The Porsche Taycan was first unveiled in 2015 as the Porsche Mission E Concept. Three years later he was joined by the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Concept: a station wagon with more ground clearance and some rough plastic on the sides. It soon became clear that not only the Mission E would go into production (as a Taycan), but also the Cross Turismo. And this is it finally.
Adjustable ride height and large trunk
The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo – with standard air suspension – has an adjustable ride height and can be installed up to 3 centimeters higher than the regular Taycan (with the optional off-road package). Behind the large boot lid is a luggage compartment of 446 liters (366 liters for the Taycan), which can be increased to 1212 liters by flattening the rear seats. An extra 82 liters can fit in the front of the ‘frunk’.
More space in the second row of seats
Due to the body shape of the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo, the roof is more horizontal than on the Taycan, which has a four-door coupé body. This means good news for rear passengers. They gain nearly 5 centimeters of headroom. Otherwise, the cabin of the Cross Turismo is unchanged from the Taycan.
Only available with all-wheel drive
The delivery program of the Taycan Cross Turismo is known. Just like the Taycan, it will be on the market in four variants for the time being; Taycan (476 hp, 456 km), Taycan 4S (571 hp, 452 km), Taycan Turbo (680 hp, 452 km) and Taycan Turbo S (761 hp, 419 km). The only difference is the basic version: it has rear-wheel drive in the Taycan and four-wheel drive in the Cross Turismo.
From 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds
And to come back to the dog from the intro. It fits in the back of course, but will not appreciate it if your power pedal is floored. The Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S go to 100 km / h in 3.3 and 2.9 seconds respectively. It is therefore also important to firmly secure the bicycles on the back of the optional bicycle carrier.
Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo from 97,400 euros
Naturally, the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is more expensive than the sedan version. The entry-level model costs 10,000 euros more (97,400 against 87,200 euros). With the other versions, the price difference gradually decreases to only 1500 euros. Porsche wants 116,000 euros for the Taycan 4S Cross Turismo, and 159,300 and 193,200 euros for the Turbo and Turbo S respectively.
