New 2022 Volkswagen ID4 GTX on sale
You can order a Volkswagen ID4 GTX now, with prices starting at £48,510.
As standard, your GTX will have a 12-inch infotainment system and an augmented reality head-up display fitted inside, while the exterior gets Matrix LED headlights plus scrolling indicators.
Opt for the GTX Max and you’ll find all of the ID4’s option packs fitted too. This will set you back £55,540 but adds extra goodies such as a panoramic sunroof, three-zone climate control and a host of safety goodies in the Assistance Package Plus suite of tech.
No word yet on when deliveries will begin but expect them towards the end of 2021 at the earliest.
New 2022 Volkswagen ID4 GTX design
The overall design of the Volkswagen ID4 GTX is similar to that of the regular car, albeit with some tweaks for a sportier look.
It has some restyled bumpers and new 20-inch alloy wheels, along with a GTX badge on the back.
New 2022 Volkswagen ID4 GTX performance and range
The Volkswagen ID4 GTX uses a dual-motor setup – that means there’s a motor on each axle to give the new car all-wheel drive.
The combined output of both motors is 299hp. That’s enough to help the ID4 GTX accelerate from 0-60mph in 6.2 seconds – that’s very nearly as quick as the latest VW Golf GTI. However, the new ID4 GTX is limited to a 112mph top speed – the Golf GTI can manage 155mph.
The ID4 GTX uses a 77kWh battery which delivers 298 miles of range. It’s compatible with 125kW fast-charging, so you’ll be able to boost your car’s range by 186 miles in approximately 30 minutes.
New 2022 Volkswagen ID4 GTX equipment and interior
With the Volkswagen ID4 GTX now sitting at the top of the electric SUV’s range, it comes loaded with kit.
There’s a 12-inch infotainment touchscreen slapped on the centre of the dashboard, along with a digital driver’s display right in front of you. It also gets VW’s ID Light tech as standard, which sees a huge LED stretching the width of the dash that will react to sat-nav directions and charging status.
Subtle tweaks have been made to the interior too, including red detailing and new seats with ‘GTX’ embossed on the headrests.
Optional equipment includes an adaptive suspension setup that lets you pick if you want your ID4 GTX to feel firmer and sportier on twisty back roads, or softer and more comfortable when cruising on the motorway. These are included in the Max version of the GTX.
