According to J.D. Power the 2016 Porsche Macan overcomes all competitors for Initial Quality Rating in a compact premium SUV.

The Porsche Macan has been a customer favorite since its introduction to the brand. The sleek and sporty exterior fits right in with Porsche’s sporting heritage, and the quality that Porsche’s engineers put into the design of this machine is nothing short of amazing. J.D. Power annually awards vehicles in several different categories—one being Initial Quality Rating. The Initial Quality Study (IQS) examines issues experienced within the first ninety days after purchasing, mainly focusing on mechanical quality and design of areas such as powertrain, body and interior, and features and accessories. The 2016 Porsche Macan was the winner this year for compact premium SUVs. Visit Porsche Santa Barbara where we’re proud to offer award-winning vehicles like the 2016 Porsche Macan.
