The Macan’s guidance system is tight on-center and frank on turn-in. Even without much road dialogue through the electrically assisted system, the steering manages to bolster the driver’s confidence. The brakes provide a firm pedal with stopping power strictly proportional to applied pressure. Likewise, the springs, the anti-roll bars, and the dampers check body rock and roll. The king is secure on his sport-seat throne, thanks to ideal orthopedic support and unyielding rib and thigh bolsters. This is truly the SUV for those who swore they’d never be caught driving one.
