2021 Porsche Macan vs. 2021 Infiniti QX50

The 2021 Porsche Macan is one ride that can make you enthralled and safe at the same time. This is thanks to its powerful engine options and its reliable technologies. The ride also promises excellent handling to users.

For the 2021 Infiniti QX50, you will discover that there is a long list of features to consider. It also has a wide cargo and passenger area. Now standard to the luxury SUV is Wi-Fi hot spot, adaptive cruise control, and heated front seats.

Design & Style

The 2021 Porsche Macan knows how to combine all the great features when it comes to design and style. Passersby will gasp for breath as they stare at its solidly constructed body. Once passengers get inside it, they will enjoy the comfort that two rows of seats can offer. It has upscale materials matched with soft-touch surfaces, which were combined brilliantly to impress and keep everyone cozy during a trip.

It is a mix bag for the QX50 when it comes to design. The cargo area expands to 65.1 cubic feet making it above-average in terms of cargo space. Add to that, there is also a power liftgate for that area. This crossover may be comfortable and spacious, but it lacks the class that the Macan exudes.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Porsche Macan uses a reliable infotainment system with a 10.9-inch touch screen. This one has a great response to user commands, plus it displays crisp graphics too. The ride has 10 speakers, Bluetooth, navigation, Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, and other technologies worth trying. It also comes with lane departure warning, front and rear parking sensors, and a rearview camera made for safety purposes.

For the 2021 QX50, you will find two screens on the center stack. Aside from the fact that distracts the driver, it also is overwhelming and needs some learning curve. Features like CD player, six speakers, Bluetooth, and smartphone integration are part of the standard, but with dated graphics on screen, the entire update is not as pleasant as buyers expect. Safety wise, it is equipped with forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and a whole lot more. It misses on front parking sensors to complement its rear parking sensors, though.


The base 2021 Porsche Macan has a turbo-four that spruces out 248 horsepower. There is another model with a twin-turbo that generates up to 348 horsepower. The last two engine options are those that give it power for 375 and 434 horses. In the QX50, its only engine options is one that releases 268 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Porsche Macan simply has the charm that outlasts that of the handsomeness of the QX50. It is better in terms of technologies and engine performance as well when compared to its Infiniti counterpart.
