Serving North Olmsted, OH

The 2019 Porsche Panamera and the 2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class are undoubtedly some of the exceptional luxury vehicles on the market today. However, since you can only drive one of them at a time, you will need to choose which one is right for you. This can be a tough decision to make, so we decided to help you out by investigating how these two fabulous vehicles stack up against each other in some key areas – technology, features, and performance.

On-Board Technology

Relative to the other vehicles in their class, both the 2019 Porsche Panamera and the 2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class offer superb technology features. However, if you take a side-by-side look at the gadgets that are provided by both of these two vehicles, it quickly becomes evident that the Panamera has a little more to offer than the S-Class. A brief listing of the Porsche’s tech features would include a high-res 12-inch color display; a Night Vision Assist safety system, a rear seat entertainment system, an instrument cluster with an analog tachometer, and a rear-seat touchscreen display. Meanwhile, the Mercedes-Benz’s gadgets include a Heads-Up Display, an HD Radio, a COMMAND system, a 12.3 instrument cluster display, and a rear seat entertainment system. If technology is essential to you, the Panamera is the right choice.

Standard Features

Both the 2019 Porsche Panamera and the 2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class offer an abundance of unique and impressive features as standard. Once again, however, an in-depth look at each vehicle’s offerings will soon lead you to the conclusion that the features available in the Panamera are superior to those in the S-Class. For instance, the 2019 Panamera features an 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) engine with Auto Start-Stop technology, six-piston aluminum monobloc fixed calipers at the front, four-piston aluminum monobloc fixed calipers in the rear, black-painted air outlet grilles, 19-inch Panamera wheels, the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system with built-in navigation, and a high-gloss black interior design. The 2019 S-Class, on the other hand, offers features like an energy-efficient ECO Start/Stop system, heated power front seats, and an automatic transmission. If you want to enjoy as many features as you possible every time you jump into your car, the 2019 Porsche Panamera is the vehicle for you.

Performance

Both the 2019 Porsche Panamera and 2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class offer the level of power and performance that you would expect from vehicles of this caliber. However, while their performance stats are similar in many categories, the S-Class cannot keep up with the Panamera when it comes to acceleration. The Porsche’s standard 3.0-liter turbo V6 engine can bring it from 0 to 60 in just 4.7 seconds. The Mercedes-Benz’s 3.0-liter V-6 engine takes 5.3 seconds to achieve the same task. If you want a car that packs a punch under the hood, it has got to be the Panamera.
