Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Porsche Macan as you will with the Toyota Land Cruiser, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Porsche Macan will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Land Cruiser. 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 Macan and the Toyota Land Cruiser have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche Macan is much slimmer than the Toyota Land Cruiser, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Porsche Macan, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Handling
The Porsche Macan has the same turning radius as the Toyota Land Cruiser, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Land Cruiser is clearly the choice over the Porsche Macan for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Porsche Macan and the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Porsche Macan doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Porsche Macan seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Land Cruiser. The Porsche Macan has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Porsche Macan than that of the Toyota Land Cruiser.
