Porsche Macan vs Porsche Cayenne: practicality
They're two of the most desirable SUVs on sale, but which of these sporty and luxurious models is the better buy?...
Space and practicality
Front space, rear space, seating flexibility, boot
However, it’s rather different in the back. Head and leg room are more restricted in the Macan, and anyone over six feet tall will find their knees brushing the back of the seat in front. Two larger adults will be absolutely fine in the back of the Cayenne, while three can fit easily enough, whereas they’ll find it a squeeze in the Macan.
Although the Cayenne’s boot is broader and longer than the Macan’s, it’s much shallower, due to the battery under the floor. As a result, it can hold only seven carry-on suitcases, whereas the Macan can take eight.
Both have handy 40/20/40-split rear seatbacks, though. And in both those seatbacks lie almost flat, with no step up from the boot floor.
