2022 Volkswagen ID.4 vs. Its Competition

2022 Volkswagen ID.4
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

VW has worked to make the ID.4 a strong value proposition versus mass-market gasoline models—especially after figuring in the $7,500 federal EV tax credit most buyers will be able to claim.

The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid looks outdoorsy next to the smooth ID.4.

The Honda CR-V isn’t as roomy or space-efficient—even though it somehow looks larger on the outside.

The Tesla Model Y is the one to beat in this class for range, even though its price is much higher.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is sporty and refined, and we like its infotainment and upscale cabin materials.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is also very spacious inside, and it can charge faster and has even better ride-and-handling attributes than the ID.4—plus styling that some are going to find retro in all the right ways.
