Luxury compact SUVs are popular for their maneuverability, versatility, and exciting features. However, it can be challenging to know which option is best for you with so many impressive SUVs in this competitive segment. To help you choose the luxury compact SUV that's best for you, we compare the new SQ5 and Porsche Macan S.

Find out what happens when the new SQ5 and Macan S go head to head.


The SQ5 offers a lower starting price than a comparable Macan S base model. Since base models for the Macan S are harder to come by, you will likely find that an available Macan S model is even more expensive. If that wasn't enough, you can expect staggering pricing conventions from the Porsche brand that can add tens of thousands to the price of the Macan S.


The Porsche Macan S neglects the comfort of rear-seat passengers with cramped leg- and headroom. The SQ5 offers plenty of space for all passengers while also providing standard leather-appointed seating surfaces, which you have to pay extra for with the Macan S.

The SQ5 offers more cargo space than the Macan S, allowing you to take more luggage and equipment along for the ride.

Interior Features

The new SQ5 not only offers standard leather seats, but it also comes with standard heated front seats and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. If you want features like these for the Macan S, expect to pay extra.


The new SQ5 has an advantage over the Macan S with a 349-horsepower turbocharged V6 engine to the Macan S's 348-horsepower engine.
