2022 Porsche Panamera vs. 2022 Lexus LS

The 2022 Porsche Panamera now offers Android Auto, a welcome addition to its equipment, and a great start for a wireless version for its Apple CarPlay. It now offers wireless device charging as well, and promises great results with its various engine options.

In the case of the 2022 Lexus IS, expect that the V8 engine offers a lot of power too. It promises a long list of technologies, including standard driver aids as well.

Design & Style

The 2022 Panamera comes with great style and design, thanks to the use of high-quality materials and soft touch surfaces that highlight elements in the cabin area. Also added to that, you get to choose from four- or five-seating configurations, depending on the model that you have your eyes on, and on the needs of your family. There is plenty of room to spare at the back seats, thus you will feel comfortable regardless of the trim level you have your eyes on.

The IS 2022 edition is also one sturdy ride. This one offers soft-touch surfaces inside, yet despite that effort, it is notable that the cabin is dated when compared to its rivals, the Panamera included. It is also noticeable that one of those things that make it look old is the provision for a CD player on the dashboard. While it sits five people, it is best to put three kids at the back for added comfort during the trip.

Technology & Safety

The 2022 Panamera is gifted with a 12.3-inch touch screen display that supports functions for its infotainment configuration. This also has a wireless device charging capability, and a wireless version for the Apple CarPlay as standard. Other features worth taking note of are multiple USB ports, Wi-Fi hot spot, 10 speakers, and a navigation system, among others. Safety wise, it has traffic sign recognition, rearview camera, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and front and rear parking sensors for safety.

The 2022 Lexus IS, on the other hand, is equipped with a smaller eight-inch touch screen display for its Remote Touch infotainment software. It has wired connection for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Despite that effort, the screen displays murky graphics and does not really offer great responses for user commands. For safety, it only includes rear cross traffic alert, and blind spot monitoring on its list of standard driver aids.


The base twin-turbo V6 engine for the Porsche Panamera hits at 325 horsepower. This one has a twin-turbo V8 engine paired with an electric motor, enough to yield 690 horsepower. The base turbo-four engine for the 2022 Lexus IS only hits up to 241 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2022 Porsche Panamera is more than just an elegant-looking ride. It features technologies that you can certainly count on. With its powerful engines finishing up its great offerings, you will see why it is a better option over the 2022 Lexus IS.
