Review

Above all, sports SUVs have to be fast and fun, and the Porsche Macan absolutely delivers on those points. Especially when equipped with air suspension, it can turn from comfortable cruiser to backroad bruiser at the flick of a switch. Interior quality impresses, too, but there are more spacious rivals out there for the money.

get the best price

As well as the features you get with the S, the GTS adds black side mouldings, a black grille, black bumper detailing front and rear, black 20in alloy wheels, and a roof spoiler. You also get upgraded LED headlights, a sports exhaust, adaptive dampers (PASM) and sports suspension that's lowered by 15mm.

The GTS uses a 2.9-litre, twin-turbo V6 engine (a de-tuned Turbo's engine, in essence) that provides an added 26bhp over the S. It certainly revs out with even more enthusiasm but, ultimately, isn't that much faster (0-62mph takes 4.9sec) considering the price jump.
