The American automotive market has not accepted wagons with the same kind of enthusiasm as they have accepted sedans, SUVs, and pickup trucks. However, things are about change. At the forefront of that change is Porsche and primarily, the 2022 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo wagon.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

Carrying over with very minor changes for the 2022 model year, prices for the Porsche Panamera start at $98,000. It is also available in a sedan body style which is reviewed separately. It represents the best of technology from the German brand and competes against the Audi A6 Allroad, Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon, and Volvo V90 Cross Country.

Features
8.0/10

There are two trim levels offered with the Porsche Panamera and those are the base version and the S version. The rear-wheel-drive variants offered in the regular Panamera are not offered in the wagon body style. Even with the base trim, the car is very well equipped and comes with adaptive suspension, panoramic sunroof, heated front seats, 12.3-inch infotainment screen, navigation system, and so on.

We recommend

When deciding which trim to buy, it is very hard to look past the new base trim level, as it has everything one would need. One has to also take note of the fact that it is priced quite more simply than any of its competition and hence the base trim itself is expensive. This wagon is very well loaded and comes with features like adaptive suspension, 20-inch wheels, LED headlights, leather upholstery, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, panoramic sunroof, four-zone automatic climate control, and so on. 

2022 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Wagon Release date

Porsche had initially promised to release the car around the middle of this year which is about now but due to the pandemic restrictions, the release has been pushed further ahead. As part of official releases so far, we expect that this release date might be around early 2022.

Engine and Performance
5.0/10

When it comes to the performance of the Porsche Panamera, there is a lot to say. There is a new 2.9 L turbocharged V6 engine that has been incorporated in the car since last year. The car is all-wheel-drive and this makes for an excellent performing vehicle right from the get-go. Its engine makes an output of 325 hp and 331 pound-feet of torque. Even though these numbers don’t exactly have some class-leading, they make the car perform very well.

The Panamera 4S gets a significant bump in power and results in 443 hp and 405 pound-feet of torque. Its acceleration is extremely quick because of the electric motors being very quick to deploy the power. This results in a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.0 seconds even for the non-S variant. The car is good for a top speed of 164 mph.

One can see that among the competitors, the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo is priced significantly higher but manages to bring that kind of value in terms of the kit it offers as well. It is a significantly better-performing car in every single aspect. The Volvo is not anything close to the fastest on paper or in real life while the Audi and the Mercedes-Benz offered relatively good performance for the price.

Fuel Economy
6.0/10

Another big advantage of cars from Porsche nowadays is that they offer excellent fuel efficiency as well as performance. The new Panamera is no exception and has an EPA estimated fuel efficiency rating of 19 MPG in the city, 26 on the highway, and 22 combined. These are excellent figures and are good enough for a range of 616 miles which is class-leading.

Although the Volvo has very decent fuel efficiency and is better than the Mercedes and the Porsche, it fails to deliver the same kind of range as these competitors. We also find that all cars in this category except the Panamera have much smaller fuel tanks and hence offer a much lesser overall range. Although we can excuse the Audi because it is supremely fuel-efficient at the end of the day, one has to observe that the competitors will not be as great as long-distance tourers. 

Interior
9.0/10

When it comes to the interior, Porsche has never let us down with either design or fit and finish. Things are no different with the new Panamera and one can see that the interiors are very enticing. Ingress and egress are also very easy and the wagon body style is the car very well in terms of practicality. There is a slight lack of space inside the cabin but the driving position is very nice.

However, some controls are a bit hard to reach and bring down the total ergonomics of this cabin. The infotainment systems of this car are quite decent and offer great assistance. We assure people will get used to this soon but it may take some time adapting to. Cargo capacity is decent at 18.3 ft.³ but nothing exceptional.

The cabin of all cars in this category are quite spacious but the Audi offers excellent room in every row. The Mercedes Benz is the only car that can seat seven people while the rest of the competitors seat only five. What is even more impressive is that the Mercedes also has nearly double the cargo capacity of the Porsche while the Audi is not much behind. Some standard features include:

  • Ventilated seat type - heated and cooled
  • Alcantara headliner
  • Porsche Advanced Cockpit Control
  • Heated and Powered seats
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Leather and Alcantara upholstery
  • Alcantara wrapped steering wheel
  • Dual panoramic sunroof

What’s there to keep you entertained in the 2022 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Wagon?

 When it comes to infotainment options, that is plenty on offer. The primary screen is large, approximately 12.3 inches in size. The driver information display is also digital. These systems are some of the most sophisticated of modern technology and everything from the suspension controls to the air conditioner and music is controlled by these systems.

They also offer all the necessary features one would expect. Some features of the infotainment system include: 

  • 12.3" touchscreen infotainment system with PCM
  • 10-speaker audio system
  • Optional Burmester and Bose audio system
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility
  • Amazon Alexa integration
  • Navigation
  • Rearview camera
Exterior
7.0/10

The Panamera had been the ugly duckling of the Porsche family. However, over time it has matured into an excellent piece of design. We feel that the wagon body style suits this design even more and hence it becomes one of the most exciting wagons around. Even in a sea of very modern SUVs, it looks right at home. It is also quite large in size but does not carry the penalty in terms of weight.

The Porsche is bigger than all of its competitors but we also have to remember that it is much more expensive. The Volvo V90 Cross Country offers the most amount of ground clearance as it is the least variant of the Volvo V 90 which was discontinued this year. In terms of weight, the Audi’s rather on the heavier side and weighs 4669 lbs. Some standout features include:

  • LED headlights with LED DRLs
  • LED taillights
  • Porsche Dynamic Lighting System
  • 20" alloy wheels
  • Optional 21" alloy wheels
  • High-performance summer tires
  • 25 different alloy wheel design
  • Rain sensing wipers
  • Panoramic sunroof
Safety
2.0/10

When it comes to safety, Porsche cars have been performing extremely well. However, being a car that is produced in very small volumes, it has not been evaluated by the NHTSA or the IHS IIHS yet. It comes with most of the advanced safety features available in the market today as standard features and one can rest assured that it is a safe car. Some of the standout safety features include: 

  • Side-impact beams
  • Brake Assist
  • Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
  • ABS And Driveline Traction Control
  • Backup Camera
  • Traction Control
  • Stability Control
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • Airbags
  • Blind-spot monitoring

2022 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Vs. 2022 Audi A6 Allroad wagon

As we have observed, the Porsche Panamera is superior to the Audi in terms of nearly every single aspect that one can think of. However, it is offered at a premium when you compare it to the Audi and would depend on the buyer whether they need that much extra luxury and sophistication. For that price, we still feel that the Audi is a good pick.

2022 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo vs. 2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon 

The Mercedes-Benz has excellent performance and good looks but fails to impress in certain areas. It has also been a bit down on technology and sophistication when you compare it to the Porsche. The Mercedes Benz is still a winner from a practical point of view and would be an excellent choice.

2022 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Vs. 2022 Volvo V90 Cross Country?

The Volvo V90 Cross Country is an excellent car but it is not as powerful or engaging to drive as the Porsche. It is much lighter but at the cost of practicality. It also offers very little range when you compare it to the Porsche. The Volvo sure is a safe wagon but the Porsche also seems to be a tough competitor in the safety segment. Hence, we would pick the Porsche over the Volvo.

Final Verdict

The 2022 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo is a wagon that presents a lot of reasons for one to choose it over its competitors. But at the same time, its price is significantly heavier and that is a worrying aspect for many people. On one hand, it offers the best driving dynamics one can hope for in the segment and also a lot of luxury. But it takes someone who appreciates engineering to realize how much more that is worth.
