2022 BMW X4 M vs. 2022 Porsche Macan


The rivalry between BMW and Porsche is long-standing, with both automakers having a history of competing. The two companies have made some of the most sought-after cars on the market and have offered consumers numerous options for years. However, even in this competitive environment, new models are still being introduced every year. One such is the 2022 BMW X4 M and the 2022 Porsche Macan, popular sport utility vehicles (SUVs) that offer much value for money. However, the question remains: which one should you buy? This article will help answer that question by comparing cars’ features, specs, and performance.

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design

The BMW X4 M looks more aggressive, with a wider stance and a grille that’s been pushed forward. The Porsche Macan has its angular look, but it’s not as aggressive as the BMW.

The Porsche Macan also has less drag than the BMW X4 M because of its shorter nose and tail. The best way to reduce drag is by having a smooth car shape, which allows air to flow around it more easily—and that’s why the Porsche Macan will be faster in straight-aways than the BMW X4 M.

  • Interior Design

The 2022 BMW X4 M’s interior is luxurious and comfortable. It has a more elegant appearance than the 2022 Porsche Macan, with soft leather seats and a more refined look. The 2022 BMW X4 M also has a better ride quality, thanks to its smoother suspension system. In addition, the 2022 BMW X4 M has a bigger trunk than the 2022 Porsche Macan, which makes it great for carrying luggage or groceries when you’re not taking it out on some twisty country roads.

Technology & Safety

The BMW X4 M has a better safety rating. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2022 BMW X4 M 5 stars out of 5 in overall crash protection, with four stars for frontal crash protection and side impact protection. Meanwhile, the 2022 Porsche Macan received only 3 stars overall, scoring 4 or 5 on all tests except rollover resistance (where it received 2) and pedestrian safety (with no ratings).

Additionally, the 2022 BMW X4 M comes standard with several driver-assistance features that can enhance your driving experience and make staying safe behind the wheel easier. These include Active Driving Assistant Plus, which includes lane departure warning and intervention; cruise control with braking function; fatigue detection system; lane keeping assistant; front collision warning system with pedestrian detection capability; pre-sense rear cross-traffic alert system; speed limit info display; adaptive brake lights; headlight washers that activate when you use either turn signal (think about how great this is if someone behind you is riding your tail?); automatic high beams that adjust accordingly based on surrounding cars’ headlights—and much more!


The BMW X4 M features a 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 473 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque. The Porsche Macan has a 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 400 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque.

The higher power and torque of the BMW’s engine will make it easier for you to accelerate from stoplights, pass slower drivers on the highway, and quickly get up to speed on freeways when merging into traffic from interchanges.

The Bottom Line

The 2022 BMW X4 M is a more practical choice for most people. It has less power than the 2022 Porsche Macan, but it also costs less and is more comfortable to drive. The 2022 BMW X4 M also has more features, such as an excellent warranty and plenty of available storage space.
