After undergoing a redesign last model year, as well as adding plug-in hybrid variants for each trim, the Porsche Panamera is largely a carryover for 2022. Previous model year updates include the SportDesign front fascia now coming standard across all Panamera models, a newly-designed multifunction Sport steering wheel with shift paddles, a 5.9-inch longer wheelbase on the Executive body adding more rear-seat room, and more. As before, the Panamera is available as either a hatchback or wagon-like Sport Turismo model.
Twin-turbocharged engines are standard across most of the Panamera lineup. All models, except the GTS and Turbo S variants, get a 2.9-liter V6. The latter two get a 4.0-liter V8, adding an additional 20 and 70 horses under the hood, respectively, compared to the previous engine. Porsche added three range-topping PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) variants last model year, and those are paired with one of the two available engines yielding additional power and efficiency. The plug-ins offer an EV range of up to 19 miles depending on trim. Like last year, only the base model comes with rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive continues to be utilized on everything else.
The 2022 Porsche Panamera continues to be equipped with a 12.3-inch display screen, online navigation, real-time traffic information, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. All trims come with wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto, a smartphone compartment with wireless charging, voice control, and a Hi-fi sound system with 10 speakers. The audio system upgrades vary depending on the trim. Porsche offers 14-speaker Bose and 21-speaker Burmester surround sound packages.
Standard safety features on every trim of the 2022 Porsche Panamera include lane-keep assist, traffic sign recognition, and automatic emergency braking. Other features, such as adaptive cruise control, active lane control, surround view, night vision assist, and a head-up display are optional.
The 2022 Porsche Panamera is starting to arrive at dealership lots across the country.
Pricing ranges from $89,750 for the base Sedan to $201,550 for the Turbo S Executive E-Hybrid. All pricing includes destination.
