The 2021 Porsche Macan is a mid-sized luxury SUV that delivers a memorable ride. The Macan is just at home tearing around corners on a track as it is doing school errands. This dual-personality is likely to thrill motor car enthusiasts who may enjoy the thrills of a sporty sedan but also need a practical everyday car. With a roomy interior, luxurious cabin, and superb driving dynamics, the 2021 Macan is a sure hit among car lovers throughout the United States. The Bentley Bentayga is Bentley’s first foray into the world of SUVs and the 2021 Bentayga checks all the right boxes when it comes to luxury and refinement. The Bentayga however is a car that is more at home outside an art gallery than on the racing track. Handling is rather unrefined and it certainly does not perform like a sports SUV.
Design & Style
The 2021 Porsche Macan is beautifully designed, making it one of the most stylish SUVs in its category. There is plenty of space on the inside as well and this is one of the things that makes this car very popular. The interior of the Macan is stylish as well and Porsche went to great lengths to make everything on the instrument panel within easy reach of the driver. The rear legroom is plentiful and there is lots of headspace despite the sloping roofline. When it comes to the 2021 Bentayga, Bentley gave it a plush interior with creature comforts. There is plenty of space and the trunk is huge. Exterior styling is based on Bentley’s styling cues and while the design looks great on the Continental and other Bentley sedans, it looks a bit odd on the Bentayga.
Technology & Safety
With the 2021 Porsche Macan, one can expect to get smartphone integration as well as wireless phone charging. The 2021 Macan also features charging ports throughout the vehicle, making it easy for a family to keep their devices charged while on a long trip. The standard audio system is great as well although buyers get the option to upgrade to a more powerful system. When it comes to standard tech on the 2021 Bentayga, there is a lot that is available. Satellite navigation is standard as is a 12-speaker premium audio system. Keep in mind though that the 2021 Bentley Bentayga is priced at over $100,000 more than the Porsche Macan which means that these tech features do not come cheap.
The 2021 Porsche Macan is motivated by a twin-turbo V6 engine that generates a ton of power. This makes the Macan feel like a sports sedan on the highway rather than an SUV. The car is composed around corners and feels very stable on the road. The suspension helps to keep away road imperfections from the cabin and therefore the Macan delivers a superb ride. The 2021 Bentayga is equally impressive with a turbocharged V8 engine that makes the Bentayga very fast. The problem with the Bentayga is mainly around handling. The SUV corners badly and the car feels overworked when you push down the gas pedal.
The Bottom Line
Given that is category is about luxury and performance, the 2021 Bentley Bentayga’s credentials as a luxury SUV are not enough. The Macan can deliver luxury with a sporty performance all in a package that costs about a third of its Bentley rival. This makes the 2021 Porsche Macan a clear winner in this comparison.
