2017 Volkswagen Touareg vs. 2018 Porsche Macan Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Volkswagen Touareg, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Porsche Macan.

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 Volkswagen Touareg 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 Volkswagen Touareg carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Macan.

Dimensions
The Volkswagen Touareg is about the same width as the Porsche Macan. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Volkswagen Touareg, which is slightly longer than the Porsche Macan.

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

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Volkswagen Touareg is clearly the choice over the Porsche Macan for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Volkswagen Touareg 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 Volkswagen Touareg and the Porsche Macan. The Volkswagen Touareg has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Porsche Macan.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Volkswagen Touareg is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Porsche Macan.
