Porsche Macan - Consumer Reports

Current Model
The Macan combines much of the performance and feel of Porsche's sports cars in a small SUV. Both V6 and four-cylinder turbo 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, fit and finish, and attention to detail are 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. Note that FCW, AEB, and BSW are optional.
