Buying

What should I be paying?

Prices start from £44,825 for the regular entry-level 2WD variant, rising to £52,505 for the 4WD model and £54,370 for the vRS range-topper. 

On lease, you’re looking at around £430, £525 and £560 respectively, on a four-year agreement with a £10k down payment and 10,000 yearly mileage allowance, through Skoda’s own finance scheme.

Worth noting that the entry-level Enyaq SUV is available with a 58kWh battery and starting price of £38,970, whereas the Enyaq Coupe jumps straight in with the 77kWh battery. Like-for-like, you’re looking at a premium of about £2k for that coupe bodyshape.

That's still cheaper than its coupeified VW Group rivals mind, with the Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron starting from £52,825, and the VW ID.5 from £50,710.

What's the difference between versions?

The entry-level 80 model gets a full-length fixed panoramic sunroof, 19-inch alloy wheels, LED front and rear lights, ambient lighting, satellite navigation system, rear view camera and virtual cockpit as standard.

One-up SportLine Plus gets a sportier look thanks to its 20-inch alloy wheels, full LED Matrix beam headlights, black trims on the grille and window surrounds. Inside it also gets a Microsuede and leather upholstery, heated sports seats and carbon-effect decorative inserts. Sports suspension is also fitted as standard.

The vRS gets a bespoke bodykit, lowered chassis, 20in wheels, black leather trim and grey contrast stitching interior, and what Skoda is calling the “crystal face”, a clear plastic grille rammed with LEDs that lights up like a Christmas tree.

What's the best spec?

As is the way with most EVs, the entry-level single motor version is the pick of the bunch here, thanks to its entry-level price, perfectly adequate performance figures, and, most importantly of all, greatest range. 

As ever with coupeified crossovers, it sacrifices a little headroom and bootspace in favour of style compared to its full-size SUV sibling – and asks for a little extra in price. Our advice unless you’re truly hankering after that coupe bodyshape? Do yourself a favour and get yourself the regular SUV.
