2020 Porsche Panamera Review

The legendary Porsche 911 remains one of the best sports cars ever built. But what do you do if you need to transport more than one passenger? Enter the 2020 Porsche Panamera, a front-engine sport luxury sedan with the spirit of the 911.

The Panamera lineup is extraordinarily deep, with three body styles and seven trim levels to choose from. Prices also have a wide range, with a top-level Turbo S E-Hybrid costing twice as much as a base Panamera. Performance between these models understandably increases with price too. No matter which model you have an eye on, rest assured that you'll be getting one of the best luxury sedans with the kind of sporty performance that justifies the Porsche badge.

Edmunds’ Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team

Our verdict

8.0 / 10
Besides delivering all of the refinement you expect of premium luxury sedans, the Porsche Panamera is shockingly practical and capable. It packs performance on par with traditional sports cars, but with usable passenger and cargo hauling space. That's especially the case if you opt for the Sport Turismo model.

How does it drive?

9.0
No car this big and heavy has any business performing on this level. It's mind-boggling how capable the Panamera 4S — the Panamera we tested — is on a winding road. Anyone who claims it's not a "real" Porsche clearly hasn't driven one. And this is just a single step up from the base model in a very deep lineup.

The Panamera 4S is among the quickest in its class, reaching 60 mph in only 3.9 seconds. Power is breathtaking, and the shifts are so smooth they're almost imperceptible. Engaging launch control will fulfill your adolescent racer dreams, and the V6 sounds great too. Handling is precise in all situations, and you quickly forget that it's a 4,400-pound luxury sedan. It feels much lighter and smaller.

How comfortable is it?

8.5
There are some concessions made in exchange for the Panamera's performance, but they can easily be ignored given its capability. The climate control interface is fussier than it needs to be, and suspension tuning is on the stiff side. But these trade-offs don't come remotely close to being deal-breakers.

Whether you're short or tall, the range of seat adjustments will accommodate you. The padding is thin, but the front seats are so well shaped that all-day comfort is guaranteed. The Panamera 4S doesn't ride quite as smoothly as its less athletic rivals, but it is still exceptionally comfortable. Wind noise on the highway is absent, and the engine is well muffled when you're cruising.

How’s the interior?

8.0
The Panamera's controls aren't easy to use and can be a source of driver distraction. Otherwise, the cabin is as luxurious, modern and refined as that of any of its contemporaries. This generation Panamera forgoes the glut of traditional buttons of its predecessor, but using their replacement — capacitive touch buttons — can take the driver's attention away from the road. The gear selector also takes some getting used to.

Even though you get a sporty, wraparound feeling from the cockpit, the Panamera is still very spacious. The rear seats will accommodate 6-footers, but we suggest getting the long-wheelbase version if you're going to frequently have adults in the back seat.

How’s the tech?

7.0
The Panamera's infotainment system isn't as easy to use as rival systems. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration is standard thankfully, and you can use either as an alternative to Porsche's system. The touchscreen is responsive and quick, but the steering wheel button that's supposedly customizable for multiple functions did not work all that well in our testing. We also experienced occasional Apple CarPlay crashes and non-operation.

The Panamera's advanced driver safety features are well tuned. In our testing they didn't produce any false alarms. The traffic-adaptive cruise control's braking and accelerating were also smooth.

How’s the storage?

7.0
The Panamera is technically a hatchback, but it doesn't reap as big an advantage as is usually associated with that body style. With 17.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, room in the Panamera is generous on paper. In practice, the trunk is shallow and the high liftover height is an impediment. The lack of remote seatback releases also deducts points.

The Sport Turismo's cargo space is only marginally bigger, but its lower liftover height and upright hatch allow easier loading of bulky items. The door pockets, bins and glovebox are all on the small side, leaving you limited options for your personal effects.

How economical is it?

8.0
The EPA estimates fuel economy for the 4S at 21 mpg combined (21 city/28 highway), which is comparable to figures from other, albeit far less sporty, luxury sedans. On our mixed-driving evaluation route, we achieved 26.4 mpg with our 4S test car, but it was a difficult exercise in restraint.

Is it a good value?

7.5
The Porsche Panamera 4S delivers an unusual amount of performance for the money. While we wouldn't consider it a bargain, it certainly piques our interest. Interior materials are befitting a car of this class and price, and there's sturdy construction underneath.

Wildcard

9.0
The Panamera 4S is one of the few cars that have come our way that have astounded us in a number of ways. Whether or not performance is your thing, drivers of any stripe will appreciate its sure-footedness and authoritative acceleration. This is one of the better cars at any price.

