Serving Brentwood, TN

If you're ready to own a new car, a luxury SUV is a great option that offers plenty of room in the cabin and a high level of power under the hood. The 2019 Porsche Macan and the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC are models that are in demand and have a high level of appeal. Here are a few of the top comparisons between both models when making your selection.

Exterior Features

The 2019 Porsche Macan has been redesigned with new air intakes and an LED taillight strip, which spans across the tailgate and allows the vehicle to resemble the Cayenne and the Panamera. The 21-inch wheels contribute to the commanding look of the Macan and offer more traction on the road due to their size. The large headlamps and air intakes on the front of the car look bold but still allow the Macan to be recognizable in its class.

The exterior of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC features a sloping roofline that creates a sporty design on the new SUV. The large emblem is hard to miss on the chrome grille, which allows the GLC to appear more modern and sleek. Unfortunately, the vehicle appears less edgy and intimidating due to the fierce styling of the 2019 Porsche Macan, which looks more upscale.


Multiple driving modes are offered in the 2019 Porsche Macan, along with quick and responsive acceleration. The SUV can reach 60 mph in 6.1 seconds The vehicle has 348 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque and all-wheel-drive that comes standard. A seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission is paired with all of the engines that are available. The vehicle drives more like an athletic hatchback rather than a large SUV, which creates a memorable experience when spending time on the road.

The new Mercedes-Benz GLC is built with a 241-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel-drive comes standard with all-wheel-drive available. The car has quick acceleration and doesn't lag when tackling steep inclines. Compared to the sharp steering of the Macan, the Mercedes-Benz GLC's steering feels heavy and thick.

Interior Features

In the 2019 Porsche Macan, an 11-inch touchscreen replaces the 7-inch touchscreen that came standard in the previous Macan model. The air vents are now located beneath each screen. A Sports Response button sharpens the car's reaction. An air ionizer is one of the most innovative features that improve the air quality in the cabin. The center console looks sleek and modern with an array of identical buttons that are present. Optional upgrades include 17-way power sports seats and a smaller GT steering wheel for those who want the car to be even sportier.

Two USB ports, HD radio, Bluetooth, active brake assist, rain-sensing windshield wipers, driver drowsiness monitoring, and a rearview camera are provided in the GLC.
