2021 Porsche Macan S vs 2021 Porsche Cayenne S

Serving Milwaukee, WI

For almost two decades, the Cayenne has been a preferred crossover SUV model among Milwaukee’s elite drivers. At the time of its debut, it was the only four-door vehicle offered by Porsche. More recently, the Macan joined Porsche’s crossover SUV line. This compact luxury crossover took a place directly below the Cayenne in the lineup. A comparison of the Porsche Macan S and the Porsche Cayenne S is to complete a thorough comparison of these top options.


Both of these prestigious crossovers have thrilling capabilities for you to enjoy. Specifically, the 2021 Porsche Macan S pulls 348 horsepower from its turbocharged V6 engine. It boosts you up to 60 miles per hour in only 5.1 seconds. The 2021 Porsche Cayenne S, on the other hand, has a 434-horsepower, twin-turbo V6 engine. It accelerates to 60 miles per hour in 4.9 seconds. You can experience these and other performance-based differences between the Macan S and the Cayenne S through a test drive appointment with our sales reps at Porsche Milwaukee North.


The Macan S and the Cayenne S have comparable body shapes with a dramatic swoop over the hood and a sharp yet rounded nose. However, they have bold differences that make them easy to distinguish on the road. For example, the Macan is shorter than the Cayenne in terms of length and width. At the rear, the windshield and liftgate have a stronger angle. The Macan S also has thick molding running through the side doors and sharply angled LED headlights. The Cayenne has well-defined haunches, more triangular LED headlights, and a more vertical stance at the rear.


These two crossovers share many features, such as ventilated and heated seats, Apple CarPlay, and Porsche Communication Management. They also have individual traits that could influence your model selection. For example, the Cayenne S has a color display screen, a Burmester or Bose audio system, a Navigation Plus system, and other features as the more extensive and more expensive of the two models.
