5 reasons to buy the 2017 Porsche Panamera

1. Room for people and packages 

When you think of a sports car, ample cabin space isn't usually on your mind. However, the 2017 Porsche Panamera has curvy looks as well as four doors and a backseat to accommodate four passengers comfortably. In the rear, you'll find a spacious 17.4 cu-ft hatchback-style trunk to stow away everything from golf clubs to the weekly grocery stock-up. Need more room for luggage on your couple's getaway weekends? Fold the rear seats to enjoy 46 cu-ft of cargo room. 

 2. Many options to suit you 

The 2017 Porsche Panamera is not a one-size-fits-all sports car. When launching this first year of the second-generation (2017-2020) design, the German automaker impressed with eight trim packages, 15 exterior color options, and multiple engine choices. You can get behind a turbocharged V6, a twin-turbo V6, or a twin-turbo V8. Live a more eco-conscious lifestyle? A hybrid swap for the S-trims is available and the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid combo features a V8 and electric motor combo. 

3. Impressive driving performance 

Don't let the sedan body shape fool you. The 2017 Porsche Panamera handles every bit like a sports car on the road. As you navigate highway merging lanes and busy city streets, you'll notice a smooth ride, quick acceleration, easy hill climbing, and grippy cornering for the ultimate in driver control. When it comes to winter weather driving, the Hybrid and Turbo models come standard with all-wheel drive to help navigate snowy streets. Base, 4, and S models feature rear-wheel drive, with optional all-wheel drive. 

4. Luxurious standard features 

The Porsche brand truly flaunts its opulence when you discover some of the standard features in the 2017 Panamera. These include a refrigerated glovebox (perfect for traveling with temperature-sensitive medications or perishable snacks), power-controlled heated front seats with leather trim, a rearview camera, a panoramic sunroof, and dual-zone climate functions to keep front and backseat riders cozy. This car is ready to impress, whether you're shuttling business clients around or carpooling friends on weekend adventures. 

5. Updated in-cabin technology 

In 2017, Porsche gave the Panamera's tech stack a new look with fewer manual buttons and more modern touchscreen functionality. The stylish flatscreen is positioned in the center of the narrow, sporty console for a clean, minimalist look. Standard features include Apple CarPlay® connectivity, Bluetooth® connectivity, a navigation system, Wi-Fi hotspot availability, satellite radio option, and a USB port.

Tech lovers will also enjoy the bumpin' 10-speaker system and have the option to upgrade to a 21-speaker Burmester stereo.
