This is the Porsche Macan! It’s designed to offer the perfect middle ground between a small SUV and a sports car. However, as you’d expect with any Porsche, it doesn’t come cheap! The range kicks off from £48,000, but if you want to go for the 2.9-litre V6 turbo with the ability to put down 440hp, you’ll be looking at a starting price of £69,000!
So, is it worth it? There are already a bunch of small performance SUVs in this market, from the X3M to the Alfa Stelvio QV, and the Porsche is easily at the higher end of the price range - and that’s before you even start considering the options which you’ll definitely want to add! Well to find out, you’ll need to sit back, relax, and join Mat for his latest in-depth review!

With a loaded, arguably better looking, 2021 Mazda CX-30 2.5 Turbo with 250bhp/320ft/lbs going on sale for about $35K, it'll be interesting to see how it stacks up to the entry-level Macan.

Matt would you recommend the Porsche, Audi A5/s5, Range Rover velar/évoque or the BMW 5-Series? The range is my dream car but I heard I’ll end up at the poor house, because of the constant issues they have lmao. This is not just limited to Matt anyone can help me with my question.

I miss a female touch to this channel. Today more than 50% of the women strongly influence the decision on which car to buy. This is especially true for the SUV market. Women want more practical cars, and they love beautiful cars and fast cars. Women do have money, a lot of money, and thus purchase power and decision power. I definitely loved this, when my wife bought me a gorgeous birthday present: a BMW M3 competition.
Mat wouldn't mind if his girlfriend would do the same :)

Watching this video makes me love my Macan gts even more... Because it didn't come turbocharged and it's less expensive. So it gave me the chance to install significantly bigger turbos than the ones in the Macan turbo, I also did a great tune. I basically wasted almost the same amount of money as the macan turbo, a lot more HP(well over 600) and i also payed for it straight Cash, no financing, so my insurance won't own it. This crossover is ideal for when you are single and like to have fun with friends, for many obvious reasons.

The only issue is that the USB ports are all Type-C no legacy USB-A. At least have one as the legacy type port instead of using a 12v USB charger, unless you intend to charge an iPad which you must use 12v.

Pronounce "c" in Macan is "ch" not /k/because the meaning is very different in Indonesian language. Macan is a tiger in Indonesian language. If you pronounce as Makan, it means eating in Indonesian language. So, please pronounce it correctly.

Macan in the Netherlands from 93.600 Euro. Macan Turbo from 138.500 euro.
69.000 GBP x 1.10737 (todays converter rate) = 76.408,53 Euro.
Thanks Brussels and the Netherlands for having import and emission tax almost doubling the price of a car.
