The 2018 Audi A7 goes toe-to-toe with the 2018 Porsche Panamera, as they are two of the finest cars you can purchase. There’s nothing called a wrong choice between the two, however, when you are looking for a wealth of luxury and convenience features, Panamera is what you should be considering. Read this comparison to know why Porsche is a recommended choice!

Design & Style

The sleek exterior is quite impressive for both the models. The 2018 Audi A7 is a 5-seater with spacious front seats and great visibility. Headroom is a little tight at the rear seat, but the cabin is attractively designed with plenty of soft-touch materials.

The four-seater 2018 Porsche Panamera outclasses A7 with plenty of legroom and headroom in both rows, offering comfortable seating. The moment you climb inside the vehicle, you will appreciate the interior quality of the cabin made of high-quality materials.

Technology & Safety

Technology and safety are two important parameters of any vehicle. The 2018 Audi A7 comes standard with an MMI infotainment system featuring Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, two USB ports, navigation and voice recognition. The system has a user-friendly interface to control all the technology. For safety, you have features like a rearview camera, parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, lane change assist, Pre Sense Basic and Pre Sense Rear.

The 2018 Porsche Panamera has an upper hand with an upgraded infotainment system including Porsche Communication Management interface, Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, and navigation. You will find it extremely easy to navigate the controls with buttons and knobs. Apart from a rearview camera, there are front and rear parking sensors as well.


Speaking of performance, the base 2018 Audi A7 model comes with a turbocharged V6 engine delivering an output of 340 HP, with a gas mileage of 29 mpg on the highways and 20 mpg in the city. With the 2018 Porsche Panamera, you have plenty of engine choices ranging from 330 HP turbocharged V6 to 550-HP V8 powering the Turbo trims. In spite of base engine having the least configuration in the lineup, it delivers quick acceleration with plenty of power for all driving situations.

The Bottom Line

Both the Audi A7 and Porsche Panamera have a sleek interior with a contemporary design, but the latter has a couple of high-performance variants. Also, Panamera is among the best in its class, in terms of technology. If you are considering the overall aspect, the Panamera, although priced higher than A7, offers a better value as a complete package.
