KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Richard Homan - Updated Date: 7/23/2014


There's plenty of play in the all-new 2015 Porsche Macan SUV, though it plays like a sports car rather than a stump-jumping SUV. Spirited by Porsche off of the Audi Q5 compact SUV – though the two will never be mistaken for one another – the Macan's personality owns a space best described as a luxury super-hatchback with all-wheel drive. Both 2015 Macan models – the 340-horsepower "S" and (especially) the 400-horsepower "Turbo" – get their inspiration from twin-turbocharged V6 engines matched like liquid to a 7-speed PDK automatic transmission. The Cayenne is still THE Porsche SUV, but there's a new 4-door Porsche sports car in town that can haul stuff, do light climbing, and look cool in the woods: the 2015 Porsche Macan.

You'll Like This Car If...

If driving a Porsche 911 disguised as a front-engine compact SUV sounds like the message that you want to send to the world, the 2015 Porsche Macan delivers that message lithe, loud and clear.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Sport is the all-new Macan's gift, not utility. If you need a real-live luxury SUV, you're back in Porsche Cayenne territory (similar starting price of around $51,000), or the less expensive, less powerful Land Rover LR2.

What's New for 2015

The 2015 Porsche Macan is an all-new compact SUV – never been seen before on this planet and unprecedented for Porsche.

Driving It Driving Impressions

High-performance valentine: Pair a Porsche-designed twin-turbocharged V6 (Macan S: 3.0-liter/340-horsepower, Macan Turbo: 3.6-liter/400-horsepower) with the 7-speed Porsche PDK automatic transmission. The PDK's "Sport" button ups the Macan's redline and shift points, adds more snap to the shifts, and puts more growl into the exhaust note. Fitted with electronically controlled all-wheel drive and 19-inch wheels, the new Macan takes to the track like a natural, despite weighing well over 4,000 pounds. The Porsche Active Suspension Management system (PASM) – standard on the Macan Turbo, optional on the S – further tightens up the suspension and the already-responsive electric steering for even sharper handling. There are few cars – and far fewer SUVs – that can waltz so cleanly into high-speed corners without a hint of unpredictability. On the open road, the Macan keeps luxury-car quiet while boasting a 5,291-pound towing capacity. The center-console-mounted "Off-Road" button varies shift points, all-wheel-drive torque distribution, and throttle response for optimal traction off the pavement.

80-PERCENT 911, 20-PERCENT CAYENNE, 100-PERCENT PORSCHE
In conversation, Porsche Style VP Michael Mauer insisted to us that the 2015 Macan SUV is not so much a baby brother to the Cayenne as it is a "big brother to the 911." One hot lap, one twisty road in a Macan is all the high-performance proof you need.

7-SPEED PDK AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
All the engine in the world won't help if your transmission can't keep up. The Porsche Macan's 7-speed dual-clutch automatic wastes no time, using the first clutch to engage the gear powering the Macan while the second clutch stands at the ready to instantaneously engage the next gear in line.
