The 2019 Porsche MacanCompared To The 2019 BMW X3

When SUV drivers around Parsippany, Millburn, and Morristown are searching for a new luxury compact SUV they know what they want: power, lavish amenities, style, and intelligent features. Both the Porsche Macan and the BMW X3 offer these requirements, but in different ways.

What's Different Between The Porsche Macan And The BMW X3?

While both of these gorgeous SUVs are considered a compact SUV, the Porsche Macan screams luxury with its stunning exterior design, featuring bold lines and an aerodynamic sports car over-all look, and standard interior comforts. The BMW X3, while lavish, doesn't have quite the impact that many of our Bridgewater NJ, Wayne NJ, and beyond drivers are searching for. You'll also find many of the interior amenities, such as leather upholstery, must be added to the BMW model while it's included in the Porsche Macan.

Here are a few more differences that make the Porsche Macan stand out.

  • Both SUVs contain infotainment systems that are modernized and innovative. The Porsche Macan shows off with a brand-new 10.9-inch touchscreen display that contains full HD resolution and a personalized start screen. This impressive device is slightly larger than the BMW X3 version and comes with standard online navigation, Connect Plus, and the Porsche Connect app.
  • With two available engines in each brand's SUV, drivers will have the choice of choosing between powerful and impressively powerful. The M Performance SAV® engine in the BMW X3 does contain more oomph than the Porsche Macan, but also has a much more expensive price. That being said, the Porsche Macan features more power in the base trims, a higher top speed with both engine options, and standard all-wheel drive in every trim level.
  • When it comes to safety, both the Porsche Macan and the BMW X3 have plenty of safety features to go around. From similar front collision warning programs to lane keep assist systems, drivers will find safety tech in both models. The Porsche Macan does offer unique programs though, such as the Night Vision Assist that will help detect items in your path, specifically animals like deer, when you're driving at night. The BMW X3 doesn't offer this program.
