2018 Porsche Macan vs. 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe

The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe is a big, powerful SUV with a potent V8 engine, extensive selection of trim and options, and a very relaxing interior. It competes against the 2018 Porsche Macan, an SUV prized for its speed, many optional amenities, and GTS level performance. Which of the two should be on your driveway?

Design & Style

The Porsche Macan is a good looking SUV both in the cabin and exterior. Its outer curves are as smooth as a champagne bottle, with LED lights, quad styled tailpipes, and an exhaust which is spherical. Within, a bunch of buttons can be seen on the touch screen which has been positioned in the center, which has that classical analog feel. The Chevrolet Tahoe has a tough, rugged appearance that is quintessentially American, a throwback to traditional SUVs. The dashboard within is organized well, with a grille that is rich in chrome with headlights that are semi split to provide the vehicle with an appearance that is more expressive. The interior controls are positioned for ease of use, and a number of different shades are available for the cabin surface and upholstery.

Technology & Safety

The Chevrolet Tahoe offers cutting-edge safety systems. It weighs well over 5,000 pounds, which means that most vehicles that crash into it will be in trouble, not the other way around. Aside from its robust construction, it also comes with 7 airbags, brakes which anti-lock, stability control, and systems designed to prevent collisions in the first place. One of the airbags is centralized and designed to prevent passengers from slamming into each other during an accident. Interior luxuries include support for Bluetooth, Android Auto, eight-inch touchscreens, multiple USB ports and an antenna which supports 4G. The Porsche Macan also takes safety seriously, offering multiple airbags; warnings for lane departures, blind area monitoring, and a camera which is surround view, and interior comforts such as Alcantara upholstery, multi-zone climate control, touchscreens which are 7 inches, an audio system with ten speakers, and Bluetooth support.


Porsche is famous for the performance of its vehicles, and the Macan doesn’t disappoint. Standard models come with a V6 engine that produces 340 horsepower with 339 pounds of torque that can go from zero to sixty in about five seconds. The Chevrolet Tahoe is equipped with a V8, 5.3-liter engine that can produce 355 horsepower with 383 pounds of torque.

The Bottom Line

The Chevy Tahoe and Porsche Macan are outstanding SUVs with few weaknesses. The downside to buying the Chevy however is that it lacks both a hybrid or diesel option, and some feel its size can actually become a liability when trying to find a parking space, so the Porsche Macan wins.
