2016 Mercedes-Benz CLS vs 2016 Porsche Panamera

German luxury, like Italian performance, is a standard that the rest of the automotive world can only dream about. Mercedes-Benz and Porsche are right at the height of this fame and offer similar, yet individual competition in every category. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLS vs the Porsche Panamera is a perfect example of this, especially considering the unique body design. Both the CLS and the Panamera sport designs that combine the coupe and the sedan by shortening the trunk, increasing interior space, and dropping a powerful engine under the hood. 

The CLS550 and the Panamera have much in common. They are about three inches apart in length, less than an inch apart in wheelbase, and they share the exact same height. So what is the difference other than a more expensive badge on the Panamera? Actually, the biggest incongruences between the two cars pertains to the fact that the CLS is tailored more for performance in comparison to the luxury focus of the Panamera.

CLS550 Performance

The difference in general price between the two models means that for the same price, you can significantly upgrade your CLS Coupe to include all the top of the line technologies that would cost an extra suburban home in the Porsche. The 4.7-liter biturbo V8 engine is one of the biggest indicators of this. The CLS550 features a surplus of 100 horsepower over the Porsche and still costs less than the base-model Panamera. Additionally, the CLS550 comes standard with a 9-speed automatic transmission where the Panamera only offers a 7-speed automatic transmission. It is because of these essential performance technologies that the 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLS overshadows the 2016 Porsche Panamera.

For less money, you get more power, faster acceleration, and more fun behind the wheel when you opt for the CLS. If you have any questions about the 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLS, come to Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale today to take one for a test drive.
