Posted on: Oct 9, 2013 - 2:24pm IST
Porsche India today announced that the Panamera facelift is available for sale. Over the past few days, Porsche dealers in India have had cars on display and today prices have been formally announced.
The Panamera facelift is described as having sportier dynamics, greater efficiency and sharper design, compared to the outgoing car.
Anil Reddi, Director of Porsche India –
The Panamera is Porsche’s unique offering in the Gran Turismo segment – it has four doors and four seats but it’s a sports car through and through. Luxury, comfort and driving performance all come together in a distinctive package in the new Panamera.
The five variants the Panamera is launched in are the Panamera Turbo, the naturally aspirated Panamera GTS, two variants of the petrol V6, Panamera and Panamera 4, and the Panamera Diesel. All engines are matched to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Porsche note that the front suspension on the revised car uses larger chassis mounts and so do the steering box mounts for a more direct response. The tires have been redeveloped, while the 18-inch rims are lighter.
Visually, changes include new intakes and headlamps and a redesigned rear with a wider windscreen and a wider spoiler. You can view the complete list of changes on our report from Auto Shanghai.
The Panamera can be had with spades of features which include an electric sun roof, Porsche Communication Management plus Navigation, BOSE sound system, Park Assist with reverse camera and Air Suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM). Full LED headlamps and a 1000W Burmester audio system are the pick of the optional extras.
The Panamera facelift is launched across eight dealerships and here are the prices.
