The Macan is poised for big things

new luxury SUV could be the motor to take the crown from the Rover Evoque

HAVE you visited a car factory? I thought I have, many times. are universally keen to show off to the the millions – billions even – invest in new car plants.

I’m in Leipzig. has made a massive investment in the East Germany where it the Cayenne and Panamera, and now the Macan. has four doors, so they’re not archetypal Porsche sports but these days that’s the money is.

As you might expect, the factory is clean. Less expected is the rate of the employees. Everyone relaxed. There are hardly any at all, in fact. Porsche is to talk about the build or lack thereof, which it allows for time to get things and uphold high standards.

This Porsche can do off-roading as long as you pick the most suspension package, which it up to clear obstacles.

If you’re a trip to your local you’ll be unlikely to see much from £50,000, and in all likelihood it be a fair bit more. In line this, the interior is a real – an acknowledgment that this is an machine.

There is schoolboy pleasure to be from controlling every of your drive from Star Trek-esque console.

seats are always comfortable and you can them with even leather and “super-comfort” options. seat space is reasonable for a of adults, and the luggage volume is OK but not
