2021 Porsche Panamera vs. 2021 Lexus LS

The 2021 Porsche Panamera promised poised handling. Because of this, it is indeed one of the best choices when it comes to the line of super luxury cars out there. Buyers also have the option to choose from its three powerful engines.

The 2021 Lexus LS, on the other hand, seems to impress in terms of tis cabin design. It is praised for having that brisk acceleration that is perfect for a bumpy ride. Now coming standard for the ride is its Android Auto smartphone integration.

Design & Style

The Porsche Panamera appeals to car buyers because of its high-end cabin. This has combined some of the softest, yet sturdiest materials that make the ride truly luxurious in all levels. This makes it look modern and elegant outside, matching its sporty and rugged exterior. It comes in different seating configurations ranging from four- to five-passenger capacities. It also has a large trunk area that expands to 50 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded.

The 2021 LS has a five-seating configuration which offers spacious seating arrangements in front. The driver and his co-pilot have the privilege to enjoy 16 standard power adjustments in its heated and ventilated seats. The back seats are best left to children, though. It has an excellent build quality with real wood accents and plush leathers adorning the cabin, but when compared to the Panamera, it does not really create any spark.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Porsche Panamera is outfitted with a 12.3-inch touch screen display. This responds quickly to any user input. It also displays clear colorful graphics to make it easier for users to see what is going on its screen. It has several buttons and knobs that make accessing to other features like Apple CarPlay integration, and Wi-Fi hot spot a whole lot easier. Safety wise, the ride has road sign recognition, rearview camera, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and front and rear parking sensors.

The LS, on the other hand, has a 12.3-inch infotainment system that is just within reach. It carries a Remote Touchpad that is deemed useless for the interface since it has an outdated software. It has other features like Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, voice recognition, USB ports, satellite and HD radios, and 12 speakers. Safety features for the ride include adaptive headlights, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and pedestrian and cyclist detection.


The 2021 Porsche Panamera has a lot of heart-stopping engine options. In fact, its twin-turbo V6 base engine naturally aspirates 325 horsepower. The most powerful engine produces up to 689 horsepower. All of these engines allow the ride to run smoothly even on bumpy roads.

Inside the LS, there is a base engine with a 416-horsepower yield. This has a hybrid model that is sluggish at 354 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Porsche Panamera is one of those rides that oozes charm and matches it with power, and reliable technologies. It is for these reasons that the LS is defeated.
