The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is the electric wagon to rule them all

Saying the words “electric Porsche wagon” shouldn’t make sense, but they do and it’s all glorious. Meet the new Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo. Sure, Porsche might not want to call it a Taycan Wagon but that’s what it is even in the face of the extra exterior cladding. And it’s a truly wonderful machine as well.

  1. I agree, wagons are better than crossovers. But this (in my eyes) isn’t a wagon. It’s a four-door hatchback. But that’s fine, because I like them too– they’re just not as practical. A true wagon has a roof that goes back horizontally much farther before diving steeply to the rear bumper. There’s room for tall stuff, not just wide stuff. The Taycan is basically a sedan a little more headspace in the trunk, but not enough to make it a useful wagon.

    Semantics, whatever. Regardless, I struggle to appreciate the appearance of this car. The rear view is nice, the side view is okay, but the front end is just awful. All I can see up front since first getting a glimpse of this car’s design is a crying llama face. It’s those headlights, I think. I prefer the front clip of the Panamera, even though it’s not exactly pretty.

    I’m sure it’s a great car to drive, if luxe is your thing.
