The Porsche Panamera is a practical choice for those wanting four seats and incredible performance. The car also has an impressive interior too.
While it may look as though it has odd proportions, the Porsche Panamera handles like a fantastic sports car. The range starts with the Panamera 3.6 litre V6 which will sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just under seven seconds, and a second quicker with the firm's PDK auto gearbox.
Drivers can also opt for the Panamera S, 4S and GTS which have a 4.8 litre V8 engine - the S will go from 0 to 62 mph in five seconds with the GTS being slightly quicker. For those who like even more performance, the Panamera Turbo will travel from 0 to 62mph in 4.2 seconds and the Panamera Turbo S offers the best driving experience and will complete the same distance in 3.8 seconds.
For those who want excellent performance levels while lowering the running costs, the Porsche Panamera hybrid also makes for a very good choice. With this level of performance, fuel economy for the Panamera will be around the 30 mpg mark while the petrol hybrid version will return 42 mpg and the car will travel 22 miles on battery power alone. There's also a diesel engine available which should return 45 mpg.
There's no doubt that this is a driver's car, the driving position is low down but the seats hold the driver and front seat passenger firmly and the dashboard offers a wraparound feeling, as if piloting a plane. Even at speed, the cabin is a quiet and pleasant place to be, it’s also stable and responsive at high speed. Handling is also boosted with a range of safety features including active stability management, eight airbags with some models coming with four-wheel-drive to boost traction.
The Panamera’s boot is not very large though there is, as one would expect, a long list of equipment. Standard kit includes leather upholstery, alloy wheels, parking sensors, climate control, LED running lights and cruise control.
Essentially, the Porsche Panamera offers luxury and a great driving experience while carrying for adults in comfort.
