2022 Porsche Macan vs. Its Competition

2022 Porsche Macan GTS
Brian Wong Brian Wong West Coast Editor

No rival quite matches the Macan’s driving prowess, though BMW and Mercedes-Benz make a noble attempt.

The M versions of the X4 and the AMG versions of the GLC Coupe offer great power and luxury trappings.

Audi’s Q5 offers more practicality with a larger interior and more cargo room, as well as the sportier SQ5.

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is also a blast to drive, though its manic nature may wear on you.

The Tesla Model Y definitely has the acceleration to keep up with the Porsche, but without the same handling proficiency.

Quick Specs
6.8
The best SUV to drive in this class, the Macan lacks more practical considerations.
6.7
The 2021 Audi Q5 crossover puts a new face on a best-selling formula that doesn’t show signs of getting old.
7.0
The 2021 BMW X4 is a crossover worth coveting, though our money would be on the more practical, cheaper, and really not much different X3.
7.0
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class can be a soothing urban oasis—or a roaring twin-turbo V-8 track star. It’s your call.
7.4
The 2021 Tesla Model Y applies the Model 3’s minimalist interface, punchy performance, and roomy design to a taller, even more spacious crossover profile.
6.6
The 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio sexy looks match its agile moves, but the interior package is compromised.
