There are many family cars on the market, but none that combine SUV practicality with the pleasure of driving a sports car quite like a Porsche.
Giving up GT-inspired driving experiences when you add extra members to your family isn’t a choice you need to make when you choose a Porsche. Space, functionality and luxury combine in Porsche cars like the Macan, Cayenne and Panamera. Even if your family’s already grown up and summertime activities are on the agenda, there’s a Porsche that’s perfect for road trips, country walks and heading to the beach. But which is best?
The Porsche Macan: sporty and surprising
In the sleek and spacious Porsche Macan you’ll find all the benefits of its iconic sibling, the Cayenne, but in a more compact and refined package. Proving that large 4x4 vehicles can be fun and fast, the Macan blends Porsche performance with practicality.
Its capable suspension doesn’t transmit bumps in the road to passengers, and with precision comfort seats it’s a pleasure to travel long distances in. A passenger-primed interior doesn’t compromise handling and assistance though: the classy dash controls are intelligently laid out and the steering, driver seat height and pedals are perfectly weighted.
The Porsche Cayenne: an SUV icon
Performance-focused 4x4s don’t come much more iconic than the Porsche Cayenne. Its instantly-recognisable shape houses impressive road prowess enhanced by intuitive on-road assistance like corner control, switchable driving modes and air-shifting spoilers.
It’s fabulously fast, with the Cayenne Turbo model surging from 0-62mph in an incredible 3.9 seconds – not what you’d expect from an SUV – and optimised for safety thanks to quality brakes, available in ceramic or tungsten-carbide on request. Best of all, the interior boasts space aplenty for even the tallest family members, and the 745 litre boot is primed for days out, holidays or taking the dogs for a walk.
The Porsche Panamera: luxury meets technology
As sleek in the wild as it is in the city, the Porsche Panamera is the family car that never looks out of place. Not only does it look stunning, it’s home to more driving technology than seems reasonable. It’s available in petrol, diesel and hybrid engines – all of which boast superior speed, acceleration, handling and a satisfying Porsche engine tone.
The Porsche Panamera’s interior is awash with tech, including comprehensive driver information and diagnostics – and even entertainment screens for those sat in the rear. The hatchback boot gives plenty of room for storing and transporting, while seamlessly blending into the consolidated exterior appearance. Take the family out for the day, then head into the city for a couple’s dinner: in both scenarios, the Panamera is built to impress.
