Right for You?
The 2023 VinFast VF8 stands out from the crowd with attractive styling, and the interior is comfortable and spacious. Some drivers might take extra time to adapt to the VinFast VF8’s center-screen layout, but the design is intuitive. The VF8 also shines with competitive power and range; however, the difficulty in driving the car smoothly and the overly soft suspension makes the ride uncomfortable, and the fact that we almost rolled into another vehicle is unacceptable. The VF8 has great potential, but some issues are difficult to overlook. Until these issues get rectified, it’s difficult to recommend the purchase of a $50,000 vehicle over proven models such as the Nissan Ariya, Tesla Model Y, Volkswagen ID.4 or Volvo XC40 Recharge.
