2020 Porsche Panamera vs 2020 BMW 7 Series

How Does the New Porsche Panamera Rate Against the Competition?

Comparing the Porsche Panamera to the BMW 7 Series

Elegance isn't cheap. To get the best, you have to expect to pay for it. So, you want to know, when it comes to spending your hard-earned money on a large luxury sedan, you are getting the very best available. For Hennessy Porsche, that means the Porsche Panamera. It does have some competitors, like the BMW 7 Series, challenging to be your choice as you make your daily rounds through Roswell, GA. But there are many ways the Porsche Panamera rises above the competition. Hennessy Porsche wants to show you how the Panamera does, just that.



When it comes to the performance of your sedan, you can go big or go home. No one knows how to get a car moving like Porsche. Both models offer plenty of energy for all of their trim levels. Both also offer a high-powered hybrid version of their sedans. Let's take a look at what each offers in terms of horsepower.

Porsche Panamera:

  • Six available powertrain options
  • 330-Horsepower turbocharged V6, 440-horsepower twin-turbo V6, 457-horsepower 4 E-hybrid V6 & electric motor, 453-horsepower twin-turbo V8, 550-horsepower V8, 677-horsepower E-Hybrid V8 & electric motor
  • Paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission
  • Base available in rear-wheel drive. All other trims come equipped with all-wheel drive

BMW 7 Series:

  • Five available powertrain options
  • 335-Horsepower six-cylinder, 523-horsepower turbocharged V8, 389-horsepower plug-in hybrid, 600-horsepower V8, 601-horsepower Twin Power Turbo V-12
  • Eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Standard rear-wheel drive, with available all-wheel drive

Fuel Performance

If saving trips to the gas station is important to you, avoid the pumps and stick with the hybrid options. The Panamera V6/hybrid powertrain offers you 51 MPGe for your trips around Roswell, GA. The 7 Series hybrid option supplies an impressive 56 MPGe. But not everyone opts for the hybrid. Which favors the drivers of the Panamera. Its EPA-estimated 19 mpg on the city streets and 27 mpg surpasses the available 17/city and 25/highway, when you drive the BMW 750i trim. On the whole, you can get farther between fill-ups in the new Porsche Panamera.

Interior Space


Both sedans fit five passengers quite comfortably. The Porsche Panamera also has two configurations, which allow four seats, so each passenger has plenty of room to stretch out. Both also start with sophisticated-looking leather seats and heated front seats.


If you have a large number of items you need to haul around, the Porsche Panamera is the obvious choice. You'll find the 17.4 cubic feet of cargo space exceeds the 14 cubic feet of the 7 Series. Need more room? Lay down the seats of the Panamera, and you'll discover 50 cubic feet to fill. Unfortunately, the 7 Series tops out at 14, because its rear seats do not lower.

Interior Features (Tech or Safety Amenities)

You expect a lot from the cabin of your luxury sedan. That could be the difference-maker for many drivers. This is where the Porsche Panamera excels. Many sedans offer Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and navigation standard with its infotainment package. The Panamera and 7 Series are no different. However, the Panamera is equipped with a 12-inch infotainment touchscreen with vivid graphics commanding the entire operation. You also get a Wi-Fi hotspot, SiriusXM and HD radio as part of the standard fare. The 7 Series gives you a 10.2-inch touchscreen, which is still impressive, but not quite as bold as the Panamera. Android users won't find much use from the infotainment system, as their device won't be compatible.

On a clear day, you can open up the panoramic sunroof of the Panamera to enjoy the fresh air and blue skies over Roswell, GA. Turn up the tunes and enjoy the music as it comes through your 14-speaker Bose stereo system. Or hear it all with clarity through the 21-speaker Burmester audio system.
