I just traded in my Macan Turbo, with all performance options, for an iPace.
Honestly, there is no comparison drive-wise. The iPace is simply in a different category. The Macan doesn't have a lot of body roll nor a high center of gravity compared to other SUVs.. but then you get in an iPace and it's night & day better. It's not just a win for the iPace, it's 100% an entire category better IMO.
Also have to 100% agree with the rev holding in Sport & especially Sport Plus in the Macan. It's incredibly annoying to drive around with Sport or Sport Plus on as it holds higher than necessary RPMS and the turbo is pretty whiney. Yet driving in normal mode is underwhelming performance wise.
As far as the interior, the Macan & iPace are both spectacular. I probably prefer the iPace more, mainly because it has a bit more character to it, but the Macan interior is absolutely fantastic with superb fit & finish.
Ironically the Macan is many, many times better than an F-Pace & E-Pace, which really shows how out of left field the iPace was/is.
