Introduction

What Car? says...

Does selling in big numbers make something good? After all, McDonald’s shifts millions of burgers, but are they the tastiest in town? Is Taylor Swift more talented than Mozart was because she’s had more number one hits? And is the Porsche Macan SUV better than the brand's sports cars because it finds its way on to more front drives each year?

We'd have to argue no in each case, but while the Macan isn't as entertaining as the Porsche Cayman and Porsche 911, it’s still a hugely impressive SUV. It's appealing to those who need something practical enough to serve as a family car but don’t want to give up the Porsche badge and the driving enjoyment that goes with it.

So, is the Porsche Macan the best sports SUV on sale today? Read on over the next few pages of this review to find out more about how we rate its performance and interior quality, how practical it is, whether the running costs are reasonable and which version is the best.

We'll also let you know how the Macan compares with its key sports SUV rivals, including the Audi Q5 and BMW X3.

Finally, once you've decided which make and model to buy, make sure you search for the best prices on our free What Car? New Car Buying service. It could potentially save you thousands on your next new car, and has some good Porsche Macan deals.
