3rd-gen Porsche Panamera priced at Rs 1.68 crore in India

Currently, Porsche has only listed the Panamera V6 on its Indian website.

The third-generation Porsche Panamera made its global debut earlier this week. The new model is priced at Rs 1.68 crore in India, and bookings are set to commence soon.

The new Panamera gets subtle styling changes that are more evolutionary than revolutionary. The car has a different front bumper with larger vents and a reprofiled headlamp unit. The rear end features sleek, wraparound LED tail lights with an LED light bar in between.

Inside, besides the standard touchscreen infotainment system in the centre, the new Panamera gets an optional 10.9-inch display on the passenger side. The car gets a digital instrument cluster and a new 3-spoke steering wheel. The gear lever is now mounted on the steering column.

Currently, Porsche has listed the Panamera V6 on its Indian website. This variant uses a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine that develops 343 BHP and 500 Nm. The engine is mated to an 8-speed PDK automatic transmission that sends power to the rear axle. Porsche claims a 0-100 km/h time of 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 270 km/h.

The latest generation Panamera comes with a fully active suspension that controls the car’s dive, pitch and roll characteristics. However, entry-level variants like the V6 get a semi-active air suspension similar to the previous generation.
