2018 Porsche Macan vs. 2018 Lincoln MKT

The 2018 Lincoln MKT has received lots of positive attention due to its spacious cabin, relaxing seats, and top of the line infotainment. However, it is rivaled by the 2018 Porsche Macan, across overprized for its speed, array of options and opulent finish. Which of the two is supreme?

Design & Style

The Porsche Macan, like its big brother the Porsche Cayenne, opts for smooth rather than angular edges. It has LED lights, an exhaust which is spherical and a centralized touchscreen inside the cabin. As with all cars made by Porsche, every interior surface is covered in premium, costly materials. It provides an amazing experience that makes it perfect for long cross-country trips. The interior of the Lincoln MKT is lined with classic leather and wood. Outside, the snout has been extended, and although it’s not as boxy as the Lincoln Navigator, it is a bit more angular than the Macan. Rather than using standard buttons in the cabin, it opts for capacitive touch instead.

Technology & Safety

While the Lincoln MKT comes with lots of safety features, such as brakes which are antilock, multiple airbags, stability control and a camera in the rearview, it lacks one of the most important, which is a forward collision warning system. This essentially means that the MKT will not stop automatically if a collision is detected. This is a big deal since the technology can be found in most other cars, including its rival the Macan. The Porsche also has blind area monitoring, a camera which is surround view, warnings when departing lanes, and an airbag for each passenger.


Vehicles produced by Porsche are known for their performance, and the Macan is no exception. Both its suspension along with its transmission is highly regarded, but it is the engine that really shines. The turbo 4 is capable of producing 252 horsepower with 273 pound of torque, which enables the vehicle to accelerate from zero to sixty in about six seconds flat. The Lincoln MKT is equipped with a V6 engine that is twin turbo and capable of superb acceleration. It can produce 303 horsepower and is notable for not making much noise when doing so.

The Bottom Line

Although there are a number of similarities between the MKT and Macan, the Lincoln has some unresolved issues. Aside from its occasional ungainly handling and lack of a forward impact system, those who have test driven it have complained of the overly complicated controls, and when it comes to fuel it can be thirsty. Finally, some feel the exterior is flat out ugly in comparison to the Porsche, so the Macan wins.
