Macan vs. GLC: Performance

The entry-level models of the Porsche Macan and Mercedes-Benz GLC are both powered by a 2.0L I-4 engine, but the Porsche engine delivers 248 hp, while the Mercedes only offers 241 hp. It might seem like a small difference, but you may think otherwise when you open up the throttle on I-575. The Macan also comes with a 19.8-gallon fuel tank, while the GLC fuel tank can only carry 17.4 gallons.

If you plan on towing a travel trailer or boat out to Allatoona Lake, you’ll appreciate the 4,409-pound towing capacity of the Macan. The GLC can only tow up to 3,500 pounds.

In addition, all 2019 Porsche Macan models come with the superior traction of 4-wheel drive, which is an available option you’ll have to pay more for on the GLC.

Macan vs. GLC: Features

Both of these crossover SUVs are loaded with all of the comfort, convenience, and tech features that Milton drivers expect in a luxury vehicle. Some of these shared features include:

  • Bluetooth® connectivity
  • Voice-activated navigation
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Lane departure warning
  • Parking assist

The base trim Porsche Macan also comes with a standard 10.9-inch touchscreen with HD resolution, as opposed to the 7-inch touchscreen you’ll find in the base model GLC. As for available audio systems, the Macan gives you a choice between a BOSE® Surround Sound System and a Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System. The GLC offers an upgrade to a Burmester® Audio System only.

A new feature that comes standard with the Macan is Traffic Jam Assist. This feature will automatically adjust the steering to keep you in your lane, and at the same time will maintain a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead. Traffic Jam Assist helps relieve the strain of inching along in gridlock on I-285.
