Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE has a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t worry about a stiff ride, though the SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can be a great bargain considering all of the safety and tech equipment you get for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide range of options, to help you pick and choose which ones are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs may be most of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Porsche Macan. Coming off a redesign just this past year, the 2020 Porsche Macan is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with plenty of standard safety equipment and lots of options to choose from.
As has been the case for a while, you may get the 2020 Porsche Macan with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a stronger V6, or you can get the miserly 2020 Porsche Macan Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Porsche Macan is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Porsche Macan also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Porsche Macan with a bit of extra personality. Inside, the 2020 Porsche Macan provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you choose one of many upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to choose from across the way.
The 2020 Porsche Macan can be as competent as they come. It’s well-priced generally, and modern feature content causes it to be supremely simple to drive. If you’re trying to find something with much more class and space than a small sedan, the 2020 Porsche Macan might you should be the sedan for you.
The 2020 Porsche Macan is the bottom trim. It includes a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Porsche Macan Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and an automobile alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Many of the features found on the upper trim levels can be added to the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options include a sunroof, a JBL speakers coupled with a built-in navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 Porsche Macan stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is easy to fold down to match longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make a lot of people happy. Loading an automobile seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good although not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Porsche Macan includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles make it easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s very easy to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough room so the front seat need not be scooted entirely forward.
