Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Porsche Macan comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 7-speed automated manual.More powerful turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine for S models.New interior design incorporating a 10.9-inch touchscreen.Redesigned front and rear fascias, including headlights and taillights.More natural voice recognition software.

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-seat legroom and cargo capacity than many competitors
Options and packages can add up quickly

The Macan is updated for 2019 and features refreshed exterior styling that includes updated front and rear bumpers, new taillamps that span the width of the liftgate, and new wheel designs. The base 2019 Porsche Macan receives a 248-hp turbocharged four-cylinder and the high-performance S model comes with a 348-hp turbo V-6; the GTS and Turbo models have yet to be revealed for 2019, but will almost certainly pack more punch than the S when they eventually return. The suspension is retuned this year as well, although the Macan already was the one of the best handling crossovers of 2018. The Macan also sees a few interior changes, the most notable one being the new, larger 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system and standard 4G LTE onboard Wi-Fi feature.

Pros
As quick as some Boxsters,
curvy exterior,
exceptional poise on the road.

Cons
Low-rent interior,
cramped rear seat,
small cargo hold.

The first big revamp of Porsche's Macan range has arrived. Is it 'almost new-generation' as its maker claims or closer to the facelift it appears to be? Let's find out in the newish V6-powered S version.

Pros
Smarter Cayenne-like look
Excellent high-def’ infotainment
Superb all-round drivability
Excellent driver-centric dynamics

Cons
The new single-turbo V6 is uninspiring in character
Old Porsche cabin design
Average three-year warranty: AEB costs extra

The Audi SQ5 is redesigned for 2018. Highlights include a new body structure, updated styling, a more powerful V6 engine, and new tech and driver-assistance features.The 2018 Audi SQ5 comes in either Premium Plus or Prestige trims. This means every SQ5 comes very well-equipped. But there are still plenty of upgrades to be had in terms of luxury, technology and performance.

PROS
All-new chassis should improve ride and handling
Increased torque for even livelier performance
Major upgrades to driving and infotainment technology
Luxurious but restrained interior design

CONS
Reduced cargo space behind rear seats

By: 
edmunds.com

The SQ5 strikes a careful balance between sporty and comfortable, making a strong showing in a tough class.The SQ5 enters a new generation this year, with top-to-bottom changes that include an all-new 354-hp turbocharged V-6 engine in place of last year’s supercharged V-6, an all-new chassis, standard adaptive dampers, and available air springs. Updated interior packaging means there’s a little more space for both passengers and cargo than in previous SQ5s, and exterior design tweaks including a revised front grille and a character line running the length of the car serve as differentiators between new and not-so-new models.

Pros
Comfortable ride,
surprisingly fuel efficient,
abundance of standard interior features.

Cons
Disappointing real-world cargo capacity,
ho-hum exterior design,
top competitors have better dynamics.
