Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo reliability & safety rating

Although Porsche’s electric estate car hasn't been given a Euro NCAP crash-test rating just yet, its sister car’s five-star score and Porsche’s track record are good signs

Overall rating

4.5 out of 5

Reliability & safety rating rating

4.0 out of 5

While the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo has yet to go through Euro NCAP crash-testing, we have no doubt it’ll be as safe as the regular Taycan, which received a five-star rating back in 2019.

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo reliability & problems

Because owners haven’t had a chance to put their Taycan Cross Turismos to the test on the road and live with them for a while, there’s no specific data on the car’s reliability just yet. However, Porsche was named best carmaker in the 2021 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey and repeated the feat in 2022.

An average of just 14.1% of Porsche owners reported faults in 2021, and the brand won six of the 10 categories used to judge manufacturers in the survey. Porsche being a driver-focused brand, it scored well in the ride and handling categories, too, including driving pleasure and road handling.

So far, the only major issue related to the Taycan has been a software fault that caused loss of power in some cars made before June 2021. However, Porsche responded by recalling all models affected to fix it.

Safety

Standard safety equipment on the Cross Turismo includes airbags and driver aids like a rear-end collision alert system, which warns following traffic of potential collisions by continuously measuring the Taycan’s speed and that of the vehicle behind. However, we’d like to see adaptive cruise control and traffic-sign recognition included as standard, rather than lurking in the expensive ‘InnoDrive’ package.

As mentioned above, the Taycan Cross Turismo hasn’t gone through Euro NCAP’s battery of crash testing yet, but it’s unlikely to score lower than the five stars the regular Taycan received. Its saloon sister recorded impressive adult and child occupant protection results of 85% and 83% respectively.
