2018 Porsche Macan vs. 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Investing in a luxury car requires careful thinking. You must be able to identify which sets apart one from the other. Is it the price or the beautiful exterior? Is it the offered comfort or the added stability? Is it engine performance or fuel efficiency? These are but just a few questions to ask before saying yes to purchasing either a 2018 Porsche Macan or 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee. We have a detailed comparison to help you decide.

Design & Style

The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee embraces the modernity of its rivals and it is evident with how it has designed its rugged exteriors. Adding to its meaning to the word luxury, you will love it even more for its plush interiors. However, while the interior impresses, it has to be noted that space has been limited in the cabin and cargo making it fall behind its rivals like the Macan.

A perfect blend of elegant and sporty, the 2018 Porsche Macan will never make you feel like you have wasted money when it comes to design and style aspects. This car is luxurious and rugged to look at and has 18-inch wheels that complement its body. The addition of automatic LED headlights in front makes it a really worthy investment. When you get inside this luxury car, you will see why more clients love it. The spacious cabin is graciously complemented by the use of excellent quality materials.

Technology & Safety

The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee seems to promise to make up for what it lacks in the design aspect with the integration of feature-rich technologies in its system. It has a user-friendly interface via the Uconnect system but issues have been noted with how these controls operate. They are overly-sensitive to the touch.

In the case of the 2018 Porsche Macan, you will find it even more thrilling that the user-friendly touchscreen interface has been gifted with an addition of Communication Management to make the system respond quickly to your command. Advanced safety features like adaptive e cruise control and lane departure warning are indeed impressive as well.


Running on a more powerful V6, 3.6-liter engine, the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee is expected to produce more power than the Macan but again it fails on this aspect because it produces a meager output of 260ln-ft of torque and 295 horsepower. The 3.0-liter, V7 engine of the 2018 Porsche Macan yields a total power of 339lb-ft of torque and 340 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

There may be some things that will impress you when it comes to the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee but it lacks the same promise that the Macan offers. Go for the Porsche instead when wanting to buy a luxury car.
