Skoda Enyaq iV Review 2022

Skoda Enyaq iV Review 2022 – My Dream My Car : Hello friends, if you are thinking of buying a “Car” and you have no detailed idea about car, I welcome you to this blog. Today I will let you know – “Skoda Enyaq iV Review 2022”.

The Skoda Enyaq iV is a massively important car for the Czech brand. It might not be its first EV – that honour goes to a 1930s beer truck – in fact, it’s not even its first EV this century (the Citigo iV claims that title) but it is its first electric model set to compete in the family car market – a sector that has provided much success for the likes of the Octavia, Karoq and Kodiaq.

The Skoda Enyaq iV is an all-electric crossover based on the VW Group’s MEB born electric platform, which also underpins the likes of the Volkswagen ID4 and Audi Q4 e-tron crossovers. The platform can offer single-motor, rear-wheel-drive and dual-motor, AWD configurations, both of which are available on the Enyaq iV overseas. The VW Group, led by Skoda, is also working on a low-cost, front-wheel-drive version of the MEB platform that could be used on hatchbacks and smaller SUVs; read more about that here. Measuring 4,648mm long and 1,877mm wide, the Enyaq iV is only slightly smaller than the Skoda Kodiaq, but is strictly a 5-seat SUV with two rows of seats.

It’s also Skoda’s first car built on a dedicated EV platform and the first car using that Volkswagen Group MEB system to be built outside Germany, so there’s a lot riding on this.

Briefly of Skoda Enyaq iV 2022

Skoda’s first volume market full-electric car, the Enyaq iV, uses Volkswagen Group EV technology to good effect. Based around the Wolfsburg conglomerate’s advanced MEB electrified platform, it nevertheless manages to incorporate a very Skoda look and feel. And in terms of range, charging stats and equipment, will look attractive in the showroom for those who get the right price or lease deal.

The Enyaq iV ushers in a new era of design and engineering for Skoda. Perhaps it does. A less charitable way of looking at this latest EV is that it’s a Czech take on the same technology also used by its VW Group cousins, the Volkswagen ID.4 and the CUPRA Born. Like those two models, this one is a full-electric, 5-door Crossover, larger in size than, say, a Kia eNiro and offering, according to Skoda, almost the same interior space as its own conventional full-size SUV, the Kodiaq, though with the Enyaq, you can’t have seven seats.

Skoda Enyaq iV Review 2022 – My Dream My Car

Skoda Enyaq iV Review 2022

Skoda is introducing a number of updates to its Enyaq iV electric SUV model that will further enhance the ownership experience for drivers. The improvements mean that owners will gain improved functionality from the infotainment system, enhanced safety systems and faster DC rapid charging.

Although the Enyaq iV already has one of the fastest DC charging capabilities in the sector, the updated model will offer speeds of up to 135kW (up from 125kW) for all Enyaq iV 80 models built from January 2022. This will deliver reduced charging times for drivers when fast charging on a suitable (150kW+) public charger. Enyaq iV 60 models will now be able to charge at speeds up to 120kW (up from 100kW).

Customers who opt for all-wheel drive models (Enyaq iV 80x) will also benefit from a new ‘Traction mode’. Activated via the driving mode screen on the infotainment system, Traction mode increases ASR (Anti-Slip regulation) and provides optimal drive distribution between the front and rear axle. The new Battery Care Mode, which is controlled via the infotainment screen, has been designed to set the optimal charging settings for extending the life of the battery. When activated the next charging process will charge to a maximum of 80%.

The graphic displays of the infotainment system have also been updated to deliver even more information to drivers. Drivers using the navigation system will be able to see an estimated battery level on arrival when a destination is programmed. This is particularly useful in planning charging stops. In addition, the charging screen has been redesigned to show more information plus extra functionality including AC charge options and predefined charging and preconditioning for the cabin.

Customers choosing the Assisted Drive Package Plus with Travel Assist benefit from additional features. These include Narrow Lane Assist where the car recognises temporary yellow lines, barriers and cars in the next lane and guides the car through narrowed spaces. In addition, the steering wheel travel assist button will now allow drivers to toggle between travel assist modes as well as activating and de-activating the system. When the vehicle is started again the last mode used will be active.

Specification of Skoda Enyaq iV 2022

The ENYAQ iV is available with a choice of rear-wheel or four-wheel drive, three battery sizes and five power levels. The ENYAQ iV can be charged quickly, with a maximum capacity of 125kW. It has a range of up to 500 kilometres in the WLTP cycle, making this practical and ideal for everyday driving. To learn more about the five performance variants, click here.

The Enyaq will be built at Skoda’s main plant in Mlada Boleslav alongside the Superb iV, Octavia RS iV and the Citigo iV and will be the first Skoda in a long time to be RWD but will also be offered with an AWD setup. As for the interior, the Skoda Enyaq iV will get an 13-inch touchscreen display and a massive 585-litre boot.

Post launch, the Skoda Enyaq will compete against the likes of EV models from Volkswagen, Seat, Ford, Toyota, Kia and Hyundai.

Features of Skoda Enyaq iV 2022

Internationally, the electric SUV is offered in five trim levels, namely 50, 60, 80, 80X and the sporty vRS. The variants are differentiated by the size of the battery pack and the drive system fitted in them.

