The 2017 Porsche Macan blends luxury and performance in the body of an SUV. As a daily driver, the Macan stops and gos with the best of them. This Porsche anyone would be comfortable taking on the 12- mile climb with 156 turns up to Pikes Peak, with three friends and their luggage on board. It's the promise of adventure that makes the Macan so desirable, and this SUV truly delivers.
Porsche offers a unique engine for each trim level in the Macan. The base Macan has a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. It is enough power to launch the Macan from zero to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds, according to Porsche. The Macan S comes with a 340-hp 3.0-liter turbo V6, which completes the same task in 5.6 seconds based on our tests. The GTS gets the same engine tuned to 360 hp, and Porsche says it will hit 60 mph in 4.8 seconds. Topping the lineup is the 400-horsepower 3.6-liter engine of the Macan Turbo. It needs just 4.4 seconds to reach 60 mph. All trims come standard with all-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Where the Macan slips is fuel economy. EPA estimates range from 22 mpg combined (20 city/25 highway) for the base model down to 19 mpg combined (17 city/23 highway) for the S, GTS and Turbo.
Quick acceleration isn't the Macan's only trick. You would be hard-pressed to find another compact luxury SUV as enjoyable or engaging to drive as the Macan, in any trim. The steering, through which its 911 lineage is apparent, is brilliant. And yet the ride remains reasonably comfortable, even when it's equipped with larger 20-inch wheels.
We are not as impressed inside the cabin. We can't complain about the look and feel. We love that the dashboard is reminiscent of other Porsche models. But in terms of practicality the Macan does not stack up as well to other SUVs in this segment. Its cargo area is smaller than those of competitors for one. And for another, it does not have the most comfortable backseat.
That said, we still consider the Macan the overall car to beat in its class. And Porsche offers it in the aforementioned trims: Base, S, GTS and Turbo. The Base starts with plenty of luxury equipment. The S adds a V6 engine and upgraded brakes and wheels. The GTS gets an air suspension and more luxury sport hardware. And the Turbo adds a substantially upgraded interior. Which Macan should you choose? Let Edmunds help find the perfect 2017 Porsche Macan for you.

Vehicle S 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 7AM)
Review after driving bmw's for the last 25 years, decided to try a Macan S. What a great decision I made....smile.......... Powerful and my Macan S 2017 is a sports car acting machine outdoing most of the bmw's I have owned..........with the possible exception of my 3 series M convertible. It is a truly great combination of practicality and driving excitement. This is a Porsche, no doubt about it, from the sound of the engine to going around 35mph corners at 60...........its a Porsche! The ride and noise in the cabin are muted and comfortable, bumps are a little harsh, but the other attributes of the vehicle are well worth the small aggravation of the semi stiff ride. After all this is not a Lexus RX. Cabin is done very well with great materials and is big enough for me, 6'3", 260lbs. I am not sure what I would do to improve this vehicle, not anything I can come up with right now. 5 stars for sure...........................yippee!!!! UPDATE: 6mo owning the vehicle, 7000 miles. double down on all statements previous. nothing about the vehicle that I can complain about. it is really a blast to drive, so much in fact I find myself taking the long way to almost everywhere I go and going for joyrides very often. I have not had my first ticket yet as I am a careful driver, but the car is so responsive it is hard to drive the speed limits. Whatever speed you are going seems to slow. Get one or test drive one, until you do, you can not possibly know what I know. It is driving heaven. UPDATE, one year later.......... all review items remain at same high levels. I find myself driving places I don't need to go just to be driving. This is truly a great vehicle and it seems priced correctly for the quality and image that you get driving a Porsche. I am very pleased with this vehicle and it will be hard to drive anything else after this experience. update: 18 months owned, 18k miles. no further comments, all of my previous comments stand as written. Great Vehicle.
