Editor's Overview

Porsche’s 2017 Macan is a small SUV blessed with the German automaker's invigorating driving dynamics. Better viewed as a tall, all-wheel-drive hatch than rugged off-roader, the Macan is aimed at those seeking SUV functionality and sports-car performance. At roughly $50,000, price of entry is above rivals like the Jaguar F-Pace and Audi Q5.

The elegant feel for a reasonable price.

I enjoy the speed and the handling of the macan. I also like the size of this vehicle. As opposed to Porsches larger SUV. I love the color and the interior too. I have no complaints.

The car only requires service visit once a year.

The Porsche macan s exhibits agility, reliability, safety, comfort, appearance, and engine power sufficient to escape troublesome circumstances that might arise.

It is running well with power.

Likes: it is fast, well made, and handles well. Good suspension.... Dislikes: auto transmission could be better. Cramped back seat.
