Porsche panamera s hybrid (4)
Average score for the Panamera Hybrid:
7.610
based on 7 expert reviews

We aggregate the most helpful Porsche Panamera Hybrid reviews from the best publications.

Reviews are mixed on the Panamera Hybrid. For some it makes a lot of sense if you intend to do a lot of city driving where the car can use its electric mode for silent, smooth and economical running. Testers also praise the transition between petrol, electric and both modes at the same time.

It’s also one of the quickest hybrids on sale so will appeal to petrolheads. Several reviewers note that it’s a hybrid with no sacrifices in terms of performance - unsurprising with a supercharged, electrically-assisted V6 under the bonnet - but many reviews criticise the huge extra cost over the more economical and only marginally slower diesel model.

If you want performance and economy it’s a good compromise, but the Diesel makes more financial sense.

The Porsche Panamera S Hybrid is a great achievement. It delivers sports car pace with near family car economy and emissions.

You'll drive it differently and enjoy the electricity alone silent running, but the S Hybrid's interest lies in countries where buyers can't get their heads around the idea of diesel cars.

You'll certainly need deep pockets. At £86,476, the Panamera Hybrid costs £8255 more than the V8 petrol.

Probably the most convincing hybrid on sale today. Ought to be at that price.

...this is another ‘eco’ variant that doesn’t require the driver to make any noticeable sacrifices, with petrol and electric power blending seamlessly for everything from gentle wafting to full-bore acceleration.
