EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR
This year, Panamera is getting a well-deserved redesign. Second generation of this sedan is coming with some great changes and improvements that will make the new model stand out amongst the competition. One of the changes include a new platform, Modular Standard Platform. Thanks to the use of the lightweight materials such as aluminum and magnesium, new model is almost 200 pounds lighter than its predecessor.

We will also see a new pair of headlights that now have oval shape. The cabin of the new 2016 Porsche Panamera will not disappoint either. It is equipped with a lot of premium materials including leather and it comes with some of the latest technological features.
