2021 BMW X4 M vs. 2021 Porsche Macan


The 2021 BMW X4 M is a superbly engineered SUV that has plenty to offer to any discerning motorist. With performance specs that are comparable to many supercars, the 2021 X4 M comes with added functionality that makes it as outstanding off the track as it is on the track. Build-quality is great and the car offers an exceptional ride quality.

When it comes to the 2021 Porsche Macan, you can expect to get an outstanding compact SUV that comes with a host of features. The Macan has limited internal space though, which makes the car difficult to use for everyday functions. For a Porsche, the 2021 Macan also has poor quality material in the cabin, something that takes away from the premium tag that this car has.

Design & Style

One of the distinctive features of the 2021 BMW X4 M is the sloping roofline that gives this sports SUV such a great look. The sporty features are further enhanced by a beautiful grille and curved body. Inside the 2021 X4 M, you get a sporty design with an intuitively designed instrument panel that has everything within reach. When it comes to the 2021 Porsche Macan, the exterior build follows the design cues of Porsche which are outstanding. Inside the Macan is another story. While stylish, Porsche decided to use hard plastics and fabrics which cheapens the look of the interior. It is also surprising considering the price tag of this SUV.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 BMW X4 M comes standard with an infotainment system that is operated by various inputs including gestures, voice commands, and touch. This happens via a ten-inch display system that is mounted at the center of the control panel. Smartphone integration and wireless charging are standard, as is the premium audio system. The 2021 Macan on the other hand takes a surprisingly spartan approach to standard tech features with most being premium options.


The base model of the 2021 BMW X4 M is motivated by a three-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that produces over 500 horsepower. This gives the 2021 X4 M serious power that is certain to thrill any motoring enthusiast who happens to drive this car. Even at high speeds, the car remains composed and ambient noise is kept at a minimum thanks to a well-engineered cabin. The 2021 Porsche Macan on the other hand features a 2-liter turbocharged engine that also gives this compact SUV lots of power. Ride quality and handling are excellent and the ride quality is superb.

The Bottom Line

These two SUVs look great and ride great. They are both well engineered and have a lot to offer any discerning driver. The differences however are considerable. The 2021 BMW X4 M rides better and feels like a top-class luxury SUV. It also offers far better value for money. For these reasons, the winner of this comparison is the 2021 BMW X4 M.
