The market for large luxury sedans is chock-full of interesting choices to choose from. Making the choice between a Porsche Panamera and a Mercedes S 500 might not be as difficult as you would think. Most car brands tend to focus on one or two main aspects like performance, technology, and style. None of these brands can do it quite like Porsche can.


Most importantly, a luxury vehicle of any make needs to have performance and athleticism. When it comes to Porsche, those two factors are never a problem. A dynamic driving experience is always achieved with the 2022 Porsche Panamera due to its poised ride and sophisticated handling. The car tops most lists online thanks to its powerful engine options and an upgraded interior that is as luxurious as it is comfortable.


As with all luxury sedans, performance is only part of the equation, as they need to be able to carry decent cargo as much as they need to be able to cut corners. Duncan Brady from MotorTrend says “With the Panamera’s hatchback rear end, the big Porsche can swallow more stuff than your average large luxury sedan. The cargo area in the standard Panamera measures 17.6 cubic feet behind the rear bench and 47.3 cubic feet with the seats folded down. That latter figure swells to 52.6 cubes in the Panamera Executive.”


Overall, the Porsche Panamera checks all the boxes needed to be considered a great luxury vehicle. Scott Oldham of Car and Driver says “Luckily, the 2022 Panamera sedan couples Porsche’s fun-to-drive attitude with a four-door body and a premium cabin to create a more balanced option for those who need space for kids and cargo. With agile handling and a smooth ride, especially when equipped with the optional adjustable air suspension, the 2022 Panamera is a thrill to drive.”
