sgCarMart – Up to date, Porsche has sold more than 950 Porsche Cayennes in Singapore - the car that was initially loathed by Porsche purists and fans alike when it first made its debut here in 2003. Of course, the SUV went on to become the sports carmaker's cash cow, thanks to its driving capability and hauling practicality.
Thus, when the Macan was announced some years back, the idea of having a compact SUV was more easily accepted. Interestingly, the Macan was first known as Cajun, which was an indication for Cayenne Junior, and it wasn't until two years back when Porsche decided to name its baby SUV the Macan - a word that means 'Tiger' in the Indonesian language.
Boring history of car names aside, compact SUVs and crossovers seem to be hitting it off well in Singapore. Perhaps it's the sweet spot these cars have with their perfect size inside and out without coming across as being too big, which requires you to extend your neck a little higher every time you try to make a turn at the multi-storey carpark. The BMW has its X3, Range Rover has its Evoque and soon enough, Lexus will have its NX, which is due for launch in the fourth quarter of this year.
