Comparison Review

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the BMW X6, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW X6 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 X6 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Macan.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X6 is much wider than the Porsche Macan, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW X6, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche Macan.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X6 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Porsche Macan.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the BMW X6 is clearly the choice over the Porsche Macan for pulling heavy loads. The BMW X6 has a little 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 BMW X6 and the Porsche Macan.

Warranty
The BMW X6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Macan.
