2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class VS 2018 Porsche Panamera
2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2018 Porsche Panamera: Performance
The 2018 Porsche Panamera may be a luxury car first, but it doesn’t skimp on performance. It offers several engines ready to rocket you down the road at the touch of the gas pedal, and they’re all mated to a smooth-shifting automatic transmission. The Panamera’s base engine is a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 with 330 horsepower and a top speed of 164 mph. It’s mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard in the Panamera, but all trims above the base level come with all-wheel drive. Sharp steering and plenty of road grip let you tackle corners aggressively, but the agility doesn’t come at the expense of ride quality.
2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2018 Porsche Panamera: Feature Comparison
The 2018 Porsche Panamera’s cabin looks sleek, stylish, and uncluttered. Nearly every surface is covered in soft-touch materials, and both rows of seats are roomy and comfortable. Standard active safety features include a rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors. Standard features in the Panamera include dual-zone automatic climate control, an in-cabin air filter, *Bluetooth®, a 10-speaker audio system, satellite radio, a USB port, and a touch-screen infotainment system with the Porsche Communication Management interface, navigation, Apple CarPlay, and a Wi-Fi hot spot. The Panamera’s interior has a sleek look, and there aren’t many buttons cluttering the dash. The touch-screen infotainment system controls almost everything, and there’s another screen in the rear for back-seat passengers. The interface is intuitive, but navigating through the menus can be tedious.
2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2018 Porsche Panamera: Overall Comparison
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class goes toe-to-toe with the 2018 Porsche Panamera, as these are two of the finest cars you can buy. Like the Panamera, the S-Class has a lineup of strong engines, a plush ride, and one of the most extravagant interiors of any car on the market. It offers an embarrassing number of luxury and convenience features, and you could easily fall asleep on the seats. The hatchback Panamera has more overall cargo space, but the S-Class is available in coupe and convertible body styles in addition to the standard sedan.
