The 2017 Porsche Macan marries the spacious, comfortable interior cabin of an SUV with the sporty, athletic performance that has made the Porsche name so legendary. The Macan delivers the luxurious and dynamic experience that Tinley Park drivers need. With its sleek, rounded exterior style, the Macan is bound to turn heads. Take a look at this side-by-side comparison with the 2017 Audi Q7, and see for yourself how elegant the Macan is when you test drive it at Porsche Orland Park.


Boasting a 2.0L inline 4-cylinder engine, the new Porsche Macan delivers 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. That enable it to hit a top track speed of 142 miles per hour, and it can accelerate from 0 to 60 in just 6.3 seconds. Its VarioCam Plus system helps it operate at peak performance, and, with its Porsche Traction Management system, its handling remains sporty and nuanced. With a sport suspension, the Macan maintains a smooth experience, but it does so without sacrificing intuitive handling. And with an EPA-estimated 25 miles per gallon highway, the Macan delivers impressive fuel economy as well.  Overall, the Macan delivers a well-rounded experienced that balances comfort and handling.

By comparison, the 2017 Audi Q7 does offer raw power. With a 6-cylinder, 24 valve TFSI engine, the Q7 offers 333 horsepower, but because it is nearly 1000 pounds heavier than the Macan, the Q7 can only hit a top tack speed of 130 miles per hour. Similarly, its five-link independent suspension, while it affords the Q7 a comfortable ride, cannot compete with the Macan’s more intuitive and responsive suspension. The Q7 also features a significantly longer wheelbase, which keeps it from turning with the same sharp precision as the shorter Macan, significantly reducing its sportiness.


Now let’s take a look at the available features that each vehicle has to offer Orland Park drivers. First, let us examine the 2017 Macan:

  • Adaptive sports seats
  • Heated and ventilated seats
  • 14-speaker Bose surround sound audio
  • Porsche rear entertainment system plus
  • Porsche communication management
  • Porsche active safe

Next, let us see what features the 2017 Q7 has available:

  • Leather seats
  • Heated front seats
  • 10-speaker standard audio system
  • Bluetooth wireless technology
  • Audi pre-sense basic

Which Vehicle is Right for You?

The 2017 Audi Q7 offers drivers a comfortable compelling experience, but it cannot quite measure up to the 2017 Porsche Macan. The Q7 does offer more raw power, but because of an immense difference in weight, the Macan actually features the sportier ride, which is enhanced by its innovative and advanced suspension. And with a superior selection of interior comforts, the Macan demonstrates why it is the winner of this comparison.
