2013 Porsche Panamera Comfort & Quality

9.0
Comfort & Quality
The cabin of the 2013 Porsche Panamera is a relatively roomy and comfortable place to be. It's also very nicely finished, with quality materials.

The rear seats in particular shine, as there's ample leg room, slightly more hip room than in the front, and plenty of head room, too, thanks in part to the oddly-shaped roof line. The result is an airiness in the back seat that gives a feeling of real executive luxury. Up front, it's no penalty box, however, with comfortable and roomy seats.

Behind the rear seats, there's a surprising amount of space, especially once the rear seats are folded down. The area makes very good use of the Panamera's fastback-sedan profile.

The 2013 Porsche Panamera's back seat is impressively spacious, there's ample luggage space, and the front seats offer a relaxes sports car feel.

Ride quality is very good, thanks in part to the PASM and PDCC systems explained in more detail in the Performance section of this review, which adapt to the road surface to deliver a balance of comfort and handling.

For those with an eye on a sportily-outfitted Panamera, an optional three-spoke steering wheel pushes the feel of the cockpit a bit closer to the 911's, but retains the Panamera's useful and straightforward control layout.