With the latest redesign, the Panamera is no longer the ugly duckling that we'd forgive because it drives so well. It now has the looks to complement its performance. It's sleek, sporty, modern, refined, and truly the complete package.

Which Panamera does Edmunds recommend?

The 2020 Porsche Panamera has a deep lineup, making it difficult to choose the right one to suit your personal preferences. For most drivers, the Panamera 4S gets our recommendation. It has plenty of power to entertain even seasoned sports car drivers and the added assurance of all-wheel drive.

2020 Porsche Panamera models

The 2020 Porsche Panamera is offered in three body styles. The regular Panamera has a long, tapered rear cargo hatch, while the Sport Turismo comes with a more upright rear hatch like a station wagon. The Executive sticks with the standard Panamera hatch but grows in length between the front and rear axles (commonly referred to as the long wheelbase) to provide more space to rear passengers.

Several trim levels are available, but not in every body style: the base Panamera, Panamera 4, Panamera 4S, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, Panamera GTS, Panamera Turbo and Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. These models distinguish themselves with different engines and features. For 2020, a new 10 Years Edition commemorates a decade of Panamera production.

Base Panamera
Standard feature highlights include:

  • A 330-horsepower turbocharged 3.0-liter V6
  • Porsche Active Suspension Management (adaptive suspension or PASM), which allows you to choose a softer, more comfortable suspension setting or a stiffer setting for more sporty handling
  • A panoramic sunroof
  • A power hatchback liftgate
  • A wide-view 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system including a navigation system

Panamera 4
Has the above but with all-wheel drive

Panamera 4S
Keeps the all-wheel-drive powertrain and adds:

  • A 440-hp turbocharged 2.9-liter V6

Panamera 4 E-Hybrid
A plug-in hybrid variant that comes with:

  • The 2.9-liter engine along with an electric motor and a 14.1-kWh lithium-ion battery for a combined 462 hp
  • About 30 miles of all-electric driving range on a full charge
  • An air suspension that can automatically alter the Panamera's ride height

Panamera GTS
Ups the performance quotient and includes:

  • A 453-hp 4.0-liter turbocharged V8
  • The Sport Chrono package that adds performance-enhancing features
  • An air suspension with a lower ride height
  • Unique sporty styling touches
  • Adaptive 18-way power seats with faux suede trim

Panamera Turbo
More performance and features, such as:

  • A 550-hp turbocharged 4.0-liter V8
  • Simulated-suede interior trim inserts
  • Full leather upholstery
  • Heated rear seats

Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid
A combination of the Turbo and E-Hybrid that provides:

  • Hybrid components and turbo V8 for a combined output of 677 hp
  • Ceramic-composite brakes for ultimate stopping power
  • The Sport Chrono package
  • A second air-conditioning system to cool the car while it's parked

Panamera 10 Years Edition
A version of the base Panamera, Panamera 4 and E-Hybrid with:

  • Unique white gold metallic badging inside and out
  • A few extra features that would otherwise be optional

The Panamera is also available with a wide range of additional technology, safety and customization-oriented features.

    Safety

    Our experts’ favorite Panamera safety features:

    Lane Departure Warning and Intervention
    Warns the driver if he or she exits a lane with another car in the blind spot and even applies minor steering corrections.
    Forward Collision Warning
    Alerts the driver when a front collision is imminent. Automatic emergency braking also applies the brakes, depending on severity.
    Adaptive Cruise Control
    Provides the driver with a set speed while maintaining a set distance behind the car in front, allowing for a safe space between cars.

    Porsche Panamera vs. the competition

    Porsche Panamera vs. Audi S7

    The Audi S7 is a sportier version of the A7. The Panamera and the Audi S7 share many similarities, not least of which is that they're both built under the same Volkswagen Group parent company. They both have a sleek "fastback" rear hatch and stirring performance. The Panamera, though, has the S7 beat when it comes to rear-seat headroom and overall performance.

    Compare Porsche Panamera & Audi S7 features

    Porsche Panamera vs. BMW M5

    The BMW M5 can be considered a bargain against the Panamera if you really try. The M5 has 600-plus horsepower, which places it above the Panamera Turbo. The kicker is, the M5 starts around $100,000 while the Panamera Turbo starts above $150,000. If that wasn't enough, you get more standard features with the BMW, and it has the ability to switch between all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive.

    Compare Porsche Panamera & BMW M5 features

    Porsche Panamera vs. Mercedes-Benz AMG GT

    In the same vein as how the Panamera can loosely be considered a four-door version of the Porsche 911 coupe, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT sedan can be thought of as the four-door version of the AMG GT coupe. Both offer an excess of power and impressive cornering abilities. The prices for either are also impressively high, especially when options are added.

    Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
