  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
The second-generation Panamera preserves the original's sporty Porsche driving experience. This large, four-door luxury car hides beneath a coupe silhouette and retains its versatile hatchback configuration. New turbocharged engines provide plenty of motivation. An optional air suspension and advanced safety features are also available. The Panamera delivers performance and agility along with enough room for four adults to ride comfortably. All versions except for the base car come with all-wheel drive. The new interior features a large touch screen to interface with audio, navigation, and various settings. Also new is a confusing electronic shifter, which is surrounded by a piano-black surface that houses many flush buttons.

2010 Redesign Year
Porsche Panamera 2016
Porsche's four-door luxury car is a large, low-slung sedan with a coupe silhouette and a hatchback. Handling is agile, with excellent steering and a supple ride. Normally aspirated and turbocharged V8s are offered, along with a V6. All use a quick-shifting seven-speed automated manual that isn't as smooth at low speeds as a regular automatic. Our tested S model, with a 400-hp, 4.8-liter V8, returned strong performance and 20 mpg overall. Four adults fit in the snug but beautifully finished interior. Complicated and button-laden controls, tight access, and impaired visibility are demerits. A hybrid and a long-wheelbase Executive version arrived for 2014.
