2023 Porsche Panamera Interior and Cargo

Porsche Panamera Interior & Cargo Rating

2023 Panamera Interior

The Panamera's interior is a high-tech marvel. Perhaps even annoyingly so. You get the standard Porsche instrument layout, with the tachometer in the center, right where it should be. The analog dials are flanked by high-resolution screens that display valuable information. Porsche uses a 12.3-inch touchscreen as a centerpiece, and below that, you'll find the shortcut buttons for the climate control and the stubby shifter. We like that most of the driver controls have been moved to the steering wheel. Porsche introduced its haptic feedback buttons with the launch of the second-generation Panamera. We love the idea behind these buttons, but they feel like they haven't been appropriately developed yet. Pushing a button and getting the desired result is a bit hit and miss at times. You get sturdy German quality as standard, which goes a long way toward justifying the high asking price.

Seating and Interior Space

The Porsche is sold as a 2+2 seater, and that's the only format worth going for. All four seating positions provide generous legroom and headroom. The individual bucket seats in the rear go a long way towards providing the utmost comfort. Replacing the standard rear seat configuration with a bench is a meaningless exercise and one we'd advise against. The Executive model has a longer wheelbase, giving rear passengers even more legroom to stretch out, which will be immediately apparent if you prefer to conduct a test drive from the back seat. Although the thick B-pillar can partially obscure the view out in certain situations, visibility is generally very good.

Interior Colors and Materials

The Panamera comes standard with partial leather seats available in Black or Agate Grey at no extra cost. If you want the Black/Luxor Beige combination, you have to fork over an additional $390. The single-tone full leather interiors retail for $3,790 each. The available colors are Black, Agate Grey, Marsala, and Saddle Brown. The dual-tone options retail for $4,320 and the options here are Black/Bordeaux Red, Marsala/Cream, Black/Chalk, Saddle Brown/Luxor Beige, Black/Saddle Brown, and Black/Luxor Beige. The Club Leather options cost $5,650 and are available in Cohiba Brown and Truffle Brown.

The GTS comes standard with a black interior and a mix of leather and Race-Tex upholstery. It also has black brushed aluminum interior trim. On this model, there are different upholstery upgrades, such as the GTS Interior Package in Black/Chalk or Black/Carmine Red that adds $3,480 to the price. The full leather upgrades on the GTS are also less expensive.

On all models, specific interior parts can be finished in leather, Race-Tex, wood, carbon fiber, aluminum, or a combination. Even the steering column casing can be finished in leather, and this is an area of the cabin you'll rarely touch.

2023 Panamera Trunk and Cargo Space

The standard Panamera has a 17.6 cubic foot trunk that can be increased to 47.3 cubes when you fold the rear seats flat. Executive models come with the same 17.6 cube trunk, but the cargo capacity increases to 52.6 cubes when you fold the rear seats flat, thanks to the additional body length. The hybrid models don't have quite so much cargo room. In the Executive models, the hybrid has 14.2 cubes or 49.1 cubes with the seats folded (14.3/49.3 for the 4S E Hybrid Executive). The standard-wheelbase hybrid has 14.2/43.8 cubes of space, and 14.3/44 cubes in 4S E-Hybrid guise.

On the inside, there's a lengthy center console that runs the length of the car in 2+2 guise. It houses two cupholders up front and another two in the rear, along with door compartments front and rear. Front occupants also get a storage space underneath the armrest and a small glove compartment.

2023 Panamera Infotainment and Features


Most of the differences between the models are mechanical and cosmetic, which means the features list is relatively straightforward from the base model all the way up to the GTS. All models get a panoramic roof, an automatic rear hatch, an adaptive spoiler, dual-zone climate control, eight-way power-adjustable heated front seats, keyless entry with push-button start, a garage door opener, two high-resolution displays in the instrument cluster, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, two rear USB charging ports, and a wireless charging pad for front passengers. Executive models also get eight-way power-adjustable rear seats with a memory package and heating.

Safety features include a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, and front/rear parking sensors. It wouldn't be a Porsche without an options list as long as your arm. Available features include a head-up display, a surround-view camera system, night vision assist, four-zone climate control, soft-close doors, and ventilated front/rear seats.


All Panamera models have a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity, wireless Apple CarPlay, wired Android Auto, SiriusXM, and HD Radio. Connect Plus is also standard, which means you get online navigation with real-time traffic information. You can also install the Porsche App, which will help you find the car, track its movements, and check its status. As standard, the infotainment system is connected to a ten-speaker sound system. If that's not good enough, you can go for the 14-speaker Bose sound system for $1,600. A $7,530 21-speaker Burmester 3D sound system is also available. Finally, a rear-seat entertainment system can be added for $2,760.
