The midsize crossover Cayenne has been a valuable member of Porsche's lineup since its arrival in 2003, and in 2015, Porsche decided to build on the Cayenne's success with the introduction of the Macan. Small and agile, the compact crossover possesses the handling and power of a performance car while retaining the luxury and sophistication inherent in all Porsche models.
It competes fiercely with other top sellers such as the Audi SQ5 and BMW X3, and though it is more expensive than many of its rivals, the Macan offers plenty of bang for the buck. It has three powerful trim levels, handles difficult terrain with aplomb, and can even tow up to 5,291 pounds when properly equipped. Naturally, it comes with a host of standard and optional tech and luxury features, and like its fellow Porsche models, it is thrilling to drive on the open road.
