Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo 2021 review - better than my RS6?! 😱
Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson! bit.ly/-Help-Me-carwow

This is the all-new Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo!

It’s the estate version of the all-electric Taycan, and it’s the first all-electric EV estate in the world (well, if you exclude the MG 5…)! The question is, should you choose it over the regular Taycan?

Well if you’re looking for styling changes, there isn’t much to see here! The interior’s almost exactly the same, and when it comes to the exterior, there are only a few minor cosmetic updates to be found to help it looks a bit more 'off-roady', apparently.

But then again, if you’re choosing the Cross Turismo, you’re probably most interested in the extra space you’ll get! And to be honest… it’s not loads, with 446 litres available at the rear. That’s only around 40 more than you get in the regular Taycan!

So is that a bit less space than you expected? Well thankfully there’s one area where the Taycan Cross Turismo doesn’t disappoint - the performance! There are a handful of options available, but the range-topper is the Turbo S, which delivers 761hp and an epic 1,050Nm of torque!

So, how high has Porsche set the EV estate bar? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

    That might be in top 3 worst interiors i have seen in my life. they took 4 tablets and duck-taped them to the fucking car. Wtf is this shit. I don't want to take my eyes off the road to chance the music, or climate. Most retarded trend ever. Plus it looks cheap as fuck. Mazda 3 interior look 100 times better. And the new mercedes interior looks like it was created by god compared to this.

    has anyone else noticed that Mat Watson over pronounces the 'g' in words that end with 'ing'......

  • acchaladka

    So, a wagon with 446 litres of space...I’m thinking of our two adults and two kids, dog, and camping equipment for the week...that’s going to be a bit tight. I’m a Porsche person but would like a boxy back end for another few bags or things like yes, skis.

  • Gary Walker

    Prefer the looks to the 'normal' Taycan - it's its own thing, a fast estate and not trying to resemble a bloated 911 the way other non-911 Prosches often do. Also, while the drag races are fun and bring in big viewing figures, it's the reviews like this that I find the best thing about the channel. And no doubt suits carwow themselves most! Even if there's no way I'd ever be in the market for cars like this wonderful Taycan X-Turismo.

  • Coyote

    Turbo ..Really where's that then?

  • bwy844

    No review I have ever seen on EVs have ever computed the total cost. As an example how much would an overnight charge be in a normal household in the UK, what is the running&service charges. Literature on the subject suggest that a medium size Ev will become cost effective after 100.000 km resulting in a massive amount of people loosing the entire car-worths of value due accelerated battery technology in the future, little focus is on that fact. If this channel is supposed to be taken serious and not just for fun, I suggest that what I described comes natural in any-car review. Thank you.

    the brand new PORSCHE Taycan Cross TOURISMO Turbo S (950) 4WD + 1.0 in. Lift 106 kWh i-Motor 5-Dr e-Sports Estate (RHD) seriously needs a 1.0 in. - 1.5 in. suspension lift & underbody skid plates for safer off road stints now & then!!!

    1) No electric car deserves 100 k 2) This Taycan is even more poor in stylistic unity ... than Panamera. So 👎

  • FlanagansRage

    Damn that thing looks cool

  • Steve King
    Steve King

    1) Maroon is never a good option. 2) Calling it a turbo is wrong just like everything else that used to have 'turbo' stuck on it for cache in the 80s. Turbo sunglasses, anyone? 3) I still want one, different colour & delete the badge.

    'I want that one' I said and my bank manager could not stop laugh at me - - - he is still laughing. I'll get the toy version and can't wait until it gets released.

  • geffel

    I LOVE that EV makers are using words like 'turbo' to help people understand the equivalence to dinosaur cars. And even better I love that the kind of people who will hate EVs no matter what, no matter how good they are, explode into little bits of snowflake at the use of such words.

  • geffel

    To be clear, EV owners mostly charge at home overnight or at work, or both. And if you've got your shit together you have solar panels on your house and battery back ups that allow you to never use the grid ever for anything. Like myself.

  • geffel

    That is Captain Scarlet's car colour.

  • geffel

    Of course it's better. It's electric.

  • Mr11ESSE111

    Yes it's "better " but you will recharge it every hour if you push throttle and recharge will be longer then driving

    Is it just me or does it kinda look like a focus from the side?

  • Scanti_Audi

    RS6 IS THE QUEEN!!!!💚


    wagon, sedan, estate, saloon.. doesn't matter, it's a 150k disgustingly indulgent car and everyone will hate you for driving it. Including me.

  • Mr11ESSE111

    slow and expensive with shitty range and range are calculated with relative slow driving

  • Mr11ESSE111

    450km range range?' wtf is that?? its nothing and it is range only if you drive it not above 80-90kmh so dont push throtlle on autobahn on 200kmh because you will run out of electricity in 15-25minutes

  • Mr11ESSE111

    Tesla Plaid S will be much better vehicle with around same price but with 1000-1100+hp and 2,2sec 0-100kmh ,320kmh and 700+km range (if you drive it around 90kmh )
