While there are plenty of luxury SUVs for sale near Phoenix, AZ, finding the right vehicle for you can be a bit trickier. That’s why we are here to compare the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC and the 2020 Porsche Macan S. This way, we can see which model you might be more inclined to buy or lease. For this comparison, we are going to check out the AMG® GLC 43 and Macan S trims.
To begin, we’ll look at the power and performance of these two models. We find many of our customers are most interested in the speed and power of the model they’re looking at. So, how powerful is the 2020 Mercedes-AMG® GLC 43? You’ll have a powerful AMG®-enhanced 3.0-liter V6 biturbo engine that pumps out 385 horsepower and 384 lb.-ft. of torque. This isn’t much more powerful than the Macan S and its 348 hp and 354 lb.-ft. of torque, but it will get you a faster acceleration speed of 4.7 seconds, as opposed to the 5.1-second 0-60 miles per hour acceleration speed of the Macan S.
2020 AMG® GLC 43
|2020 Macan S|
|385 hp & 384 lb.-ft.||Horsepower & Torque||348 hp & 354 lb.-ft.|
|4.7 seconds||0-60 mph acceleration||5.1 seconds.|
|130 mph||Top speed||157 mph|
|56.9 cu. ft.||Cargo Space||52.9 cu. ft.|
Even though the GLC gives you more power and a faster acceleration time, the Macan S does have a faster track speed. Even if you go with the 21-inch summer tires of the AMG® GLC 43, that will still only get you 155 mph, which is just a bit lower than the 157 mph of the Macan S. Even though power is important in a luxury SUV, there’s still the fact that you’re looking for an SUV as opposed to a coupe or sedan. So, how much can you fit in the GLC? You’ll have a max cargo space of 56.9 cubic feet when all the seats are folded down. This is 4 cu. ft. more than what the Macan S offers. So, if you’re looking for a powerful vehicle that has plenty of cargo space to utilize, then you might want to look at the 2020 Mercedes-AMG® GLC 43 over the 2020 Porsche Macan S.
