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 ‘base’ Panamera comes with a reasonable amount of standard equipment but nothing out of the ordinary at this price level. Yes, you get alloy wheels, LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, partial leather seats, cruise control and heated front seats, but you’ll need to pay for extras such as privacy glass, a decent stereo, the aforementioned adjustable lumbar support 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.
