The base model comes with 19-inch alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, automatic liftgate, and a panoramic roof. It is the only Panamera with rear-wheel drive, but it doesn’t add to the driving experience. Having more power would have made a bigger difference, but the low-output 325 hp and 331 lb-ft are just not enough. Thankfully, Porsche has a decent standard specification, including all of the must-have features across most of the range. That means you get partial leather upholstery, eight-way power-adjustable and heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, a HomeLink transceiver, and a 12.3-inch infotainment system mated to a ten-speaker sound system. Wireless Apple CarPlay is standard, and from this year, Android Auto is also wireless. It has two USB charging ports in the second row, a wireless charging pad, SiriusXM, voice commands, and a 150-watt, 10-speaker audio system. Its standard driver assists include a backup camera, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, keyless entry and start, lane-keep assist, three auto-dimming mirrors, and traffic-sign recognition.
