According to a report of Autocar India, the Volkswagen EV SUV is expected to boast a distinctive design, setting it apart from its predecessors, the ID 4 and ID 5.

A chunky rear spoiler might add to the vehicle's assertive appearance. In terms of size, the SUV might measure approximately 4.1 meters in length with a wheelbase of 2,600mm, offering more than the ID 2's 490 litres of boot space. This includes a 50-litre lockable box under the boot floor, ideal for storing charging cables and valuables.

Physical switches for audio and climate controls are expected to make a comeback, enhancing user-friendliness.
