Porsche Ma­can

“Af­ford­able” and “Porsche” ... it’s a strug­gle to think of a less likely jux­ta­po­si­tion.

If Porsche’s Ma­can isn’t the cheap­est SUV in its class, it’s the cheap­est Porsche in decades. All ver­sions run a seven-speed dual-clutch “PDK” au­to­matic trans­mis­sion. We drive it lo­cally this month. Weirder yet, it looks as if the diesel is the bet­ter bet. Bit of a form re­ver­sal for a com­pany that un­til 2007 was “never” go­ing to have such pow­er­plant.

Adapted and trans­formed from Audi’s Q5, the brand’s first com­pact SUV is priced:

Turbo diesel .................................. $84,900 3.0-litre V6 .................................... $87,200 3.6-litre V6 ................................... $122,900
