2015 Porsche Macan vs. 2014 Volkswagen Touareg 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 Porsche Macan will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Touareg. 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 Volkswagen Touareg.

Dimensions
The Porsche Macan is about the same width as the Volkswagen Touareg. The Porsche Macan is slightly shorter than the Volkswagen Touareg, 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 Volkswagen Touareg.

Handling
The Porsche Macan has the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Touareg, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Porsche Macan and the Volkswagen Touareg. The Porsche Macan has significantly less cargo capacity than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Porsche Macan than that of the Volkswagen Touareg.
