Take a closer look to discover the advantages of the Porsche option for yourself.

Porsche Performance Dominates

There’s no power struggle between the 2015 Macan and the 2015 RX. The Lexus option is outfitted with a 3.5L V6 engine, which affords 270 hp. Armed with a 3.0L V6 engine, the Porsche model generates a heftier 340 hp. While both models feature automatic transmissions, the Macan setup has seven speeds, while the RX falls short with 6. With high power and performance—benchmarks of a Porsche vehicle—the Macan delivers 339 lb-ft of torque for precise handling, another remarkable advantage over the RX, which delivers a modest 248 lb-ft of torque. Besides, when you want performance that excites, you’ll also want features that protect, such as:

  • Porsche Stability Management
  • Anti-Slip Regulation
  • Engine Drag Torque Control
  • Trailer Stability Management
  • Optional Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus
  • Optional Porsche Active Suspension Management

Luxury is Standard in the Macan

While both the Macan and the RX are supremely outfitted with the latest and greatest amenities in the luxury segment, it’s the Porsche model that still comes out on top. The best part is that you don’t have to spring for a high-end trim for these features, as the Macan is outfitted with extraordinary standard features. Although you can enjoy dual-zone climate control and premium sound systems in both, you’ll exclusively enjoy a fully-loaded entertainment system in the Macan. In addition to radio and MP3 compatibility, passengers will also enjoy a CD/DVD player if they choose the Porsche.

Style and Athleticism Inside and Out

Both four-door models have a five-passenger capacity, to comfortably seat the whole family, or your favorite group of friends. The Macan kicks automotive advancements up a notch by outfitting the Macan with the coveted Bi-Xenon high intensity discharge headlamps, integrated into the bonnet. The RX is still stuck with halogen headlights. Plus, you’ll swell with pride as you cruise around in a model that is characteristically Porsche—muscular, authoritative, and sleek. This model carries the sheer athleticism into the cabin with these exclusive features:

  • Multifunction sport steering wheel featuring 918 Spyder design
  • Multifunction gearshift paddles with buttons for audio, telephone, and more
  • Supportive racing-style seats
