Porsche has launched the Panamera Diesel Edition: Gran Turismo in India. The car not only features a powerful 250bhp diesel powertrain, but also comes equipped with a significantly extensive list of features which will be offered as standard.
Some of its standard features include 19-inch alloy wheels that feature the same design as those found on the Panamera Turbo II, wheel hub covers with a coloured Porsche logo, and bi-xenon head-lamps equipped with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS). On the inside, the car features dual Black and Luxor Beige toned part-leather upholstered seats, Porsche crests embossed into all head rests, a sporty steering wheel unit, and door sill guards with ‘Edition’ lettering.
The Panamera Diesel Edition also comes with a standard Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system with a 7-inch touchscreen which allows you to access and control audio, satellite navigation, and telephony functions. What makes the intelligent audio system all the more enjoyable is the Bose Surround System which pumps out 585-watts of sound from a 14-speaker setup.
Additional features that will be available as standard on the Panamera Diesel include Adaptive Air Suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Park Assist (front and rear) including a rear camera, electric sunroof with slide and tilt function, soft close doors, 4-zone HVAC, and Power steering Plus. This collection of features that Porsche has included on the Panamera Diesel Edition indicates that the designers have put in a lot of thought and effort into making the car comfortable for all occupants including the driver.
Speaking on the occasion of the Panamera Diesel’s launch in India, Pavan Shetty, Director of Porsche India, summarised the essence of the Panamera Diesel in his own words- ” The Panamera Diesel Edition is a thrilling four-door sports car that provides an abundance of driving pleasure, combined with styling accents that typify this specific model from Porsche. The range of additional equipment available as standard, makes this premium model a truly attractive offering for our enthusiasts.”
Priced at 1.04 Crore (ex-showroom, Maharashtra), the Porsche Panamera Diesel Edition is now available for purchase from Porsche dealerships, across the country. [Source: auto.ndtv]
