2014 Lexus GX 460 vs. 2015 Porsche Macan Review

Comparison Review

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Lexus GX 460 or the Porsche Macan, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Lexus GX 460 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche Macan.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus GX 460 is much slimmer than the Porsche Macan, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus GX 460, which is slightly longer than the Porsche Macan.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Lexus GX 460 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Porsche Macan.

Handling
The Lexus GX 460 has a smaller turning radius than the Porsche Macan, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Lexus GX 460 is clearly the choice over the Porsche Macan for pulling heavy loads. The Lexus GX 460 has a little less horsepower than the Porsche Macan.

Utility
The Lexus GX 460 offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche Macan, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Lexus GX 460 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Porsche Macan.

Warranty
The Lexus GX 460 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Macan.
