Safety

To help make backing safer, the Range Rover Evoque’s optional cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The Macan doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

The Range Rover Evoque HSE/Autobiography’s optional driver alert monitor detects an inattentive driver then sounds a warning and suggests a break. According to the NHTSA, drivers who fall asleep cause about 100,000 crashes and 1500 deaths a year. The Macan doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

Both the Range Rover Evoque and the Macan have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, rearview cameras, available crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems and around view monitors.

Engine

The Range Rover Evoque’s optional 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. produces 38 more horsepower (286 vs. 248) and 22 lbs.-ft. more torque (295 vs. 273) than the Macan’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl.

Transmission

A nine-speed automatic is standard on the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, for better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. Only a seven-speed automatic is available for the Macan.

Suspension and Handling

For better maneuverability, the Range Rover Evoque’s turning circle is 1.4 feet tighter than the Macan’s (37.3 feet vs. 38.7 feet).

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover Evoque has a greater minimum ground clearance than the Macan (8.3 vs. 8 inches), allowing the Range Rover Evoque to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

Chassis

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs up to about 250 pounds less than the Porsche Macan.

The Range Rover Evoque is 1 foot shorter than the Macan, making the Range Rover Evoque easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Cargo Capacity

The Range Rover Evoque 5-Door has a much larger cargo volume than the Macan with its rear seat up (20.3 vs. 17.6 cubic feet).

To make loading groceries and cargo easier when your hands are full, the Range Rover Evoque’s liftgate can be opened and closed just by kicking your foot under the back bumper, leaving your hands completely free. The Macan doesn’t offer a hands-free gesture to open its liftgate, forcing you to put cargo down if your hands are full.

Ergonomics

The Range Rover Evoque has a standard remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The Macan doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

The Range Rover Evoque HSE/Autobiography offers an optional heads-up display that projects speed and navigation instruction readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The Macan doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are optional on the Range Rover Evoque to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The Macan doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors available for the Range Rover Evoque detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The Macan doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

The Range Rover Evoque (except SE)’s optional Park Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Macan doesn’t offer an automated parking system.

Model Availability

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque comes in four door and soft top bodystyles; the Porsche Macan isn’t available as a soft top.
