Review

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.

get the best price

The Turbo adds much more power along with 20in alloy wheel, PASM adaptive dampers, bigger brakes, a sports exhaust, 18-way memory preset front seats, leather seat trim, and a 14-speaker 665-watt BOSE sound system.

If speed is the need, you might want to consider the range-topping Turbo model. With 434bhp catapulting you from 0-62mph in 4.5sec, it has the speed; however, also with a hefty hike in the price. For us that keeps the S as the sweet spot in the range.
