CAP HPI's Mark Bulmer said: The Macan is a relative newcomer but has already gathered a following. High performance and GTi looks are the main drivers for this car, allied to the strong market for used Porsches. This car is different, and it ticks both the sports car and SUV boxes at the same time.

We say: Probably the best-handling SUV ever put into mass production, the Macan is pretty much the ultimate all-rounder. If we were going to drive to the Alps for a ski holiday, this is what we'd take. It would monster the motorway, shoot up the switchbacks and batter its way through a blizzard in the resort. And it would do all that while wrapping its occupants in opulence. We approve.
