The full Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV range is now available to order, with prices starting from £44,825. As its name suggests, the Enyaq Coupe iV is a coupe-SUV version of the regular Enyaq iV, with a sleeker roofline giving it improved aerodynamics and a slightly longer range of up to 345 miles in its most efficient form.
With its SUV sibling already being on sale for a couple of years now, the Enyaq Coupe iV joins a lineup of strong rivals that include the Audi Q4 e-tron Sportback, Kia EV6, Ioniq 5 and Volkswagen ID.5.
2022 Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV: trim levels
Whereas at launch buyers could only have an Enyaq Coupe iV in high-performance vRS guise, there are now three other specifications to choose from. The range kicks off with the Enyaq Coupe iV 80 which starts from £44,825. This comes as standard with a heap of equipment including an expansive 13-inch touchscreen, 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, a glass roof, and a reversing camera.
Starting at £50,405, the SportLine Plus model adds a more aggressive bodykit, larger 20-inch alloys, Matrix LED headlights, lower and sportier suspension, suede and leather upholstery, heated front seats and tri-zone climate control. Buyers can upgrade further to a more powerful dual-motor all-wheel-drive 80x SportLine Plus model for an extra £2,000.
Topping the range is the aforementioned vRS model which boasts a punchy 295bhp as well as model-specific 20-inch wheels, black leather upholstery and an illuminated front grille.
Buyers can also expand on the standard specifications with a handful of option packs, named Clever, Plus, Advanced and Maxx, which all offer ascending levels of additional kit.
From the front, the Enyaq Coupe iV shares the same design as the regular SUV. From the front doors back, the roof of the car gradually slopes towards a rakish looking hatchback tailgate, giving it a sportier look. From the side, the rear window line has been lowered to match the redesigned roof, while a range of alloy wheels from 19 to 21 inches are offered. At the back, the rear hatch gets an angular line across the full width of the tailgate, with slim-looking lights and a capitalised Skoda logo.
SportLine and vRS models feature a slightly different design to the rest of the lineup, with larger front air intakes and a different badge on the front wings. They also boast lowered suspension, with a 15mm lower ride height at the front and 10mm lower at the rear.
Interior and technology
The interior of the Enyaq Coupe iV is essentially the same as the existing model’s, with the same clean dashboard design fitted with a 5.3-inch digital dial cluster, a 13-inch infotainment touchscreen and a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel. Standard connectivity features include Apple Carplay and Android Auto, over-the-air software updates, plus a smartphone app that enables owners to schedule charging and precondition the car’s interior before starting a journey.
Buyers will be able to customise the interior with the same Design Selection packs as the regular model. The ‘Loft Design’ specification comes as standard, with buyers able to upgrade to the Lounge, Suite and Eco Suite packs, which feature suede, leather and sustainable fabrics, respectively.
SportLine and vRS models get a sportier-looking interior, with bucket seats, carbon fibre effect trim pieces and aluminium pedal covers.
Practicality and boot space
Every model is fitted with a fixed panoramic glass roof, which is made from special heat-reflecting glass, meaning it doesn’t require a roller blind. That frees up additional headroom for rear passengers. According to Skoda, the Enyaq Coupe iV offers a similar amount of headroom for rear passengers as the Octavia Estate – in spite of the tapered roofline.
The design does slightly impact boot space though, with the Coupe offering 570 litres of storage compared to the 585 litres you’d find in the regular Enyaq SUV. However, this is much less of a hindrance than found in most coupe-SUVs, plus the boot also features a full-width storage space for the charging cables.
All of the safety features are carried over from the regular Enyaq SUV, including Skoda’s Travel Assist 2.5 driver assistance suite, which includes adaptive cruise control, adaptive lane assist and automatic emergency braking (AEB). When activated, this system allows the car to stop and start automatically in traffic, while matching the speed of the surrounding cars – all under supervision from the driver. Pedestrian and cyclist detection is also fitted, plus cross traffic alert and blind spot monitoring.
Powertrains, range and charging
Unlike the standard Enyaq SUV, the coupe is only available with the larger 77kWh battery. Entry-level models are powered by a rear-mounted electric motor producing 201bhp, while the Enyaq Coupe iV 80x gets an additional motor mounted on the front axle for four-wheel drive and an increased power output of 261bhp. Skoda has yet to reveal any performance figures, but both powertrains have a top speed of 102mph.
Above the standard models is the vRS, the brand’s first ever fully-electric performance model. It's powered by the same dual-motor setup as the 80x, but with an increased power output of 295bhp meaning it sprints from 0-62mph in 6.5 seconds.
Thanks to its aero-efficient design, the Enyaq Coupe iV 80 can manage a range of up to 345 miles between charging stops in single motor form – around 10 more miles than the equivalent SUV version. Opt for the SportLine 80x model, and the dual-motor powertrain reduces overall range slightly to 320 miles.
The Coupe can be charged at speeds of up to 135kW, the same as its sibling. This means a 10 to 80% top up takes 29 minutes, while a full home charge at 11kW takes around six hours, rising to nine hours if connected to a 7kW charger.
