Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen ID.4 than in the Lexus RX 350, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Volkswagen ID.4 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus RX 350.
