      The only thing that bothers me is the rear spoiler. It's noticeably larger on the ID.3 than on the concept version and it just "spoils" the rear end by making it more square and takes away from the fastback look. I realize it is necessary for aero and painting it black helps it disappear but I still find it awkward.

      I want one of these. It looks like a fantastic commuter.

      I'm torn on it. It's a great example of cute and quirky VW design and I like that. But yes, comparing 3000lbs of moving vehicle to an iPod seems...sketchy...even if both are powered by LiIons.

      I want one with 'Jetronic' racing stripes at the base of the doors. If someone could PS this for me, I'd be grateful.

      I like it too. I hope the crossover we get is more Q3/hatch than Tiguan/SUV. If it's the former I'm in.

      We already know what they look like... the overall shape and proportions won't change.

      First one is ID4, second one is Q4

      In other articles about the ID.3, I've read that a few traditional ICE cars have also used the Pause/Play symbols on their pedals.

      A lot of cars with push-button ignition have copied some form of the power symbol found on electronics/appliances. If it's not a problem on the ignition button, then it shouldn't be offensive to use these symbols on the pedals.

      Not a fan of the id.3 interior and front end, maybe a performance version will fix it, not a fan of the id.4 because I enjoy driving. The wait continues for something I would drive

      I really hope VW Canada (and German car companies on a whole) continues to distance itself from VW America, and offer cars I want

      Oh definitely not offended by it, nor would it stop me from buying the car. Just discussing how I'm torn on the design choice--I just feel like the brake pedal is something serious, and the pause button on a remote has far less dire consequences if you miss it.

      Thanks, I didn't know this! ID4 looks like something H&R can help me turn into a hatchback.

      I quite like this.




      I really want to put a set of the wheels from the teal version on a Sportwagon though.

      I like this car because it's so similar to the Golf, but don't like the black part on the back. Guess it doesn't matter anyway since it isn't coming to the US which just seems rather dumb. I know crossovers are more popular here, blah blah blah. But not everyone wants a crossover or SUV!! Some of us prefer cars.

      yeah it's really annoying. i mean, not everyone is Nancy the librarian ffs. If every last car sold becomes a CUV/SUV, I'll have to stick to the used car market forever.

      Any car which holds together for a whole race is too heavy.
