Porsche Macan is the German sports car manufacturer's most popular model. Not the 911. The 2019 Porsche Macan was given a face lift, which includes some new headlights, colors, wheel design, and a less powerful 2.0 litre engine to meet emission standards. Two litres are nothing extraordinary in the SUV segment, but is it enough for a Porsche?

Starting price: 60 000 euro
As tested: ~85 000 euro

      it's no coincidence that so many reviews now are rating the four as the best version. If the reviewer has reached the point of complaining that bottles stand to tall in the cup holder when there is a dedicated bottle holder in the door, I'm not sure he's a reliable reviewer.

      Are you seriously complaining about be keyless entry having a twist key instead of a push button when it performs the same function?
      It's also built that way because when the vehicle battery dies and you have to use the slide-out emergency key to enter the vehicle to jump start it, or if the battery dies in the key fob, you'll just pull that twist ignition key out and put your dead key fob into that space and be able to start the car. Saving you from having to call roadside assistance, which sometimes could take hours depending on where you are.

      Just a a typical YouTube review with no understanding of porsche can you argue with Porsche’s best selling vehicle beating the 911 and all others for sales or are we all wrong so many people just like the sound of there own voice and a YouTube channel nothing of any real content here.

      Good review - We are just about to take delivery of a 2.0L Macan fully loaded (ex-demo) however it’s only used on the school run and I am lucky enough yo have an F90 M5 for everyday gut-wrenching acceleration! I suspect if you weren’t aware there was a V6 350bhp engine available you would be happy regardless and let’s face it, come 2022 when all cars in Europe must abide by the speed limit it’s all pretty irrelevant anyway!

      I personally would never buy a 2.0 liter Macan with 245 hp! This is a heavy car and needs some grunt to accelerate and pass plus if you drive with heavy right foot like me I wouldn't be happy. My guess is a grocery hauler and schlepping the kids to soccer games than I guess it's fine or you want to that Porsche badge on the hood. Anyone who like performance ain't buying this because there are other cheaper suv's with more power that you can get into for less.

      Kind of funny, 4 piston calipers braked and couldn't stop.... So what happen to those SUV with 1 piston? And many are worrying about the size of the engine. 6.1 sec is not slow for a SUV. Many professional reviewers said they couldn't tell the different between base vs S for normal driving.

      In traffic all cars are the same. Unless you need want to change lane fast, and need to accelerate. Once this is up to speed, it feels the same, as the V6. But as I said, it's a heavy car, and it needs all the stopping power it can get.

      Some professional reviewers have suggested that the base model handles better than the S because the engine, which is ahead of the front axle, is considerably lighter. Also, reviewers recognize that driving in the U.S. (where I live) doesn't offer much opportunity for high speed acceleration. The S sells for a considerable premium over the base (never mind the engine options above the S), and I don't believe you've made the case to reach that much deeper into my pocket.

      I have to wonder, if Audi, VW, Porsche, Lamburghi, ECT are all going electric, why buy one over the other? With no distinguishing engine, transmission, sound, driven wheels, ect., why buy a Porsche EV SUV vs a cheaper Audi EV SUV that have the same chassis? I mean handling is going to be very similar given the weight and batteries in the floor for center of gravity.

      about 2 months ago
    • Marek Drives
      Marek Drives In reply to Blake Swan

      Good question. Weight should eventually decrease with the development of more dense and/or smaller batteries. I would assume there is going to be even more electronic tuning to make the steering and suspension feel more like Porsche or more like Audi. On the one hand I can imagine VW Group guarding their secret recipes like KFC, and on the other I can imagine more opportunities for aftermarket tuning. All you need is a laptop.

      Regarding the fake key: yeah, I hate that, but in the base Macan you get a real key-ignition: you put the key fob in that location and turn it, as normal; your model has the keyless entry *option*, which you have to pay for -- and there is a YouTube video for how you can take out that "fake key" so that you can insert your key fob normally, if you so desire.

      As for the price: 60k Euros is too much for this; here in America, our base price is only USD $50k, which translates to 44.5k Euros -- much cheaper! I would pay 44.5k Euros for this new base Macan, but not 60k Euros for it! Even with taxes here, it only comes to 47k Euros. I would love to know why there is such a big difference between the same vehicle sold in Europe vs. America.

      Two things that I hadn't noticed in the new Macan are the fake intake "vents" below the headlights and the weaker brakes -- disappointing. But I have driven both the Macan S and base Macan for model year 2018 (the previous "generation"), and I was unimpressed by the Macan S, which did not feel all that powerful and which has much worse gas mileage; I thought that the base Macan is a better buy for the money (sold here in base form for $10k less than the S).

      +Jeff S I prefer inserting a key/fob into an "ignition" switch and turning... The new keyless-entry and keyless-start systems have been shown to be very vulnerable to hacking. And putting the key in an ignition switch gives you a place to have the key while you are in the car only, so you don't forget to shut the engine and lock the car when you leave. It seems pretty lazy to me to want this keyless entry and keyless start stuff in cars, and much more inherently dangerous. (Also, I can't imagine that Porsche will have anything but keyless entry/ignition with their forthcoming EVs; they're already there in their E-Hybrids. But I suspect there will be much more potential for hacking BEVs with keyless everything because they are silent -- you won't hear an engine coming on as the hackers drive away with your car.)

      I'd just prefer a push button like a normal car has these days. I get the heritage, but let's move on Porsche. Key fobs remain in the pocket now and push a button.

      Marek Drives In reply to cba tiau

      Yes, I know you can take out the faux key and use the fob instead.
      As for the price difference, there's a hefty VAT on everything in Europe. Depending on the country its between 17 and 27 (!!!!) percent. So if we take US price 47k+19% VAT for Germany (I use German prices in my English reviews) we get about 56k, which is much closer to what you'd have to pay. The rest may result in differences in base specification across markets, probably some volume discounts, as US is one of the largest Porsche markets, etc.

      The problem is all these 2.0 ltr turbo fours are too small. Why don't they bump it up to 2.5 ltr for more horsepower and torque? This would keep the keen handling of the lighter engine. However, even with that the price of a properly outfitted Macan is a very poor value. Porsche should just stay out of the 4 cylinder arena and leave that to the less haloed name plates. With a proper tire upgrade I bet the Mazda CX-5 Signature with its 2.5 ltr turbo four could outperform this 2.0 ltr Macan.

      Porsche sells base 2-liter Macans at a rate/ratio of around 8-1 or 10-1 when compared to sales of Macan S and Macan Turbo combined. Base Macan is Porsche's bread and butter; it allows them to do lots with vehicles having larger engines, which they may not be able to do otherwise. Evidently tens of thousands of buyers are very happy that Porsche doesn't "just stay out of the 4 cylinder arena"!

      Taxes. At least in Europe in many countries engines over 2L displacement are additionally taxed. So car manufacturers either offer a significantly larger engine to make it "worth it" or try to keep it up to 2L.
