2023 Toyota BZ4X vs. Its Competition

2023 Toyota bZ4X Limited AWD
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The Tesla Model Y is the benchmark and top-seller, but it’s expensive at $60,000.

The Volkswagen ID.4 is more affordable, and outside of some tech hiccups it delivers on the practicality it promises.

The Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5 are cousins, and with stylish, aerodynamic designs and super-fast 800-volt charging they’re a step ahead for those who want the latest tech underneath.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is sportier, although the tradeoff is a somewhat lower (more Mustang-like) driving and seating position.
