What used Porsche Macan 4x4 will I get for my budget?
Macans hold on to their value well, so there are few bargains around yet. A figure of around £35,000 is the current starting point for a good, average-mileage Macan, bought from an independent dealer. This will get you a 2014 car with a full service history, most probably the diesel version. Up the ante to between £36,000 and £40,000 and you’ll snap up a 2015 car, of either the petrol or diesel variety, while £41,000-£45,000 will see the occasional 2016 car as well as earlier examples of the super-quick Turbo models, all bought from an independent or franchised dealer and with a full history.
How much does it cost to run a Porsche Macan 4x4?
It’s the 3.0-litre diesel that’ll cost you the least to fuel, with a claimed average fuel consumption of 46.3mpg. In our own True MPG tests, which echo real-world driving conditions, we actually returned an astonishing figure of 40.7mpg – exceptional for a heavyweight SUV and very close to the government's claimed figure. Naturally enough, the petrols don’t do so well, with the 2.0-litre four-cylinder car recording the next best claimed figure of 39.2mpg. Expect to see around 30mpg as claimed averages for the other sportier models.
All Macans cost in excess of £40,000 new, so those registered after April 2017 will attract an additional annual road tax premium. Those registered before that date all have fairly high CO2 emissions, so will be costly to tax, too. Insurance groups range from 37 to 46, so no Macan will be cheap to insure. Servicing costs will be high, too, as will the price of spare parts.
