Macan vs. 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque
Unbridled athleticism, engaging performance, and the legendary crest-shaped hood emblem immediately come to mind when discussing any Porsche model. And although the 2015 Porsche Macan is a completely new model, it is 100 percent Porsche. Building off the success of the midsize Porsche Cayenne, the 2015 Porsche Macan near Chicago IL will be the automaker’s first compact crossover. As the all-new Macan arrives at Loeber Motors in late May 2014, there will be plenty of buzz, but also some healthy competition.
One of its chief competitors will be the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, which has been available since the 2012 model year. As we compare the 2015 Porsche Macan vs. Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, we’ll provide key specs and offer useful information we feel separates the two, but keep in mind that the best way to experience the all-new Porsche Macan is behind the wheel at Loeber Motors.
Why Wait Any Longer?
As we compare the 2015 Porsche Macan vs. 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, what’s under the hood is among the chief concerns for buyers. Comparing the base powertrains, the 2015 Porsche Macan packs a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 rated for 340 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque. Paired to a seven speed automatic transmission that sends power to all wheels, the 2015 Porsche Macan also includes automatic engine stop-start. A 400 horsepower turbocharged V-6 engine also is available.
Conversely, the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque comes equipped with a 240-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Falling short in the power category, the Range Rover Evoque’s smaller engine will likely mean higher fuel economy, but less towing and hauling capabilities. All-wheel drive also is standard in the Range Rover Evoque, and power is transmitted to its wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission.
With more cargo space, standard features and unrivaled performance, the 2015 Porsche Macan is a must-see in the luxury compact crossover segment. While comparing the 2015 Porsche Macan vs. Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is useful on paper, doing so behind the wheel is the best way to tell which model best meets the demands of your life.
