Design & Style

The inside of the Porsche Macan is top-notch thanks to the extensive use of high-end materials throughout the vehicle. The decor looks beautiful even in its most basic form. The interior design is clearly carefully thought out, since it successfully conveys an air of sophisticated elegance without coming off as excessive. Five adults can ride in optimal comfort in this vehicle and they will be well-supported in any seat along either row thanks to ample leg- and headroom.

The Audi Q5 has a fancy and familiar interior style that does not scream luxury but still exhibits something close to it. Insulation is good from outside noises like wind and its overall build quality is excellent. Most of its cabin surfaces look and feel posh but the overall design is rather dated. The car can support five seats on supportive and well-padded seating.

Technology & Safety

Safety tech of the car is made up of parking sensors at the front and back, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, rain-sensing wipers, and a rearview camera.

The Audi Q5 offers balanced approach, making 201 hp from a 2L turbo-four engine with an EPA rating of 23 mpg / 29 mpg for cities / highways.
