2022 Porsche Macan vs. 2022 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC is one of the most beautiful SUVs we’ve ever seen. Buyers have two engine options, both of which provide superb driving dynamics with an interior that is regally outfitted. But how does it compare to the 2022 Porsche Macan, a dazzling SUV with a powerful V6 engine, exceptional build quality, and a magnificent riding experience?

Design & Style

The Porsche Macan is a sporty SUV that is designed to turn heads, and it does. It’s near futuristic appearance, sinewy exterior and curvature slightly resembles its sibling the 911. Its side blades are distinct and it can be purchased in a variety of body colors. Within the cabin, passengers will be presented with a dashboard rich in screens and buttons. The seats are soothing to the touch and will remain comfortable even when driving across country.

The Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC now comes with rear and front parking sensors, as well as the Cirrus Silver body color. It sits on twenty inch wheels with 5 spokes and has automated projector beam style LEDs in front, with roof rack type rails and windshield wipers that are capable of detecting rain automatically. Its exterior is smooth and sleek.

Technology & Safety

The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) adores the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC, giving it the prestigious Top Safety Pick award. Its safety measures include cruise control that is adaptive, standardized emergency automated brakes, assistance with lane keeping and notifications when departing them. Luxuries within its cabin include 10.3 inch displays, Bluetooth streaming, the choice of Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, Sirius satellite radio and ventilated seats.

The Porsche Macan is equipped with virtually every safety feature found in the Mercedes-Benz. This includes impact avoidance tech, emergency automated brakes, multiple airbags, and cruise control which is adaptive. Amenities within its cabin include climate control that covers multiple zones, powered and ventilated seats, leather or faux suede upholstery and air suspension.


Those that purchase the Porsche Macan Turbo will get a turbocharged engine that is capable of generating 434 horsepower which enables it to accelerate from zero to sixty in only 4.3 seconds. Those that purchase the Mercedes-Benz GLC43 will get an engine that can generate 362 horsepower that can also accelerate from zero to sixty in 4.3 seconds.

The Bottom Line

Though the Porsche Macan and Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC are tied when it comes to acceleration time, the Porsche has greater horsepower, and this combined with the Mercedes-Benz’s inadequate cargo space, tire roaring while cruising, and stiff handling on rough pavement makes the Porsche Macan the winner.
