Have you always dreamed of owning a Porsche, but the need to haul your family around makes the 911 or Boxster too impractical? Or do you fancy an SUV but find the current range too slow? If you answered ‘yes’ to either of those questions, the Macan might be just the car for you.
You might like the way it looks, but just how practical is it? We’ve taken a look at all the vital stats to find out how it compares to its main rivals. Read our full, aggregated review of the Porsche Macan to see what the UK’s motoring press makes of it.
Porsche Macan exterior dimensions
Under the skin, the Macan shares many parts with the Audi Q5. As a result, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to discover that both measure up very closely to one another. The Macan is marginally lower and wider, but as long as the Q5 fits in your garage, you should have no concerns about the Macan, either.
Porsche Macan interior dimensions
Like the outside, interior space is comparable to the Audi. The lower, sportier roofline means rear passenger space is slightly more compromised, but it will take four adults comfortably, or five for short journeys. All occupants are treated to fantastic seats and a gorgeous cabin.
Porsche Macan boot space
Its 500-litre boot is easily large enough for a family holiday or trip to the furniture store. Fold the rear bench flat, and that expands to 1,500 litres. While both of those figures are a little lower than both the Audi Q5 and BMW X3, there are few cars on the market which are able to transport so much stuff at such an alarming speed.
|Seats up||500 litres|
|Seats folded||1,500 litres|
Porsche Macan turning circle and fuel tank capacity
Despite the relatively bulky proportions, the Macan shouldn’t be too much hassle to drive around town. The high driving position gives the driver a great view of the road ahead, while the 11.9-metre turning circle matches the X3’s.
The size of the fuel tank varies depending on engine spec, with the most thirsty Turbo fitted with the largest. The 46.3mpg-rated diesel should still be capable of the longest range – with a light foot, a full tank of diesel should return a 610-mile range.
|Turning circle||11.9 metres|
|Fuel tank||60-75 litres|
Porsche Macan weight
With an extensive equipment list, a large body with space for five, an all-wheel-drive system and powerful four and six-cylinder engines, the Macan is always going to weigh more than the average family hatchback. The figures stack up fairly similarly to its closest rivals.
|1,770kg (standard model)||1,925kg (Turbo)|
