The Volkswagen ID.5 is a good all-rounder that comes with plenty of kit, a decent range and an excellent safety score. However, rivals including the Genesis GV60, Kia EV6, Tesla Model Y and Volvo C40 Recharge are faster, smarter inside, have much better infotainment systems and take less time to charge.

The GTX Max benefits from Ystad 20in alloy wheels, glossy finishes on the roof frame and C-pillars, red seat upholstery, dark blue faux-leather door panels and GTX-branded door-sill protectors.

The range-topping GTX has not one but two electric motors, given it more power and four-wheel drive. Acceleration of this version is roughly on a par with cheaper versions of the EV6 and Mustang Mach-E, so it's nippy enough but don't expect to be thrown back in your seat. 0-62mph officially takes 6.3 seconds.
