Diesel Car Of The Year 2012, Porsche Panamera Diesel

Diesel Car
Itís a wonder how Porsche can make a diesel engine not behave like one: you donít get any trademark diesel clatter, it performs with gusto and the transmission is one heck of a seamless operator. In fact, the diesel sounds like the worthiest Panamera in the lot; especially after you consider the range factor. Its cabin remains one of the best, whether as a driver or a passenger.
Itís none too shabby in the handling department too, despite its size. Emitting only 172 g/km, it falls in the neutral band under the CEVS. A mileage-munching diesel that drives exactly like how a sports car should Ė summarizes why the Panamera brings home the medal in this category.
