The new Taycan Sport Turismo is here

19 January 2022, 17:03:25

The new Taycan Sport Turismo is hereAs the first member of the Taycan Sport Turismo family, the Taycan GTS Sport Turismo will be launched at the end of February 2022, with further models following just three weeks later in mid-March. A panoramic roof with Sunshine Control is available as a new optional extra for the Taycan Sport Turismo. A special feature of this is electric glare protection. From spring there will be five models to choose from: Being part of the latest Taycan generation, the all-wheel-drive Sport Turismo models have a particularly efficient drive strategy. Thermal management and charging functions have also been improved. Both batteries can be charged from 5% to 80% in 22 minutes and 30 seconds. This also means that only five minutes' charging is needed to create a further 100 km of range.

The Taycan Sport Turismo shares the sporty silhouette, rearward-sloping roofline, and functional design of the Taycan Cross Turismo. In contrast to its sibling model, the Taycan Sport Turismo foregoes any off-road design elements. It is also available with rear-wheel drive.

The headroom in the rear is more than 45 mm greater than that of the Taycan sports saloon. An additional 9 mm of height is available above the driver's seat. The large tailgate also means that the luggage compartment can be accessed with ease. The opening is much longer, at 801 mm, and much higher, at 543 mm, than in the saloon (434 mm and 330 mm respectively).

The precise capacity of the rear luggage compartment depends on the included equipment. In combination with the Sound Package Plus, the luggage compartment can hold up to 446 l(saloon: 407 l). With the BOSE Surround Sound System on board (included as standard as of the Taycan Turbo Sport Turismo), it can hold 405 l. With the rear seats folded down (split-folding 60:40), the capacity can even be expanded to 1,212 or 1,171 l, respectively. And that's before the 84 l in the front luggage compartment (frunk) are taken into consideration.

The new panoramic roof with Sunshine Control has electric glare protection as a special feature. The large glass surface is divided into nine sections that can be individually controlled. This means that specific sections or the entire roof can be made transparent or opaque. When set to the latter, the interior remains flooded with light.

In addition to these Clear and Matt settings, Semi or Bold can also be selected. These are predefined patterns with narrow or wide segments. It even has a dynamic Roller Blind setting, which activates a switching sequence in the individual segments when the Taycan driver slides their finger over an image of the roof in the display.

The Taycan Sport Turismo is also cutting edge in terms of comfort, safety features and infotainment. With the optional Remote Park Assist, the driver can remotely control entering and leaving a parking space without needing to sit behind the wheel. Automatic control is possible for parallel and perpendicular parking spaces as well as garages. The system automatically detects a space and measures it with the aid of ultrasonic sensors and a camera.

In addition to Apple Car Play, Android Auto has also been integrated into the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system since the last model year update. As well as the iPhone, smartphones using the Google operating system – Android – are now also supported.

Moreover, the Voice Pilot voice assistant is now even better at understanding instructions in normal speech. The navigation system calculates more quickly, primarily uses the online search to find points of interest (POI), and displays its information more clearly. The Charging Planner has been further improved, is better at planning in fast-charging stations and avoids short charging stops. In addition, charging stations can now be filtered by performance class.
