Review

Above all, sports SUVs have to be fast and fun, and the Porsche Macan absolutely delivers. However, it’s also a great all-rounder: luxurious, refined and comfortable.

get the best price

As with the standard Macan, the S includes 18in alloy wheels, a powered tailgate, cruise control, part-Alcantara seats (with eight-way electric adjustment on the driver’s side), three-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, a DAB radio, Bluetooth, LED headlights, a 10-speaker 150-watt stereo, lane departure warning, power-folding door mirrors and automatic lights and wipers.

Compared with the entry-level 2.0-litre, this 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 petrol produces an extra 108bhp that slices 1.4sec off the 0-62mph time (to 5.3sec). It also feels a lot more muscular from low revs, so it's more relaxing to drive when you're not racing around. It sounds smooth but it's quite thirsty, averaging between 25-30mpg at best.
