2021 VW ID4 vs Honda CR-V Hybrid

Our choice of vehicles for this SUV comparison test is bound to raise eyebrows. Shouldn’t we compare the new battery-powered 2021 Volkswagen ID4 with another electric car?

Volkswagen ID6

The ID4 is Volkswagen’s first crack at a battery-electric SUV. It’s reasonably spacious, comfortable, easy to live with, and packs a decent driving range, too.

2022 Volkswagen ID4 EV

By Kelly Lin – MotorTrend A few months ago, we got a glimpse at the Volkswagen ID4 EV’s somewhat vanilla exterior. Well, it looks like the new electric car’s interior follows the same simple-is-better philosophy. In fact, we rather like the clean, uncluttered look, which reminds us of the Tesla Model 3’s pared-backContinue Reading
