Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 vs Porsche Macan GTS

Both Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 and Porsche Macan make use of two turbos on their V6s, one for each cylinder line. In the Sport Plus Mode, the Mercedes engine offers a better response while Porsche delivers top dynamic performance but this only happens after a short turbo lag which cannot be covered by the sensational PDK automatic gearbox.

Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 is the right solution for everyday use because it provides an exceptional ride comfort. But on the other side is not as sharp as the Macan GTS.
The pneumatic suspension (standard on GLC 43, optional on Macan GTS) is a bit more permissive and generates a slight roll, while Porsche is the sharpest, fascinatingly sporty and in the Sport Plus Mode the roll is almost zero.

Despite the fact Macan GTS is the heaviest in the test, it feels lighter and more precise to drive.
But for this fascinating driving, Porsche Macan GTS is extremely expensive. More than 10,000 euro price difference and a less standard equipment compared with GLC 43 is a big disadvantage.
Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 offers the best value for money.
