At the base level, the Audi A7 and BMW 7-Series fail to overcome the Panamera Sedan’s power and torque. And even the legendarily equipped Mercedes-Benz S-Class doesn’t include some of the Panamera offerings, such as built-in WiFi and parking sensors. Meanwhile, none can match the Panamera Sedan’s furious top tack speed of 164 mph. Bottom line: this is the vehicle you want if you’re shopping for a speedy sedan with A-grade sports equipment and tech.
