2019 Porsche Macan vs. Its Competition

2019 Porsche Macan
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The Macan is a sport sedan in crossover guise.

Audi’s SQ5 comes close for power and agility, but it’s not quite a Porsche.

The BMW X4M is faster and almost as nimble, but less practical than the Macan.

The GLC-Class offers performance models that include a rowdy V-8 that will smoke the Macan in a straight line but costs quite a bit more.

The Range Rover Velar is a handsome alternative that is soon to offer a V-8 performance variant as well, but it isn’t as athletic.

Alfa Romeo’s Stelvio lacks the polish and reliability of a Porsche but you can get it with 505 hp.
