2013 Porsche Panamera Features

8.0
Features
There's no denying the high-end materials or luxurious, spacious feel of the Panamera, but it does come up a bit short on advanced technology features in comparison to some of the alternatives in the large luxury sedan class.

You won't find accident-avoidance systems on the Panamera's options list, but you will find adaptive cruise control, adaptive sport seats with 18-way electric adjustment, a modern and capable infotainment system, dual-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic sunroof, Bluetooth, and more.

An almost necessary upgrade from the base stereo is the Burmester sound system, which delivers crisp, clear sound. Front and rear park assist can make it easier to position the large sedan in tight spaces, and for the performance-oriented, the Sport Chrono package adds a dash-mounted clock/timer/gauge as well as other speed-adding features.

The 2013 Porsche Panamera lacks some of the high-tech options of its rivals, but what it does have is well-executed and highly customizable.

Appearance and trim options include a wide range of materials, from wood and aluminum to carbon fiber. A range of wheel options, custom paint colors and types, and upholstery colors and materials are also available.

The only caveat with the highly configurable Panamera is its price: if you check too many options boxes, you'll find a Panamera Turbo S cresting the $200,000 mark rather quicker than you might expect.
