In the market for a performance SUV? The 2018 Porsche Macan and the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio are both well-rated options, but the Macan offers more in the following areas:

  • Available high performance V6 engine
  • Rugged off-road systems
  • A more luxurious driving experience

High Performance Brands Go Head-to-Head

One difference that sets the Macan apart from the Stelvio is its range of available engines. While the Stelvio can just be equipped with a 4-cylinder engine, the Macan is available in a wide range of performance configurations. See how the Macan’s most powerful engine compares to the Stelvio’s lone offering:

  • 2018 Porsche Macan Turbo with Performance Package
    • Engine: 3.0L Turbocharged V6
    • Horsepower: 440 hp
    • Torque: 442 lb-ft
    • Top Speed: 169 mph
  • 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio
    • Engine: 2.0L Turbocharged 4-Cylinder
    • Horsepower: 280 hp
    • Torque: 306 lb-ft
    • Top Speed: 144 mph

That kind of power allows the Macan to accelerate up steep grades as well as set fast times out on the track, and if you want more performance to go along with your luxury features, it’s the safer bet.

Step Inside Your Next Luxury SUV

Of course, there’s more to an SUV than just how much power the engine puts out. The following available performance features can be found in the Macan:

  • Sport Exhaust
  • Adaptive Air Suspension
  • Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus
  • Ceramic Composite Brakes

If you want to add those systems to the Stelvio, you’re out of luck. On top of that, the Macan’s luxurious features set it apart from the Stelvio:

  • Noise Reducing Privacy Glass
  • Rear-Seat Entertainment System
  • 16-Speaker Burmester Surround Sound System

Those features provide a more comfortable travelling experience for both you and your passengers. To try them out for yourself, visit Porsche Barrington.
