Volkswagen ID.4

The VW ID.4 and the Hyundai Kona EV are ready to prove that all-electric vehicles are more than their endurance. They’re also powerful creatures ready to roar on the road.

Treks and Travels

The base models of the Volkswagen and the Hyundai support 2-wheel drivetrains. You’ll find rear-wheel drive on the VW ID.4 and front-wheel drive on the Kona EV.

The VW ID.4 is also available with all-wheel drive, which enhances traction and helps expand your adventure horizons. Go on, add dirt paths or gravel roads to your road-trip itinerary. Front-wheel drive is the Kona EV’s only drivetrain.

Uninterrupted Miles

With their base powertrains, both SUVs output 201 horsepower, which is plenty of juice for quick acceleration. However, when equipped with all-wheel drive, the VW ID.4 produces 295 horsepower and 339 lb-ft of torque! That’s a performance sure to take your breath away.

The VW ID.4 exhibits an excellent balance of brute strength and endurance. When properly equipped, it can achieve an EPA-estimated 275-mile range.* In comparison, the Hyundai sports an EPA-estimated 258-mile all-electric range. With more available miles, you can stay away from the charging station longer in the Volkswagen.

Volkswagen ID.4

Road trips draw a crowd, and with people comes their belongings. Fortunately, the VW ID.4 and the Hyundai Kona EV have spacious cabins designed for both people and cargo.

Pack It All

While both SUVs feature five seating appointments, the Volkswagen takes the cake when it comes to cargo capacity.

  • VW ID.4 Cargo Capacity (behind first row/second row): 64.2/30.3 cubic feet
  • Hyundai Kona EV Cargo Capacity (behind first row/second row): 45.8/19.2 cubic feet

While the Volkswagen has more cargo room overall, you’ll really enjoy the generous trunk space that can easily fit your party of five’s luggage and duffel bags.

Kick Back and Relax

During a road trip, rear-row room is equally as important as front-row space. After all, when you’re traveling for miles, you want everyone on board to feel comfortable. To help both tall and small passengers enjoy the ride, the VW ID.4 and the Hyundai Kona EV come with a lot of front and rear legroom.

While both models offer over 41 inches of front legroom, the Volkswagen offers more space for your second-row passengers:

  • VW ID.4 Rear Legroom: 37.6 inches
  • Hyundai Kona EV Rear Legroom: 33.4 inches

With a significant jump in space, rear-seat passengers in the VW won’t need to stop as often to stretch their legs. They can just do so while sitting!

Volkswagen ID.4

All-electric vehicles are at the forefront of automotive innovation, which means they often equip the latest technology on the market. With that being said, which SUV will exceed your expectations?

Crisp Visuals

Are you following directions to your next destination? Looks like you’ll need a large infotainment display to display your navigation in stunning quality. Fortunately, the Volkswagen and the Hyundai have this in spades. A 10-inch Discover Pro display comes standard on the VW ID.4, while an 8-inch screen is standard on the Kona EV.

Both models have available display upgrades; however, the available 12-inch display on the VW ID.4 is bigger than the Hyundai’s available 10.25-inch display. So, if you want an enhanced viewing experience, choose the Volkswagen.

Keep It Cozy

As you explore, you may experience different climates depending on the state you visit. To help you go with the flow of the weather, the VW ID.4 comes standard with these amenities:

  • Heated front seats
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Dual-zone Climatronic® Touch climate control

Plus, the VW ID.4 supports “Hello ID.” natural voice control. By uttering “Hello ID., I’m cold,” this feature will automatically crank up the heat for you. The opposite is also true.

Unfortunately, the Hyundai only makes heated front seats and its Dynamic Voice Recognition software available. Plus, a heated steering wheel or dual-zone climate control is not offered on this SUV.
