The new Porsche Macan S has been named ‘Best Sports SUV’ at the annual What Car? Car of the Year Awards.
This latest recognition underlines the Macan success story. Since its launch in 2014, more than 350,000 examples have been delivered worldwide, testament to the model’s reputation as the sports car of the compact SUV segment. The powerful, 354 PS V6 petrol engine of the S model asserts the dynamic reputation of the Macan, and the latest generation also introduces a refreshed style to the exterior design, greater interior comfort and increased connectivity.
The latest Macan was launched in the UK just over a year ago, and the range has since expanded to include GTS and Turbo derivatives.
The magazine’s judging panel commented; “the Macan S is more enjoyable than its rivals on the road, thanks to super-accurate steering, tightly-controlled body movements and a wonderfully balanced feel.”
The judges’ verdict was emphatic; “if you are looking for a sports SUV that’s as well-rounded as it is thrilling, the Macan S is the one to choose.” The award was presented to Porsche Cars Great Britain Managing Director, Marcus Eckermann, by What Car? Editor, Steve Huntingford.

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
