2014 Porsche Panamera Styling

7.0
Styling
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.

Updates for 2014 make the Porsche Panamera's controversial look more palatable, and the interior is undeniably beautiful.
