Is the Skoda Enyaq a good car?,

The Skoda Enyaq is an all-electric SUV, and the first ground-up EV Skoda has come up with. It goes up against alternatives like the mechanically similar Volkswagen ID4, the striking Nissan Ariya and the spacious Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Not that you’d really be able to tell this is some special, bespoke electric car just from looking at it. That’s sort of the point, though – not everyone wants to look like they’ve just stolen a vehicle prop from a sci-fi film shoot. It’s about as ‘yeah, that’s alright’ as car design gets. You’re not going to find it in the Tate Modern in 40 years, but it won’t scare children as you do the school run either.

Things kick off with the Skoda Enyaq’s huge front grille. You don’t need a grille in an electric car because there isn’t a big engine to cool. Skoda seems to think you need one though to help you get used to switching into an EV. The grille is flanked by slim headlights, plus functional air intakes.

You might spot a bit of a rubbish fake vent on the wheel arches down the side, plus some extra creases to make it stand out a bit, while the back gets nothing more outlandish than an extended spoiler, big Skoda badging and some angular taillights. Oh and the bumpers vary in colour depending on your pick of trim.

The interior of the Skoda Enyaq is more appealing from the off. It’s smartly designed and gets nice upholstery throughout, including on the dash plus for the rather squishy armrests. It looks and feels really good, even in the cheaper models.

There’s plenty of adjustment in the seats and clown-faced steering wheel too, although you’ll have to pay extra to make the driver’s and front passenger’s seats electric.

There’s plenty of head and legroom in the rear row too. It’s 70mm longer than the Volkswagen ID4 the Enyaq shares so many parts with, so you’ll easily get three adults in the back. Material quality is a bit of a downgrade back there though, and you’ll have to pay extra for USBs in the back.

Every version of the Skoda Enyaq gets a 13.0-inch infotainment system as standard, though it’s not the best on the market. It’s a bit laggy at times and the ‘Laura’ voice command system is temperamental at best. There’s a rather tiny digital driver’s display too, though it is functional enough.

You’ve got a roomy 585-litre boot as well, which is nice and square plus dead easy to get things in and out of thanks to a complete lack of a boot lip.

There are two battery versions of the Skoda Enyaq — the 60 and the 80. The 60 uses a 62kWh battery pack that will return 246 miles between charges, and a 180hp electric motor. The 80 takes capacity up to 82kWh, with 338 miles of range, plus a more powerful 204hp electric motor. Or you can have the 80x which uses the same battery with 265hp and four-wheel drive but a slight drop in range to 318 miles.

The 60 is the one to go for if you can deal with the shorter range — performance is punchy enough and it’s cheaper to buy.

If you have a 7kW home charger it will take around nine hours to charge from empty to full and that will cost around a tenner.

The Skoda Enyaq is most at home around town with its fantastic turning circle and great visibility making it a doddle to drive about in. You will feel the bumps a bit in town or on potholed country roads — the stiffer suspension that comes with keeping a heavier electric car in check comes into play here.

It’s great out on the motorway, though. It’s quiet and comfortable to be in at speed, but don’t expect it to be too much fun when things get twisty.

If you’re looking for a great all-round SUV, the Skoda Enyaq is worth considering. It does all the basics incredibly well, but it’s not going to get the heart racing. Just make sure you’re paying attention to the options list too — things can get surprisingly pricey. But to mitigate against that, head this way to see the latest carwow deals on a new Skoda Enyaq.

How much is the Skoda Enyaq?

Our 3 most popular versions of the Skoda Enyaq are:

One thing to remember is that the Plug-in Car Grant scheme has now ended, so there are no government hand-outs to make the cost of a new electric car more affordable. However, the Enyaq is still one of the more keenly priced electric SUVs, certainly if you stick with the standard specification. It’s a lot more affordable than a Tesla Model Y, for example.

The trouble is there are lots of tempting options which Skoda bundles together in packs, some of which cost thousands of pounds. So think carefully about what you really need from the car before ticking too many option boxes. The price can jump up a lot.

