The Volkswagen ID.3 is a remarkably well-rounded small electric car. Not only is it one one of the few EVs that’s genuinely good fun to drive thanks to its well-weighted steering and fantastic body control, but it feels genuinely zippy too, matching the acceleration of the pricier Kia e-Niro Long Range and pummelling the rest of its key rivals, including the Citroën e-C4 and Peugeot e-208. It’s also surprisingly well-equipped in Life trim and benefits from slow predicted depreciation.get the best price

We’d recommend Life trim as it’s the cheapest way to get our preferred 58kWh battery and 201bhp electric motor. It comes with 18in steel wheels, automatic LED lights, auto wipers, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, climate control, a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, ambient LED lighting, a 10.0in touchscreen infotainment system with sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a DAB radio, heated front seats and even a heated steering wheel. Safety is taken care of by automatic emergency braking and lane-keep assist.
