Above all, sports SUVs have to be fun – and the Porsche Macan absolutely delivers. It can turn from comfortable cruiser to backroad bruiser at the flick of a switch, especially when equipped with air suspension. Interior quality impresses too, although there are more spacious alternatives and safety provisions are rather disappointing.

We reckon the Macan T is the pick of the line-up. Like the S it comes with 20in alloys, but adds the desirable Sports Chrono Package, a smaller-diameter heated steering wheel, more figure-hugging front seats and a bespoke suspension setup for sharper handling.

The entry-level Macan and the Macan T are powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine with 261bhp. The T can officially do 0-60mph slightly quicker (5.8sec vs 6.0sec), but that's purely because it has a launch control function (part of the Sports Chrono Pack) fitted as standard. On the move, both build speed at the same rate and are quick enough for most buyers.
