Unlike a conventional family SUV, the Volkswagen ID.4 was never designed to have an engine at the front or an exhaust pipe running underneath, which means there’s more room inside than you might expect given its size.

It’s more spacious than a Kia e-Niro, for example, despite both being electric SUVs. The interior design is minimalist as well, which means there’s an airy feeling inside that makes it feel extra roomy. Light control weights help keep fatigue at bay on longer trips, as well.

Volkswagen ID.4 interior space, storage & comfort

The lack of a centre tunnel in the back of the ID.4 means there's lots of space for your feet, and the rear bench sits higher up to offer a cinematic view forwards – yet there’s still lots of head and legroom.

The roofline means that the rear windows are on the small side, so there’s not as much light in the rear as there could be. It doesn’t feel dingy but it’s not as roomy-feeling in the back as it is up front. It feels tighter in the back than some of its rivals even though the actual space in there is fine even for three people.

Boot space & towing capacity

The boot measures in at 543 litres, or 1,655 with the seats folded down, and there's the all-important storage for charging cables under the flat floor. That means it’s more spacious than the Ford Mustang Mach-E in terms of luggage space, putting it among the more practical family SUVs with electric power.

Volkswagen offers a range of dealer-fit accessories for the ID.4 including a luggage bay liner – great for dog owners – and a spare wheel kit (as there’s only a repair kit as standard). You can also add a roof box or a bicycle carrier, while the ID.4 has a towing capacity of up to 1,000kg and can be fitted with an optional folding tow bar.
