You can fit 2 kids in car seats, a 65+ pound dog, and a reasonable amount of luggage/cargo in a Macan????Not true.
Porsche Macan, go test drive one and tell me you don't smile. The base model (2017 and 2018 MY) can be purchased for $30,000 (with some negotiating) with sub 30k miles. The engine in the base model... EA888 Gen 3 (Longitudinal)... with a few tuning options. Stock power rating is 252HP/273TQ...
Example of a tuning option: APR Stage 1 Plus (91oct) 317HP/363TQ...
Yes, my sister does itYou can fit 2 kids in car seats, a 65+ pound dog, and a reasonable amount of luggage/cargo in a Macan????
On my fault, you're right... he wanted to be 30k or less...LMAO. He is trying to be under 30k comon now
That's me. 47. Happy to drive a base model paid-for car at this point in my life and save save save!Yeah, possibly. I’d still like to keep my budget (maybe a smidge over) and just use that to make my decision. It’s self-imposed, not a hard stop really. Just don’t want to spend more than that right now. I’m early 40s, and my money is going into maxing out my 401k, putting money toward other investments, college funds for the kids, and trying to retire early. I think the GTI has spoiled me in a lot of ways. It’s hard to top for smiles per dollar.
According to the actual specs, Macan is almost identical to GTI space wise.We looked at Macans before settling on the Q5. Same chassis, but the Porsche is better tuned. The biggest shortcoming is that the hatch area is tiny, like smaller than a GTI tiny.
Me too dude. I love to send it in this thing. It's a stoplight killer and that's the best part...smile each time I use the launch control and I here that little IS20 spool up through the open intake. It's the most fun car I've owned.Yeah. I'm 27 with a gf and 2 dogs and no plans of kids in the next 3-5 years, so agreed that my perspective/feelings about the car are biased. But i feel i put it all out there for him to decide on.
But yeah dude, the 4 Motion Golf Wagon options with the same upgrades half the GTI/R owners buy anyway will turn them into some of the most capable, well-rounded cars you could ask for (for the money).
I'm smitten with mine, never been so happy with a car. The feeling I get every time I look at/drive it is reminiscent of the feeling I had when I got my first GTI at 20 after saving up since I was 17, only this is so much more adult and *useful*. The GTI satisfied the literal boy-racer in me who fell in love with cars watching Fast and the Furious when I was 7, and playing Need for Speed, Forza, and Gran Turismo growing up. The Alltrack satisfies the adult in me whose thinking about buying a house in the woods and having what I need to haul stuff from Home Depot, and go adventuring with my little family, while still having fun every time I'm behind the wheel.
Reeeeeeeeeeeeally? I didn't know that...I need to check that out....Or an XC60. Supercharged and Turbocharged SUV, with air ride suspension. My aunt has one and her son (who drives a tuned 2015 WRX) told me its impressively fast and fun to drive
Beat you to it....see third post LOLSubaru Forester?
Right, but tiny compared to a Q5 and the OP is looking to get more size, not the same, just taller and 800 pounds heavier.According to the actual specs, Macan is almost identical to GTI space wise.
I dunno, my sister loves her Macan and they use it as their primary family car.
