Volkswagen’s Double Debut – ID.3 GTX And ID.7 GTX Tourer

Volkswagen’s electrified momentum isn’t slowing down soon, more so with the recent double premiere of their latest sporty EVs… The ID.3 GTX (the range-topping and sportiest model in the ID.3 range). And, the ID.7 GTX Tourer (all-wheel drive and the fastest VW estate built thus far). It looks like GTX will be VW’s new ‘GTI’ moniker for their electric models. Plus, we could assume that more sporty GTX performance versions will be applied to the rest of their ID range.

I mean, Volkswagen’s already seen a lot of success with their previous GTX cars, as one in five newly registered ID.4 and ID.5 cars are the sportier GTX variants. And now, all those learnings and experience in fine-tuning EVs for a more dynamic and sporty drive have been transferred to the ID.3 and ID.7. As for the rear-wheel drive ID.3 GTX, you can soon spec them in one of two variants. The top-of-the-line Performance model even features DCC chassis control.

A New GTI For An Electrified Era

Elsewhere, the ID.3 GTX separates itself from the rest of the ID.3 range with its distinctive and bold exterior design. This includes a GTX-specific front bumper, black air intake with diamond finishing, and even new daytime running lights. In addition, there’s high gloss finishing here and there, on the side sills and rear diffuser. As standard, you’ll even get 20-inch Skagen alloy wheels, premium sports seats (fabric of leather), and red decorative stitching throughout the interior.

But, if you’re not convinced by the ID.3 GTX’s already-potent and powerful drivetrain, the ID.7 GTX Tourer might suit your needs, instead. This is, by far, the most powerful model in the line-up. And, just like the ID.4 GTX and ID.5 GTX… The new ID.7 GTX Tourer comes with a dual-motor all-wheel drive system. But, despite its impressive performance credentials, it’s also the more practical choice for larger families. This is courtesy of it being a pretty spacious, large EV station wagon.

Volkswagen’s Most Powerful Wagon Yet

To make it stand out more, the ID.7 GTX Tourer features a unique front bumper and grille, the latter being complemented with a honeycomb pattern, alongside some GTX-specific graphics and illuminated badges. Just like the ID.3 GTX, all the dark and black exterior elements have a high-gloss finish. Similarly, you’ll also get those 20-inch Skagen alloy wheels as standard, with individualised seats. Additionally, GTX lettering on the backrests, and red piping on those seats.

On top of that, you’ll find way more red elsewhere… Seams on the dash and door sills, and more red stitches. You’re even met with a GTX-specific multi-function steering wheel. Impressively, despite its huge battery pack and carrying an additional motor on the front axle, the VW ID.7 GTX Tourer’s cargo capacity is 1,714 litres. This is just as large as the rear-wheel drive ID.7s. So far, this seems like a blossoming start for Volkswagen’s sporty models in an electrified future.
