Porsche Macan First Drive - Video


Quote:
The Compact Crossover, Redefined
by Luke Vandezande

Normally when the term “compact crossover” comes across the table you think of products like the Honda CR-V, the Ford Escape or the Toyota RAV4.

Of course you could always go with something a little bit nicer like an Audi Q5 or Mercedes-Benz GLK. In fact it’s hard to think of a company that doesn’t offer something in this segment and starting this year, Porsche is joining those ranks.

But as you can probably guess, its idea of what a small soft-road capable crossover should be is a little bit different than, well, anyone else.
