Porsche has conceived its latest hybrid to offer the choice between four different driving modes: E-Power, Hybrid, E-Charge and Sport.
Auto Week

The Panamera has never been short on equipment, and for 2014, Porsche adds some new features that should find warm welcome with tech-savvy drivers.

A new Porsche Car Connect app, standard on Panamera S E-Hybrid models and available on all others, enables remote access to the car in three ways: Remote Services, which offers information on the car; Porsche Vehicle Tracking; and hybrid-specific E-Mobility Services; as well as other remote vehicle functions.

Camera and radar-based features added for 2014 include lane departure warning and Surround View cameras (both optional). Adaptive cruise control with Porsche Active Safe is also available, helping keep a proper following distance during cruising and aiding braking in emergency situations.

Bi-xenon headlights are standard on all models, with optional LED headlights introduced for 2014. The Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus comes with the LED headlights, adapting to oncoming traffic to keep from blinding other drivers. Four-point daytime running lights are also included with the LED package.

Inside the Panamera, new colors and two-tone combinations are available for 2014, and a new Executive long-wheelbase option is added for Panamera 4S and Turbo models. The Executive extends the wheelbase by 5.9 inches, growing leg room by 4.7 inches while increasing the recline angle of the electronically adjustable rear seat. Three-stage heated and ventilated seats are standard, with front and rear controls, matching four-zone automatic climate control for individual comfort.

An available Burmester sound system is a smart upgrade, delivering crisp, clear audio--a noticeable upgrade over the standard system. The Sport Chrono package adds performance-focused features as well as a dash-mounted multi-function timer/clock.

A wide range of available exterior and interior colors and combinations are available, as well as wood, aluminum, and carbon fiber trim elements. In fact, the Panamera is a highly configurable car; the only caveat is to be wary of the bottom line as you tick boxes--the price can  grow more quickly than you might expect.

Conclusion

With new camera- and radar-based safety features and upgraded rear-seat equipment in Executive models, the 2014 Panamera takes a step closer to its full-size luxury rivals.

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.
