The 2019 Porsche Panamera and the 2019 Audi A7 are top contenders for Farmington Hills luxury sedan shoppers. Both of these premium vehicles come loaded with top-shelf features, but when you take a closer look, you’ll find that the Porsche offers a number of key amenities that are missing in the Audi. Find out which luxury sedan you’ll be driving home in this Panamera vs. A7 comparison from Fred Lavery Porsche Company.

Panamera vs. A7: Interior Features

Both the Panamera and the A7 offer Rochester Hills area drivers with a comfortable and well-equipped interior. With either, you’ll enjoy electronically adjustable front seats, Apple CarPlay®, steering wheel-mounted controls, and voice-activated navigation. There are, however, some significant differences in the standard interior features that you should take note of:

  • Touchscreen display: The Panamera comes with a 12-inch high-resolution touchscreen display, while the Audi has an 8-inch display.
  • Climate Control: A four-zone automatic climate control system is standard in the Panamera. The Audi A7 comes with three-zone climate control.
  • Rear Seat Entertainment System: You’ll keep your passengers happy with the Porsche Panamera Rear Seat Entertainment system. The Audi doesn’t offer anything comparable.

Due to its hatchback design, the Panamera interior is the more versatile of the two. With the 40/20/40-split rear seat folded down, the Porsche can provide up to 47.3 cubic feet of cargo space. The A7 can only provide 24.9 cubic feet. When you need to haul gardening supplies, sports gear, or a week’s worth of groceries from Papa Joe’s, you’ll appreciate the extra room that the Panamera offers.

Panamera vs. A7: Performance

The Panamera is sometimes considered a 4-door 911, and like that iconic sports car, it is precision-engineered to deliver superior performance on the roads in and around Bloomfield Hills.

Comparing the base trim models of the Panamera and A7, you’ll find that both are equipped with a 3.0L V6 engine. The Panamera engine is paired to a 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission with auto start/stop function, and the Audi gets a 7-speed automatic. You get 330 hp with the Porsche V6, and 335 hp with the Audi, but the Panamera can deliver a top track speed of 164 mph, to the 130 mph of the A7. When equipped with the Sport Chrono package, the Panamera adds features such as a performance display with lap times and a drive mode selector.
