2018 Porsche Panamera vs. 2018 Jaguar XF

Jaguar and Porsche vehicles are certainly renowned for their unique exterior style and designing. If you are considering either of the 2018 Jaguar XF and the 2018 Porsche Panamera, it can be tough to pick one. But if you are looking for a wealth of luxury features, Porsche Panamera should be the ultimate choice. This comparison will give you a good idea.

Design & Style

As mentioned earlier, the exteriors are just top-notch for both the models. The 2018 Jaguar XF provides convenient seating for 5 people, and it comes with a standard synthetic leather upholstery. Cabin size is just about average just like other Sedan models, and adults can ride easily in both rows of seating.

Porsche Panamera is a step ahead with a 4-seater sedan that offers plenty of acreage to stretch out, making life easy for the people onboard. You get that lavish feeling the moment you jump inside the vehicle made of quality materials.

Technology & Safety

In terms of technology, the 2018 Jaguar XF is quite disappointing with confusing menus, poor response and glitchy functions of the InControl Touch System. However, the 8-inch touch screen has excellent graphics and numerous buttons give you easy access to climate settings. You can opt for upgrades such as adaptive cruise control, automatic climate control and digital surround sound system.

Porsche Panamera has a lot to boast of, in terms of technology. It is equipped with Porsche Communication Management interface, alongside navigation system, Apple CarPlay and Wi-Fi hotspot. In addition to a rearview camera, there are parking sensors as well.


Performance is an important parameter to consider when purchasing a car. The 2018 Jaguar XF offers you a choice of 4 engines, all of them being supercharged or turbocharged. The smaller of the four has better fuel efficiency, but it is not as powerful as a V6 engine. The most powerful in the lineup is a V6 380 HP powertrain, which is quite less compared to the 550-HP V8 turbo engine of Porsche Panamera. The base model comes with turbocharged V6 engine delivering 330 HP. It delivers sufficient power to suit all sorts of driving situations.

The Bottom Line

Both Audi and Porsche have a modern interior with a sophisticated design, but Panamera has plenty of options when it comes to engine specifications. It is also one of the best among its rivals, in terms of technology. So if you are looking to opt for a brand that offers a complete package that needs no upgrading at an additional cost, you are good to go with the 2018 Porsche Panamera
