In photos, the 2015 Porsche Macan could be mistaken for its larger Cayenne SUV counterpart at first glance. In person, there’s no confusing the bite-sized Macan for anything but a compact SUV. Its small stature is fit and athletic in typical Porsche fashion, though a little too rounded toward the rear where it loses definition under the auto-show lights. Maybe out on the road some of its curves and definition will stand out. Or it really could just be somewhat of a jelly-bean shape.

Specifications indicate the 184.3-inch Macan is a lengthy SUV among its ilk. The end-to-end dimensions don’t show up on the inside where rear-seat room is in short supply. With the driver’s seat positioned where I would drive, I have to slide my feet in diagonally to clear the rear seat’s elevated floor. Good luck fitting three adults in the backseat.
