Quite often the term ‘sports car handling’ is thrown around almost every time a new car is launched. Usually the claimed ‘sports car handling’ falls short of the marketing dribble. But when those claims are tossed around by one of the most renowned sports car makers in the world, you’d better sit up and listen.

The Macan represents the first all-new model from Porsche since the Panamera and breaks into the lively mid-sized SUV market where its donor sibling, the Audi Q5, enjoys much success. Although the Macan shares its platform with the Q5, Porsche is quick to inform us that deep down, more than two-thirds of the car is brand new from Stuttgart.

Design-wise, the Macan finds closer relation to its 911 series than the larger Cayenne. A svelte rising bonnet gives the SUV a streamlined impression and the lowered ride height gives the driver a perspective that’s more familiar to a sedan than an SUV.

This lowered height and sightline is indicative of Porsche’s promise of its handling prowess. And it becomes immediately apparent that this SUV is more agile than it looks. The twin charged 3.0-litre V6 under the bonnet packs a healthy 340bhp making the Macan feel light on its feet. A staggering 460Nm of torque is made known from 1,450rpm allows the sporty SUV to grab every gear with mucho gusto!

The entire experience from registering my car on OneShift to the handing over to the dealer was very pleasant. The process at OneShift was efficient and transparent. Special thanks to RenAi from OneShift who was very detailed and helpful.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
