Above all, sports SUVs have to be fun – and the Porsche Macan absolutely delivers. It can turn from comfortable cruiser to backroad bruiser at the flick of a switch, especially when equipped with air suspension. Interior quality impresses too, although there are more spacious alternatives and safety provisions are rather disappointing. The GTS is the one we’d dream of buying, but the Macan T is a great all-rounder.

You get a fair bit for your money with the Macan, including 19in alloy wheels, a powered tailgate, cruise control, three-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, and a 10-speaker 150-watt stereo. We'd upgrade the the more generously equipped Macan T, though.

The entry-level Macan and the Macan T are powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine with 261bhp. The T can officially do 0-60mph slightly quicker (5.8sec vs 6.0sec), but that's purely because it has a launch control function (part of the Sports Chrono Pack) fitted as standard. On the move, both build speed at the same rate and are quick enough for most buyers.
