The Taycan Cross Turismo is based on the Taycan platform, but it boasts a wagon body with some off-road bits included. The ride height has been increased by 0.8 inches, and the suspension setup is softer. There are two trim levels for the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo: the 4 and 4S.
Dual electric motors power both models, and the rear motor is paired with a two-speed transmission. Starting with the 4, its motors produce 375 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque, while the 4S packs 482 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. In overboost mode, the 4's power increases to 469 hp, and the 4S gets access to 562 hp. The same 93.4 kWh Performance Plus battery provides the charge for Taycan Cross Turismo models.
The standard specifications include driver-assistance features like forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, and front and rear park assist. The interior goodies include dual-zone climate control, eight-way power-adjustable front seats with heating, and a multi-function sport steering wheel.
