Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Porsche Macan, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW X3 M, 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 BMW X3 M 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 BMW X3 M carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Macan.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X3 M is much slimmer than the Porsche Macan, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the BMW X3 M takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Porsche Macan.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X3 M transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Porsche Macan.

Handling
The BMW X3 M has a larger turning radius than the Porsche Macan, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X3 M has a little more 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 BMW X3 M and the Porsche Macan. The BMW X3 M has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Porsche Macan.

Warranty
The BMW X3 M comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Macan.
