Whatever you do, please don’t call the new 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo a station wagon. Even describing it as a hatchback is off-limits. I can understand why you might be tempted, since the roofline is ever so slightly stretched in order to accommodate a smaller fifth passenger. But this is not your grandfather’s wagon, not least because – and I know I’m not the only one to think this way – the second-gen Panamera is absolutely gorgeous to look at. That means, even if I have to call it a “five-door sedan with a lift-back,” I’m prepared to declare that the Panamera’s “Sport Turismo” variant is one of the sleekest, most beautiful and luxurious ways to get around today. All for just $6,000 more than the regular car.

The Panamera Sport Turismo is only offered in all-wheel drive variants: the Panamera 4, E-Hybrid, 4S, and at the top the Turbo Sport Turismo. Pricing starts at $97,250, $105,050, $110,250, and finally $155,050 respectively. The entry-level car has a single-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 with 330 HP, while the hybrid 2.9-liter V6 offers combined horsepower of 462 HP.
