Compact luxury crossovers are the preferred mode of travel for the automobile enthusiast who wants the best of all worlds: comfort, class, and capability. It is no wonder that the competition gets fierce when you compare the 2015 Porsche Macan vs. the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. Both vehicles are industry leaders for luxury, but the more recent addition to the segment, the Macan, provides the Porsche driving experience that luxury vehicle owners prefer.


Though the Evoque has been on the market for longer, the Macan hit the ground running with a more powerful, more responsive engine. The Porsche offers a turbocharged 3.0L V6 that spits out an impressive 340 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque. Of course, if you want more, you can also opt for a turbocharged V6 that provides 400 hp. When compared to the Evoque’s 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder, which offers only 240 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque, the 2015 Macan comes out at a clear advantage.

Space and Capability

Power is only part of the equation when it comes to the usefulness of a compact luxury crossover. The Porsche Macan edges out the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque with an additional 2 cubic feet of cargo space, which means more room for all of your luggage and gear wherever you travel. Speaking of luggage, even if you can’t fit it all in the Macan, this vehicle offers an admirable towing ability that clearly outstrips the Evoque, as well as faster acceleration when you need it most. Capability specifications include:

  • Macan 0-60 mph acceleration in 5.2 seconds vs. 7.1 seconds for the Evoque
  • Macan 5,291-lbs of towing capacity vs. 3,500-lbs of towing capacity for the Evoque

Interior Technology and Options

With Porsche, personalization and luxury are the name of the game, which is why the 2015 Macan edges out the competition in this category as well. A variety of interior finishes in full or partial leather are available, amounting to nearly triple the offerings of the 2015 Evoque. Standard interior features on the Porsche include adaptive cruise control and passenger power lumbar, neither of which comes standard on the Range Rover Evoque. Also, the Macan offers a lane departure warning as part of the safety package, not included on the Evoque.
