Face facts – you'll need a large bank balance to drive a Panamera, although the V6 diesel version is comfortably the cheapest model to buy and run. Even so, any Panamera costs a bomb to buy, and you won't get a discount. It's no better as a company car – high emissions and a high price mean ridiculous bills. Yes, the hybrid has low emissions and good economy, but they're cancelled out by the high list price.
Porsche Panamera Saloon quality & reliability
The Panamera's materials look absolutely gorgeous, giving the cabin a real air of quality. The fit and finish are good, too. Porsche usually ranks pretty highly in the JD Power customer satisfaction survey, and many of the Panamera's parts have been tried and tested on the Cayenne 4x4.
Porsche Panamera Saloon safety & security
All Panameras come with a whole host of driver aids, including stability control, to keep all that power in check. If the worst does happen, there are no fewer than eight airbags to minimise injuries, and 10 in the Turbo. On the security front, all Panameras come with a sophisticated vehicle-tracking system.
