2020 Porsche Panamera vs 2020 BMW 7 Series

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

Porsche and BMW are elite brands that understandably have your full attention as you search for your next sedan. The Porsche Panamera and the BMW 7 Series are full-size sedans that have premium styling and features. While they are superficially comparable, their many differences that will influence your selection are revealed through an in-depth review.


The 2020 Porsche Panamera impressively brings the automaker’s reputation for producing high-performance sports cars into the Panamera’s design. This four-door sedan has power scoops that start at the side air vents and carry across the doors. The profile shows off extreme curvature over the roof, a flat hood, and a pointed nose. This nose holds the wraparound grille and angled headlights that are Porsche’s family traits. The 2020 BMW 7 Series has a classic sedan profile with soft contouring and a metallic accent on the side doors. The large grille has two pieces, and they are integrated with two-part LED headlights.


The innovative design of the 2020 Panamera continues throughout the interior. Wood and metal accents combine with superior leather and sport seats to set an athletic tone. The rising center console adds to the cockpit’s environment, and its strong angle leaves room for only the large display screen in the center stack. In the Panamera, you will appreciate access to mounted functions and paddle shifters on the high-performance steering wheel, smart device integration, auto climate control, an elite sound system, a navigation system, and more. In the BMW 7 Series, on the other hand, the center stack has three distinct layers. The top layer holds the infotainment system screen. This is followed by a layer of air vents and a third layer containing the climate management system’s controls. This sedan also has heated seats, a push-button starter, and other features.


The Panamera for 2020 is offered in an extensive range of trim levels. The entry-level trim comes with a 325-horsepower engine. At the top of the trim line, the Panamera is outfitted with a 689-horsepower e-hybrid powertrain. The 2020 BMW 7 series is offered with a single-core model and one engine option. This is an I-6 engine that produces 335 horsepower.
