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.

The price jump between the S and GTS looks a lot more palatable when you consider all of the desirable extras that you get. These include upgraded LED headlights, 18-way powered seats with adjustable lumbar support, a sports exhaust, adaptive dampers (PASM), air suspension and a lowered ride height that improves handling. Visual changes include black side mouldings, a black grille, black bumper detailing front and rear, black 21in alloy wheels and a roof spoiler.

Against the clock, the GTS isn't a lot faster than the S, cutting the 0-62mph time from 4.8sec to 4.5sec (or 4.3 with the optional Sports Chrono Pack). The difference feels more significant than that, though, because the GTS revs out with more enthusiasm. Plus, it sounds sweeter.
