2021 Volvo XC60 vs. 2021 Porsche Macan: Size & Utility

While Porsche doesn't tell us how much legroom you get in the rear seats of the 2021 Porsche Macan, the reviewers at Cars.com say, "The backseat has minimal legroom and no seating adjustments." By contrast, the 2021 Volvo XC60 comes standard with adjustable back seats and legroom much more typical for this class.

Meanwhile, when it comes to utility, the Volvo XC60 provides a whole lot more available cargo space: up to 63.3 cubic feet with the rear seats folded compared to just 52.9 cubic feet in the 2021 Porsche Macan. Furthermore, roof rails come standard on the Volvo XC60 for attaching oversized gear like cargo bins and surf boards. They'll cost you extra on the already-more-expensive Macan.

2021 Volvo XC60 vs. 2021 Porsche Macan: Comfort & Features

Take a close look at the features you get in both these vehicles and you'll find many advantages for the Volvo. For instance, the 2021 Volvo XC60 has a superior standard audio system, with 220 watts of system power for improved volume and clarity. The standard audio system in the 2021 Porsche Macan has just 160 watts. You get a standard panoramic sunroof with power sunshade in the Volvo XC60; that will cost you extra on the Porsche SUV. Even something as basic as power-adjustable lumbar support for the front seats will cost you extra on the 2021 Porsche Macan -- but not the Volvo XC60. You don't have to break the bank to get all the comfort and convenience you want from your next luxury SUV when you choose Volvo.

Volvo XC60 performance specs

2021 Volvo XC60 vs. 2021 Porsche Macan: Performance & Drive

With Porsche, you anticipate performance and power -- yet the 2021 Volvo XC60 is a sporty performer in its own right. It comes standard with 250 horsepower, compared to 248 from the Porsche Macan. Of course, both models offer upgraded engines with more power on tap, if you want some additional quickness for those short freeway onramps. However, there's no hybrid version of the Porsche Macan available yet. Instead, choose the 2021 Volvo XC60 Recharge with the T8 engine. It's a plug-in hybrid combining an electric motor with a turbocharged, supercharged four-cylinder engine for outstanding efficiency and a thrilling 400 horsepower! That's more power than you find in any Porsche Macan, Macan S or even Macan GTS.

Volvo XC60 safety features

2021 Volvo XC60 vs. 2021 Porsche Macan: Safety & Technology

Porsche does offer some driver assist technology on the 2021 Macan, but almost none of it is standard. By contrast, every 2021 Volvo XC60 comes standard with automatic emergency braking, which is an additional upgrade on the new 2021 Porsche Macan. What's more, the BLIS™ blind spot information system with Steer Assist and Cross Traffic Alert with auto-brake is also standard -- and you won't find features like these on any new Porsche Macan. The 2021 Volvo XC60 is a powerful demonstration of what the latest technology and engineering from Volvo means for your safety. Even the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety agrees, having named the 2021 Volvo XC60 a 2021 Top Safety Pick+ award winner!
