2022 Porsche Macan vs. 2021 BMW X3

The 2022 Porsche Macan is as impressive as the previous models from the same brand. This is sporty enough to get you through the toughest terrains while user-friendly enough to entertain you along the way. The modern ride gives off a powerful base engine too.

For the 2021 BMW X3, it promises to have muscular engine options that make it stand out as a great contender in the league of luxury cars. You will see an impressive cabin and cargo space as well.

Design & Style

The 2022 Porsche Macan has plenty of room to offer, both for its passengers and cargo. This measures 52.9 cubic feet in the trunk, thus giving plenty of room for more than just your weekend bags.  In terms of interior quality, it has the good looks that it shares with its brothers from the same brand. The luxury crossover is fitted with top-notch materials, all throughout. Sitting five, this is perfect for a small family.

The BMW X3 looks notably posh in all angles. This two-row SUV also has five seats, just like the Macan. The front seats can accommodate taller occupants with sufficient headroom and legroom. The backseats are best left to children, though, in order to complete the five-seating capacity. Synthetic leather upholstery is standard in this ride.

Technology & Safety

There are plenty of standard technologies in the 2022 edition of the Porsche Macan. It has a tri-zone automatic climate control, Wi-Fi hot spot, Bluetooth, USB ports, navigation, satellite radio, 10 speakers, and wireless Apple CarPlay. It is also equipped with a user-friendly 10.9-inch touch screen that readily responds to user inputs. The dash has been equipped with no-nonsense buttons. For your safety, you can count on the rearview camera, lane departure warning, and the front and rear parking sensors.

The 2021 version of the X3 is gifted with a 10.2-inch touch screen. This displays vivid graphics and responds to user commands quickly. It has numerous tricky buttons though which can make driving and using the interface quite distracting at the same time. It supports Apple CarPlay, the navigation system, 12-speaker audio, satellite radio, HD radio, and Bluetooth interface. Safety specs are the same as those in the Macan.


The 2022 Porsche Macan starts off with a turbo-four base engine that now results in 261 horsepower. Its other models carry twin-turbo V6 engines that aspirate 375 and 434 horsepower.

In the case of the 2021 BMW X3, engine options include the base turbo-four which only releases up to 248 horsepower. Coming next is the plug-in hybrid with a result of 288 horsepower, and a twin-turbo V6 setup that aspirates 473 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2022 Porsche Macan has the luxuries that you are looking for in an SUV. It is a family ride with the qualities that make it worthy of a spot in your garage. The BMW X3 2021 edition has great aspects to present, but is still lagging behind that of the Macan, all-in-all.
