Neither the NHTSA nor IIHS would dare crash-test a $100,000 Porsche performance car, so there are no official safety ratings for the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo in the USA. Still, with a full range of driver-assistance features, it should prove to be a safe car.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
Like most modern luxury vehicles, the Taycan Cross Turismo has industry-standard safety features, such as LED headlights, ABS braking, and advanced traction and stability control. It also benefits from an AWD system. A full complement of airbags, including knee airbags for the front occupants and front and rear side airbags, are included. Regarding standard driver-assistance features, the Taycan Cross Turismo offers lane-keep assist with traffic sign recognition, cruise control, and front and rear park assist. Optional safety gear includes a surround-view camera system, night-vision assist, and a head-up display.

In terms of reliaiblity, the latest Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is yet to be recalled, but last year's model did suffer from a single recall affecting the transmission control module. Porsche will back the Taycan Cross Turismo with a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty and an eight-year/100,000-mile battery warranty.
Despite a lack of official safety ratings in the US, we expect the Taycan to be just as safe as the rest of its lineup.
Standard on each model is lane-keep assist with traffic sign recognition, cruise control, and front and rear ParkAssist. Optional extras include night vision assist, a head-up display, and a surround-view camera system.
