VOLKSWAGEN has upgraded its ID.4 and ID.5 electric models, with prices now starting from £46,035 and topping out from £56,545.
The two electric SUVs feature a new-generation infotainment system, complete with a larger 12.9-inch screen and intuitive menu structure and controls - including illuminated sliders for cabin temperature.
The optional augmented-reality head-up display has been enhanced, and Volkswagen has moved the driving mode selector to the steering column - as in the ID.7 - to create space for the larger infotainment display.
A new IDA voice assistant, which responds more precisely to natural voice commands offers new functions including cloud-based weather information and the status of sporting events or stock market prices.
The previous Volkswagen Digital Sound Package with subwoofer has been replaced by a premium sound system from Harman Kardon, featuring 480 Watts of output and 10 speakers. The Harman Kardon sound system is optional on the rear-wheel-drive Pro trims and standard on the 4MOTION GTX versions in the UK.
All ID.4 and ID.5 versions are powered by Volkswagen's new APP550 drive unit which was Introduced for the first time for the ID.7. The unit delivers 286ps and gives the vehicles 75-per-cent more torque than previously, jumping from 310 to 545 Nm.
The all-wheel-drive ID.4 GTX and ID.5 GTX now deliver a system power of 340ps), equivalent to an increase of 41ps taking their 0 to 62 mph time down to 5.4 seconds.
The combined range of the ID.4 has increased to up to 337 miles - 10.5 miles further than before - while the ID.5 SUV coupe now has a range of up to 339 miles which is an extra 11.8 miles.
Faster charging is also possible and the vehicles can take on enough energy for a further 110 miles in about 10 minutes.
