We can't image anyone in the States overdriving the Panamera's stoppers.

Neither the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) nor the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) have crash-tested the Panamera. It's not out of the ordinary for expensive luxury cars to be left out of testing.

Despite the lack of official data, Porsche's proven chassis engineering, together with the strong base safety equipment of the Panamera, should inspire confidence in safety-conscious buyers. Dual front, side, knee, and side-curtain airbags, and an active pop-up hood for pedestrian protection are all standard. Rear-seat side airbags are available.

Active safety features in the Panamera might come up a bit short of the Mercedes-Benz S Class or BMW 7-Series, but still offer Porsche's advanced traction and stability control systems, a rear-view camera, and hill-start control.

Available or standard all-wheel drive also improves safety in adverse road conditions, while Porsche's Torque Vectoring system can help keep the car on its intended path even when grip is low--or during emergency maneuvers.

Conclusion

The 2013 Porsche Panamera's strong set of standard and available safety features should give confidence to safety-conscious buyers.

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.
