The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo will be one of the vehicles gracing the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The sports car will be unveiled by Porsche together with the Panamera 4, Panamera 4S, Panamera 4E Hybrid and the Panamera Turbo.
The concept version of the Panamera Sport Turismo was introduced around five years ago. The unit was first shown at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Basically, the production version of the car will carry most of the styling elements seen in its concept model.
According to a report, the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo will offer four engine options. The power units that customers can choose from include a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6, 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6, 2.9-liter engine paired with a 136 bhp electric motor, and last but not least is a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8.
Among the notable features of the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo are the Porsche Advanced Cockpit, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, Porsche Communications Management, electronic stabilisation control, Porsche InnoDrive, rear axle steering, AWD adaptive air suspension, adaptive air spoiler, Porsche Traction Management and many more.
The adaptive spoiler function of the car allows three settings to choose from depending on the driver settings and the speed of the auto. The feature is capable of generating a down-force of as much as 50 kg.
Moreover, it is the first time for the Panamera range to offer a three-seating capacity at the rear. There is also an option to get four seats with electric adjustment operation for the auto.
The 2017 Geneva Motor Show kicks off this Tuesday on March 7, 2017. The event runs until the 19th of the month. So watch out during those days for the Panamera Sport Turismo.
The first deliveries of the Panamera Sport Turismo to buyers will begin in October this year.

Opel changed its mind about the venue for the debut of the Crossland X. The automaker has finally decided to introduce the vehicle live to the public for the first time at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. It should be noted the company stated earlier that it will be keeping the unit away from the event to focus on its Insignia range.
Based on sources, here are the key features of the Crossland X:
1. Model Year
The vehicle will carry a 2018 model year when it comes out.
The Crossland X is classified as a crossover utility vehicle. It possesses the same platform found in Peugot’s 2008 compact SUV. Unlike the more rugged Mokka X, which is built for off-roading, the Crossland X is designed for urban driving.
Not much has been officially revealed yet about the engine of the Crossland X. However, according to a source, it will have two engine trims. One will be packing 1.2-liter petrol unit and the other is a 1.6-liter diesel unit.
The Crossland X is 4,212 mm in length, 1,765 mm wide and 1,590 mm tall. Its measurements are more than the Mokka X.
The Crossland X is more spacious than the Mokka X making it a nice option for a family vehicle. Among the notable features found in the interior of the auto are sliding rear seats, climate control system, cruise control system, touchscreen infotainment system and compatibility with either the Apple CarPlay or the Android Auto.
The Crossland X is expected to appear in showrooms in summer this year. It will likely cost less than the £17,640 price tag of the Mokka X.
The crossover utility vehicle of Opel will rival the Renault Captur and the Peugeot 2008 when it comes out in the market.
