2022 Porsche Macan vs. 2021 Cadillac Escalade

The 2022 Porsche Macan gets a lot of upgrades when compared to its predecessor. While it has dropped the Turbo trim, it has upgraded its base engine to become more powerful. The S and GTS models also get revisions in terms of their engines. It rates high in terms of interior appeal as well.

Looking at the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, it is easy to notice that it has a bigger body. True enough, it can sit up to seven passengers in its three rows of seats. An expansive cargo space awaits your belongings too.

Design & Style

The 2022 Porsche Macan has a basic 17.2 cubic feet of cargo space when both rows of seats are occupied. Fold the back, and this expands to give room for 52.9 cubic feet of cargo. There are also a lot of perfect-fitting materials in the interior, making the luxury crossover defeat its rivals, the 2021 Escalade included. Seats are contoured to make the setup even more comfortable for its five passengers.

The 2021 Escalade is attractive on the outside, because of that modern, futuristic look. It sits seven people comfortably on all rows of seats, regardless of age and size. It uses no less than the best quality materials inside too, but even when it made that effort, the Macan still looks and feels better than that of the Cadillac.

Technology & Safety

The Macan 2022 edition is blessed with a snappy touch screen setup and a user-friendly PCM infotainment system. This has features like a Wi-Fi hot spot, USB ports, Bluetooth, satellite radio, 10 speakers, wireless Apple CarPlay and navigation. A standard feature included is tri-zone automatic climate control. The list of features for safety in this ride includes front and rear parking sensors, rearview camera, and lane departure warning.

One thing that will leave you in awe when you see the infotainment setup on the Escalade’s dashboard is its thrilling combination of three screens, measuring 38 inches all in all. The ride has the safety amenities that may also excite you. Among them are rain-sensing windshield wipers, rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, and automatic high-beam headlights. Impressive as these features are, you may need some time getting used to the setup.


With the updates made on the engines of its base, S, and GTS models, the 2022 Porsche Macan now reaches ratings of 261 horsepower, 375 horsepower, and 434 horsepower respectively. These engines are paired with a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission.

The Escalade, on the other hand, rates at 420 horsepower, but that result is not impressive once you notice some weird things going on the engine as you step on the brakes.

The Bottom Line

For those of you who want to have all the good things that a ride can offer, you must settle for the 2022 Porsche Macan. Your small family will definitely fit in this luxury crossover. Add to that, it is given all the features that you want. The 2021 Cadillac Escalade still needs to launch another model so that you can see if it beats the Macan.
