When Porsche launched their first SUV back in 2004, brand loyalists howled. The idea that a carmaker rooted in building finely crafted, uncompromising sports cars would dilute the brand DNA with something so suburban and mainstream was simply too much for Porsche purists to bear.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Even comparing the Macan to the Cayanne, the Macan drives more like a 911 from a performance perspective while still providing a smooth experience on the highway. After I bought my Macan, 2 of my neighbors drove it and they each bought one within 3 months. We all love it!"

Patrick W., PA (2016 Porsche Macan)

"This is a true sports car in disguise. Nothing like an ordinary suv. handles beautifully on twisty roads, accelerates like a muscle car, and instill absolute confidence."

Anonymous, NY (2016 Porsche Macan)

"Fantastic performance for an SUV."

Anonymous, OH (2016 Porsche Macan)

"drives and handles like a Porshe - if you've owned a porsche you understand."

KEVIN A., FL (2016 Porsche Macan)

"I've owned 12 vehicles, all bought new. Sports cars, sedans, station wagons, and SUV. This vehicle handles better than any I've ever driven. Maneuvering, stability, steering, braking are superlative. The standard 340 hp engine and double clutch automatic transmission offer excellent acceleration. Together, these features make you feel confident and safe."

A R., MS (2016 Porsche Macan)

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"the climate control is great. Cools very quickly and the ventilated seats are strong and cooling too. The car is extremely quiet and the ride is very comfortable and luxurious. It still sounds and drives like a Porsche, though! As with all Porsches though, there isn't much storage for your sunglasses, etc."

CONNIE C., CA (2016 Porsche Macan)

"The seats are adjustable in many ways. I took a 9000 mile road trip and never had any pain at the end of the day"

CHERYL D., CA (2016 Porsche Macan)

"Quietest and smoothest ride of any vehicle we have ever owned."

LENDRUM R., AB (2016 Porsche Macan)

"I am 49" tall and have had trouble getting a car with a seat high enough and wheel low enough----this car fits well and has all other features I want---speed, responsiveness, excellent handling and rides well on the freeway and in town."

Anonymous, CA (2016 Porsche Macan)

"Seats are great once you are in them but they are designed to hold the driver in place during cornering so getting into the car is a bit uncomfortable."

DON J., NC (2016 Porsche Macan)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
