Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Acadia than in the Volkswagen ID.4. The Volkswagen ID.4 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the GMC Acadia, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

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 GMC Acadia will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen ID.4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the GMC Acadia and the Volkswagen ID.4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Acadia is much wider than the Volkswagen ID.4, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the GMC Acadia, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volkswagen ID.4.

Handling
The GMC Acadia 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
The GMC Acadia has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen ID.4.

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

Utility
The GMC Acadia offers greater seating capacity than the Volkswagen ID.4, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The GMC Acadia has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the GMC Acadia is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen ID.4.
