Once the battery fires up your SUV, the dashboard’s 12-inch touchscreen will light up and give you access to the latest features, including a navigation system, SiriusXM®, and the App-Connect system. This lets you sync your smartphone with Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™. The VW ID.4 also includes tech that’ll keep you safe. The IQ.DRIVE® system includes Advanced Driver Assistance Technology like Lane Assist, Rear Traffic Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control. With all these features, a comfortable cabin, an impressive driving range, and quick charging capabilities, it’s no wonder the Volkswagen ID.4 was named 2021 World Car of the Year.[iii]
