Small rear doors in coupes

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

By: 
edmunds.com

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.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2020 Porsche Macan is unranked in Luxury Compact SUVs due to missing safety data. Currently, the Porsche Macan's overall score is not available, though its Critics' Rating, Performance score, and Interior score are based on our evaluation of 39 pieces of research and data.

Pros
Responsive steering and lithe handling
Upscale interior
Excellent predicted reliability rating
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Below-average fuel economy
High base price for the class
Tight rear seats and undersized cargo space
