There are times, such as during a global pandemic, that Russia’s size certainly comes in handy. Test drives in distant countries are out of the question these days, so it’s all the better that one can find almost any climate and any kind of terrain without ever crossing an actual border. On this occasion, for Porsche’s Macan Highlands Experience, a 2 hour flight into Mineralny Vody was sufficient to change the scenery dramatically.
The Macan is Porsche’s best selling car, so it’s a bit of an anomaly that it’s probably the model I’ve written the least about thus far. As such, it was a good thing that nearly the entire Macan range was available to drive on this trip. With only the base model missing, though not exactly missed, the Macan S, GTS and Turbo were present in a wide variety of paint colours ranging from boring black to rather striking peanut M&M blue. And as is the norm with press cars, they were all rather heavily optioned which left us wanting for nothing in terms of features and creature comfort.
