Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen ID.4 than in the Toyota 4Runner, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Volkswagen ID.4 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota 4Runner, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Toyota 4Runner, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volkswagen ID.4.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Toyota 4Runner or the Volkswagen ID.4, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Toyota 4Runner and the Volkswagen ID.4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota 4Runner is much wider than the Volkswagen ID.4, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Toyota 4Runner, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volkswagen ID.4.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Toyota 4Runner transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Handling
The Toyota 4Runner has a significantly larger turning radius than the Volkswagen ID.4, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Toyota 4Runner is clearly the choice over the Volkswagen ID.4 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota 4Runner greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen ID.4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Toyota 4Runner and the Volkswagen ID.4. With the Toyota 4Runner, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota 4Runner is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen ID.4.
