If you’re after a sharper-driving alternative to big luxury estates and plug-in hybrids, the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo is well worth considering. It doesn’t have the biggest boot around, but it’s still quite practical and there’s loads of rear seat space. There’s certainly no lack of performance and it handles very well for such a big car. However, an AMG E63S Estate provides a better blend of space and pace.

This is the base mode for the Sport Turismo and comes with a reasonable amount of standard equipment but nothing out of the ordinary at this price level. You get 19in alloy wheels, eight-way powered front seats, LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, leather seats, cruise control, power-folding door mirrors, wireless phone charging, a 10-speaker/ 150-watt stereo, Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto, a powered tailgate, adaptive suspension, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera and heated front seats. You’ll need to pay for extras such as privacy glass, lumbar adjustment and keyless entry.

The 326bhp 2.9-litre turbocharged V6 petrol in the entry-level 4 is pokey (0-62mph in 5.3sec) but we suspect keen drivers will prefer the 'proper' performance and rev-hungry nature of the 434bhp 4S.
