In a 2017 comparison test that included the other cars, the 2019 Porsche Panamera Turbo S placed fifth. Handling also proved to be another 2019 Porsche Panamera Turbo S weak spot and we found the steering to be numb.

The 2019 Porsche Panamera Turbo S, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the 2019 Porsche Panamera Turbo S doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rear view camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.

The car is the only 2019 Porsche Panamera Turbo S trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.”
