The 2018 Porsche Macan is fast, comfortable to sit in and offers lots of optional amenities. However, it is rivaled by the 2018 GMC Yukon, an SUV with a powerful engine, excellent towing capacity and chiseled appearance. Which of them should you buy?
Design & Style
The Yukon is full sized and utilizes classical construction with the body on top of the frame. It comes with three trim levels, which are Denali, SLE and SLT. Within the cabin, the GMC Yukon rivals the Cadillac Escalade in terms of luxury. The Porsche Macan has a very sleek exterior which is defined by elegant curves. The interior is ultra-opulent, exactly what you’d expect from Porsche, with polished trim and buttons and controls that are centrally located.
Technology & Safety
The Porsche Macan has lots of airbags, warnings for lane departures, a camera which is surround view and monitoring for blind spots. It is highly regarded when it comes to the protection of drivers and passengers alike. Within the interior, one will be treated to an audio system with ten speakers, touch screens which are 7 inches and support for Bluetooth. The GMC Yukon is equipped with a number of gadgets which are designed to prevent it from getting into collisions. These include stability control, integrated airbags, emergency automatic brakes, high beam lights which are automated, and pedals which can be power adjusted. The interior is rich in luxury comforts such as Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, infotainment eight-inch screens, a camera in the rearview, Bose audio system and climate control which is tri-zone.
Both SUVs offer potent performance to those fortunate enough to drive them. The Yukon is equipped with a V8, 5.3-liter engine that can produce up to 355 horsepower with 383 pounds of torque. It uses an automatic six-speed transmission which transfers power to one or more wheels. The Porsche Macan comes with a V6 engine that can produce up to 340 horsepower with 339 pounds of torque and can go from zero to sixty in about five seconds. This is the standard model; the Macan Turbo can produce up to 400 horsepower.
The Bottom Line
The GMC Yukon and Porsche Macan are both outstanding SUVs, but the only one can emerge the winner. For the standard Yukon, the interior isn’t as spacious as it should be. Furthermore, its lift over is too high when it comes to loading cargo, so for many buyers, a crossover is a more sensible choice. Therefore the Porsche Macan wins.
