The Cupra Born borrows all the good bits from the VW ID 3 and adds a slightly more polished interior and sharper handling. The entry-level 58kWh V1 version makes the most sense, although is still much more expensive than an equivalent MG4.

Entry-level V1 trim gets you LED headlights, climate control, various parking aids and 18in alloy wheels. It's all you really need and there are various option packs available.

In our tests, the 58kWh version of the Born managed 0-60mph in a very respectable 7.0 seconds. That means acceleration is roughly on a par with the Renault Megane E-Tech and slightly stronger than in the MG4.
