Thoughts on the upcoming Macan?

I might be in the market now that I have a kid and our two 3 series BMWs just aren't cutting it when we've tried to haul baby gear around plus two small dogs. Looking to increase space without getting an Escalade sized hauler.

Still, I am excited to see what Porsche does with the Macan (Q5 based) even though the options for a similarly equipped SQ5 will launch the price into fully equipped F80 M3 / E70 X5M Base price range.
