2021 Porsche Macan vs. 2021 BMW X5

The 2021 Porsche Macan is one exciting ride because of its masculine engines. It has also the best materials used to make a well-appointed cabin. The ride also carries an intuitive infotainment system.

For the 2021 BMW X5, you get a well-balanced and smooth ride. It features wireless Android Auto as a standard too.

Design & Style

With two rows of seats that can comfortably seat up to five people of all shapes, sizes and ages, the 2021 edition for the Macan has been designed to meet expectations of buyers. It comes standard with leather upholstery and provides hip-hugging support in front to make every trip safer for passengers. The ride is also sleek yet modern, using all the best materials and having those soft-touch surfaces to have that well-designed cabin.

Also seating up to five people, the X5 gives buyers the option to go for the seven-seating capacity models. It comes with standard power adjustments for the front seats, and makes the ride comfortable for its occupants too. With its price point, it is quite disappointing that it only offers synthetic leather upholstery as a standard.

Technology & Safety

Blessed to have that 10.9-inch touchscreen for its infotainment system, the 2021 Macan is a user-friendly ride in terms of technologies. The interface displays crisp graphics and easily responds to user inputs too. It integrates Apple CarPlay and features 10 speakers, four USB ports, and a Bluetooth. It has basically been given driver aids like the rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, and lane departure warning, which can also be upgraded to include advanced driver aids.

The X5, on the other hand, uses an outdated infotainment setup with its 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. Even with a touch screen infotainment, this one is not as reliable as the one found in the Macan. The ride has safety features like the pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and rearview camera, but it lacks the reliability of the driver aids found in the Porsche.


The 2021 Porsche Macan has a lot of engine choices starting with the base turbo-four engine that can give you 248 horsepower. There is also a 348-horsepower producing V6 engine for its other model. For the X5, results range in between 335 horsepower to 389 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Porsche Macan easily defeats the 2021 BMW X5 in all aspects. It is one of the best rides that you should consider buying for your family. You will surely enjoy all the features and power that it provides as you seat comfortably inside it during a trip.
