Stunned by some of the negativity on here! There have been a few reviews in Singaporean/Malaysian/Thai/Filipino publications about the 2.0L Macan [albeit when it had 237hp rather than the 252hp output we see today] and they were all very, very favorable. Don't expect the pace of the S or the madness of the Turbo and you'll have a lively little crossover with enough power for day-to-day life.
We have a 2.0L 2015 Q5 in my family, so I feel like I can comment on the ability of the engine. We've only got 211hp but honestly, the platform is solid and comfortable and I find the engine incredibly zesty - and I'm coming out of a Cayenne S! Excellent pulling power, plenty of go when I need to overtake or zip by, very decent economy. I love that Audi and having driven the Macan, I believe that Porsche's tweaks to the platform and the added engine power will only make this a more compelling buy for those of us who don't need to blaze by everything. In today's speed-restricted and traffic-choked world, you've really got to ask yourself how much of the engine in front of you will you actually use?
My two cents - hope this helps and happy to answer questions!
