SUVs For Enthusiasts

So, you have decided you want to buy a Porsche SUV but can’t quite decide between models. Loaded with standard features – like the Porsche Communication Management System and Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive – both models make off-roading a true experience. The Cayenne, Porsche’s midsize SUV, has attracted fans since its debut circa 2002 and the newest family member, the Porsche Macan, has been recognized as a leader among luxury crossover SUVs. Take a look at the side by side comparison below.
