2021 Porsche Panamera vs. 2021 Audi A7

The 2021 Porsche Panamera is a super luxury car that is praised for its comfortable, and high-end interior. It has a powerful engine lineup too.

The 2021 Audi A7 is gifted with various engine choices, and has a spacious cabin and cargo area. Expect the addition of the RS 7 variant to its list of trims.

Design & Style

The 2021 Panamera is a four-door version of the brand’s formidable sports car, the Porsche 911. This offers abundance in terms of cargo space, ready to accommodate belongings of its passengers. It has three body styles namely the hatchback, wagon, and Executive type. It is simple to yet its high-end materials like wood, soft-touch plastic, leather, and aluminum make its cabin a stand out.

A family of five will find solace in the Audi A7. Leather upholstery as well as heated front seats are standard offerings for its interior design. There are some areas that need some adjustment, most especially the rear area. Wood, metal, leather, and soft-touch plastics adorn the cabin.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Porsche Panamera has an infotainment system that is paired with a 12.3-inch touch screen. This displays crisp graphics and easily responds to user inputs. The entire layout on the dash is modern and sleek, and is capable of handling functions for Apple CarPlay, HD and satellite radios, 10-speaker stereo, three USB ports, and a Wi-Fi hot spot. Among its standard safety features are the rearview camera, road sign recognition, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and front and rear parking sensors.

The 2021 Audi A7 carries a dual touch screen for its infotainment system. The upper screen measures 8.8 inches while the lower one is 8.6 inches in size. The larger screen takes on the role of accessing Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, radio, and navigation. The smaller one is left for making vehicle and climate control adjustments. The combination is confusing on the part of the user. Automatic high-beam headlights, forward collision warning, rearview camera, lane departure warning, front and rear parking sensors, and automatic emergency braking, are its safety aids.


The 2021 Porsche Panamera has a base trim with a twin-turbo V6 configuration allowing it to produce up to 325 horsepower. The strongest among all seven engine options is found under the hood of the Turbo S-E Hybrid which can produce up to a total of 689 horsepower.
