2021 Porsche Panamera vs. 2021 Audi A6

The 2021 Porsche Panamera has gotten car buyers excited for plenty of reasons. One is the fact that the high-end interior matches its sporty exterior. Another is its powerful engine setup. That generous seating space inside will make every trip comfortable for its passengers.

The 2021 Audi A6 is an attractive ride as well. It is refined and has an opulent cabin to boast of. Let us see if it topples down the Panamera.

Design & Style

That sporty exterior is the first thing you will notice once you see the Porsche Panamera. Getting in and out of the ride is easier with its large doors too. The ride has a well-polished interior with materials like aluminum and wood highlighting its soft-touch surfaces. There can either be four or five seats depending on whether you go for the wagon, hatchback, or Executive body style. All seats are well-bolstered for everybody’s comfort.

The Audi A6, on the other hand, can accommodate up to five passengers inside it. The luxury ride has eight-way power adjustments and leather upholstery as a standard. The trunk space is not that great though. The ride is luxurious as it uses soft touch surfaces as well as other elegant trimmings to accentuate the cabin.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Porsche Panamera relies on a 12.3-inch touch screen to display crisp graphics and respond to user inputs. Supporting smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay, it also has Wi-Fi hot spot, HDR radio and 10 speakers on top of other standard features. Driver aids such as lane keep assist, road sign recognition and lane departure warning are combined with front and rear parking sensors, as well as the rearview camera.

The 2021 A6, meanwhile, uses two touch screens for its MMI infotainment system. Since these screens hold different functions, it can be overwhelming to mesmerize which screen does this and does that. Other standard technologies for the vehicle are tri-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, and panoramic sunroof. Driver aids include Audi Pre Sense Front and Audi Pre Sense Basic.


The 2021 Porsche Panamera’s base variant can carry up to a maximum of 325 horsepower with its twin-turbo V6 setup. The Turbo S that carries a V8 is powerful enough to do the work of 689 horses. There are other engine variants in between, all of them are reliable in any driving condition. The A6 gets a total of 335 horsepower only.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Porsche Panamera is one ride that you can proudly bring home to your family, considering all its amenities and powerful engines. The 2021 Audi A6 simply lags behind, despite pulling an effort to impress.