Performance and drive comfort

Strong performance and comfortable at speed, but not as much fun as a Tesla

In town 

Electric cars make a lot of sense for town driving. There are no exhaust emissions to harm local air quality for one thing.

For another, there’s the way an electric car sprints into gaps in traffic. There’s no faffing about waiting for a gearbox to decide which gear you need, as there’s only one forward gear. Even though the Enyaq is a two-tonne car, it really shifts when the lights turn green.

The ride is a bit hard around town – blame the firm suspension needed to keep such a heavy car under control – but it stops short of being uncomfortable.

The turning circle is tiny for a car of this size, which makes the big Skoda easy to manouevre. Every car comes with front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera to help squeeze this large SUV into small parking spots.

On the motorway

Head out onto big A-roads and motorways, and you’ll find the Enyaq’s ride becomes smoother as speeds rise. In fact, the Skoda is a very comfortable car in which to rack up big mileages.

The cabin is eerily quiet with no engine noise, and there’s not much wind or road noise either. You won’t have to raise your voice to make yourself heard, even if you are talking to someone in the back seats.

Acceleration is definitely more punchy if you choose the 80 or 80x over the 60, but the entry-level car is far from slow and the long range makes it well suited to motorway travel.

On a twisty road

On country roads you never quite shake the feeling that this is a big and heavy car. All that weight is carried low down (the batteries are under the floor), which helps keep body lean in check. Even so, the Enyaq isn’t as agile as Tesla Model 3.

The Enyaq is happier if you take things a bit easier, in which case it corners neatly and copes reasonably well with patchy road surfaces.

If you want your Skoda to handle wintery conditions, think about the 80x. Whereas the other models send power to the rear wheels, the 80x is all-wheel drive and will take care of itself if there’s snow and ice about.

Space and practicality

Lots of room, but some practical features cost extra

It’s easy to get comfortable behind the wheel of the Skoda Enyaq. There’s a lot of head and legroom, so even very tall drivers will be fine.

You get plenty of adjustment, too, so shorter drivers will be able to get nice and close to the wheel with the seat set high enough for a good view out.

Even the basic Loft spec cars have adjustable lumbar support, which will please back-pain sufferers. Go for the optional Comfort Seat package for electrical adjustment of the seat position and lumbar, along with a memory function so your ideal driving position is just a button press away.

There’s lots of storage all around you. The door bins are huge and felt-lined to stop anything rattling around. You’ll find more storage at the bottom of the centre console, and twin-cupholders with a raised section that grips the base of a bottle of water so you can take off the top with one hand.

The glovebox is a sensible size, and there’s more space under the driver’s armrest. So whatever odds and ends you like to keep within arm’s reach on a journey, the Enyaq should have room for them all. The front of the cabin is very practical indeed.

Space in the back seats 

Rear-seat passengers will be just as happy as those in the front. The huge cabin has lots of legroom and headroom, so a six-foot tall passenger can travel behind an equally tall driver with room to spare.

Wide-opening doors and Isofix mounting points for the outer seats mean even bulky rearward facing child seats are easy to fit.

If you need to carry three passengers in the back, the flat floor really helps, and air vents between the front seats keep everyone at a comfortable temperature. It’s just a shame that you have to pay extra for USB charging so rear-seat passengers can keep their phones topped up.

Boot space

You’d think Skoda would have made more effort to use the space at the front of the car where you’d find the engine in a petrol or diesel. But no, the Enyaq doesn’t have the ‘frunk’ (front trunk) that you find in other electric cars such as the Tesla Model Y.

That’s just about our only complaint though. The boot at the back is so big you probably won’t worry that there’s no luggage space at the front, with a capacity of 585 litres. That’s enough space for holiday luggage for a family of four.

With the rear seats folded there’s a slight step to the floor, but you can adjust the height of the boot floor so there’s no abrupt change of height so long as you specify the optional Transport Package. This also includes levers either side of the tailgate to fold the back seats down without having to walk around to the back doors.

