Review

Above all, sports SUVs have to be fast and fun, and the Porsche Macan absolutely delivers. However, it’s also a great all-rounder: luxurious, refined and comfortable.

Trim: MACAN

You get a fair bit for your money with the Macan, including 18in alloy wheels, a powered tailgate, cruise control, part-Alcantara seats (with eight-way electric adjustment on the driver’s side), three-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, a DAB radio, Bluetooth, LED headlights, a 10-speaker 150-watt stereo, lane departure warning, power-folding door mirrors and automatic lights and wipers.

Engine: MACAN

The 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder offers decent performance, but for a Sports SUV is found wanting. It lacks the shove of the more powerful S, which means you have to rev it harder, and when you do that it sounds limp and uses plenty of fuel. We'd avoid it if possible.
