Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

One of the most complete electric cars money can buy. Superb build quality, and decent to drive.

Pros
Beautifully built intuitive cabin,
effortless performance,
exceptionally cool image,

Pros
Performance Pack adjustable dampers are too firm out of the box
the look on Tesla drivers’ faces

By:

The Polestar 2 is an excellent luxury electric vehicle, even if it's not as visually exciting as trendier alternatives.

Pros
Notable athleticism and quickness,
cabin materials and quality are indeed luxurious,
surprisingly intuitive infotainment system.

Cons
Exterior design isn't exactly daring,
race-inspired dampers require manual adjustments,
estimated driving range is underwhelming.

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:

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:

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
