Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Edge than in the Volkswagen ID.4. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Ford Edge and 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Edge will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Edge is much wider than the Volkswagen ID.4, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Edge, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Handling
The Ford Edge 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
In terms of towing capacity, the Volkswagen ID.4 is clearly the choice over the Ford Edge for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Edge has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Ford Edge does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Edge and the Volkswagen ID.4. The Ford Edge has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volkswagen ID.4.
