Superior Porsche Performance

The 2016 Porsche Panamera harbors greater performance aspects than the 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, thanks to a dynamic 3.6L V-6, which allows the Panamera to pump out an impressive 310 hp. That’s enough juice to provide endless thrills and a fantastic automotive experience. The CLS-Class, in comparison, delivers a lesser 241 hp from its 2.0L Turbo I-4. If you thirst for even greater speed, then the available 430 hp V-8 from the Porsche model will offer an exhilarating advantage over available 329 hp twin-turbo V-6 from the CLS-Class. Moreover, despite its turbo-charged engine, the CLS-Class will give you poorer handling, with only 273 lb-ft of torque in contrast to the 291 lb-ft of torque from the Panamera. Indeed you’ll experience a more riveting drive with the Porsche in virtually every regard, as the Panamera boasts a 4.0 second 0 to 60 mph time, whereas the CLS-Class offers a distinctly inferior 6.1 second 0 to 60 mph time. Comprehensively, the Porsche Panamera bests the CLS-Class in the realm of performance, and its offerings don’t end there—far from it.

Greater Design Prowess from Porsche

You’ll find distinct advantages in the design provided by Porsche Panamera. For example, you’ll be cruising on a wider wheelbase, offering better stability. It also totes a 115-inch wheelbase, whereas the CLS-Class was designed with a 111.8-inch wheelbase. Moreover, you’ll benefit from a 76-inch max width with the Panamera, whereas the CLS-Class will give you a less impressive 71.3-inch max width. All of that translates to a better interface with the road, and a better design. Moreover, you’ll be cruising with the unquestionable façade of the utmost in luxury sports car design: Porsche.
