Reinhold Niebuhr was on to something when he prayed for the serenity to accept the things he could not change and the courage to change the things he could. Consider this Porsche Macan S, for example, a vehicle we awarded accolades as the top compact-luxury SUV among our 10Best Trucks and SUVs for 2017 .
Little brother to the Cayenne, and Porsche’s first foray into small SUV world. More than that, Porsche claims the Macan is ‘the first compact SUV that’s also a sports car’. Loosely based on the underpinnings of Audi’s Q5, the core Macan models get a choice of three meaty engines – a 254bhp V6 diesel and two V6 petrols, the 335bhp S and full-fat 394bhp Turbo – along with proper four-wheel drive and all of Porsche’s go-faster toys.
