2021 Porsche Macan vs. 2021 Volvo XC60

The 2021 Porsche Macan knows how to provide riders with the kind of excitement they need through its muscular engine options. It knows how to define luxury as well with its upscale cabin materials. It knows how to entertain with its intuitive infotainment system.

The 2021 Volvo XC60, on the other hand, is ready to bring style to the forefront too. It is more than willing to prove that it is a comfortable ride. Expect more standard driver assistance features in this vehicle as well.

Design & Style

Made up of two rows of comfortable seats, the 2021 Porsche Macan is ready to accommodate five passengers of all sizes, ages, and shapes. Its well-cushioned seats provide hip-hugging support that make exhilarating rides more thrilling yet safe. It has power-adjustable front seats and leather upholstery as a standard. Sleek to look at on the inside, expect high-end materials highlighting other surfaces in its well-designed cabin.

The 2021 XC60 also seats five passengers in its spacious configuration. Adult passengers will find plenty of room even at the back. It also boasts of a handsome and stylish interior, using top-notch materials to match those found in its rivals. While that is the case, the Macan is still a better option when it comes to the design and style aspect.

Technology & Safety

Safety wise, it has been fitted with lane departure warning, front and rear parking sensors, and rearview camera.

The 2021 XC60 is outfitted with a Sensus infotainment system. This one has a nine-inch touch screen, which is not as intuitive as the one found in the Macan. In fact, since the screen controls almost all functions for the infotainment interface, it is quite difficult getting familiar with how to manipulate settings. It has 10 speakers, HD radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Safety features include blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, and lane departure warning, among others.
