Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2021 Porsche Macan Overview

Anthony Sophinos
Automotive Editor - January 19, 2021

What's New

Other than newly standard Apple CarPlay, the 2021 Porsche Macan remains unchanged from last year. That's a good thing in our book. This crossover, while expensive, remains one of the finest-driving examples of the breed. Performance is excellent, as is nearly everything else. Its heavy price tag continues to buy no compromises and a benchmark experience.

Choosing Your Porsche Macan

Porsche divvies up the Macan into four trim levels: Macan, S, GTS, and Turbo. Pricing starts at $53,450 including destination for the base model and climbs to $85,950 for the Turbo.

Engine Choices

The base Macan makes do with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder not unlike the rest of the segment, but the three different V6s found in the higher models represent much more potent options.

Engine TypeTrim LevelHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.0L Turbo 4-CylinderMacan248 hp273 lb-ft21 mpg
3.0L Turbo V6S348 hp354 lb-ft20 mpg
2.9L Twin-Turbo V6GTS375 hp383 lb-ft19 mpg
2.9L Twin-Turbo V6Turbo434 hp406 lb-ft19 mpg

Every engine in the lineup gets paired with all-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, known as a PDK in Porsche verbiage.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Macan seats five passengers. The rear compartment is cramped compared to similarly sized competitors, so don't expect room to stretch out. Taller passengers will want to sit up front. The cargo area isn't much better, with only 17.6 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and 52 cubic feet in total. Both of these figures are well below the class average.

Safety Features

The only standard safety features outside of airbags and the like are parking sensors and lane departure warning. Automatic emergency braking, a surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, and lane keeping assist are all available a la carte.

Connectivity

The base touchscreen measures 10.9 inches across and now comes standard with Apple CarPlay (finally). As before, the touchscreen gets Bluetooth, navigation, and wi-fi hot spot capability. Multiple USB ports allow for easy wired connections from both rows of seats.

Macan - From $53,450

The base Macan isn't the most well-equipped vehicle for the price, but Porsche has never claimed to be a good value. The stingy list of standard features does include tri-zone climate control, leather upholstery, and eight-way power-adjusted seats. The exterior sports 18-inch wheels and LED lights.

As is always the case, options are plentiful – almost overwhelmingly so. Nearly everything imaginable is available, from Burmester audio to genuine leather upholstery to colored-keyed seatbelts.

Only two option packages are available: the $4,720 Premium Package and $7,400 Premium Plus. The former includes keyless entry, a panoramic roof, lane keeping assist, Bose audio, and heated front seats, and a dynamic lighting system; the latter adds to that ventilated front seats, a surround-view camera system, and 14-way power seats with memory.

Macan S - From $61,550

The main selling point of the S trim is its turbocharged 3.0-liter V6. Almost no additional standard amenities are added over the base trim.

With the bigger engine comes more enticing performance options. Buyers can order adaptive dampers ($1,370), an air suspension ($2,750, and includes the trick dampers), and torque vectoring ($1,500).

Macan GTS - From $73,450

The GTS represents Porsche at finest, blending performance with usability in an utterly seamless. This proves just as true with the Macan as it is for any of the brand's sports cars. Its 375-horsepower, twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 sings out of a standard sport exhaust system. Larger brakes hide behind 20-inch wheels. The chassis features a standard air suspension and adaptive dampers. The front and rear fascias as well as the side skirts are sportier than the ordinary models and are unique to the GTS.

The interior also gets some upgrades over the lower-spec models, including leather-and-Alcantara upholstery and heated and eight-way sport seats with additional bolstering and memory functionality.

Turbo - From $85,950

The Turbo is absurdly fast and absurdly priced. Thankfully, Porsche include a few more standard creature comforts to go along with the 434-horse 2.9-liter V6. The amenities include 18-way power seats, a heated steering wheel, an Alcantara headliner, and 14-speaker Bose audio. High-performance surface-coated brakes are standard as well.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2021 Porsche Macan S trim is probably the best choice for most folk, though anyone flush with cash should spring for the GTS. Either way, keep it light on the options – we'd just get the Premium Plus package and be done with it. The standalone stuff adds up quick if you're not careful.
