Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo 2021 review - better than my RS6?! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

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!

Itโ€™s the estate version of the all-electric Taycan, and itโ€™s the first all-electric EV estate in the world (well, if you exclude the MG 5โ€ฆ)! The question is, should you choose it over the regular Taycan?

Well if youโ€™re looking for styling changes, there isnโ€™t much to see here! The interiorโ€™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 youโ€™re choosing the Cross Turismo, youโ€™re probably most interested in the extra space youโ€™ll get! And to be honestโ€ฆ itโ€™s not loads, with 446 litres available at the rear. Thatโ€™s only around 40 more than you get in the regular Taycan!

So is that a bit less space than you expected? Well thankfully thereโ€™s one area where the Taycan Cross Turismo doesnโ€™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? Youโ€™ll have to keep watching to find out!

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  75. 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.
