2018 Porsche Macan vs. 2018 GMC Terrain

Have you ever had your eyes set on the 2018 Porsche Macan when all of a sudden you have shifted attention to the 2018 GMC Terrain? Well, it is understandable to have at least two choices when you are making a list of the cars that you want to own next. In order to help you get an idea of which is better between the Macan and the Terrain, it pays to read this comparison.

Design & Style

The aesthetic appeal of the 2018 Porsche Macan is one that will make you want to buy this car even more. Imagine the tough exteriors and see how the modern elements found outside it gives it more of the confidence you want from the car of your dreams. Wheels have been properly trimmed and grilles have been designed to function and add appeal to it. The spacious cabin is also one to be impressed about, together with luxurious materials used in the interior construction.

When it comes to the 2018 GMC Terrain, you will also praise it for the rugged exterior that it has been blessed with. Comfort is also evident in its interior. The provision of a panoramic sunroof inside it makes space look cramped up though. This has sacrificed headroom too. Add to that, you will find the cargo space too small for this car.

Technology & Safety

Promising to provide you with all levels of confidence that you are looking for in a car, the maker of the 2018 Porsche Macan extends its prowess to its set of technology and safety features. The remarkable infotainment system works to support device and voice integration. It also offers a line of safety features like automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, and blind spot monitoring that will impress you.

Gifted with USB ports for charging devices, the 2018 GMC Terrain’s other technology features have been updated. While this is the case, you cannot help but notice that it lacks the level of confidence that the Macan exudes in terms of well-performing features. Think of how intrusive lane keeping assist and forward collision warning systems are and you will no longer want to buy this car.


The powerful 2018 Porsche Macan relies on the 340 horsepower and 339lb-ft of torque given off by its V6, 3.0-liter engine. These results are more powerful than what the 2018 GMC Terrain produces. The latter, with its four-cylinder, 1.5-liter engine can only yield up to as much as 203lb-ft of torque and 170 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

This comparison points out to the 2018 Porsche Macan as a far better car choice than that of the 2018 GMC Terrain. You will get your money’s worth when you decide to invest in it.
