If you’re looking for a sporty SUV that’s not as common as a BMW X3 or Audi Q5, more manageable than a Land Rover Range Rover Sport and not as boy-racer as the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, the 2016 Porsche Macan SUV is the perfect solution.


Those seeking performance and some semblance of off-road ability will be happier in a larger Land Rover Range Rover Sport or Jeep Grand Cherokee. An Infiniti QX70 offers similar power and luxury for less money.

What's New For 2016

Tri-zone automatic climate control is made standard. The attention-grabbing 360-horsepower GTS model can be found on showroom floors this year, although technically it’s a 2017 model.

Used 2016 Porsche Macan Expert Review

More agile sports car than terrain-tackling SUV, the 2016 Macan SUV from Porsche is everything you’d expect from the storied car manufacturer, and a few things you might not expect. Derived from the Audi Q5 platform, Porsche’s take on the SUV concept starts with a distinctive exterior, standard all-wheel drive (AWD) and a trio of ridiculously powerful twin-turbocharged V6 engine choices, including a 400-horsepower beast in the Turbo trim. A PDK 7-speed automatic transmission is the only transmission choice. Combining luxury, power and performance, the Macan is more a hyper-sports wagon than an off-road-ready SUV, making its primary competition the Audi SQ5, Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and BMW X3, all of which cost considerably less than the pricey Macan.

Driving the Used 2016 Porsche Macan

The 2016 Porsche Macan’s seductive styling is matched to one of three turbocharged V6 engines: a 340-horsepower 3.0-liter (S), 360-horsepower 3.0-liter (2017 GTS) and 400-horsepower 3.6-liter (Turbo). Porsche’s brilliant 7-speed PDK automatic gets gear-changing duty, an assignment it handles with ease. The PDK’s Sport button ups the fun, adding quicker shift points, more growl at the exhaust tips and a higher redline. Power is distributed to all four wheels, a good thing considering the Macan’s 4,000-plus-pound weight. On the track, the available Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) tightens an already great suspension and electric power-steering settings to create an SUV that can sweep through high-speed corners like no other, even shaming some sports cars. In everyday driving, the athletic Macan takes on a more demure side, with a quiet cabin and civilized ride. An Off-Road button on the center console optimizes traction by varying torque distribution and throttle response.

Favorite Features

Porsche’s Style VP Michael Mauer bristles at the suggestion that the 2016 Macan is a baby Cayenne. He sees it more as “a big brother to the Porsche 911.” One lap around an enclosed track proves Mr. Mauer is not prone to hyperbole.

While many tout their car’s horsepower and torque, performance potential is a moot point if the transmission can’t effectively manage the output. Porsche’s 7-speed dual-clutch automatic has no such issue, using the first clutch to hold the selected gear while the second clutch stands at the ready to instantaneously engage the next in line.

Used 2016 Porsche Macan Interior

From the base S's piano-black trim and suede-like Alcantara seat inserts to the Turbo's leather-and-brushed-aluminum, every Macan interior pampers. The front seats engulf you. Big gauges tell the scores. The multifunction steering wheel – a nod to Porsche's 918 Spyder supercar – feels sports-car ready. The view out is IMAX wide, and it's easy to see rearward traffic as well. Second-row legroom is stingy, however. Beneath the wide-mouthed rear hatch, the flat, 17.7-cubic-foot cargo floor expands to 53 cubic feet by dropping the 40/20/40-split/folding 2nd-row seatbacks. That cargo space compares poorly to SUV competitors like the BMW X3 and Audi Q5.

Used 2016 Porsche Macan Exterior

Profiled down to look a bit like a 3/4-scale Cayenne, Porsche’s 2016 Macan SUV's smaller proportions take on a more hatchback character than a compact SUV. It's not snap-recognizable as a Porsche, either. Macan spotters will note that the round fog lights and a single row of character lights below the daylight-bright bi-xenon headlights signal the approach of a Macan S and GTS, while the Macan Turbo sports integrated fog lights and two strong horizontal blades integrated into the air intakes below the headlights. GTS models have matte-black finish on the side blades and a more dynamic color scheme.

Used 2016 Porsche Macan Standard Features

Every 2016 Porsche Macan SUV comes out of the box looking for trouble with a twin-turbo V6, 7-speed PDK automatic transmission, 19-inch aluminum wheels, and dual twin tailpipes. Bi-xenon headlights give daylight-quality illumination, and a multifunction steering wheel with shift paddles ensures hands-on-the-wheel control. Also standard: tri-zone climate control and an automatic rear hatch. The Macan S features 8-way power-adjustable seats with Alcantara seat centers and piano-black interior trim, while the Macan Turbo includes 18-way-adjustable leather sport seats, 14-speaker Bose audio, an Alcantara roof liner, brushed-aluminum interior trim, and the added handling precision of Porsche Active Suspension Management.

