Porsche Macan Review

The Porsche Macan is the most popular Porsche in the UK. The German manufacturer nailed the brief first time, this goes some way to explaining why it’s such a popular used car too.
This is a car that doesn’t come with any major compromises. It comfortably seats 5 with a huge boot, it can venture further off-road than 99% of owners would dare to go and it can tackle twisting roads with more skill than the majority of drivers are brave enough to test. The diesel model provides a huge amount of torque, making this car feel as quick as you’d expect from any used Porsche.
The interior is typical Porsche plenty of buttons fill the dash, and everything is built to impossibly high standards with chunky metal trim and switchgear that operates with a satisfying thump. You sit low, gently hugged by the sports seats and facing a stunning 918 Spyder-inspired steering wheel. If it wasn’t for the raised ride height, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re in a Cayman!
While this is a seriously quick car, it doesn’t force you to drive it like you’ve stolen it. The standard seven-speed PDK gearbox is silky smooth, the V6 diesel takes a back seat when you’re pottering about; it’s eerily quiet for a diesel too. Put your foot down however and it displays some of the characteristics of a petrol, this is an engine that’s happy to bounce of the limiter.
The main draw of the engine though is the 580Nm of torque from as little as 1500rpm. Slip road take-offs and overtaking has never been so easy! This turn of pace is all the more surprising when you can still hold a conversation while pushing on. The sound deadening is wildly impressive making the Macan a great long distance cruiser too; a further reason the Macan represents such a good buy on the used market!
