I have a 2016 Macan, which is essentially the same as the 2015. Great car, and have had no issues so far. It handles great, runs quietly, and I usually get about 25 mpg on the highway and 20-21 in town (auto off/on turned on). I have two medium size dogs and they are okay in the back with the back seats still up. The back seat isn't the roomiest, but I have had four adults in it an no one complained. I'm not super crazy about Porsche's new interior styling with the big, raised, center console, but I do like having real buttons for controls instead of soft, touch screen buttons. Porsche's navigation system works, but it isn't the easiest to use, but I can't compare it to the BMW (but it is worse than VWs, Jeep's, and Land Rover's)--it's usable but could easily have been much better. Especially since it has been bad since 2005, and isn't much different in 2016. The fit and finsh are very good, as are the materials inside. The PDK transmission is flawless, allowing lighning quick manual shifts if you want, but excellent just left alone as well--you don't even really feel the shifts. Interior storage is acceptable, but their place for sunglasses is at the bottom front of each front seat, which isn't ideal. There isn't a good place to put a smart phone, but the hole where the accessory outlet is located works, if not ideal. Over all I'm happy with my purchase.
