Porsche’s Tiger may be the only sports SUV that has managed to create a real SUV and a real sports car all in one. 2022 can truly do it all.

Is the 2022 Porsche Macan worth buying?

I can’t tell you how to spend your money, but I can tell you it’s a great SUV.

notes, part of its success is undoubtedly the fact that it’s the cheapest way to buy a new car with Porsche lettering. The other side of the equation is that this is a luxury/sports SUV that owners love.

What’s new for the 2022 Porsche Macan?

Porsche is heading towards an all-electric future with the likes of many of its other European siblings. Despite Porsche’s date with the fate of gasoline cars, the 2022 Porsche Macan has had a small update.

The update eliminated the Macan Turbo from the range. Don’t worry; that doesn’t mean the GTS won’t still blow up your skirt. Its 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 produces 434 horsepower and 405 Nm of torque. This power goes to all four wheels causing this crossover SUV to rip like a rocket and corner like a hare (or tiger).

In Gear Patrol’s review, Courtney compares the explosiveness of the Porsche SUV to, well, for lack of a better phrase, a real Porsche. The Macan rips through corners with a shocking harness that minimizes body roll, all while blasting through the streets with all that power. The Macan’s monstrous handy brakes are said to cut speed in huge chunks when needed.

The only downside is that even after the latest update, the 2022 Porsche Macan’s interior is still the least updated in the company’s lineup. In a world where creature comforts are not just expected but, for many, required, this seems like an oversight on Porsche’s part. Courtney describes some of the internal upgrades as cost-saving measures rather than improvements.

How much does the 2022 Porsche Macan cost?

The 2022 Porsche Macan starts at $81,250 for the base model. The Macan GTS creeps up to nearly $100,000. As you might guess, getting Porsche performance and Toyota practicality doesn’t come cheap.
