Audi RS7 vs. Porsche Panamera

As part of my coverage of the LA Auto I remarked at how visually stunning the RS7 is inside and out, especially to its sibling the Porsche Panamera. I ve been a fan of the S7/RS7 and equally as a detractor of the Porsche Panamera and it s butt styling, but I thought I d try to these two cars while my biases as an Audi enthusiast and paying closest attention to data and facts. After a review, the facts don t lie and s poiler Audi wins. 


Edmunds recently compared the two side by side and the Audi had a quarter mile 11.5 versus 11.9 as well as a 0-60 time (3.4 versus 3.7), so +1 to the RS7 in terms of . In braking the cars were a heat, with the RS7 slightly out the Porsche but let s be generous and call a tie. Handling wise the cars also a dead heat on the pad, but with a slight to the RS7 again when it comes to But most importantly, the editors of had way more to say about the RS7 and the thrill it while driving, quoting it feels like a much car and The list of other cars accelerate with this of effortless urgency and with the seemingly limitless wave of is a very short one while the reviews are shorter and less

The only downside noted the RS7 was a hint of understeer, but otherwise the seems to have greatly the Edmunds reviewers on a subjective too.

Continuing to look at only, the RS7 also boasts 560 40 more than the 2014 Turbo (520 hp) and 10 more the 2012 Turbo S (550 The Turbo S is slated to return with 570hp which regain the edge, but at that of HP the difference of 10 either way does not much of a difference. The torque are a slightly different story the Panamera Turbo S being the with 553 to Audi s 516 ft/lbs.

Winner: Audi RS7


none of the cars above are the RS7 is the relative bargain at nearly cheaper than the Turbo and less than the Turbo S of the Panamera. They all have warranties (48 months/50,000 miles), the Audi comes with the 12 months or 5,000 miles of included. Most importantly is cost of ownership even if you the Porsche and Audi had the same costs (unlikely, as Porsche and labor are usually much expensive), the RS7 gets significantly gas mileage at 16/27 versus for the Turbo and 15/23 for the Turbo S.

Winner: Audi RS7


It s to judge this one impartially, but let s the features are comparable and that have good navigation comfortable seats, and both you equally in terms of appearance and the fit and making the primary decision which is roomier on the inside. at the data, the RS7 is the clear winner for comfort and luggage space, the Panamera Turbo wins for headroom and legroom. Depending on height and if you have backseat often, this may or may not lead you to one over the other.

Subjectively I prefer the interior of the Audi the Porsche, but in effort to be fair let s call this one a draw. above is the Panamera GTS interior is the sportiest and most comparable on the whereas the RS7 interior is on the left.

Winner: Draw/Tie

one is impossible to judge without subjective, but let s give it a shot. The is lighter, they have the drag coefficient, and the Audi has a wheel and tire package. The overall width height are the same, but the Audi weights a over 100 lbs less so a slight to the Audi although it s very

Throwing all of this objective out the window, the Audi RS7 is definitely the in aesthetics. The Porsche is undeniably and has one of the worst rear end shapes I ve seen. The front end of the Porsche is a bit awkward and doesn t wear the as well as the 911 models, and the side is ruined by that bulbous end. I d go as far as to call the Panamera the Aztek of Porsche, and makes me why the owners of these cars don t sell the car for something nicer the RS7) but perhaps this is me

Even if the Panamera weren t so it d still have it s work against the RS7. It has one of the sleekest, body lines ever on a sedan. It looks great all angles, has a menacing front and despite the RS trim it doesn t over the top or boy racer in any regard.

It s yet aggressive, exactly how the RS models be.

Winner: Audi RS7


The RS7 is the winner in both objective like performance, price, economy, back seat space, and curb weight. regards to subjective factors, the RS7 is the better looker, and the interiors are comparable. It s pretty hard to the $50-70k price jump for the Turbo/Turbo S over the RS7 given facts, as the Audi would be the winner even if they priced the same.
