We got an up close look at the VinFast VF 7, VF 8, and VF 9 at the NY Auto Show. Plus, we got a demo of the Smart Services and a ride along in the VF 8. Very impressed with both!
Overall, I was impressed. At the LA Auto Show, I had my doubts because they wouldn't even let us touch the cars. But this time, we sat in it and got the ride along. Materials felt nice and quality was good. And for very early software, it seemed pretty good, too.
It was too short to do a fair comparison to the Mach-E (and I own one). But compared to other cars at the auto show that I rode it, it ranks near the top. It was just as good or better than the Ariya and definitely better than the INDI ONE. It didn't feel cheap, that's for sure. And the interior feels like a car -- it has a good combo of screen and buttons. It felt solid, too. The ride itself was smooth & quick but we were on a small tack indoors.
