- Enyaq Coupe
What is it like on the inside?
Skoda insists that practicality hasn’t been harmed by the swoopy new roofline of the Enyaq Coupe – the boot is a mere 15 litres smaller and there’s only a small difference in rear headroom thanks to the panoramic glass roof as standard.
The rest of the interior is standard Enyaq, and we’ve been reasonably impressed with it since the SUV version was launched. There’s good room for everyone and the usual practical Skoda touches such as the umbrella in the driver’s door and ice scraper in the tailgate.
That’s not to say it’s all smooth sailing – we’ve got our issues with all of the SUVs that the Volkswagen Group has spun off the MEB platform and the company craze for ditching interior buttons for touchscreen controls. The Enyaq is the least affected by it, but you’ll still prefer to use the steering wheel controls to change volume rather than the touch-sensitive slider underneath the central screen, and it’s easy to unlock the doors or turn on the hazard lights if the cupholders are full and someone’s trying to reach their phone in the wireless charging tray.
There’s no apparent logic to the physical buttons that Skoda has opted to keep – no direct climate controls but rather a shortcut button that takes you to the right part of the touchscreen sub-menu architecture, as well as routes through to the safety assistance menus and parking help.
The vRS version of the Enyaq Coupe gets a bespoke interior trim selection that befits its status at the top of the Enyaq tree, including perforated leather sports seats with integrated headrests, but nothing that pulls it particularly clear of the rest of the range.
