Porsche has also been selling SUVs since 2002, namely the Porsche Cayenne. The model became a direct sales hit at Porsche. With the release of the Porsche Macan in 2015, this is Porsche's number one model in terms of sales
What distinguishes the Porsche Macan from the Porsche Cayenne? They are both SUVs with seating for five, but the Macan is slightly more compact in design. If you can do without some legroom in the back seat and some boot space, the Macan is certainly very interesting.
In exchange, you get a lighter car, which of course brings some advantages in performance and economy. Speaking of economy - there's more power in the Cayenne, but a very efficient engine suitable for everyday use in the Macan. A 2-litre turbo engine (petrol), with which low fuel consumption can be achieved.
Unfortunately, the diesel unit was completely withdrawn from the Porsche range in 2018. The Porsche Macan was also affected by this. And here it is a particular pity, because in an SUV a diesel engine makes a lot of sense.
If you are looking for a used Porsche Macan, the diesel is particularly recommended. With 3 litres of displacement, it is not only powerful but also very economical. If you have a larger tank with a capacity of 90 litres, you will easily break the 1,000 km range barrier.
In fact, the Porsche Macan is a very reliable car. Therefore, there are no special tips to make when viewing or buying it. These are quite normal things that one usually checks when buying used, there are no particular weak points as far as that goes.
However, it is important to know that a Porsche Macan is stable in price. The usual discounts on the price, as is the case with similar models from other manufacturers, are not to be found in the Porsche Macan.
If you need plenty of power, then you should opt for the Macan Turbo or GTS. With outputs of over 400 hp and a superb chassis, you can almost forget that you're sitting in an SUV and not a sports car. For buyers who care about performance, the Macan Turbo or Macan GTS is our recommendation.
If performance is not the top priority, then the four-cylinder Turbo is sufficiently powerful. With the basic Macan, you have a Porsche with sufficient space and five seats.
In between, the Porsche Macan T has been on offer since 2022. Equipped with the 2-litre four-cylinder engine, it offers a special sporty touch, both visually and in terms of equipment.
