Design & Style

A handsome car that has been gifted with 18-inch wheels on its exterior, you will see how rugged yet modern the 2018 Porsche Macan is from the outside. It has been given an outstanding set of features inside that make its style stand out about the rest. The low stance is very much appreciated. Add to that, the ease of getting in and out of the car is unquestionable. It is also roomy enough to accommodate passengers of all ages and sizes.

For the 2018 BMW X5, you cannot help but notice the impression that it creates on the outside as well. Gifted with a tailpipe design and a noticeably bigger set of 21-inch wheels, you will love driving it surely in rugged terrains. However, the space in the cabin is questionable. The presence of a sunroof has cramped up space for the car as well.

Technology & Safety

When you want a car that features the latest technology interface, you will never go wrong when it comes to the 2018 Porsche Macan. It also has its very own iOS and Android compatible app that will allow you to monitor the navigation and security systems found inside it. The audio system is likewise very easy to use for this car model. It also includes advanced driver aids for is trim level.

As for the 2018 BMW X5, you will appreciate the presence of an upgrade stereo system in the technology features that the car offers. Side-mounted air bags are highly appreciated as well. It lacks some of the more advanced features found in the Macan though.


The 2018 Porsche Macan’s base level depends on a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine that can produce up to as much as 273lb-ft of torque and 252 horsepower in the performance arena. In the case of the 2018 BMW X5, you can get an equal 300 horsepower and 300lb-ft of torque in its six-cylinder, 3.0-liter engine. Despite that boost, the X5’s gas pedal fails to respond during low-speed driving interfaces.

The Bottom Line

Now that you have seen the many attributes to love in the 2018 Porsche Macan, we bet that you want to buy one. It deserves your investment, more than anything else.
