2017 Porsche Macan vs. 2017 Porsche Cayenne

2017 Porsche Macan Blue


2017 Porsche Cayenne Grey


Drivers looking for spacious elevated seating within a richly fitted cabin should look no further than Porsche Orland Park. The 2017 Porsche Macan and the 2017 Porsche Cayenne jointly represent the leading edge of modern SUV design, uniting conventional power with a whole new breed of luxury. That said, you might be unsure which model would best fit your needs, but we can help.

Power and Efficiency

You can expect to enjoy a commanding presence across the roads of Frankfort and Crown Point behind the wheel of either the Porsche Cayenne or Porsche Macan, though they do differ slightly in terms of power and efficiency.

As standard, the Porsche Cayenne generates up to 300 hp from a 3.6L V6, while the Porsche Macan uses a 252-hp 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder. That reflects the Cayenne’s more rugged nature, but the Porsche Macan pulls ahead when you turn to efficiency, with scores reaching 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway vs. 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway with the Porsche Cayenne.

Space and Style

The 2017 Porsche Macan and the 2017 Porsche Cayenne each make room for up to 5 passengers, but the former isn’t quite as spacious if you’re looking for extensive cargo room; there’s up to 17.7 cubic feet as standard or 53 cubic feet with the rear row folded vs. 24 cubic feet or 63 cubic feet with the Porsche Cayenne.

Again, the difference reflects the Porsche Cayenne’s more adventurous nature. If you want to stick to the city, the extra cargo space won’t feel quite so important.

2017 Porsche Macan Space


As luxury SUVs, neither the 2017 Porsche Cayenne or the 2017 Porsche Macan lacks for premium amenities, with the following coming standard:

  • 7-Inch Touchscreen Display
  • Premium 10-Speaker Sound System
  • Power Liftgate

The Porsche Cayenne delivers dual-zone automatic climate control as standard instead of the three-zone climate control included with the Porsche Macan, but there’s very little to separate the two in any substantial way. Expect the very finest from any Porsche nameplate.
