Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front seat occupants won’t have any complaints regarding space, with both head and leg room more than adequate for six-footers and above.

Storage space is good, too. You get a decent central cubby and a few other nooks and crannies dotted around for your odds and ends. The door bins can also swallow a fair amount of clutter or a drinks bottle. Those in the back get a central armrest, storage between the seats and reasonable-size door bins.

Is there enough space for the rear seat passengers, though? Yes, a surprising amount as it happens. While there are only two rear seats, the head and leg room they offer is better than that in the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door Coupé and knocks the Aston Martin Rapide S’s cramped rear for six. Indeed, a couple of six-foot-plus adults can sit quite contentedly behind taller adults in the front, and should you have legs like telegraph poles, there’s a longer-wheelbase Executive model available. Electrically adjustable rear seats are an option, but the rear seats are really supportive and comfortable even without these.

The boot is big enough to swallow four carry-on suitcases. That’s nowhere near the seven that you can fit on board the GT 4-door Coupé, but the Panamera’s wide-opening powered tailgate lets you get any bulky items inside with ease.
