Macan vs. Q5: Fuel Efficiency, Engine Power

The base trims of both the 2019 Porsche Macan and the Audi Q5 are equipped with 2.0L I-4 engines that deliver 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. On top of that, the engines come with seven-speed automatic transmissions and all-wheel drive.

There are some performance differences, though. The Porsche Macan has a towing capacity of 4,409 pounds, while the Q5 has a slightly lower towing capacity of 4,400 pounds. The Porsche also benefits a little when it comes to top speeds: the Macan tops out at 141 mph, the Audi at 130 mph. But those aren’t the only differences, Orono drivers will also want to take these stats into consideration:

  • Fuel tank capacity 
    • Porsche Macan – 19.8 gallons 
    • Audi Q5 – 18.5 gallons
  • Maximum ground clearance 
    • Porsche Macan – 9.0 inches (with air suspension)
    • Audi Q5 – 8.2 inches

Of course, if you’re looking for even more power from a luxury SUV and aren’t completely sold on the size of a compact, you’ll want to compare the 2019 Porsche Macan vs. the 2019 Porsche Cayenne, a midsize SUV.

Macan vs. Q5: Tech and Comfort

Luxury is a standard on both of these compact SUVs, with the Porsche Macan and Audi Q5 equipped with a slew of comfort and tech features:

  • Seating for up to five
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Voice-activated navigation
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • 10-speaker audio system
  • Parking assist
  • Lane departure warning
  • Optional cabin ionizer

The 2019 Macan has the upperhand when it comes to its screen, which is a 10.9-inch touchscreen with HD-quality resolution. The Q5 has a touch screen that measures only 7 inches. Traffic Jam Assist is another technological marvel that graces the Macan and not the Q5. Traffic Jam Assist helps Bloomington drivers through gentle steering inputs, which helps you stay in your lane and maintain a safe distance behind the vehicle in front of you, and also tracks roadway signs and other vehicles. This feature ensures the Porsche Macan is the preferable vehicle in Minneapolis-area traffic jams.
