2017 Porsche Panamera vs 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Serving Tallahassee, Quincy, Bainbridge, FL and Valdosta, Thomasville, GA

The 2017 Porsche Panamera is a luxurious sedan that has a racing-inspired design. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is also a lavish sedan that's renowned for its sophisticated character. With patented installations like the PDK transmission, Porsche Traction Management and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, the Panamera outperforms the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. This premium Porsche also offers unrivaled active safety technology such as the Night View and InnoDrive.


The 2017 Porsche Panamera is equipped with the eight-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) automatic transmission system, which includes the Auto Start/Stop function. The first six gears have ratios that are optimized for sporty performance. The two upper gears are optimized for maximum efficiency even when this Porsche sedan cruises at fast speeds. Even though it offers solid handling, the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission system in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is bulkier and less responsive than the PDK. The Panamera also comes standard with the Porsche Traction Management. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has the 4MATIC AWD that simply doesn't match up to the PTM technology. Additionally, the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport and rear-axle steering are some class-leading features that highlight the high-performance design of the Panamera. These two cutting-edge features give this Porsche sedan tremendous agility on the highway and in urban settings. With some adjustments by the Porsche Active Suspension Management, even the roughest roads won't shake up the Panamera. The Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) further enhance the capabilities of this premium sedan.


The front seats in the 2017 Porsche Panamera are available with an 18-way power design. Featuring side bolsters and a massage function, these ergonomic sports seats can be precisely adjusted with an electric memory system. Even though they're quite advanced, the 16-way power front seats in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class fall just short of matching the sophistication of the Panamera's front seats. This Porsche sedan also has comfortable rear seats that include lumbar cushions and other ergonomic features that minimize stress on the entire body. A climate control system with four zones ensures that all five occupants remain comfortable in this luxurious Porsche. This innovative HVAC system includes an ionization feature that purifies air in the entire cabin. A two-piece panoramic sunroof can also be opened to let some fresh air and warm sunshine inside the Panamera.

Active Safety

The 2017 Porsche Panamera is equipped with the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes that have been engineered to perform well even in inclement weather. Lightweight and durable, these patented brakes significantly reduce the stopping distance on wet pavement. Making lane changes in this Porsche should be simple with some help from the Lane Change Assist, Turn Assist and Lane Keep Assist. When the InnoDrive system is on, this Porsche sedan will automatically slow down according to factors like weather, terrain and traffic movement ahead. This feature is paired with the Adaptive Cruise Control to ensure optimum safety when you set the Porsche Panamera on auto pilot. Additionally, the Night View and the Porsche Dynamic Light System give you less to worry about when driving in dark conditions.
