Get the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be concerned about a stiff ride, although the SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road.

Finally, the SE can be acquired with a wide range of options, in order to pick and choose those are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs could be all the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2019 Porsche Panamera. Coming off a redesign just last year, the 2019 Porsche Panamera is a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to decide on from.
As has been the case for some time, you can get the 2019 Porsche Panamera with a four-cylinder engine or even a stronger V6, or you will get the miserly 2019 Porsche Panamera Hybrid. On the highway, the 2019 Porsche Panamera is comfortable and compliant. 2019 Porsche Panamera also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2019 Porsche Panamera with a little extra personality. Inside, the 2019 Porsche Panamera offers a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you opt for one of the upper trim levels. There are many of options to choose from across the way.
The 2019 Porsche Panamera is really as competent while they come. It’s well-priced overall, and modern feature content makes it supremely an easy task to drive. If you’re trying to find something with much more class and space when compared to a small sedan, the 2019 Porsche Panamera might just be the sedan for you.
The 2019 Porsche Panamera is the base trim. It includes a relatively light load of features that 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 2019 Porsche Panamera Safety Sense, which is 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 an automobile 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 consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of 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 bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Many of the features located on the upper trim levels may be added to the low trim levels as options. Other notable options incorporate a sunroof, a JBL sound system coupled with an integrated navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2019 Porsche Panamera stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is easy to fold down to suit longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make a lot of people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you will find modest door pockets in the front and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2019 Porsche Panamera has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is simple 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 vehicle seat, with obvious and easily accessible lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough room so that the front seat need not be scooted completely forward.
