Mat’s got his hands on the new Volkswagen ID7!

In the future, this all-electric saloon is set to replace the VW Passat. The question is, is it a worthy replacement?

Well, let’s take a closer look. Starting with the design, it looks relatively smart on the outside. There’s a sloped tailgate around the back with some cool taillights and a full-length light bar. Along the side, you’ll notice the contrasting roof and flush door handles, while around the front there’s another full-length light bar running between a set of matrix LED headlights. So it’s smart, but not exactly the most exciting!

It’s a similar theme on the inside. There’s a large infotainment screen on the dash, although annoyingly the majority of the climate control functions are managed with it. There’s a small digital driver display that holds just enough information for the driver, and the cabin is generally made of soft touch and nice quality materials. Don’t lean too far down, though, or you’ll find some cheap-feeling plastics!

The entry-level ID7 comes with a 77kWh battery pack which is good for a range of up to 384 miles. It also comes with a single electric motor which can deliver 286hp. In the future, there’ll be an 86kWh battery available which will be good for a range of up to 435 miles, and a dual-motor edition will also be released.

As for the price, the entry-level ID7 starts from around £51,500, and the car we have here for this video comes in at over £58,000! So is it worth it? Or would a Tesla Model 3 be a smarter choice? You’ll need to stick with Mat and see for yourself!
