $1,460 Park Assist w/camera.
    • Cost

      Grade C
      Score 5.5
      With a base MSRP of $73,295, the Macan Turbo is $22,400 more than a Macan S and a few hundred dollars away from the larger Porsche Cayenne S. Most of that upcharge comes from the higher engine output and multi-mode suspension hardware.
    • MPG

      Grade B
      Score 7
      With 400 hp on tap, it would be silly to expect the Macan Turbo to be friendly at the pump. The EPA estimates 19 mpg Combined (17 City/23 Highway). We managed a completely respectable 22 mpg on the Edmunds evaluation loop.
    • Warranty

      Grade B
      Score 7
      Porsche's basic warranty and drivetrain coverage last for 4 years/50,000 miles, along with a 12-year corrosion plan.
    • Ownership

      Grade B
      Score 7
      Scheduled maintenance is not included, but there's free roadside assistance for 4 years/50,000 miles.
  • Fun To Drive

    Grade A
    Score 9
    Even a short drive in the Macan Turbo will tell you that, above all else, this is a Porsche at heart. It's quick, nimble, eminently capable and loads of fun to drive. And, this superb performance seems almost effortless. No competitors come close.
    • Driving Experience

      Grade A
      Score 9
      The traditional Porsche experience of taut immediacy with heavy driver involvement has been engineered to be mellower and with lower impact for a new type of buyer. As such, it's easy to drive, whether fast or slow.
    • Personality

      Grade A
      Score 9
      This is the more approachable Porsche. The Macan's small stature makes it look almost cute, but it's hiding an abundance of performance and superb engineering. Some may refer to the Macan as a more feminine Porsche, but it's a tiger.
