2020 Porsche Panamera vs 2020 BMW 7 Series

Serving Milwaukee, WI

Do you crave the luxury of an elite sedan as well as the power of a high-performance vehicle? The Porsche Panamera and the BMW 7 Series are premium full-size sedans that seemingly both can live up to your high expectations. However, before you make a firm commitment to either of these sedans, you need to understand their stark differences and anticipate how these differences may impact your experience on the road in the years to come.


The 2020 Porsche Panamera has a breathtaking exterior with classic Porsche styling on the front and sleek, elegant flow down the sides and throughout the profile. The nose is pointed with a swooping hood and power bulges flaring back from the signature headlights. This four-door sedan perfectly delivers the experience of driving a spacious sedan with a sports car-like façade. The 2020 BMW 7 Series is also a full-size luxury sedan. Its exterior design shows off a traditional sedan profile, BMW’s sectioned grille design, and fairly horizontal definition flowing across the side doors. Both of these sedans are available with remote entry, a power sunroof, powered and heated side mirrors, and other expected equipment.


When you slide into the Panamera’s cabin, you will immediately appreciate the sporty, luxurious feel across both rows. This sedan is outfitted with premium leather material and temperature management for both rows. The center console includes beverage holders mounted on the lid of the storage compartment, and the primary console area angles upward and outward as it flows toward the dashboard. It connects to the panel directly underneath the touch display screen. Between smart device integration, voice controls, a navigation system, digital display gauges, a rear entertainment center, and more, the Panamera is the sedan that will continue to impress you. The 7 Series from BMW, on the other hand, has a flat center console with horizontal design elements running across the dashboard. The center stack has three distinct sections, and these hold the touch display screen on top, the air vents in the center, and the climate management interface below the air vents.


At the base trim level, both of these elite sedans have comparable horsepower ratings, and these sedans are available in several higher trim levels with more advanced capabilities. The 2020 Porsche Panamera’s performance is elevated by stability and traction management features, electromechanical power steering with variable ratio, an aluminum multi-link rear suspension, and an aluminum double-wishbone front suspension. The 2020 BMW 7 Series comes with power steering, anti-locking brakes, traction control, stability control, and a few additional mechanical features.
