If you’re looking for the experience of a luxury vehicle but need something that’s more compact, we have just the right thing for you here at Porsche Orland Park: A Joe Rizza Dealership. We’ve lined up the 2015 Porsche Macan and the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class to point out all their distinguishing characteristics. Here’s a glimpse into why we think you’ll find that the Porsche Macan is a true leader in the compact luxury crossover vehicle segment.


With the new Porsche Macan, you’ll feel the ease and style of a true luxury vehicle, with the added appeal of a more sporty configuration and overall driving experience. Now there’s no reason the satisfaction of a luxurious feel and an exhilarating drive can’t be had at once.

These athletic vehicles are sure to bring excitement to any drive. The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class SUV is slightly larger but with a little less power. With its direct injection 3.5L V6 engine with ECO Start/Stop, the GLK-Class will deliver 302 hp. But if you’re looking for a little extra boost, you’ll find it with the Macan. Here’s a look at some of its standard performance specs:

  • 3.0L Twin Turbo V6 engine
  • 340 hp
  • 339 lb-ft of torque
  • 0 – 60 mph in just 5.2 seconds
  • Up to 23 mpg on the highway

And with the Macan’s multi-link front and rear suspension, torque is better allocated to all four wheels, giving you more precise handling, no matter the terrain.


When it comes to athleticism and sporty styling, both the GLK-Class and the Macan are built to impress. The elegant and muscular sculpting of the Mercedes-Benz model gives it an air of rugged strength while keeping things refined. The exterior styling in the Macan is the pinnacle for combining accents that are both sleek and sporty. The large intakes in the front fascia exhibit the Macan’s ability to roar on the road. And while the overlapping hood extends to the wheel arches, making it reminiscent of the legendary Porsche 91, a distinctive sloping roofline is added for a more modern and daring edge.


These crossovers feature several innovative technologies for better, safer, and more eco-friendly driving experiences. The GLK-Class offers features like Blind Spot Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, and Distronic Plus radar technology to monitor the flow of speed and traffic. Here are a few of the technologies highlighting the Macan:

  • Auto Start/Stop function to improve fuel economy
  • Thermal management for more efficient engine cooling
  • Active aerodynamics for increased driving performance
  • Electrical system recuperation to reduce fuel consumption
