The Panamera and Panamera 4 with new three-litre V6 turbo engine
More power, greater efficiency
The newly designed three-litre V6 engine completes the range of Panamera engines at the entry-level end. On the Panamera, the agile six-cylinder engine drives only the rear wheels, while on the Panamera 4, both the rear and front axle are powered. In all models, the motor is linked to an extremely fast eight-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK). Like all other engines of the new Gran Turismo, this V6 is also a turbo engine with direct petrol injection. It develops 243 kW (330 hp) between 5400 and 6400 rpm, representing a 20 hp increase over the naturally aspirated engine used in the previous model. The turbo engine delivers its maximum torque of 450 Nm from just 1340 rpm (predecessor: 400 Nm). The V6 turbo is much more responsive than the naturally aspirated V6 engine it replaces. Despite the improved power and torque development, consumption was still reduced by up to 1.0 l/100 km.
An overview of the figures for the new Panamera models is provided below (acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h without/with Sport Chrono Package including Launch Control; consumption values: New European Driving Cycle, combined):
Panamera: 264 km/h; 0-100 km/h in 5.7 s/5.5 s; 7.5 l/100 km.
Panamera 4: 262 km/h; 0-100 km/h in 5.5 s/5.3 s; 7.7 l/100 km.
Exterior equipment with 19-inch wheels and LED headlights
The new Porsche Panamera and Panamera 4 feature high-gloss black air intake covers in the front wings and black brake callipers behind the 19-inch wheels. The standard equipment also includes matt black side window strips, LED main headlights, four-point LED daytime running lights, LED front light modules with position lights and indicators, a driving light assistant with Automatic Coming Home lights, three-dimensional LED tail lights with four-point brake lights, a full-length light strip at the rear and ambient lighting in the mirror housings.
From a functional perspective, the standard exterior equipment includes a rain sensor for the windscreen wipers and an electrically opening and closing tailgate. In addition, the front and rear of the vehicle are equipped with ParkAssist, which provides visual and acoustic warnings of obstacles encountered when parking and manoeuvring.
