Serving North Bethesda, MD

Throughout the Bethesda area, today's crossover SUV shoppers have elevated expectations for their next vehicle. The 2020 Porsche Macan receives ample attention from luxury SUV shoppers. This is a compact luxury crossover SUV that benefited from a recent facelift, and that has developed a stellar reputation throughout its history. The BMW X1 is also included in this vehicle class. It is a second-generation model that you may also be considering for your future purchase. While they sit in the same vehicle class, the 2020 Macan and the 2020 X1 deliver unique experiences behind the wheel.


The differences between the Macan and the X1 are immediately noticeable with the first look at their exteriors. The Macan has recognizable family traits, and these traits hint at Porsche's reputation for producing excitement behind the wheel. This SUV has a sporty, power-driven grille that wraps around the front end. Throughout the hood and roof, a dramatic swoop lends itself to superior aerodynamics. Rounded headlights, defined rocker panels, performance tires, quad exhaust tips, LED rear light bar, and a spoiler also boosts the exterior appeal of the Macan. In comparison, the 2020 BMW X1 has a more traditional SUV body style. The small grille at the front end has a segmented style that is characteristic of today's BMW vehicles. Large headlights, separated rear lights, dual exhaust tips, and moderate contouring throughout the sides complete the X1's look.


The interior of the 2020 Macan combines a sports car cockpit design with the modern appeal of an SUV. The center console angles sharply up to the dashboard, and it carries a leather-wrapped shifter and two rows of control buttons. The large display screen makes it easy for you to stay connected while you cruise through town. It delivers access to the navigation system, smart device connectivity, the sound system, and more. Between the sports steering wheel, the bolstered seats with leather material, the power liftgate, and other features, the Macan provides everything that you may be searching for in a new SUV. In the X1, the display screen sits above the dashboard, and it offers select media features. A charging station is available inside the center armrest. The X1 also has cupholders, a push-button parking brake, mounted steering wheel controls, a sound system, and a few other items.
