Are we surprised that Skoda comes with a coupé version of the popular Enyaq iV? New. Firstly, the brand has almost completely teased the new SUV. And secondly, there is also a version with a low roofline of the technically identical Audi Q4 E-Tron and Volkswagen ID.4: the Audi Q4 Sportback E-Tron and Volkswagen ID.5.
What the Skoda Enyaq Coupé iV has in common with its stable mates is its amazingly beautiful appearance. In general, coupé SUVs are the ugly ducklings in SUV land, with weird proportions and failed rears, but the Volkswagen Group is showing that it can be done differently. As far as we are concerned, the Enyaq Coupé iV is absolutely successful.
But then the question is: what's in it for you? Due to the sloping roof, the volume of the luggage compartment has become 15 liters smaller (570 compared to 585 liters) and you are also more likely to sit in the back seat with your crown against the roof. To make you feel less claustrophobic, Skoda gives you a panoramic glass roof on the Enyaq Coupé iV as standard.
The slimmer-looking Enyaq also has an advantage. Due to its better streamline, on paper a few more range kilometers are added. The regular Skoda Enyaq iV 80 can reach a maximum of 537 kilometers on a full battery. The same version as the coupé buzzes almost 10 kilometers away.
There are four engine variants of the Enyaq Coupé iV: the 60 (180 hp, 58 kWh, rear-wheel drive), the 80 (204 hp, 77 kWh, also rear-wheel drive), the 80x (265 hp, 77 kWh, all-wheel drive) and the RS ( 306 hp, 77 kWh, also four-wheel drive). The latter is a brother of the Volkswagen ID.5 GTX and is not limited to 160 km/h, like the other Enyaqs, but to 180 km/h.
It is the Enyaq Coupé iV RS that will be the first to appear at dealers in May. In this way, Skoda can first skim the upper part of the market. The more affordable versions will be launched in July. Good to know: the models with rear-wheel drive are suitable for towing a caravan of 1200 kilos. The 4WD variants are allowed on the road with 1400 kilos on the towbar.
