Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo boot space, seating & practicality
The Cross Turismo's added practicality over the regular Taycan might swing it for potential customers, with an increase in both boot space and passenger room

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.
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, for an extra £336 you can go for a five-seat configuration. 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 intrusions in certain areas of the cabin.
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 1,171 litres of space in total. There’s also a ‘frunk’, which is a handy storage compartment ideal for keeping your charging cable in, as opposed to it permanently taking up room in the boot.
