The 2021 Audi A8, on the other hand, lags some points behind the Panamera in the super luxury car class. It has an exquisite cabin and promises a comfortable ride to users. There are also powerful optional engines on the list. The small trunk and poor fuel economy makes it lose to its Porsche counterpart.

Design & Style

The 2021 Panamera is actually described as a four-door version of its sports car, the Porsche 911. This has plenty of cargo space, enough to accommodate belongings of its passengers who will go out on a short weekend vacation out of town. This comes in three body style variations namely the hatchback, wagon, and Executive. It is simple to look at but looking closer, you will notice how its high-end materials like wood, soft-touch plastic, leather, and aluminum highlight its cabin.

Also offering a classy and comfy interior, the 2021 Audi A8 is praised for its soft and supple leather finish. It can seat up to five people with an optional setup where the capacity can drop to four. It has a small cargo space though, making it lag some points behind the Panamera.
