Default Macan Turbo vs. Cayenne Turbo.

Looking for feedback on the 15-16 Macan Turbo vs 11-13 Cayenne Turbo. I dont need a size larger than the Macan, but the Cayenne Turbo is such a beast.

On road performance and fun factor with reliability (Ill pick up a warranty on either) are my priorities.

Thoughts?

The Cayenne will be quite a bit faster but, in my opinion, nowhere as nice to drive because it’s too big. But of course it has more off-road capability than the Macan.

I think the PCM will also be much more modern on the Macan. If you can squeeze a ‘17 Macan you can even get the newer one again.

Curious where you would pick up a warranty for a 7+ year old Cayenne.

I didn't realize a 11-13 Cayenne Turbo is faster than a 15-16 Macan Turbo.

I would get the 15-18 Cayenne Turbo, but it doesn't have pdk, but not sure how much of a difference it matters.

How's the shifting speed on the Cayenne?

I'd steer clear of the 2011-13 MY as they had the most problems.
No doubt it will be faster but it's better to take a hit in performance and gain more reliability with the Macan tt, along with piece of mind in owning a newer car.

A 2013 Cayenne Turbo:

comes packed with a turbocharged, 4.8-liter, V-8 engine that cranks out 500-horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque.
Zero to 60 miles per hour happens in a brisk 4.6 seconds. Estimated fuel economy is 15/22 mpg city/highway driving and 17 mpg combined.


The 3.6L V6 in the Macan Turbo has 400 HP and 406 TQ and with the Sport Chrono package will do 0 - 60 MPH in 4.4 seconds.
It will do significantly better in the mileage department and is rated at 17/23. Many people typically get ~25+ MPG in highway
driving.


The Cayenne is a beast - and handles like a truck. The Macan handles like a sports sedan.

Maybe driving 50 mph and like a granny. I average 15- 16 mpg total in my Turbo PP

I get 16 to 18 on a daily average with my TURBO, having fun in the canyons, driving in the mountains with an occasional 1 to 3 psi boost , but I thought my
computer was acting up when it said 26.8 @ 75 on the open highway. WTF the range went up to over 400 miles.....after 200 miles of being surprised. I couldn't
take it anymore and went back to a fun 24mpg for the rest of the trip.
