 Pros The standard Porsche Panamera features a rear-wheel-drive, but the Porsche Panamera 4S sedan features all-wheel-drive, which could lead to some drivers in feeling safer whileexperiencing adverse weather conditions or tackling difficult roads. This AWD is a unique feature for a family-friendly sedan.

 Pros Unlike the Porsche 911, which features a rather sparse interior due to its dedication to being powerful and fast, the Porsche Panamera 4S is well-equipped with a luxurious interior that keeps its passengers feeling comfortable and stylish with features such as four individual seats, heated front seats, high-gloss interior elements, an engine immobilizer safety feature, a Driver Memory Package, a Sports Steering Wheel with Shift Paddles, tinted/heated glass all around, and Porsche's Communicational Management system. The cabin of the Porsche Panamera 4S can comfortably seat four full-sized adults, who are guaranteed to feel comfortably in its roomy interior.

 Pros The Porsche Panamera is the brand's first luxury sedan, and it does an amazing job of combining power and full-size sedan-style luxury. The Panamera line also expands the reach of the brand to nbuyers that aren't traditional Porsche sports car enthusiasts.

 Pros The Panamera 4S is quitethe sporty sedan. It features a 4.8-liter V8-cylinder engine that produces a maximum horsepower of 400, as well as VarioCam Plus, a Direct Fuel Injection System, 7-speed Porsche PDK transmission, and a sport button on the center console for determining one's preferred driving mode.

 Cons Like many luxury vehicles, though the starting price for the Panamera 4 is reasonable at $95,200, that price can quickly increase with added packages and options.

 Cons The Porsche Panamera 4S sedan features a unique exterior design/styling, which some buyers may not find attractive. Other drivers, however, will just be glad to finally be in a sedan labeled "Porsche."
