The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.5
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Model Y offers range and performance that EV competitors can’t match, albeit at a higher price point. 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.
