Meanwhile, the Macan manages only 25 mpg city and 22 mpg highway when powered by a 2.0L inline-4, according to EPA estimates. Despite the better efficiency, the powertrain on the Acura model churns out 279 hp, whereas the Porsche’s engine manages only 252 hp.

- Power moonroof
- Speed-sensing interval wipers
- Front-adjustable manual lumbar support
