The Cross Turismo model is similar in concept to the larger Panamera Sport Turismo, being an elegant shooting brake / wagon body style, in contrast to the conventional sedan shape of the main model.

Like the Panamera Sport Turismo, the car is only offered with all-wheel drive models. But the ‘Cross’ indicates that it has a very slight off-road bias – the air suspension can raise the car by 30mm in a special Gravel drive mode.

Those who are interested in the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo can head on down to Porsche Centre Singapore at 29 Leng Kee Road – there’s a white 4S model sitting there waiting for a lucky buyer. 



The Taycan Cross Turismo also brings some tech updates which will be shared with the regular Taycan as well.

Porsche says that the Taycan models now have increased range, although it doesn’t specify exactly how much. That’s made possible by decoupling the front motor (the car has two motors, one per axle) at low loads, and a new free-wheeling function which decouples both motors when the car is ‘gliding’ along without power applied. Porsche also says the ‘thermal management and charging functions’ are improved. 

Inside the car,  Android Auto integration has been added to the infotainment system (Porsche Communication Management) with in-car support for Google Assistant, and customers can spec a new Remote Park Assist option, allowing you to remotely park the car via smartphone.

Another improvement is an increased colour palette: Porsche boasts 65 colours, many of them historical colours from Porsches of yore, such as Moonlight Blue Metallic, Acid Green, Rubystar, Riviera Blue and Viola Metallic.

Porsche, like other carmakers, is moving toward an era where significant updates can be added to existing machines over-the-air, and through optimising the existing hardware. BMW, for instance, adds to its onboard infotainment system regularly.

That should only help boost the Taycan’s position. Shocking fact time: Porsche Singapore says the car is its second best-selling model now, behind its most mainstream car, the Macan midsized SUV. Interestingly, that means it’s displaced the Porsche Cayenne on the second step of the Porsche podium.
