Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Review 2023

The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is an electric sports estate car that strikes a great balance between sustainability and performance. A slightly larger version of the original Taycan, the Cross Turismo is perfect for those who want good performance but also need to keep the family happy. 

Rivals to the Taycan Cross Turismo include the Tesla Model S, Mercedes EQE, Audi e-tron GT, and the non-electric BMW M3 Saloon.  

Our Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo review covers:

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Key Features

  • Unique styling with a large rear-end 
  • Luxurious interior with loads of premium features 
  • 446-litre boot and 84-litre front boot
  • Dual electric motors in various power outputs 
  • Four trims available 

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Pros and Cons:


  • Rapid performance 
  • More practical than other Taycan versions 
  • Superb interior quality 


  • Optional extras are ridiculously expensive
  • Real-world range isn't great 
  • Rear visibility is limited 

Design, Practicality and Boot Space

The Taycan Cross Turismo is like a bigger version of the normal Taycan. It comes with four-spot design headlights, a flat roof, and a rounded rear end. It's a unique design, and whether you'll like it or not depends on personal preference. 

Like all Porsche's, there's plenty of space for two passengers in the front, but the Taycan Cross Turismo stands out for its rear space. It can easily fit two six-footers in the rear, and the square roofline gives passengers much more headroom than you'd get in the Audi e-tron GT

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo exterior

Open the boot, and you get 446 litres of luggage space that's square in shape, but there's also an 84-litre front boot under the bonnet. For a Porsche, this is quite generous, and combined, it exceeds the BMW M3 Saloon. You can also fold the rear seats flat to extend space to 1,212 litres. 

Interior and Trims

The interior of the Taycan Cross Turismo is fantastic. It's packed full of premium materials, and everything you touch feels upmarket and excellently built. It's certainly better than the interior of the Mercedes EQE

On the dash, you get a dual touchscreen setup. The higher 10.9-inch screen controls the infotainment system, such as navigation and communication, while the lower 8.4-inch centre console controls climate functions. 

Behind the wheel, there's a 16.8-inch curved display that houses the digital instrument cluster and control panels for the lighting and chassis functions. There's also an optional head-up display available that projects the information into the driver's field of vision. 

Four trim levels are available for the Taycan Cross Turismo: 4, 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S. 

4 has 19-inch aero wheels, dual-zone climate control, LED headlights, a partial leather interior, heated front seats, eight-way electric front seats, cruise control, park assist, and a powered tailgate. 

4S has Taycan S aero wheels, red brake calipers, brushed aluminium door sills, silver exterior styling, and a more powerful engine. 

Turbo adds 20-inch wheels, 14-way electric front seats with a memory package, a Bose surround sound system, a smooth leather interior, heated rear seats, 

Turbo S has adaptive 18-way electric sports seats, a matt carbon interior trim pack, a two-tone leather-free interior, and a GT multifunction sports steering wheel. 

Power and Performance

Under the bonnet, you get a 93.4kWh battery that's paired with two electric motors that power the front and rear wheels. Each trim level has a slightly different powertrain, but all come with all-wheel drive and automatic transmission. 

All units can charge at speeds of up to 270kW, which allows it to charge 10-80% in around 20 minutes. However, it'll take around 13 hours from a 7kW home charger. 

The entry-level trim has a power output of 476PS and achieves 0-62mph in 5.1 seconds, while the 4S increases power to 571PS and achieves 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds. 

One of these two is our pick of the bunch. They're nowhere near the asking price of the two range toppers and still return rapid electric performance. 

For the Turbo, power output is increased to 680PS and it shoots from 0-62mph in 3.3 seconds, while the range-topping Turbo S has 761PS and does 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds! Yes, just 2.9 seconds! 

The two entry-level variants achieve a range of up to 304 miles; the Turbo drops down to 301 miles, and the Turbo S has an official range of 285 miles. 

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo interior

On the road, the Taycan Cross Turismo is great in most conditions. Around town is probably where it's most tricky to drive. Visibility isn't great, and steering is a bit heavy, meaning that manoeuvring tight car parks and streets can be tricky. Its standout feature around town is its air suspension, which you can raise and lower whenever you please. 

As you get to motorway speeds, the Taycan Cross Turismo comes into its own. The electric powertrains get you up to 70mph with absolute ease, and when you get there, road and wind noise is kept to a minimum. 

On a country road, the Taycan Cross Turismo is equally as exciting. It's stable and agile when cornering, and the dual-motor setup gives you plenty of road grip. If you select 'Sport' or 'Sport Plus' on the drive mode, you get extra weight, which adds further confidence when cornering.
