Porsche Taycan saloon - Practicality & boot space

There's room for four adults and as much luggage as a hot hatch

With its intriguing blend of performance, smooth lines and a huge battery pack, you may be wondering how practical the Taycan actually is inside - it's certainly not as spacious as the Model S, but there's room for four people and about as much luggage as a hot hatchback can swallow. With some careful packing, the Taycan is easily big enough to facilitate trips away.

Porsche Taycan interior space & storage

The Taycan can seat up to four adults but knee room in the back seats isn't quite as generous as you'll find in the conventionally powered Porsche Panamera. There’s a middle back seat but it's very narrow, so it's only really suitable for kids on short journeys. Up front there's space for tall occupants and the driving position is excellent, with lots of adjustment for the steering wheel and electric seats to ensure you’re comfortable and secure.

Boot space

Measuring 366 litres, the boot is slightly smaller than you'll find in a Volkswagen Golf but it's a useful shape and can accommodate a reasonable amount of luggage. It's not even close to the size of the Model S' boot, though, which has almost twice the capacity. The Taycan also has a front 'frunk' and measuring 81 litres, we found it could fit a backpack or small softbag. Even taking this extra storage into account, the Taycan is less practical than a Panamera and makes do without its hatchback tailgate, so loading bulky items won't be possible.
