2020 Porsche Macan vs 2020 BMW X1

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

Farmington Hills drivers who are preparing to take home a new luxury SUV expect great things from their next vehicle. After reviewing the many vehicles that sit in the compact luxury crossover SUV class, your attention has settled on the Macan and the X1. The 2020 Porsche Macan is the product of substantial auto engineering evolution, and it shows off the results of a recent facelift. The 2020 BMW X1 is included in the model’s second generation, and this generation launched a few years ago. As you continue your review of these two luxury models, their undeniable differences are increasingly noticeable.


With an initial glimpse of their exterior designs, the Macan and X1 quickly express their differences. The Porsche Macan for 2020 carries many of its brand’s family traits. Porsche is a brand that is known for luxury as well as performance, and this is brought to life through the Macan’s athletic, commanding grille that wraps across the SUV’s rounded nose. The flowing elements carry on throughout the aerodynamic profile that swoops from front to rear. Powerful rocker panels also define the exterior design, signature headlights, rear LED light bar, quad exhaust tips, a spoiler, and performance tires. In contrast, the exterior design of the 2020 BMW X1 has classic elements that its brand is known for, such as its divided grille design. This is combined with a traditional SUV profile, large headlights, dual exhaust tips, modest contouring, and separated rear lights.


The sportiness of the Macan is also on display inside its luxurious cabin. The elevating design of the center console and its dual rows of functional buttons create a cockpit-like feel. A large media screen offers a full-color display and touch controls for the infotainment system features, the rearview camera, the navigation system, and more. Other features include leather interior with heated seats, a sunroof, smart device connectivity, a high-end sound system, advanced safety technologies, and more. The interior design of the X1 has a more traditional feel. Its equipment includes a sound system, leather interior, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with mounted controls, a push-button parking brake, a device charging station located in the armrest, and other features.


The behind-the-wheel experience that you can enjoy in these two vehicles is stunningly different. The Macan is available in several trims with three powertrains. The base powertrain provides you with 248 horsepower, and this magnifies to 437 horsepower at the top trim level. The Macan is equally sophisticated in the design of its suspension system, steering capabilities, and transmission. If you decide to purchase the X1, your crossover SUV will come with one powertrain design across two available trims. This 228-horsepower engine is paired with an automatic transmission, automatic start-stop, anti-lock brakes, power steering, and more.
