2017 Porsche Panamera vs. 2016 BMW 550 Gran Turismo Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Porsche Panamera you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Porsche Panamera will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Porsche Panamera will cost more in transportation costs than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo.

Dimensions
The Porsche Panamera is a little wider than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Porsche Panamera, which is slightly longer than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Porsche Panamera doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 550 Gran Turismo.

Handling
The Porsche Panamera has a smaller turning radius than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Porsche Panamera and the BMW 550 Gran Turismo.

Utility
The Porsche Panamera has less seating than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, making the BMW 550 Gran Turismo the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Porsche Panamera has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Porsche Panamera comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 550 Gran Turismo.
