Official pictures of the new luxury four-door saloon's interior
12 February 2009

These are the first images of the interior of the new Porsche Panamera, the sports car firm’s four-door saloon which is due on sale in September.

The images show that the Porsche Panamera will offer plenty of luxurious touches and gadgets to accompany its hefty price tags, expected to run from around £50,000 to over £100,000.

The strongly profiled dashboard and prominent centre console (which runs right through to the rear cabin) are tailored in leather; 13 combinations of finish and materials will be available.

Other optional features include eight-way adjustable seats in the front, side, curtain and knee airbags, four-way climate control and a 16-speaker stereo from Burmeister.

Porsche is promising “exceptional head and legroom for all occupants”, attempting to allay fears that the sloping roofline might result in a cramped rear cabin. The pictures do confirm the Panamera will be a strict four-seater, however.

The Porsche Panamera will have 445 litres of luggage space (432 litres in the Turbo); Porsche says that four full-size suitcases can be stored in the ‘upright’ position behind the rear seats.

Few further technical details have emerged; however, Porsche has revealed that PDK transmission-equipped Panameras will get a stop-start system to help reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Porsche has yet to release official UK prices and specs for the Panamera, but it has confirmed that all cars will come with a vehicle tracker as standard, and that all buyers will receive a complimentary driving course at Silverstone.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
