The 2013 Porsche Panamera S Hybrid is surprisingly efficient for its performance and size, but most of the range won't be winning any green awards.

While it's no gas mileage super-saver, the 2013 Porsche Panamera does fairly well on fuel for its large, high-performance, luxury-sedan nature.

The base V-6 Panamera, for example, scores 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway in EPA testing. The Panamera S Hybrid is the best in terms of gas mileage in the lineup, at 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. The worst is the Panamera Turbo S at 15 mpg city and 23 mpg highway.

Taken in the context of the horsepower outputs of each (the base car makes 300 horsepower, the Hybrid 380 hp, and the Turbo S 550 hp) those figures are actually quite impressive--though, aside from the hybrid, none are likely to be applauded for their gas mileage.

Conclusion

The 2013 Porsche Panamera S Hybrid is surprisingly efficient for its performance and size, but most of the range won't be winning any green awards.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
