Surprised How Great This Car Is !

I leased this car mainly due to it's looks and color. I didn't need a new car as I had just gotten a new car 2 weeks before. But what has surprised me is how great it performs. I wasn't expecting performance from the 2.0 liter 248 hp engine but it gives much stronger performance than you would ever think. This is the base model. You don't need an S or Turbo. With the full leather interior, 20" Spyder wheels & Sapphire Blue color it feels and looks terrific. However the park assist program which is standard; doesn't work even after it was replaced. You have to turn it off every time you start the car. I asked Porsche to disable it but they won't do that. I haven't found an independent service shop here since I recently moved to this area but when I do I will have it disabled thru the computer. Besides this one thing I highly recommend this car.


Beautiful Automobile, high quality.

Incredible ride and handling for a Crossover. No other brand of crossover compares to the Macan. I would buy this car again. The only negative is the pricing for options.


Most reliable car I’ve owned, I love it!

This car meets all of my needs! Drives great! My kids love it, great traveling car! Beautiful inside n out, so comfortable , love it


Ultimate Small SUV

The SUV market is pretty crowded these days, and there are many good choices out there. I chose the Macan because it was right sized for my application. In addition, it has the right balance of performance and luxury for me.


New to the Porsche Family

After 45 years of driving Saab's (after considering alternatives at each purchase), time ran out on that option. After considering several alternatives, I became a member of the Porsche family and owner of a Macan this past week. The attributes I valued most in my Saabs - confident steering and handling, seamless acceleration at any speed, and easily controlled braking are easily equal or superior in my new ride. The overall driving experience is more than satisfying to me, I'm very, very pleased. The only negatives are a slightly stiffer suspension and cabin storage space; although compliant and not jarring, the ride vs handling is not quite the perfect balance of the Saab sedans and sportswagons I have owned, but better than the Mercedes 230 and Toyota 4-Runner my wife drives. The other nit-pick is the lack of storage space accessible to the driver. Ignore the stars on reliability; I can't submit this review without assigning a rating. We'll see if the reliability matches Porsche's recent rankings, and if I can get the same high mileage reliability I got from my Saab's (1990 models and later). With the extended, 64 month warranty that came with a certified preowned, that concern is just a curiosity at this point in time.


Love the smooth handling and clean look.

Long time BMW owner. This car exceeded my expectations. After driving the Macon S, buying a BMW X3 or X5 was not an option. The Macon interior is better quality and the exterior look is much more appealing than the boxy BMW look. If you are looking for handling, Porsche edges out BMW in my opinion. Also own a M3 and am looking to swap into a Porsche Cayman.



The Macan meets all my family's needs. It's stylish and sleek. A very comfortable ride. It has plenty of leg room and space for additional passengers and transporting larger items. It's features are incredible, especially the heating and cooling seats. The built in Bose system provides great sound. If you're looking for a vehicle that has it all, but isn't too large but large enough, look no more. The Macan is it.


Best Driving car I have ever owned.

Fit and finish is Porsche excellent. Awesome driver. Incredibly quiet interior. Exceeded my expectations in every way. I would buy another Porsche again, and I have owned BMW, Lexus, Mercedes.


Tough to beat the Porsche Brand on any aspect

Beautifully designed and engineered. Silent cabin, nimble athletic and thoroughly enjoyable to drive. Porsche Exchange in Highland Park offered a simple comfortable and professional purchasing experience. Extremely easy to work with.


I want to marry my Porsche Macan!!

Great, more than great. I have never loved anything as much as I love this car. Reliable, roomy, comfy, classy, and everything in between. I would buy this again and again and again!!!
