2022 Porsche Macan vs. 2021 Lexus NX

A luxury compact SUV with plenty of engines to choose from, the 2022 Porsche Macan knows how to topple down opponents when pitted against them side-by-side. It no longer carries the Turbo trim, yet there are a lot of things to look forward to in the automobile.

A ride that brings comfort with a roomy cabin, the 2021 Lexus NX promises that passengers will have a smooth ride during a trip. Now, it is blessed with blind spot monitoring as part of its list of standard features.

Design & Style

The 2022 Porsche Macan just wows car buyers out there for its sporty look, and handsome interior styling. The cabin speaks luxury with the top-notch materials used to design it. It sits five comfortably both at the front and back, thus making it ideal for a family of five. A total of 52.9 cubic feet of space opens up in the cargo area when the rear seats are not in use.

The 2021 Lexus NX, on the other hand, has supple front seats and comfortable seating configuration for a group of five. The rear seats are well-bolstered too, but when compared to the Macan, it does not really have that ample room for taller occupants. This is because of the thick roof pillars found in it, which, at the same time, sacrifices outward visibility.

Technology & Safety

Featuring the Porsche Communication Management infotainment system, the 2022 Porsche Macan has a user-friendly interface. Other features included are the 10.9-inch touch screen, 10 speakers, Wi-Fi hot spot, navigation, tri-zone automatic climate control, wireless Apple CarPlay, and satellite radio, among others. Safety equipment basically included in the entry-level trim are front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, and rearview camera.

The NX uses the Remote Touch infotainment system with an eight-inch touch screen. This one is gifted with a touchpad which can be used to access functions for Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and other features like the Bluetooth, Wi-Fi hot spot, and eight speakers. Its safety amenities include blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, rear cross traffic alert, and traffic sign recognition, among others.


The 2022 Porsche Macan rates high in terms of engine performance. It starts off with a turbo-four base model that can release up to 261 horsepower. The twin-turbo V6 in the S variant gives off 375 horsepower, while that of the one found under the hood of the GTS distributes 434 horsepower. The turbo-four engine in the NX is not that impressive since it can only yield up to 235 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

Blessed with a lot of good things in terms of design, the 2022 Porsche Macan walks tall ahead of its rivals in the league of luxury SUVs. The ride also has the amenities that you are looking for, all reliable and easily understandable. Its powerful engines wrap up all the good things that it is better with when compared to that of the 2021 Lexus NX.
