I would wait for the Macan for sure. If the Macan can replicate the overall responsiveness, brilliant steering and phenomenal ride/handling balance of the Cayenne in a smaller more dynamic package, it will be a real winner.

I used to be a big Audi fan, but after owning a Porsche and an M3, the Audis just don't cut it, R8 notwithstanding.
I think Audi fanboys prefer looking at their cars more than driving them. The R8 is a gem, but makes you wonder how much was really borrowed from Lamborghini?