There’s space under the floor to store the luggage cover when it’s not needed, so you won’t need to leave it behind.

Interior style, infotainment and accessories

Stylish and well designed, but the most luxurious finishes add to the price

From the outside, the Enyaq is a bit, well, ordinary. It’s not ugly, but nobody is going to walk into a lamppost when they pass one in the street either.  

But it is a lot more interesting on the inside. It doesn’t follow Skoda’s usual interior design, in fact it looks like nothing else the company makes.

To some eyes the two-spoke steering wheel looks a bit like a clown’s face, but unless you find clowns creepy it’s a smart design with proper buttons insteading of annoying touchpads (we’re looking at you, Volkswagen).

Look through the wheel, and you’ll see the dinkiest digital display we can think of. While the likes of Audi love to replace conventional dials with large screens that can be configured to show all sorts of info, Skoda has kept things simple and compact. You can still tweak the information the screen shows, and after a few days driving the Enyaq we really didn’t miss having a bigger display. It shows you what you need to know, like the car’s speed, clearly and quickly.

Even entry-level models get the same 13.0-inch touchscreen display. That’s a serious size, and the screen is crisp and clear. You get shortcut buttons to help make navigation easier. However, it’s irritating that the aircon controls are on the screen rather than being kept separate, and the screen’s responses can be laggy. Instead of pressing the screen you can use voice commands through the Enyaq’s digital assistant, Laura. Call her name and you should be able to control lots of functions by telling Laura what you want, but in practice it’s a bit hit and miss.

You can mirror your smartphone using Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and there are USB-C ports to keep devices charged. Wireless charging is part of the Clever Package on the 60 and 80, and standard on the 80 SportLine and 80x SportLine.

MPG, emissions and tax

Mpg? You don’t need to worry about that with an electric car like the Enyaq. The equivalent in the world of battery power is miles per kilowatt hour (kWh). The more miles a car will do on each kWh, the more efficient it is. The Enyaq’s figures vary between 3.7 and 4.0 according to the official figures, which is competitive with other electric cars of similar size and performance.

The government is keen to encourage drivers to switch to electricity, so even though you can no longer get a grant to make buying a battery electric car cheaper, there are tax breaks to make owning one more appealing. You don’t need to pay a penny in Vehicle Excise Duty tax at present, either as part of the on-the-road charges or in future years.

Being a zero-emissions vehicle, the Enyaq also swerves the car tax surcharge for cars costing over £40,000 when the first year’s car tax runs out, which would otherwise apply to every Enyaq except the base model. That saves £520 every 12 months compared with running a petrol or diesel car.

If you are thinking of the Enyaq as a company car, the tax breaks are even more generous. You’ll pay next to nothing in tax each month, with a huge saving over any fossil-fuel powered SUV.

Safety and security

The Skoda Enyaq scored five stars out of five from the safety experts at Euro NCAP. The adult occupant protection score was 94%, the child occupant protection score was 89%, with a 71% rating for protecting vulnerable road users and an 82% score for the car’s safety assistance technology.

Every car gets front, side, and side curtain airbags. Front assist – Skoda’s name for its autonomous emergency braking system – is also standard fit. You get Lane assist to help you stay in your lane too.

As well as the ISOFIX mounts for child seats in the back, you also get mounts in the front passenger seat, which is handy if you want to keep a close eye on a young child while travelling without another adult.

Basic cars have central locking and manual child safety locks. High-spec models come with electrically operated child locks.

Reliability and problems

The biggest issue we’ve heard of with the Enyaq is the glitchy infotainment system. Otherwise running an Enyaq should be pretty straightforward. Skoda deserves its reputation for building reliable cars, and troublesome touchscreen aside the Enyaq looks set to maintain those standards.

Electric cars in general are simpler than petrol and diesel cars, with fewer moving parts to go wrong.

If you do have a problem, the car comes with a three-year, 60,000-mile warranty. The battery is covered for eight years and 100,000 miles.
