Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

The Taycan isn’t the impractical weekend toy you might be imagining. It's slightly smaller than the Porsche Panamera, but not by much, and in the front there's actually more head and leg room than you get in a Tesla Model S. There's more storage space overall, too.

The Model S is better for rear space, but the Taycan's standard two-rear-seat arrangement can easily accommodate a couple of six-footers. There isn't much room left over, though, and we doubt the optional third rear seat (a cost option) will be suitable for adults. That option also brings 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats. Without it, the rear seats fold in a 60/40 split.

The boot is plenty big enough for a buggy or a set of golf clubs. In terms of outright load space, we managed to fit six carry-on suitcases below the parcel shelf, plus one more in the front boot under the bonnet. That's more luggage than a Volkswagen Golf can swallow, but, again, it's no match for the Model S, which can take 11 cases.
