The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

The Porsche Macan has a height and reach adjustable steering wheel and an eight-way electrically adjustable driver's seat, so it's easy to tailor your driving position. The seat will drop quite a bit to give you a pseudo sports-car feel, and the whole driving position feels more natural than in the Audi Q5. Of course, you can jack up the seat if you want a more commanding view.

It’s not all good news, though. You have to shell out four figures if you want the 14-way powered seat option that brings adjustable lumbar support, or even more for the 18-way version. However, the T and GTS have more supportive seats than entry-level model and the S, and with these none of our testers has complained about long-distance comfort.

Front and rear parking sensors are standard on all models. They're a great help, because the high rear screen limits your view of what’s directly behind and it can be tricky to judge where the sloping bonnet ends.

A rear-view camera is an affordable option (it’s a shame it's not fitted as standard) and a surround-view camera can be paired with a self-parking system, which allows the Macan to steer itself into parking spaces. Standard LED headlights provide powerful illumination at night.
