Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Porsche Macan, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi e-tron, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Audi e-tron 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. The Audi e-tron carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Macan.

Dimensions
The Audi e-tron 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 Audi e-tron, which is slightly longer than the Porsche Macan.

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

Performance
With the Porsche Macan, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Audi e-tron. The Audi e-tron has a little less horsepower than the Porsche Macan.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Audi e-tron transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Porsche Macan.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi e-tron and the Porsche Macan. The Audi e-tron has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Porsche Macan.

Warranty
The Audi e-tron comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Macan.
