Luxury cars continue to be in demand for their posh designs and advanced technology that is included in the cabins. The 2019 Porsche Macan and the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC are top-selling models that continue to have a high level of appeal. It’s important to know a few ways that each model differs from one another when narrowing down your options.

Exterior Features

Porsche is known for having sleek exteriors that appear in films and are eye-catching for their modern designs. With the new 2019 Porsche Macan, the car doesn’t disappoint with its aesthetics. A long tail light is one of the main features that is eye-catching and draws attention to the rear of the vehicle and looks modern with its minimal but bold design. The wide black grille on the front of the SUV is sleek and minimal and is paired with air intakes that add an athletic touch to the car. Overall, its modular-longitudinal architecture creates a regal exterior that is still sporty and proves that you don’t have to be overly flashy to make a good first impression on the road.

The SUV features a coupe body style that includes wide taillights and a wide chrome grille that looks aggressive but upscale. Although the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC has an intentional design that is modern and well-thought out, it has small side mirrors that affect the visibility that is offered while sitting in the driver’s seat. There are few complaints about the exterior, but it still fails to have any notable designs that are as bold as the look of the Macan.


Inside of the 2019 Porsche Macan is a larger 11-inch screen that replaces the seven-inch screen that comes standard with its predecessor. A voice control system offers convenience and reduces distractions while spending time behind the wheel. Drivers can also choose to purchase the Sports Chrono package that offers multiple driving modes.

Road noise is one of the main complaints when riding in the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC, which affects the overall comfort of the interior setting. Fortunately, there’s plenty of head and legroom that is provided in the cabin to ensure that passengers don’t feel cramped. The overall quality of the cabin is impressive with premium materials used and additional cargo amenities that are available.


A turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four comes standard in the new Macan and offers a power jump. Although the 2018 model has an engine that generates 252 horsepower, the new Macan offers 300 horsepower for more impressive acceleration that will allow you to get to where you need to go quicker. Drivers can also select a single-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 engine that gets 350 horsepower. Each of the engines also includes a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic for added performance.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC is built with a 2.0-liter I-4 engine that has 241 horsepower, which is significantly less than the new 2019 Porsche Macan and results in slower acceleration. The car gets combined mpg of 23-24, which is average for its class. Although the vehicle offers standard all-wheel drive, it dampens the acceleration and results in plenty of lags while operating the SUV. Different driving modes are also provided to ensure that you can customize the type of ride that you prefer.
