The Driver’s Crossover: 2017 Porsche Macan, in Depth!

2017-Porsche-Macan-01-placement

If you haven’t driven one, you could be forgiven for thinking that the Porsche Macan is not to be taken seriously. It looks like the result of a 911 and a Cayenne that were fused together in a teleportation accident, it’s frequently spotted emerging from underground parking structures in Tribeca, and, you know, it’s a four-door hatchback Porsche. But a few minutes behind the wheel of a Macan will reveal a compact crossover that holds true to almost everything we love about Stuttgart’s best exports. The Macan is quick, agile, and rewarding to drive. It feels athletic when pushed hard, but it’s also comfortable around town. The steering, brakes, powertrain, and chassis all respond to inputs from the driver in near perfect harmony. Sure, it’s not as immersive a driving experience as in Porsche’s classic sports cars. But it’s surprisingly close. And, yes, it puts the “compact” in compact crossover—don’t think you’re going to fit two kids and a dog in the back seat—but the Macan is still more than we ever dared to hope for from Porsche’s foray into suburban environs. It’s great enough, in fact, that we have previously presented it with one of our 10Best Trucks and SUVs awards. READ MORE ››

2018-Honda-Odyssey-PLACEMENT

Think minivans are fading away thanks to a proliferation of crossovers? Think again. More than a half-million of these versatile family haulers roll off dealer lots each year.

The cabin is roomy, quiet, and comfortable for the whole family, even those relegated to the third row. A plethora of inventive options such as an onboard vacuum, a video baby monitor, and an in-cabin PA system accompany the expected infotainment and rear-seat-entertainment features. Honda is now offering its suite of active safety technologies—including automated emergency braking and adaptive cruise control—as standard equipment on all but the base LX trim level. It all adds up to a compelling alternative to the ubiquitous crossover for moving family, friends, and cargo. READ MORE ››
