Porsche is gearing up to launch the all-new Panamera for the global markets on November 24. Ahead of its market debut, the luxury carmaker has revealed its interior layout. The Panamera will continue with one more generation of engines, including plug-in hybrid and petrol units, before switching to electric power. The new model’s cabin – it has three screens along with the ‘Driver Experience’, which places the driver at the centre and offers a perfect combination of analogue and digital elements – is undoubtedly inspired by Porsche's electrified Taycan. Here are all the relevant details regarding the 2024 Panamera.
2024 Porsche Panamera: Interior Layout and Features
While the sweeping centre console style of the dashboard remains largely unchanged in the new Panamera, the contents have undergone significant alterations. The updated Panamera now includes a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, with an optional 10.9-inch passenger display, and a 12.6-inch digital instrument cluster. For the driver, an optional head-up display can be added, serving as a fourth monitor for enhanced visibility and information access.
Numerous climate-control functions have been moved to the touchscreen, resulting in a reduction of physical controls. However, a few conventional rocker buttons for air temperature and potentially fan speed remain. The gear selector has shifted from the centre console to adjacent to the steering wheel, and air vents are now electronically adjustable. The conventional turn-key starter has been replaced with a stop/start button. The overall cabin exudes a sleek and modern aesthetic, featuring ample ambient lighting and stylish accents. The Panamera’s interior will introduce Race-Tex and Pepita fabric upholstery, marking a shift away from leather for the first time. Additionally, the console separating the rear passengers' seating areas can accommodate a digital display.
2024 Porsche Panamera: Expected Powertrain Options
The Panamera will feature an upgraded line-up of petrol powertrains featuring extensively modified exhaust systems and adjusted software to comply with Euro 7 emissions standards. In addition to the twin-turbocharged 48V mild-hybrid engines, which are currently available in 2.9-litre and 4.0-litre displacements, the new Panamera is expected to have a significantly redesigned line-up of plug-in hybrid powertrains, which will also be offered with the fourth-generation Cayenne SUV.
