The 2021 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Is a Fast Electric Station Wagon

2021 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo review!! The 2021 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is an electric station wagon -- and it's fast. Today I'm reviewing the Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo, and I'll show you all the quirks and features of a high-performance EV wagon. I'm also going to drive the Taycan Cross Turismo to show you what it's like on the road.

    11:42 Why did the right center vent adjustment change?

  • schprinklerrr

    this video doesn't do the sound justice. it's actually pretty loud and I really like it, it still sounds like it has a heart and that something is driving you forward (other than magic)

    The Porsche executive leadership team: “our huge financial gamble on manufacturing the Taycan has paid off handsomely, we’re is our financial compensation reward”.

    why does an electric car have turbo in it's name?

    • Oti Oti
      Oti Oti

      nvm it's because it's fast. still don't like the name though. @Doug Demuro says get over it but names should mean something, a coupe should have 2 doors, a convertible should have a removable roof, and a turbo should have a turbo. Porsche Cayenne is a model, Porsche Cayenne Turbo is the Cayenne with a Turbo. This criticism is not overblown.

    hey, Doug can you do a video about the original vw bug from the 60s-70s pretty please!!!

  • Marr

    God dammit. These LCD A/C and heating controls suck so much. Everyone is doing it because it’s “cool” but it’s not better. What’s wrong with a dial or a button or a lever that you can feel without taking your eyes off of the road? Also, get off my lawn! ;p

    Very impressive EV and great video as always, but I despise the plastic trim running around the car. It resembles an Audi A6 Allroad, which isn't a good thing.

    Imagine all the motors and wiring to control those vents. Cost with little benefit.... i guess they all break right when the warranty expires

    Seems these scores are deliberately gimped. Almost like you start with a score you wanna give it then share it out. How does handling be among the best and still be a 6/10??? Makes NO SENSE. How is practicality 6/10???

  • 柴柴123

    What’s is the purpose of this? It’s a size of a suv but too low for good vision

  • jOhNnYr1cO

    I think the main reason why the Taycan drives like a Porsche, because it is a Porsche!

  • David

    Yes it cost few bucks but you get a super car and a wagon. . And also you don't to complain about super costing big buck.

    Dude it’s a fair criticism..turbo is a technical designation for a car’s process...cayenne and highlander aren’t a mechanism that helps propel the car in a direction. Why call it a turbo when it doesn’t have turbo.. Imagine Prius or Tesla calling a big sized car a diesel. The Tesla xl diesel. Sounds dumb as fuck right?

    Funny that many Porsche models that don’t have the “Turbo” name do in fact have a turbo. Nobody complained.

  • Specproof

    I'm pretty sure that Porsche is trying to sell it as raised up wagon like Volvo's Cross Country line or Audi's Allroad etc rather than a real crossover.

    This car is honestly such a dream, Porsche is really taking good command of the electric market. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Tesla fanatic but Porsche is doing seriously well 😖💯

    turbo on electric is the dumbest thing ever, that would be like me sticking a v8 badge on my gtr

    I think the Panorama Wagon looks way better than the standard one, o i was very excited to see the Toucan Wagon, but i don't like how they went with the crossovery plastics. Looks ofc in an otherwise sleek design.

    Who do Americans keep saying PorschA??

    • Sebastian Nolte
      Sebastian Nolte

      Well, many even say "Porsch", which is much worse. If somebody says "PorschA" he at least tries to say it correctly. Do you pronounce all foreign brand names 100% without accent? And especially Doug here doesn't even really say PorschA but more PorschE. So it sounds fine - and I say that as a German.

    That would be interesting to see a fight between Doug and Chuck Norris

  • 1975lap

    Uber requires a three passenger back seat for a vehicle to be used for rideshare. I will probably order my new Tycan with the 3 person back seat because of this requirement.

  • Yossam88

    I would rather have no screens, and a V8

  • Ronald K. Wiley Jr.

    Seems more like a hatchback than a station wagon. Just based on the rear hatch room. A wagon has a whole flat "floor " full of room. Looks great, I'll be saying Taycan hatchback.

  • lmaxmai

    17:33 New York grandmother, long time no hear! I am glad that you respected yourself and others and stayed safe while maintaining a certain vigorousness. And by the way, sweetheart, as it does not seem to have a turbine still, a discussion about that part of the model name is warranted. 😘

  • kvaks3000

    The Turbo name is really stupid, no way around that. Equivocating with "Highlander" is just silly. Why not call it Taycan 4.0L V8 Turbo when they're at it?

    • Sebastian Nolte
      Sebastian Nolte

      They just use the same naming scheme as for the other Porsches. So when you know that, you know exactly what you get whe you see "Taycan", "Taycan 4S", "Taycan Turbo", "Taycan Turbo S". What do you think is the difference between a "Panamera 4S" and a "Panamera Turbo"?

    Rims are too big, tire sidewall is too narrow. No spare tire. A recipe for disaster. If you get an unrepairable flat and you are far from home, you will be staying in a hotel for a couple of days. The nearest tire shop will not have that tire in stock (even the Porsche dealer doesn't stock it). Too many unnecessary computer screens, door handles are stupidly engineered (the forums are already complaining that they don't work right). This car is unnecessarily overcomplicated. No thanks.

    10:26 - The warning lights are not integrated in the cluster's display because of automotive regulations. They always have to be integrated physically (by LEDs, typically, outside any display), in case of one of the displays stop working. They always have to have a dedicated LED for redundancy, so that is not that strange.

  • SPW

    Does anyone think that Doug brings his own dust and debris or does he just hope it's there for use on all of the screens? C'mon Doug, run a cloth over those screens....

    I'm so happy that an electric car review didn't compare it to the tesla or as the tesla killer etc etc. Enough with saying is this the tesla killer. Just compare it as a car. Doug mentioned build quality of tesla and that's a fact. You want quality buy a Porsche over the tesla. You want range get an uglier and slower (yes I know new p will have 1000hp, but until then current P is slower) tesla. when it comes to cheaper electric cars, so many good options that aren't model 3.

    Nailed it...I guessed the Doug Score before even listening to the last 30 seconds. "This is a fantastic car that checks every box except price...and the Doug score is...72" Remind me again what the criteria is for handling (6) practicality (7), comfort (7) and quality (8)? I've noticed a trend forming. While describing the car there's lots and lots of praise heaped on it appeasing the person or business that entrusted Doug to create the content (box checked) were they both benefit from ego and/or financially from their car being seen by 4 million subscribers. Then once Doug gets to pass his wand of subjectivity over it, the last 30 seconds, the score again doesn't match the previous 25 minutes of hype and emotional description. How can something have Star Wars hyperdrive level acceleration and handling and only get a "6"? or a huge practical trunk and leg room for 4 in comfort and get a "7"? could it be to ensure that the final score doesn't cause too much of a stir when in reality it probably could have been a strong 75/76 thus shining its ass at, and above, so many other cars? Bottom line, people buy cars specifically for the activities that they intend to use them for, so what is practical for a crossover or sports car or SUV needs to be determined for that particular segment not a blanket over every segment. So among other 4 door sport sedans (electric or ICE powered) how does this handle? probably a 10 and so on. Maybe there's a reason other very popular ILcomp automotive contributors don't rate cars, its too subjective and as a consumer you don't know where the bias may be coming from but its definitely there.
