The 2019 Porsche Macan is whatever everyone would desire from a modern-day car. While many would think that it is just an Audi Q5 with a more powerful engine, it is, however, more than that.
The Macan brings along new features while at the same time maintaining a few functions of most Porsche designs. In order to stay more impressive than Audi, the manufacturer has reworked the entire running gear. The aim is to remain the fastest of its class.
