The 2021 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo takes Porsche’s impressive new all-electric sedan and gives it a practical wagon body, with a sprinkling of SUV styling cues to keep the masses interested.
While the sedan is available in three different models, with a fourth coming soon, the Cross Turismo will be offered in just two when hits Australia during the third quarter of 2021.
The wagon also misses out on the smaller battery standard in the 4S sedan. Instead, both wagons use the larger, 93.4kWh Performance Battery Plus.
For those wanting to do a little more off the beaten track, there’s a Gravel Mode that raises the air suspension by 30mm and an available off-road package that raises the ride height by a further 30mm.
