Tesla Model Y Vs. Volkswagen ID.4: Which Electric SUV Should You Get?
The Tesla Model Y is a chart-topping electric SUV, but when pitted against Volkswagen’s ID.4 — who wins? The Model Y is one of the best-selling EVs thanks to several attractive features covering infotainment, driver autonomy, and other critical areas. However, the ID.4 isn’t far behind and has enjoyed great reception thanks to its practicality and budget-friendly price.
While the Volkswagen ID.4 doesn’t exactly offer a luxurious interior, its modern design, coupled with sufficient cargo space, should appeal to prospective buyers. The Model Y bets big on utility as it’s designed to accommodate up to seven passengers, as the SUV is offered in five and seven seating layout options.
Typical of Tesla, the Model Y features a 15-inch touchscreen. However, drivers used to fiddling with buttons may not appreciate the infotainment screen’s lack of knobs. Meanwhile, the ID.4’s central command center is a 12″ display that promises seamless interaction for functions like climate settings and navigation. The Volkswagen EV also gets wireless smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which Tesla lacks.
