The front seats with integrated headrests offer a high degree of comfort and hold your body firm during cornering, without restricting your freedom of movement. Seat adjustment is fully electric as standard with controls on both the driver and front passenger sides for seat height, squab and backrest angle, and fore/aft position. A driver memory package, available as an option, enables the driver’s seat and exterior mirror positions to be saved and restored automatically.
Optional 14-way power seats with memory package (standard in the Panamera Turbo) for driver and front passenger offer even more functionality. In addition to featuring an electric steering column adjustment facility, the package includes electric four-way lumbar support, electric seat squab length adjustment and personal memory settings for seat, steering wheel, PCM and mirror positions.
The courtesy lights (LEDs in the exterior mirrors) are a component of the driver memory package and 14-way power seats with memory package. ISOFIX child seat mounting points are available as an option for the front passenger seat in conjunction with the deactivation function for the passenger airbag.
The optional adaptive Sports seats have firmer – yet still comfortable – upholstery and provide even better lateral support thanks to the raised side bolsters on the seat squab and backrest.
Featuring 18-way electric adjustment, the seats can be optimally adapted to meet your needs in terms of seat height, squab and backrest angle, squab length, fore/aft adjustment and four-way lumbar support. The steering column is also electrically adjustable. In addition, the side bolsters on the seat squab and backrest are independently adjustable for added comfort over long distances or precision lateral support on winding roads. Also included is the personal memory for the driver and front passenger seats (including lumbar support), the steering wheel and the driver’s exterior mirror.
The rear compartment has two fully independent seats with plenty of leg- and headroom, even for taller passengers. They provide good lateral support, even during fast cornering, with no compromise on comfort. Between the seats is a folding armrest with a handy storage compartment. The backrests fold down individually with a ratio of 40:60 to increase storage capacity or to accommodate larger items. The split is 40:20:40 in conjunction with the optional ski bag. With the optional large centre console, the backrests can still be folded separately while the console itself remains fixed in position.
Eight-way power seats are available as an option for the rear in any of the Panamera models. In addition to the electric backrest adjustment, seat squab length adjustment and lumbar support functions, there is a facility to adjust the front passenger seat from the rear. When specified in conjunction with seat ventilation, the eight-way power seats (rear) feature automatic comfort headrests (p. 90). In conjunction with the adaptive Sports seats in the front, Sports seats are also fitted in the rear and feature a sporty seam design and elevated side bolsters.
ISOFIX child seat mounting points are fitted as standard on both rear seats in all Panamera models.
The front seats of the Panamera S models, the Panamera GTS and the Panamera Turbo feature seat heating as standard (optional for the Panamera and Panamera 4). This heats the seat squab and backrest to a pleasant temperature. In the Panamera Turbo, the seats in the rear also have a heating function (optional for all other models).
On request, we can equip the front seats, indeed all four seats, with seat ventilation (only in conjunction with seat heating). A slipstream effect is produced by active ventilation of the perforated seat centre and backrest and by passive aeration at the side bolsters. This evaporates perspiration moisture and therefore makes for a comfortable seating environment, even in hot weather. Seat heating and seat ventilation can be adjusted independently to any one of three power levels.
