Comparison Review

Convenience
The Chevrolet Suburban requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Porsche Macan, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Chevrolet Suburban 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 Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Suburban is much higher than that for the Porsche Macan.

Dimensions
If you go with the Chevrolet Suburban, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche Macan.

Handling
The Chevrolet Suburban has a significantly larger turning radius than the Porsche Macan, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Suburban is clearly the choice over the Porsche Macan for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Suburban has a little less horsepower than the Porsche Macan.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Suburban and the Porsche Macan are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Chevrolet Suburban more than the Porsche Macan, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Chevrolet Suburban, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Porsche Macan.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Suburban is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Porsche Macan.
