Expert Quotes:

Even the most devoted Panamera spotter will struggle to discern the V6 from its grander siblings.
Edmunds' Inside Line

Regardless of what descriptor you use, most of us seem to agree that it looks like the unlikely five-door offspring of an illicit tryst between a Porsche 928 and a Chrysler Crossfire.

We'd willingly trade room for top hats and designer luggage for a form that sincerely flatters the Panamera's far-reaching function.

Some find the Porsche Panamera's look ungainly, particularly at the convex rear roofline, but for those that can find the beauty in it--or at least ignore the parts they don't admire--the Panamera's use of super-sized classic design features works, for the most part.

Inside, the Panamera is much more conservatively styled, with a technical, orderly presentation that's only muddied by the button-busy center console. Materials used to execute the design are fantastic, and all of the surfaces feel as good as they look.

There are few differences in appearance between the trim lines, though a sharp eye will notice more aggressive and lower aerodynamics as you move up the range toward the Turbo S. The Panamera S Hybrid gets its own unique badges as well as aero tweaks, but even the base Panamera has the family look.

Conclusion

The 2013 Porsche Panamera's look is still controversial, but it has grown on us over the years--and the interior is beautiful.

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.
