2014 Nissan Armada 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Nissan Armada will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Porsche Macan. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Nissan Armada and the Porsche Macan have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan Armada is much wider than the Porsche Macan, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Nissan Armada, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche Macan.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Nissan Armada transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Porsche Macan.

Handling
The Nissan Armada has a larger turning radius than the Porsche Macan, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Nissan Armada more than the Porsche Macan, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Nissan Armada, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Porsche Macan.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Nissan Armada is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Porsche Macan.
