2017 Porsche Macan vs. 2016 Lexus RX 450h Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Porsche Macan as you will with the Lexus RX 450h, 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). The Porsche Macan will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus RX 450h, 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 Porsche Macan will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Lexus RX 450h.

Dimensions
The Porsche Macan is a little wider than the Lexus RX 450h, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Porsche Macan is slightly shorter than the Lexus RX 450h, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Porsche Macan transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Lexus RX 450h.

Handling
The Porsche Macan has a larger turning radius than the Lexus RX 450h, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Lexus RX 450h is clearly the choice over the Porsche Macan for pulling heavy loads. The Porsche Macan has a little more horsepower than the Lexus RX 450h.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Porsche Macan and the Lexus RX 450h. The Porsche Macan has less cargo space than the Lexus RX 450h, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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