New Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo line-up expanded for 2022
Sport Turismo estate bodystyle now available across the Taycan range
The Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo has been expanded with a full array of trim levels and powertrains. At launch, the Taycan Sport Turismo estate was initially shown only in GTS guise, but now Porsche has added the practical estate bodystyle to the Taycan, 4S, Turbo and Turbo S models.
When it goes on sale in spring, prices for the Taycan Sport Turismo start from £73,650. The new car is the third model of the brand’s flagship performance electric car, alongside the Taycan saloon and the Taycan Cross Turismo.
The Sport Turismo is more spacious than the regular Taycan saloon, with the longer roof giving rear passengers an extra 45mm of headroom. It also features more adjustment for the driver’s seat, which can now be raised by an extra 9mm. Practicality has been improved too, with up to 446 litres of boot space available (a 39-litre improvement over the saloon), and up to 1,212 litres with the rear seats folded down. The boot opening is also far larger, increasing from 434mm to 801mm tall, and improved width from 330mm to 543mm, making it easier to load items in the boot. Like the regular Taycan, there is an additional 84-litre storage compartment in the nose.
While Sport Turismo’s interior and technology is carried over from the saloon, it's available with an optional panoramic glass roof fitted with Variable Light Control. This allows the driver to switch the entire roof between a clear and opaque setting, or alternatively the nine separate sections contained in the panel can be switched individually via the controls located in the infotainment screen.
All of the powertrains from the Taycan are unchanged in the Sport Turismo, with the 332bhp rear-wheel drive model acting as the entry-point to the range starting from £73,650. Above this, the Taycan 4S Sport Turismo costs from £84,830, and adds a dual-motor powertrain and four-wheel drive. It also has the highest range figure of the line-up, offering up to 309 miles on a charge.
The GTS is priced from £104,990, and slots into the Taycan range beneath the flagship models as a more driver-focused model than the 4S. At the top of the range, the range-topping Turbo and Turbo S models have increased power and performance, and command asking prices of £117,670 and £140,080 respectively.
Elsewhere, the Taycan Sport Turismo gets all of the updates rolled out to the rest of the range last year. This includes Android Auto, improved voice control and an Optional Remote Park Assist system, that is capable of parking the car remotely without a driver behind the wheel.