Used 2016 Porsche Macan Options

Many of the more desirable Macan Turbo features are available as options. The absolute best of these includes a 16-speaker Burmester High-End Surround Sound audio system, a panoramic roof, adaptive cruise control, the 360-degree Surround View camera system – shows your Macan's position in space (or in a parking spot) from a bird's-eye view – and a full set of safety-tech options (blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, etc.). For the hot-shoe Macan owner, Porsche offers cross-drilled ceramic-composite brakes, 21-inch wheels, the electronic cornering optimization of Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, and the integrated stopwatch and g-force display of the Sport Chrono Package.

Used 2016 Porsche Macan Engine

Macan S models employ a 340-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 rolling out 339 lb-ft of torque, while the 2017 GTS trim uses the same engine only with 360 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. The real performance, however, comes from the Macan Turbo's 400-horsepower 3.6-liter: 406 lb-ft of low-end thrust starting at 1,350 rpm and furious acceleration right up to redline. Porsche's 7-speed PDK double-clutch automatic transmission delivers near-instant, seamless shifts. The transmission has to work a little to keep the 3.0-liter Macan S in full fly, but wastes no time getting the 3.6-liter Macan Turbo from zero to 60 mph in under five seconds. 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.

How Much Does the Used 2016 Porsche Macan Cost?

With a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price starting at about $53,500, the 2016 Porsche Macan S is virtually a starting-price-match for its bigger SUV stablemate, the Cayenne. The 2017 GTS starts close to $69,000, while the 400-horsepower Macan Turbo calls for a big jump starting at around $75,000. The Macan compact SUV is both unique and Porsche, so any "competitors," like the exquisitely talented Audi SQ5, don't quite fit into any comparison set. To get a better idea of what folks in your area are paying for the all-new Porsche Macan, consult the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price. The 2016 Macan is a relatively new addition to the Porsche stable, but so far its long-term resale values are better than those of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, Audi SQ5 and BMW X3. The Macan’s resale values even bests the Lexus RX 350 F Sport.

2017 Porsche Macan

"Outstanding styling, comfort with sport car feel"

Fit, finish, styling, quality, versatile
Back seat a little tight for 6 footers
We have owned over 20 cars and the Macan is by far the most responsive, fun and comfortable car we have had. We debated on the S and have no regrets with our base optioned up. Saved $$ and experience 28 mpg on the highway cruising at 80 mph. If you need the extra hp of the S go for it, I haven’t found where I could use it if I had it. It is an S U V not a track car but handles surprisingly sporty. Hugs in cornering, accelerates smoothly, the turbo is Amazing. PDK in sport mode adds a boost of energy when you want it. Porsche has done themselves proud with this mid sized suv! Bought certified July of 2018Read less

2018 Porsche Macan

"The name still means troubles."

Fun to drive!
Beware of system failures in traffic.
My last three cars have been Acura, BMW and now a Porsche Macan. Unfortunately the Porsche has been the most troublesome and I’ve only put 3500 miles on the car. I’ve had to return to the dealership 4-5 times with multiple electronics problem. First it was a headlight leveling issue and now for the 3-4th time I’ve returned to the dealership with the failure of the hazard warning system. Sitting in traffic, the side, forward and rear warning system alarms begin blaring. Even the rear camera and parking lines begin showing up on my screen. The car has now been sitting at the dealership for 10 days. I was promised a phone call on June 14th from the dealership with an update but it never came. If you think the name Porsche means quality, think twice. It can be as troublesome as any car.Read less

2015 Porsche Macan

"40,000 miles, needs new transmission for $19,500!"

Fun to drive
air noise, transmission breaks down
Never heard of a car needing a new transmission with only 40,000 miles, unbelievable. Not only that, Porsche wants $19,500 for a new transmission. Verrueckt! Switching to a Lexus for sure.

2018 Porsche Macan

"Almost perfect"

Handling, performance styling
Seats slightly stiff for long drives
The car is performance, plus, with a great style, handling and curb appeal. It is my fourth Macan and I prefer the GTS to any other

2017 Porsche Macan

"So far the nicest I've ever owned!,"

Comfort, style, performance,
Small back seat, Premium fuel
Bought a Certified 2017 Base w\ 26,000 miles loaded with options. The nicest car I have ever owned! The 2 liter turbo 4 cylinder is very fast and responsive. We drove 2, s model 6 cylinder turbos that were slightly faster but my opinion not worth the extra 10 k, plus highway mpg in excess of 26. Best of both worlds. Interior comfort and look the same as the s, heated and cooled front seats are amazing. The fit and finish are impeccable as you would expect from Porsche. The down side maintainance cost, oil changes close to $200. Brakes over $2500. But if you don't like that you can't afford the car to begin with. All in all 2 thumbs up. Lots of positive comments everywhere we go.Read less
