2023 Porsche Panamera vs. Bentley Continental GT: Luxury & Customization

In addition to providing exceptional power and handling, the Bentley Continental GT takes luxury and customization to the next level. When you choose the 2023 Continental GT over the 2023 Panamera, you can expect more in terms of:

  • Wheel Size: The Bentley Continental GT starts with 21-inch wheels for smooth riding and enhanced grip on the Arcadia roads. The Porsche Panamera only offers 19-inch wheels to start, with further upgrades requiring extra cost. 
  • Safety Technology: While both the Porsche Panamera and Bentley Continental GT come with a full suite of driver assistance features, only the 2023 Continental GT comes standard with a rear cross-traffic warning, a blind-spot warning, a semi-automated parking system, and a rear passenger safe-exit system which can stop the rear doors from opening when traffic is approaching from behind. 
  • Convertible Option: The Porsche Panamera offers drivers different body styles, but all are closed-top sedans or wagons. When you choose the Bentley Continental GT, you’ll have both a traditional four-door coupe style and a stunning convertible option, allowing you to feel the wind in your hair. 
  • Customization: The personalization of your Bentley doesn’t stop at the body style you choose. With more than 80 exterior paints available and a plethora of customization options inside the cabin, the Bentley Continental GT far outpaces the 2023 Panamera’s limited exterior paint and interior leather selections.
