The Porsche Taycan, the brand's first EV, boasts a fantastic mix of performance, refinement and style. But it's the Taycan Cross Turismo that impressed us enough to crown it the Edmunds Top Rated Luxury EV for 2022.
"It feels like a proper Porsche, delivering a superbly comfortable ride, a thoroughly modern interior and unmatched agility among its EV peers. The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo might just represent the ideal one-car garage."
Essentially a wagon version of the Taycan, the Cross Turismo improves upon the standard Taycan sedan in key areas. Its elongated and stylish profile increases cargo capacity and provides a wider opening to load items. It also opens up more rear passenger headroom and makes it easier to get in and out of the back seat. Then there's the Cross Turismo's slightly higher ride height and softer suspension tuning that result in a fantastically comfortable ride.
Pleasingly, the Cross Turismo's changes don't diminish the Taycan's already impressive performance. It feels like a proper Porsche thanks to accurate steering, superb handling and rapid acceleration. There's simply no EV that's more engaging and more satisfying to drive, quickly or otherwise, than the Taycan Cross Turismo. We also recently subjected it to the Edmunds EV range test, and it easily outperformed the EPA's estimate.
Yes, it's expensive. But the way the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo combines the driving excitement we've come to expect from Porsche, the forward thinking of an EV, and the practicality and general coolness of a wagon makes it an easy choice for the Edmunds Top Rated Luxury EV.
