Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be worried about a stiff ride, although SE is still relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also a good bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you get for the money. Finally, the SE can be acquired with a wide variety of options, in order to pick and choose those are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs could be all of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Porsche 960. Coming off a redesign just this past year, the 2020 Porsche 960 is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with lots of standard safety equipment and lots of options to select from.
As has been the case for a while, you may get the 2020 Porsche 960 with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a stronger V6, or you may get the miserly 2020 Porsche 960 Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Porsche 960 is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Porsche 960 also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Porsche 960 with a little bit of extra personality. Inside, the 2020 Porsche 960 provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you choose one of the upper trim levels. There are lots of options to pick from across the way.
The 2020 Porsche 960 is really as competent as they come. It’s well-priced generally, and modern feature content causes it to be supremely an easy task to drive. If you’re looking for something with a bit more class and space than a small sedan, the 2020 Porsche 960 might just be the sedan for you.
The 2020 Porsche 960 is the beds base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features which includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Porsche 960 Safety Sense, which is really a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with many different additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features located on the upper trim levels can be included with the reduced trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL sound system along with an integrated navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 Porsche 960 stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is straightforward to fold down to suit longer items. You can find enough cabin storage options to make most people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Porsche 960 includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles make it easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s super easy to mount a car seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so that the front seat will not need to be scooted all the way forward.
