That's a feather in VW's cap as Car & Driver are typically quite critical. (y)

Not exactly the top competition, however.
Yeah, the Soul is a low bar. A great car, but not something Kia is betting on their future with. If C&D said this was better than the Model Y, that would be quite notable.

It wasn’t the Soul that was compared. But agreed….It was a recent article that I passed along…

Considering that I almost went for a Niro EV I am quite happy to see my judgment call confirmed.
At least this one was not only a 0-60 shootout, even though these guys couldn't quite resist either.

I came into the ID.4 from a Kona, and I don't see these as in the same vehicle class at all. And I sort of see the eNiro like I saw the Kona, so to me it was a strange comparison.

It is interesting that most of the comments in this article about the ID.4 are negative, from people that don't own one or have never even driven one.

I inititally ordered the ID4 but after driving one decided on a Niro instead. I think they are pretty comparable. The Kona is a much smaller feeling vehicle than the Niro.

I liked the ID4, but the touch controls and little dumb things like missing two buttons for the power windows drove me nuts along with the overall feeling of unfinished/buggy software. Also it felt a bit too sluggish for me. Tons of room though, and a tow hook which is not possible on the Niro.

The Niro feels a lot quicker and more nimble and has enough interior space for me. I also like all the buttons, the quite decent stereo, and I have yet to find any software glitches. It's not a fancy car in any way but well put together and feels like it just plain works. And it's efficient as heck; I drove a 200km round trip yesterday and averaged 11.8 kWh / 100km.
