BMW i3 reminds us of a stormtrooper helmet
Here is another comparison of Volkswagen e-Golf and BMW i3 (REx version). Both models belong in different classes, but this doesn't prevent comparisons.
As this is a base introduction review (first drive and overall comparison), it's more suited for new customers or the general public.
Funny thing is that the flashy design of BMW i3 from the start was compared to a "stormtrooper helmet", while the Volkswagen e-Golf reminds us of conventional Golfs, having just some blue accents added.
Two different approaches are probably the biggest difference between these two cars.
According to the review, e-Golf is more practical (due five seats for example). i3 is more futuristic, fun (with higher power) and offers a more premium experience.
