Volkswagen ID.4 cargo space dimensions measure at; 950 mm L x 1,250 mm W x 820 mm H. With the rear seat folded down flat, you get even more space, up to 1,650 mm of length. A slight limitation will right behind the rear seats where the wheel wells eat into some trunk volume.

Thanks for the cargo dimensions. I do a fair amount of small project woodworking and this will be sufficient for most of my raw stock. I'm actually pleasantly surprised by the 100cm (39") width between the wheel well humps and the 165cm (65") depth with the rear seats flat. :)(y)

Interesting - I was recently at my local VW dealership here in California and the rear seats were folding down flat as opposed to leaning at an angle as show on the picture above. I hope VW is shipping the flat folding version, I also noticed that the trunk compartment could be lifted upwards so that the entire cargo space was brought to one level which increases the value of the cargo space.
Either way, I would be interested in the final max length of the cargo space, including bringing the passenger seat to the most forward position. I guess I'll have to wait until the ID.4 is showing up at a local dealership...

Hi Rick,
1118


I saw it at a dealership recently too.
I hope this photo helps explain. I have a VW GTI and the floor can be lifted up to access the spare tire OR you can take the handles pull/slide it out towards yourself and then choose which level you want the cargo floor to be at.
In this photo I took of the ID.4 the cargo floor is at the lower level to allow more cargo to be stowed. If it was removed and placed in the higher level position it would be more flush with the folded seats...

With my GTI I leave it in the higher position for everyday groceries etc. but when I go camping I put it in the lower level position.

The ID.4 has cargo storage areas below the cargo floor as well. There is a middle area and an area closer to the opening where the yellow 120v charger and tools could be stowed.

Thanks ID.R-Bitte, this is matching what I have seen. Looks like the rear bench is folding down almost flat.
Now I only have to find out what the max loading length is when the passenger seat is brought all the way forward ;-)

Cheers,
Rick

This website has accurate dimensions for many cars for comparison:


The 165 cm value is quite short, I guess it is with driver seat all the way back, otherwise it should be closer to 180 cm.

Overall the iD4 values are close to Golf Sportwagen, maybe a bit shorter but taller boot space.

Just the size vehicle I'm now looking for. I had a 2013 A4/A5-based Audi allroad and although the most comfortable long distance hauler I've ever owned it would be too big for my current needs. Roughly the Golf Sportwagon size is what I hoped the ID.4 would be.

I too hope the rear seats are completely folding down flat type, which I've not enjoyed in an SUV since a mid-90's Jeep Cherokee. Of course often a design trade off between rear-upper seat cushioning. Case in point, my TTS has fully fold flat rear seats but at the expense of very thin upper/lower cushioning, then again no adult can really sit back there anyway.

My S-10 Blazers 85 & 95 (1st & 2nd gen.) both had fold flat back seats which I found to be very useful for hauling stuff. My current Ford Edge has back seats that fold with a slight elevation (Like the ID interior pictures I see here?) which I am not a big fan of. In all the years I've owned 4 door SUV's I've probably only had the back seats up a handful of times. My big GSD's don't seem to mind the elevation though. As a side note since I do a lot of fishing and haul dogs around I've added a layer of protective marine vinyl over the carpeted rear interior which are connected by pieces of Velcro on all of my past SUVs as well as my present one.

Looks like this answers the question of whether the seats will fold down flat or not. Will the back portion elevate to the level of the seat backs to make the two sections flat / level where they meet?

Yes. If you look there is a 'shelf' at the same level as the seats and you can move the 'floor' up so they are level.

I had a first-generation 1978 Golf (Rabbit at the time) and loved how the back seats folded. The bottom cushion of the rear seat was hinged at the front and could be positioned vertically, then the seat back could be folded down perfectly flat behind it. Besides providing a truly flat (not flat-ish) floor, the vertical seat cushion made a nice backstop for the load. I've never since had a car that could do this.

Jetta sportwagens and many recent Fords still had this feature. But manufacturers are moving away from this concept. I think additional cost and lack of solid feel of the cushion could be a factor.

Do we know if there is a divider that will split the trunk into two halves. My current CTC has it and I find it damn convenient to store more stuff instead of piling them on top of each other.

From seeing it in person I would say with the rear seats up it has more cargo room than a VW Golf/GTI, but less room than a Golf Wagon/Jetta Sportwagen.

I’m 5’11” and from sitting in the front and back of the ID.4 I can say that it has MUCH more rear leg room than a GTI or Golf Wagon. With the seat adjusted comfortably in the front of the ID.4 I could sit comfortably behind the driver seat with about 3-5” of extra leg room. The American made VW Passat has more rear leg room that an Audi A8L or BMW 7 series, and more rear leg room than the ID.4, but the Passat is also longer.

The VW ID SpaceVizzion which will be available in the US in 2023 would be larger than a Golf Wagon/Jetta Sportwagen. It should be larger than a Passat Wagon as well.

Our 2007 Jetta has a really good trunk space. It is much longer than the ID.4 44 inches vs 37 inches, but it is listed as 12 ft3 instead of 15 ft3. The widths (narrow and wide) are nearly the same. The heights of the ID.4 is much higher though with 32 inches vs 22 inches for the Jetta.

Does anyone know if the measured 82 cm trunk height in the original post is actually to the privacy panel or to the ceiling of the ID.4?

If it is to the ceiling than filling the trunk will be rather unsafe since the view will restricted and there is so far no vertical divider available (though that might come) that would hold back luggage flying through the car when the privacy panel is not installed.

Thanks!

I am curious to know how high the tailgate lifts when open.
I'm building a carport for the id4, and I would like to be able to open the trunk inside :)
Any clues?
