New Porsche Macan SUV first look review

    We get a ride in Porsche’s new, smaller SUV to see if it has the goods to become its new best-seller.

    Also very impressive are the interiors – a clear step up even from those of the Audi. The long central console with its array of buttons gives you a cockpit-like feel, the low steering wheel and dashboard height make it feel particularly sporty, and the big front seats also hold you really well. Build quality is also right up there with Mercedes; the door-shut is just fantastic. The rear seat is also supportive and comfortable, but legroom and headroom back here are tight, and this may not go down so well in the Indian market.

    The Macan will clearly be the sportiest SUV in its segment. Fast, plenty of fun and reasonably practical, it should be in the Indian market by mid-2014. Prices could start at around Rs 70 lakh for the Macan diesel and go as high up as Rs 90 lakh for the fully-loaded Macan Turbo. It may not win at the size-for-price game, but if you are looking for a sporty and fun-to-drive SUV, this should be it.
