Expert Quotes:

The cupholders remain subpar, however, and the center console and map pockets do not provide enough storage space.
Detroit Free Press

Highway touring in the Panamera gives every passenger a special feeling, much like flying in a private jet, but quieter and at much lower altitudes.
Edmunds

Overall, this is an interior worthy of what you'll pay.
Edmunds' Inside Line

Buttons serve up two sport-tune settings for the throttle, transmission, shocks, optional air springs, and stability control, and more buttons give a la carte control to each system.
Car and Driver

The Panamera lives to impress back-seat passengers.
Automobile Magazine

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.

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.

Conclusion

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.

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.
