Porsche Macan review - Reliability and safety

Porsche offers reassuring levels of reliability and safety with the Macan SUV

Porsche usually fares well in our Driver Power satisfaction surveys, however it did not appear in the latest results. The Macan is loosely based on the Audi Q5, which is a relatively reliable 4x4. With Porsche’s solid dependability, the Macan shouldn’t give you many ownership headaches. If it does, there is a large network of dealers in the UK so they should be able to sort out any issues – at a price of course.

The Macan performs well when it comes to safety. It’s the only Porsche on the market to have been crash tested by Euro NCAP, too, and was given a full five-star rating. The car is equipped with ESP and front collision warning sensors as standard, as well as lane departure warning. There’s also a rear side airbag option to further improve safety.

Warranty

As with all Porsches, the Macan comes as standard with a three-year 60,000-mile warranty.

Servicing

Porsche offers its 'My Porsche' digital system to configure and manage your servicing, appointments and to stay informed about any relevant information. It also provides service reminders, safety updates and even notifications concerning Porsche events.
