Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited than in the Volkswagen ID.4. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen ID.4, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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). The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Dimensions
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is a little wider than the Volkswagen ID.4, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 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
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is clearly the choice over the Volkswagen ID.4 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen ID.4.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 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 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and the Volkswagen ID.4. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volkswagen ID.4.
