Since its inception in 2014, the Porsche Macan has reigned as the sportiest choice in the compact luxury crossover segment.
Whereas the larger Cayenne is a bit more family-oriented, the Macan stands as a sort of halfway measure for folks who want something lively, but larger than the usual sports car.
Refreshed for the 2019 model year, Porsche doubled down on its positioning, creating a new Macan that still places driving dynamics first.
However, that sort of tunnel vision means other details have gotten lost in the periphery.
It's not perfect, but it still shines in the right instances.
Life is full of sacrifices.
The 2019 Porsche Macan S is no exception, offering up some of its daily drivability in favor of making its occupants smile at every corner.
Standard equipment borders on barren, but that's no different than any other Porsche.
Yet, if you're willing to acknowledge and accept these compromises, you'll end up more than content.
