2021 BMW 6-Series vs. 2021 Porsche Panamera


The 2021 BMW 6-Series is the largest convertible that BMW produces and thus its engineers have ensured that this is a car that retains its sporty heritage despite its size. The 2021 6-Series is an extraordinary car to drive and remains functional despite its two-door design. Inside the 2021 6-Series, you get creature comforts as well as a range of tech that makes any drive incredibly fun. When it comes to the 2021 Porsche Panamera, owners get an equally large range of tech and safety features. The 2021 Panamera however suffers from a rather cramped cabin making the rear seat an uncomfortable place to be. Here is a comparison between these two cars and a verdict on which one is the best.

Design & Style

When it comes to exterior design, there are few large convertibles that can beat the 2021 BMW 6-Series. The 2021 model comes with a new variety of sports wheels and rims that enhance its sporty heritage. The 6-Series features a sporty stance as well as a road-hugging body design that helps keep this sports car firmly grounded on the road. With a tastefully designed interior to complete the look, the 2021 6-Series is a beautiful car to behold. When it comes to the 2021 Porsche Panamera, buyers get a stylish sports car with that iconic Porsche look that is a sure head-turner. The Panamera is equally beautiful inside with premium materials used throughout the interior. Space is a problem however and the rear seat is cramped with little provision in the trunk for luggage.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 BMW 6-Series offers drivers plenty of standard tech and safety features that make the 2021 6-Series such a fun car to drive. This range of technology includes a great audio system from Bang & Olufsen as well as a number of other fantastic features. Also, the standard is smartphone integration, blind-spot monitoring among others. When it comes to the Porsche Panamera, buyers can expect to get a 12-inch infotainment system that sadly does not work as well as Porsche says it does. Response is sluggish and it takes a while to figure out what command does what.


Under the hood, the 2021 6-Series features a turbocharged V6 engine that is connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission. This makes for an extraordinary performance. The 2021 6-Series glides along the road, thanks to a fantastic suspension system that keeps surface imperfections away from the cabin. The 2021 Porsche Panamera on the other hand is motivated by a 2.6-liter turbocharged V6 engine that also gives this sports car excellent power. Cornering and handling in the Panamera are also excellent.

The Bottom Line

When compared against each other, the 2021 6-Series and the 2021 Porsche Panamera are extraordinary cars that are well built and offer great rides. The difference lies between these two sports sedans is subtle but important. For example, the 6-Series offers greater functionality thanks to its spacious cabin and luggage space. This makes the 6-Series a clear winner when compared to the 2021 6-Series.
