Auto123 reviews the 2019 Porsche Macan, a genuine sports car lurking within the shell of an admittedly sleek SUV
In just a few short years, the Porsche Macan has become one of the biggest stars of the Stuttgart-based automaker’s lineup. Not only does it sit at the top of the company’s model sales chart, but this little brother to the Cayenne is undeniable one of the most dynamic SUVs on the market today.
Keeping up with the Joneses
As await the transition of the model to an electrified powertrain – something that should happen as of 2022 – the 2019 Porsche Macan gets a few mid-cycle adjustments, which is par for the course these days, particularly for models as popular as this.
As before, the little crossover comes out of the box with a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo engine delivering 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. My tester was just such a base version, and it was a good occasion to determine if the tweaked new Macan is still as fun to drive as before.
