2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Review
About the 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo
New for 2018, Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo is the exciting continuation of the Panamera model line. Characterized by superior sportiness, eye-catching design, and excellent day-to-day usability, Panamera Sport Turismo stands out in its own right. Known for achieving the perfect balance between career, family, leisure, and driving pleasure, Porsche Panamera models never compromise. The new Panamera Sport Turismo features several distinctive highlights which differentiate it from other Panamera models.
Porsche Panamera Features
The standard 4+1 seating configuration in the Panamera Sport Turismo allows for generous interior seating space. Cargo capacity is generous with nearly 50 cubic feet of storage space along with a low 24.8 inch loading level allows for easy access. The 40/20/40 rear split folding seats can be lowered to accommodate additional cargo. A large programmable powered rear tailgate makes carrying luggage effortless.
Distinctive design characteristics of the Panamera Sport Turismo include a redesigned raised roofline, large rear window, LED headlights and taillights, and available twin exhaust tailpipes. An adaptive rear roof spoiler extends to keep Panamera Sport Turismo planted at high speeds, increase aerodynamic efficiency, and contributes to the sport-inspired exterior design. Signature Porsche design cues give the Panamera Sport Turismo an athletic stance.
Maximum performance comes from the available V6 Turbo, V6 biturbo, or V8 biturbo engine connected to the 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission for lightning fast acceleration. Thermal management, vehicle electrical system recuperation, active cooling air flaps, and an Auto Start Stop with coasting function each help ensure maximum efficiency for Panamera Sport Turismo. The new, integrated Porsche 4D Chassis Control system synchronizes all chassis systems in real time to create an optimized driving experience.
Driver Focused Interior
Panamera Sport Turismo features an interior that emphasizes sports car ergonomics without sacrificing on comfort. Porsche Advanced Cockpit has a redesigned glass-look center console featuring a high-resolution 12-inch touchscreen and touch-sensitive buttons. The new Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment provides a cinema experience for the second row with fully integrated and networked Infotainment system on two separate 10-inch touchscreens.
