2017 Porsche Macan vs. 2017 Buick Enclave 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). The Porsche Macan will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Buick Enclave, which has a much lower 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 Destination Charge for the Porsche Macan is much higher than that for the Buick Enclave.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche Macan is much slimmer than the Buick Enclave, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Porsche Macan, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Buick Enclave.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Porsche Macan does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Buick Enclave.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Buick Enclave is clearly the choice over the Porsche Macan for pulling heavy loads. The Porsche Macan has a little more horsepower than the Buick Enclave.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Porsche Macan seats a lot fewer people than the Buick Enclave. The Porsche Macan has significantly less cargo capacity than the Buick Enclave.

Warranty
The Porsche Macan comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Buick Enclave.
