Comparison Review

Convenience
The Porsche Panamera requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is somewhat more expensive than the Porsche Panamera. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Panamera.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is much slimmer than the Porsche Panamera, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is slightly shorter than the Porsche Panamera, which may make it easier to park.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Porsche Panamera.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche Panamera.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Porsche Panamera. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has significantly less cargo room than the Porsche Panamera, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
