Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2019, the QX30 merely adds new option packages for the Luxe model. These include the Navigation package with Infiniti's InTouch services that allow users to unlock and lock the doors and schedule maintenance remotely using a smartphone app, and the 19-inch Wheel package that adds—you guessed it—19-inch Gun Metallic wheels rolling on run-flat summer tires. Otherwise, the QX30 lineup carries over unchanged.

Pros
Concept-car styling,
nicely crafted interior,
Sport model truly feels sporty.

Cons
Subpar fuel economy,
cramped cabin,
fully loaded versions are pricey.

By:

PROS
Strong acceleration and sharp handling
High-quality interior materials
Powerful and confident brakes
Interior controls are easy to locate and use

CONS
Less usable cargo space than its competitors
Interior quarters are cramped, especially for rear passengers

Not only is the ID.4 a brand new nameplate for the Volkswagen brand, it's also the first in a series of all-electric model which will combine to create the ID subbrand.The ID.4 is a practical electric alternative to gas-powered SUVs but lacks the excitement you might expect from an EV.

PROS
Roomy cabin,
smooth ride,
decent driving range.

CONS
Lacks driving verve,
fussy infotainment interface,
anonymous styling.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 is all-new all-electric SUV,about as much interior space as VW's Tiguan, an estimated range for rear-wheel-drive models of 250 miles and Kicks off the first generation of the ID.4 for 2021.

Pros
Lots of helpful safety and technology features come standard
Spacious interior with lots of small-item storage
Impressive real-world range and electrical efficiency

Cons
Some controls can be difficult to operate
Low-quality cabin plastics cheapen the experience

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 gives families the right formula for saying farewell to tailpipe emissions, but the cabin tech could use some smoothing over.

PROS
Good passenger and cargo space
Quiet, smooth ride
Lots of features for the money
Free road-trip charging for three years

CONS
Laggy infotainment
Clumsy capacitive controls
Grabby brakes
