2020 Porsche Macan Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

The refreshed Porsche Macan is a pint-size surprise and is actually Porsche’s best-selling “car.” Filled with quality and performance, find out what you need to know about the 2020 Macan before buying.

By Jennifer Geiger

Porsche’s baby Macan SUV joined the lineup in 2014, got freshened for 2019 and now the Turbo model is back for 2020. Porsche says it offers quicker acceleration, a higher top speed and improved braking ability over the preceding Macan Turbo model.

Power comes from a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6 good for 434 horsepower and 405 pounds-feet of torque; it’s shared with the Cayenne and Panamera. The new engine replaces the old Turbo model’s 3.6-liter twin-turbo V-6. As with other Macan models, the Turbo uses a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission; all-wheel drive is again standard.

Porsche says the Turbo sprints from zero-to-60 mph in 4.3 seconds or 4.1 seconds when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package — marking a 0.3-second improvement in both setups. Top speed is also up for 2020: It’s now 167 mph, an increase of 3 mph over the outgoing Turbo.

Outside, the Turbo stands out from the rest of the lineup with a specific front bumper with three air intakes, side skirts, body-color exterior mirrors, strip LED foglights in front and a Turbo-specific spoiler in back. Inside, highlights include an Alcantara roof lining, 18-way adaptive front sports seats and a 14-speaker Bose sound system.

New performance-focused standards include Porsche Surface Coated Brakes, which the automaker says should offer greater stopping power compared with the old model, as well as a Sport Exhaust system and spe...

Options include a height-adjustable suspension and Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes.

The 2020 Macan Turbo starts at $84,950, an enormous $33,800 more than a base 2019 Macan and $6,700 more than the model-year 2018 Macan Turbo; prices include a destination charge, which for 2020 has increased by $100 to $1,350. U.S. dealerships will begin to stock the Macan Turbo at the end of this year.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
