Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Porsche Cayenne as you will with the Porsche Macan, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). The Porsche Cayenne will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Porsche Macan, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Porsche Cayenne and the Porsche Macan have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche Cayenne is much wider than the Porsche Macan, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Porsche Cayenne, which is slightly longer than the Porsche Macan.

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

Handling
The Porsche Cayenne 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 Porsche Cayenne is clearly the choice over the Porsche Macan for pulling heavy loads. The Porsche Cayenne 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 Porsche Cayenne and the Porsche Macan. The Porsche Cayenne has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Porsche Macan.

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