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.

At first glance, little appears to set the facelifted Panamera apart from its predecessor.

The 2014 Porsche Panamera adds some edge to its look, but many will still find the rear three-quarters view of the car, and the extended roofline on Executive models, ungainly. If you can get past the roofline, however, or at least come to terms with it, the rest of the Panamera's details work.

The most noticeable changes for the 2014 update are at the nose, where wider air intakes and a more sharply radiused power dome on the hood give greater definition and a fresh feel to the Panamera's shape. At the rear, the bumper and diffuser have been re-worked to provide a greater sense of width, visually helping to flatten the slightly humped hatch area.

Inside, the Panamera's style is pure modern Porsche: if you don't like buttons, you won't like this. If you do, however, the layout is clean and highly functional, placing a lot of options that are buried in touchscreen menus in competitors at a single press of the finger in the Panamera.

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.
