I love my primary daily the Macan GTS but with the infant seat and tight back seat room, it makes more sense to go larger. Wife has a larger car but when we take mine I get nothing but complaints from Family members whom do no not sugar coat anything.
I am probably going to test drive one in few weeks. The rear seats are larger but only two seats in the back. I'm not even sure if that works at all with a baby seat not to mention a smaller trunk.
Anyone know if the Panamera is family friendly or not?
Maybe waiting for the next Cayenne or SQ7 maybe better idea?
We actually test drove a Panny a week ago and it did not fit our criteria for "furry friends".....
Wife and I have two border collies and, to be honest, it was horrible for them. They did not get into the Panny but is stunk from our perspective.
Case in point, We have an Audi A5 as a daily driver and it is nice for both the wife and I but, the lack of headroom in the rear seats is a PITA for the dogs.
Granted if you are going to put children in the back, with car seats they will be MORE than fine. But in a year or two/three.....will they be happy in the back?
IMO if you are looking for a "family car", the Panamera will be a disappointment....heck we wouldn't want to put both of our 40 lb Border collies in it for a trip that was for any length of time.
Is the Panny nice....heck YEAH! Awesome car! But we get more "flexible room" in our 2006 VW Jetta than the Panny.
Suggestion, put the child seats in the Macan you already have and see if the kids can "kick" their feet freely. If so, then it works for now. If not then look at another larger vehicle.
This is under the assumption you only have two kiddos and no one else.
As far as the Q7 and variants, it is a nice vehicle...more space but not as nice as the Macan you already have......be certain to see just what you need.
