Power & Speed

The 2018 Porsche Panamera and 2018 Audi A7 come equipped with 3.0L turbocharged V6 engines and 8-speed automatic transmissions. Although they deliver similar levels of power, torque, and fuel-efficiency, the Panamera easily outclasses the A7 in terms of speed. On the track, the Panamera reaches a top speed of 164 mph, while the Audi A7, like the BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe, maxes out at 130 mph.

The A7 is quicker to accelerate to 60 mph; however, you can equip your Panamera with Sport Chrono to match A7 Sedan’s 0-60 acceleration time of 5.2 seconds and obtain the following:

  • Digital and analog stopwatch
  • Special graphic showing longitudinal/lateral acceleration
  • Performance display with lap times
  • Drive mode selector on the steering wheel

Luxury Features

As luxury sedans, the Porsche Panamera and Audi A7 come equipped with driver memory settings, Apple CarPlay, a rearview camera, and selectable drive modes. Of course, both vehicles offer exclusives of their own. The Audi A7 comes standard with a blind spot monitor and a 14-speaker sound system, while the Porsche Panamera goes a bit further with performance- and comfort-based luxuries:

Adaptive Rear Spoiler: The Panamera houses a hidden unfolding rear spoiler that deploys from beneath the rear lip for greater rear downforce, so you can cruise Livermore highways or hit the track at full power.

Optional Rear-Axle Steering: By steering the rear wheels in the same or opposite direction as the front, rear-axle steering streamlines high- and low-speed maneuvers.

12.3-inch Central Display: Unlike the 8-inch display inside the A7, the Panamera Sedan’s 12.3-inch display offers a wider and clearer view of menus, music playlists, and maps of Redwood City or San Ramon.

WiFi Hotspot: The Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system includes a mobile WiFi hotspot, allowing you to stay connected on the road.
