Some say this is the best driving 4×4 in the market currently. To be fair this isn’t a wild assertion to come up with. Sharing a platform with Audi Q5, the Porsche Macan has some of the tech and parts that make its sister brand a force to be reckoned with. However, make no doubt about it, the Macan has been revised to meet Porsche’s very high standards and establishes its own very unique identity. Just below the Cayenne in size the Macan offers a more compact package.
What’s in a Name?
Before it came to be known as the Macan, it was known as the Cajun, which was a portmanteau for Cayenne Junior. Later, in Februrary 2012, Porsche changed its name to Macan, which is the Bahasa Indonesia word for “tiger.”
