You can find additional grocery bags there while allowing the rear floor to remain flat. Restraints to hold items in place are fit-or-miss, since all VW provides are plastic hooks that can give way to movement. The hatch opens with a simple wag of the foot beneath the bumper, while the rear seats get pinch protection to avoid injury, and plenty of airbags are along for the protection, including front seat-back side bags and a “belt bag” that inflates between the front occupants in a side collision.
Up front, head and leg room are abundant, and the driver gets a sea of room between the center console and instrument panel. Visibility through the thin pillars and large windows is also excellent, and the blind-spot monitor includes trailers if so equipped. The single pane of glass in front that includes the panoramic roof tends to resonate rain noise as much as it blocks out road and wind noise.
However, the most impressive point about the ID.7 is its safety features such as the seat belt protection, which inflates between the occupants in a side collision. This more than meets its luxury aspirations, and is an example of why this ID family vehicle might be worth the wait. End of months rumors of Twin-drive performance have been around, and the details are more than enough to make this EV more than a one for the future, it was made to handle exceedingly well.
The ride and performance handled well too. The ID.7’s ride is smooth and fairly composed. The handling was very firm, and more planted than I thought it would be.
It’s an excellent EV option for buyers who require the space and comfort of a midsize car, combined with the utility of a probably SUV or a crossover that does not drive like a boat. The 2025 Volkswagen ID.7 is set to be a game changer in the premium electric vehicle segment, and consumers may be pleased with the significant number of capabilities that it will offer in its class.
