2020 Porsche Macan vs. Its Competition

2020 Porsche Macan GTS
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The 2020 Porsche Macan is the most dedicated performance crossover in its segment, though some competitors nearly match its athleticism.

The Audi Q5 comes close in SQ5 form, though it trades a more spacious interior for generally softer responses.

With M and AMG options selected, the BMW X3/X4 and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class are sporty choices with plenty of luxurious features.

Land Rover’s Range Rover Velar is a visual knockout, and its interior can be dressed up with exotic wares that justify its price.

For sheer sportiness, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is tough to beat, though its personality prioritizes rorty fun over refinement.

Quick Specs
The fun-to-drive small crossover is accessible by Porsche standards, but the options will cost you.
The 2020 Audi Q5 has become the default luxury crossover SUV for many drivers for a reason: it’s very good.
The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar delivers impressive performance and a stylish design.
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is comfortable and quiet, with few rivals in among small luxury crossovers.
The 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio delivers the full Italian experience in an SUV. It’s charming, engaging, beautiful, and quick, but reliability is suspect.
