Compared to the 2018 BMW X4 and 2018 Audi Q5, the Porsche Macan Base not only offers a stronger or equal turbo engine, it’s also more capable in the towing department. Plus, its appeal goes well beyond performance; the exterior and interior of the Macan include only the latest in niceties and safety features. You’ll find features like tri-zone climate control, parking sensors, and Lane Departure Warning—which aren’t all standard on the BMW X4 and Audi Q5!
