2016 Lexus RX 450h vs. 2017 Porsche Macan Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus RX 450h as you will with the Porsche Macan, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). Clearly, the Lexus RX 450h is a better financial choice over the Porsche Macan, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus RX 450h carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Macan.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus RX 450h 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 RX 450h, which is slightly longer than the Porsche Macan.

Drivetrain
The Lexus RX 450h has much lower torque than the Porsche Macan, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lexus RX 450h 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 RX 450h is clearly the choice over the Porsche Macan for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus RX 450h has a lot less horsepower than the Porsche Macan.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Lexus RX 450h and the Porsche Macan. The Lexus RX 450h has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Porsche Macan.

Warranty
The Lexus RX 450h comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Macan.
