2019 Porsche Panamera Model Review


Explore the 2019 Porsche Panamera in Sewickley, PA

Since its launch in 2010, the Porsche Panamera has been the innovator in the Luxury Sport Sedan segment. The 2019 Porsche Panamera is everything you didn’t even know you wanted — maybe even always needed — in a luxury sedan.

Sportscar handling in a 4,000 pound full-size sedan? Burmester Audio Systems in an automobile? A Plug-in Hybrid Luxury Sedan?
The Porsche Panamera was the first to deliver each of these in a luxury sedan, and for 2019 it continues to redefine the segment. Maybe Car & Driver put it best when it called the Panamera “A Driver’s Car in a Segment that Prioritizes Passengers”, or maybe these other expert opinions better capture the contradiction that is the Porsche Panamera:

What the Critics Say

“If you’re looking for a thrilling driver’s car with a world-class pedigree, but you also need the convenience of four doors and a usable rear seat, the 2019 Porsche Panamera likely has a model for you. Be it the sleek hatchback or wagon-like Sport Turismo, the Panamera is as functional as it is fun.”Kelley Blue Book

“Amid some outstanding super luxury car competitors, the 2019 Porsche Panamera stands out as a true driver’s car. It’s thrilling to drive, relaxing to ride in, and it has more luggage room than most competitors.”U.S. News & World Report



What’s New for 2019

Keen shoppers will notice a few minor adjustments to the Porsche Panamera for the 2019 model year. First, the Panamera adds two new model variants: the GTS and GTS Sport Turismo. A new steering wheel design is now found on Panamera Turbo models. There’s also a newly-available head-up display option to help keep your eyes safely on the road while monitoring critical drive information. On E-Hybrid variants, the hybrid battery warranty has been extended to 8 years.

Panamera Engines

Panamera Engines

Without a doubt, the Panamera spoils you with engines. The base model is powered by a 3.0-liter turbo V6 producing 330 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque. The “S” models add a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 that increases horsepower to 440hp. The Panamera Turbo adds even more horsepower coming from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that pumps out 550 horsepower and 567 lb-ft of torque.

The Panamera E-Hybrid versions add horsepower and torque from an electric motor producing an additional 136 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque to either the base 3.0-liter V6 engine or — in the case of the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid — adding that additional power and torque to the same twin-turbo V8 found in the Panamera Turbo S – and increasing total horsepower to 680 horsepower.


Interior

The cabin offers an array of advanced technology. The Porsche Communication Management includes a 12-inch high-resolution touchscreen display and is your central control for audio, navigation, and communication. Porsche Connect maximizes your connectivity in the Panamera. It offers access to your favorite smartphone apps and allows you to set up navigation from your phone to the in-car display.

Passengers can enjoy a cinematic experience with the Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment that provides two 10-inch touchscreen displays and connection to Porsche Management Communication. When you drive an exhilarating sports car, you’ll not only want technology to match it, but long-distance comfort as well. The heated and ventilated leather seats with an available massage function will deliver just that.

2019 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo

Panamera Sport Turismo

The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo is the exciting continuation of the Panamera model line. Characterized by superior sportiness, eye-catching design, and excellent day-to-day usability, Panamera Sport Turismo stands out in its own right. Known for achieving the perfect balance between career, family, leisure, and driving pleasure, Porsche Panamera models never compromise. The standard 4+1 seating configuration in the Panamera Sport Turismo allows for generous interior seating space. Cargo capacity is generous with nearly 50 cubic feet of storage space along with a low 24.8-inch loading level allows for easy access. A redesigned raised roofline, large rear window, LED headlights and taillights, and available twin exhaust tailpipes help it stand out from the ordinary.
