13. PORSCHE MACAN
IF you crave a sports car, but need the practicality of an SUV, look no further than Porsche’s sublime Macan. Few models combine such impressive comfort and refinement (provided you specify the optional PASM adaptive dampers) while also offering pace and precision.
Four-wheel drive ensures the Macan feels reassuring in all conditions, and our favourite diesel model is reasonably economical.
