What used Porsche Macan 4x4 will I get for my budget?
Macans hold on to their value well, so you'll still need to pay quite a bit for even an early example. A figure of around £20,000 to £25,000 is the current starting point for a good, average to high-mileage Macan, bought privately or from an independent dealer. This will get you a 2014 or 2015 car with a full service history, and will most probably be the diesel version.
Up the ante to between £30,000 and £35,000 and you’ll snap up a good 2016 or 2017 car, of either the petrol or diesel variety, with a full history and reasonable mileage, while £36,000-£45,000 will get you into a 2018 or 2019 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. Expect to pay upwards of £45,000 for a post-facelift 2020 car.
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, recorded under the older NEDC testing regime. 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 under the more generous NEDC tests. Expect to see around 32.1mpg from the S model and 29.1mpg from the turbo.
The latest post-facelift were all rated again under the later, tougher and more realistic WLTP regime that saw figures tumble. The 2.0 version claims an average 28.2mpg; S models consume 25.7mpg, while the most powerful turbo drops to 24.8mpg.
The diesel and smaller 2.0-litre petrol models aren't too bad for greenhouse gasses, emitting 161g/km and 185g/km of CO2, respectively, but everything else generates rather more. The S version chucks out 204g/km, while the top-of-the-range turbo emits the most at 224g/km.
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. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here. Current rates are £145 a year for the standard rate and £320 a year for the luxury supplement.
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. Servicing is required every two years or 20,000 miles.
