The most comfortable SUVs Comfort.
For some shoppers, practicality is the most important aspect of a compact crossover, even one in the luxury class. With its cozy back seat and small cargo hold, it is clear the Porsche macan has a different target in mind. Sporty suspension tuning with available adaptive dampers helps make the macan the best-handling vehicle in the class, even when riding on low-grip all-season tires. Engine choices range from a fuel-efficient — yet still fairly quick — four-cylinder to a thundering twin-turbo v6 with 440 horsepower on tap. And although the cabin is not terribly roomy, it is trimmed in high-quality materials that will make owners of other luxury compacts jealous. We like this baby Porsche so much that when it was first introduced, we put money on the table and purchased a 2015 Porsche macan s for our long-term test fleet.
