Pros
Tough-hatch lines
Ample cargo bin
Wonderfully taut handling
Tech options aplenty
Brisk 2.0-liter acceleration

Cons
Busy, space-robbing dash
Firm seats, if you’re not into that
Not much SUV, if you’re into that

The 2020 Porsche Macan comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 7-speed automated manual. Turbo returns to the lineup with revised engine, more power.Offers optional upgrade to tungsten carbide-coated brakes.

Pros
Quick acceleration regardless of engine choice
Most athletic and engaging SUV in the class
Surprisingly comfortable and composed ride
Easy to customize thanks to a long list of individual options

Cons
Less rear legroom and cargo capacity than many competitors
Options and packages can add up quickly

Porsche facelifted the regular Macan for 2019 and chose to skip a model year before releasing the updated Turbo version for 2020. Along with the massaged appearance and slightly revised interior that debuted with the 2019 Macan, the Macan Turbo receives a slew of newly standard features and an all-new engine. Its twin-turbo V-6 is downsized from 3.6 liters to 2.9, yet horsepower increases from 400 to 434. Porsche claims these performance updates make the 2020 Macan Turbo quicker and faster.

Pros
Ridiculous performance,
fine interior,
myriad personalization options.

Cons
Compact cabin space,
meager cargo area,
costs a pretty penny.
