The Macan combines much of the performance and feel of Porsche's sports cars with the functional package of a small SUV.
Both 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 and 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engines are available.
Though based on the previous-generation Audi Q5, the power, handling, and engine sound are true Porsche.
In fact, this is one of the best-handling SUVs we've ever tested.
The seats, controls, fit and finish, and attention to detail are all first-rate.
The firm ride is steady and controlled but not plush.
The cabin is quite snug, and the center dashboard is a dizzying array of buttons that can be confusing at first.
Though the Macan isn't meant for utilitarian tasks, it possesses impressively high towing and payload capacities.
New for 2020 is the Macan GTS version, which gets a 375-hp, 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine.
