2013 Porsche Panamera (V-6): 18/27 mpg city/highway; Panamera 4 (V-6): 18/26 mpg city/highway

The expansive Porsche Panamera powertrain range means there's an option for most everyone, but it also means there are many small gradations to the gas mileage you'll get--and several rather large ones, too.

The base Panamera uses a V-6 engine to score 18 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined per the EPA. The somehwat sportier Panamera S scores 17/27/21 mpg. With all-wheel drive, the Panamera 4 rates 18/27/22 mpg. The higher-performance Panamera 4S downsizes the V-6 and adds a turbo to yield EPA ratings of 17/27/21 mpg, while the long-wheelbase Panamera 4S Executive scores just slightly lower at 17/26/20 mpg.

Moving up to the driver's choice, the Panamera GTS scores 16 mpg city, 24 mpg highway, and 19 mpg combined. The high-tech Panamera S-E Hybrid is rated two ways: with electric-only and gasoline-hybrid mode combined, it scores 50 mpg combined city/highway; in gasoline-only mode, it rates a combined score of 25 mpg.

The high-performance Panamera Turbo dips only slightly in EPA ratings in comparison to its non-hybrid counterparts, at 15 mpg city, 24 mpg highway, and 18 mpg combined. Kicking up the performance to Panamera Turbo S levels yields the same 15/24/18 mpg gas mileage, as does opting for the long-wheelbase version of the Panamera Turbo S.

Taken in the full context of its performance, size, and equipment level, the Panamera is not precisely efficient, but it's not the worst offender at the pump, either.


The Porsche Panamera range manages a fair balance between efficiency and performance, but gas misers will want to investigate the S E-Hybrid.

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.
