The 2015 Porsche Macan has a step-in and seat height that's atypical for a crossover SUV.

    Sounds good for people with a long torso...

    Maybe also reminiscent of cars like the old 4Runner where you were up high but your feet were still out in front of you when you sat down.

    Can you adjust the seat height? To me, that's the best feature of the adjustable seats. Higher for shorter people and lower for taller people.

    I'd hope that you'd have some sort of easy entry/exit option on a car that expensive, especially since a lot of VW group cars have such a feature. Oddly enough, my mom's 2013 Tiguan SEL (full power seats w/ memory) doesn't have the option, but it can be enabled through some software coding. Even my friend's 2004 CLK 500 has a convenient feature that tilts the power adjustable steering wheel up and out of the way when you remove the key, although I'm not sure if it adjusts the seat at all.

    Interesting that Subaru figured out how to let customers easily slide into a '14 Forester CUV . Then again, the Forester's a typical CUV (including XT variant) and not a sports car SUV.

    Was nice to discover the Macan, unlike its Q5 relative, having quite a bit of driver legroom. But was also surprised when comparing the Macan to the Audi Q3 that interior and cargo room of the two seemed very similar.

    I love the Macan seating. It is really nice balance between a high SUV and normal car. It's not too high that you have "climb" into it as many SUVs are, yet high enough so you enjoy the higher ride.

    While driving, you don't feel like you're driving an 18-wheeler (like some SUVs), but more that you are in a normal car heading downhill and you can actually see what's happening a few cars ahead.
