5. Porsche Macan Turbo
The introduction of the Macan meant that Porsche is considering the SUV segment as one of its main markets. The Macan is a mid-sized SUV with a performance-oriented design, drivetrain and technology. But most of all, it is one of the best cars in the segment. But the Macan Turbo is interesting since it has a 3.0-liter turbo V6 engine producing 400 HP.
Also, they mated it to a performance-calibrated seven-speed automatic and intelligent all-wheel drive. And all of that is responsible for its 4.4 second 0 to 60 mph time and 163 mph top speed. The base price for the Macan Turbo is high at $77,000.
That is steep since it is just a mid-size SUV with not that much space. However, if you want more performance and want to pay $10,000 extra, move up to the Macan Turbo Performance Package. It delivers 440 HP and a 4.2 second 0 to 60 mph time.
