Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Volkswagen ID 4 is a decent electric car with a practical interior, an excellent safety score and a good range (especially with the 77kWh battery). However, the best rivals are faster, smarter inside, have much better infotainment systems and take less time to charge. The Pro Performance Style is our pick of the range, and we'd avoid the pricey Max and GTX versions.

Pros
Lots of space in the back and a big boot
Excellent Euro NCAP safety score
Well equipped

Cons
Poor infotainment and dashboard usability
Not fast by class standards
Heavier depreciation than many rivals

Pros
Modern-looking interior
Spacious in the back
Comfortable to drive

Cons
Boot has annoyingly high lip
Top versions quite expensive
Some tech seems glitchy
