Safety and Driver Assistance Rating: Safety and Driver Assistance

*Due to lack of NHTSA and IIHS crash testing.

Safety and Driver Assistance

The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo comes standard with a bevy of airbags, but buyers will have to pay extra for most active-safety features.

Crash Test Results

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the nonprofit, independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) evaluate vehicles for crashworthiness in the United States. NHTSA assigns cars an overall rating out of five stars. IIHS uses a different set of tests, grades cars on a scale of Good to Poor, and awards the vehicles that perform best across its tests with Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ honors, the latter of which requires that the subject’s automated forward-collision-braking system performs well.

Airbags, Child Seats, and Spare Tire Location

Despite its four doors and more practical wagon body style, hauling young children is not the Panamera Sport Turismo’s forte, as installing a child seat is a time-consuming affair. The Porsche’s child-seat anchors are hidden deep within a valley of the seat bottom, and the most effective way to latch the seat into place is to feel around aimlessly until the latch clicks onto the anchor. This is easier said than done: the rear seat’s bolsters limit the amount of available space one has to attempt this task. Once locked into place, the child seat will need a shim because the bottom of the Panamera’s standard bench seat is angled steeply upward.

Active-Safety Features

Porsche makes its customers pay for most active-safety features. Still, the brand offers a number of innovative options, including a night-vision system and Porsche’s InnoDrive adaptive cruise control. InnoDrive uses navigation data, along with radar and video feeds, to accelerate, brake, and select the right gear in preparation for conditions as far as 1.8 miles ahead.
