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 (570 litres plays 585 litres), and there’s only a small difference in rear headroom thanks to the panoramic glass roof, which comes 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.

What’s the tech like?

Behind the steering wheel is a small 5.4in digital instrument panel which displays speed, charge and the status of the adaptive cruise control, which is simple and clear to read. 

In the centre of the dash lies the 13in touchscreen that mostly works well, but can be irritating at times. The Enyaq is the least affected by the VW Group’s weird obsession with touchscreen controls, but you’ll still prefer to use the steering wheel buttons to change volume rather than the touch-sensitive slider underneath the screen.

Oh, and it’s easy to unlock the doors or turn on the hazard lights by mistake 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.

Do you get a frunk?

Nope, but you do get a compartment under the floor to store any storage cables, which means you don’t have to completely empty the boot to get at them. 

FYI, that 570-litre boot (1,610 litres with the seats folded) is bigger than its related rivals too, the Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron getting 520 litres (1,490 litres seats folded), and the VW ID.5 549 litres (1,561 litres seats folded).
