Porsche has revealed the new Panamera Sport Turismo estate, which can be configured to seat three passengers in the rear for the first time.
As an extension to the Panamera family, Porsche will debut the new Panamera Sport Turismo at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo is an estate version of the standard four-door coupe version of the all new generation of the car.
The Panamera Sport Turismo will be available with five engine options in Panamera 4 Sport Turismo, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo, Panamera 4S Sport Turismo, Panamera 4S Diesel Sport Turismo and the most powerful Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo which has a maximum output of 541bhp. The new Panamera Sport Turismo also has a top speed of 170km/h.
Porsche will offer the Panamera Sport Turismo as a four seater option with individually electronically adjustable rear seats. For the first time, the Panamera will also get an option of a three seats for the rear passengers. Porsche claims that the raised roofline allows better headroom in the rear while also making getting in and out of the car easier. In addition, the usability of the luggage compartment benefits from the wide opening tailgate, which is electrically operated as standard and provides up to 520-litre storage capacity. With the rear seats folded down, it can be expanded up to 1,390-litres. However, for the Hybrid version a slight compromise will have to be made as the hybrid technology eats up into the space in the boot.
Porsche has also thrown in some clever goodies with the Panamera Sport Turismo like Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC Sport) and Porsche Traction Management (PTM). While the ‘S’ models get adaptive air suspension with three-chamber technology as standard.
At the Geneva Motor Show, Porsche will display five versions of the Panamera in addition to the Sport Turismo estate. On display will be the Panamera 4, Panamera 4S, Panamera 4S Diesel, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and the Panamera Turbo.
