If you haven’t heard, Ford has announced the end of sedan production. The average consumer is not interested in a sedan, because crossovers and SUVs are the prevailing trend.
But for people like us, a proper luxury car with incredible power is the best of both worlds. Give us a few turbos and All Wheel Drive, and we’ll sell a kidney for a new daily driver. So our friends at DragTimes Russia decided to compare the hottest AWD 4-seaters to help us make an informed purchase.
The trifecta begins with a Ferrari GTC4Lusso. A hot hatchback from Maranello, this plush 4-seater is powered by their 6.3-liter V12 masterpiece. It offers 681 horsepower and 514 lb-ft of torque, which is shared between a front transaxle and a rear mounted 7-speed dual clutch. Similar in operation to the Ferrari FF, the system has been upgraded with rear wheel steering.
Up next is a Mercedes-Benz E63S AMG. The Meanest E Class to date, it packs a 4.0 liter V8 and twin turbos to make 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft. Maximum torque arrives at only 2,500 rpm, and it is sent to the intuitive 4MATIC+ All Wheel Drive system.
Last but not least is the Porsche Panamera Turbo. Also sporting a 4.0 liter V8 with twin turbos, it is rated at 550 horsepower and 567 lb-ft of torque. Much like the AMG, it also arrives with air suspension, a dual clutch transmission, and All Wheel Drive.
Our dealers have great incentives on 2018 models because the 19’s keep coming in. So tell us which one you would choose in the comments below and stay with us for more DragTimes action!
