The main reason you’ll be looking at the Taycan Cross Turismo over its arguably sleeker saloon sister car is the added practicality that comes from the estate version’s redesigned rear end. However, the Taycan Sport Turismo is just as roomy and is cheaper to buy in most cases than the Cross Turismo.

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo interior space, storage & comfort

Inside, like the regular Taycan, there’s plenty of storage throughout the Cross Turismo’s cabin; up front, you get a set of cupholders, and under the armrest behind these is a storage area, while you get another space for bulkier objects located underneath the lower, central touchscreen.

Again, like the regular Taycan, the Cross Turismo comes as standard with four seats, however, you can go for a five-seat configuration as an option. Space in the rear is great, despite the low roofline. Headroom has been increased by 47mm over the regular Taycan, but legroom is no better despite the car’s 'foot garages' – areas where the battery pack has been sculpted to supposedly reduce intrusion in certain areas of the cabin.

Boot space

The biggest and most obvious difference between the regular Taycan and this shooting-brake sister car is the amount of boot space on offer. The Cross Turismo has an extra 80 litres of load capacity, up to 446 from 366 in the regular Taycan. Plus, the rear seats can now be folded down to offer 1,212 litres of space in total. There’s also a 84-litre ‘frunk’ under the bonnet, which is a handy storage compartment ideal for keeping your charging cable in, as opposed to it permanently taking up room in the boot.
