The all-new 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime has a potent powertrain and a comfortable, welcoming cabin with plenty of features. This vehicle does not have an overall score or ranking because it hasn’t been fully crash tested or rated for reliability.

Pros
Good all-electric driving range
Strong acceleration
Roomy, comfortable seats
Long list of features

Cons
Slightly outdated touch-screen graphics

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.

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
