2018 Porsche Macan vs. 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

Owners of the 2018 Porsche Macan and owners of the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport could go back and forth all day as to which vehicle is better. So close are these vehicles, trading pros and cons, that the choice is pretty much left to individual tastes, needs, and desired options.

Design & Style

The Porsche company has designed their Macan with a seven-speed automatic. Standard on the Range Rover is an eight-speed automatic.

With the second seat folded, the Macan offers 53 ft.³ of cargo capacity. With the third seat removed, the Range Rover Sport offers 27.5 ft.³ of cargo capacity.

Frequently, a vehicle’s design is reflected in how long the dealer is willing to extend a warranty. This speaks in favor of the Porsche Macan. The Range Rover Sport’s six-year warranty is half that of the Porsche Macan. (Six years versus 12 years.)

The Porsche Macan is designed with reliability in mind. So much so, in fact, that compared to the Range Rover Sport it rates 57 points higher in a Consumer Reports rating. Among premium SUVs, JD Power and Associates (in their initial quality study) rated Macan first. In this category, the Range Rover did not rate within the top three. Overall, in fact, for long-term dependability, JD Power and Associates rates Land Rover vehicles less dependable and reliable than Porsche vehicles.

Technology & Safety

To prevent children from opening doors, both the Macan and the Range Rover Sport have child safety locks. Additionally, both vehicles offer standard safety features including the following: rearview cameras, lane departure warning systems, daytime running lights, skid prevention electronic stability systems, traction control all-wheel-drive, four-wheel antilock brakes, front height adjustable shoulder belts, rear and front seat belt pre-tensioners, side impact head airbags, front side impact airbags, and passenger and driver frontal airbags.

Performance

Compared to the Porsche, the Range Rover does have a more powerful engine. As an example, the Macan GTS 3.0 turbo V6 has a horsepower of 360 while the Range Rover Sports HSC dynamic 3.0 supercharged V6 has a horsepower of 380. The acceleration from 0 to 60 mph for the Macan is only .2 seconds slower than the Range Rover, however.

The Bottom Line

Though each of these vehicles have their strengths and weaknesses, many loyal Porsche drivers/owners will not be swayed by the closeness in comparison. The Macan is, after all, a Porsche. And that’s enough for many discerning individuals.

And it may be a little easier to buy a Porsche Macan than a Range Rover Sport because there are far more Porsche dealers than there are dealers for the Land Rover. This also comes into play when you need service.