The Enyaq is a comfortable 5 seater SUV measuring 4649mm in length, which is marginally smaller than the current-gen Skoda Octavia. The four-wheeler follows the brand’s latest “Crystal Face” design philosophy, offering an illuminated front grille. The overall design is quite sharp with creases from the front to rear.

Compared to the exterior, the interior of the vehicle is subtle in nature with a lot of modern tech on offer. The safety equipment list includes 9 airbags, ADAS, proactive occupant protection, and crew protection assist along with a slew of other active and passive features.

Skoda Enyaq iV Review 2022 : Frist Impressive Looks

The Skoda Enyaq is a big, five-seat, pure electric family SUV. It’s offered with a choice of two batteries, a range of up to 333 miles, and it comes with vast amounts of passenger and luggage space as well as a comprehensive infotainment system. Standard equipment and options costs could be a little better but, even so, this is currently one of the best of the big electric SUVs.

The look of the Enyaq iV moves Skoda into a new design direction, the main theme being most obvious at the front, which can be optionally embellished with an illuminated ‘Crystal Face’ grille. Full-LED Matrix headlights at the front are joined at the rear by LED tail lights which include dynamic indicators and an animated ‘Coming/Leaving Home’ function. Measuring 4,648mm long and 1,877mm wide, this car is quite substantial in stature, though it’s actually shorter than a Skoda Octavia. Still, thanks to the clever design of the MEB platform it sits on, the Enyaq offers superb interior space. With the traction battery housed in the floor and a compact motor mounted beneath the cargo area base, this Czech EV has a cabin unburdened by the packaging compromises of a traditional internal combustion engine car.

That cabin is ‘inspired by modern living environments’, according to Skoda, and uses ‘natural, sustainably processed and recycled materials’. The fascia’s dominated by a central 13-inch infotainment touchscreen, which can also be worked by both voice and gesture control. There’s also a further 5.3-inch instrument binnacle display. A further interior highlight is the wonderfully-named optional ‘Jumbo Box’, which adds 6.2 litres of storage underneath the centre console. There’s comfortable space for a couple of adults on the back seat. And boot capacity is ample at 585-litres.

Skoda Enyaq iV Review 2022 : Power & Performance

One particular aspect of this is the Enyaq iV’s forte. Although it’s not going to surprise you when we say that the Enyaq iV rides very well, the sheer depth of its comfort shocked us. It’s not often that a car’s ride quality can impress with its pliancy within the first 100 metres, but that was the case here – it crushes speed humps and shrugs off ridges in a way that no car with 19-inch wheels has any right to. If you fit optional 21s, you’ll notice an increase in harshness over some surface irregularities, but overall, it’s still a very comfortable car.

Build up speed and that impression does not change at all – we took it over some very challenging Highland roads, and the suspension was never caught out, with brilliant damping control. Cornering is also better than you might expect, with limited bodyroll and incisive steering that allows you to really get it into the apex. Still, you’re always aware of its sheer weight so you tend to flow it through corners, rather than flicking it in.

With the adaptive dampers set in Comfort mode, body control is kept in check over rougher surfaces. In short, it’s safe and accurate in bends, and feels on top of its game. The steering wheel paddles moderate the driveline’s energy recuperation – flick the left-hand switch to increase drag, which equates to shifting down on an ICE-engined car. Even on its maximum setting it doesn’t slow with the conviction of a Tesla Model 3, so you’ll rarely find yourself one-pedal driving.

Skoda Enyaq iV 2022 is a provided Electric engine that produces 132 kW (179 PS) horsepower and 310 Nm of torque. It has No-cylinders. The top speed of this car is Estimated at 160 km/h and the acceleration time is 0-100 km/h in 8.7 seconds. It gives Automatic Transmission with Rear-Wheel Drive with Single-Speed Gear Box. It gets the Power Steering with Rack-Pinion and the minimum turning radius of its steering is 30.5 ft. As well as its front suspension is coil springs and the Rear Suspension is coil springs. The Tire size of this Car is 235/60R18 and the wheel size is 18 inches. Its battery type is Li-Ion Battery and the battery capacity is 62.0 kWh or the Useable battery is 58.0 kWh. The charge time is 6 hours and 15 minutes and the fast charging time is 30 minutes. The charge speed is 53 km/h and the fast charging speed is 460 km/h. The Range of this car is 330 km and the WTLP Range is 412 km.

Steering is fluid and well-weighted. There’s a little laziness in the turn-in, but once you’re dialled in, you give it no further thought. There’s pay-off in the city, because the turning circle is almost black-cab tight – as you’d expect in a car driven by its rear wheels. Braking is excellent – not a given on an EV – with a solid pedal and firm stopping.

Skoda Enyaq iV Review 2022 : Range and Battery Life

Skoda has kept the Enyaq iV range pretty simple to understand, with two battery sizes available: the 58kWh iV 60 and 77kWh iV 80. The smaller battery model produces 177bhp via a rear-mounted electric motor powering the rear wheels, while the 201bhp iV 80 is also rear-wheel-drive.

The manufacturer claims a range of 252 miles for the iV 60 and 329 miles for the iV 80. If you’re looking for the reassurance of all-wheel-drive, the 261bhp iV 80X SportLine should fit the bill, although it costs over £3,000 more than the RWD variant and range from a single charge falls slightly to 312 miles.

It will depend on which Enyaq you choose and how you’re charging it, but assuming you have the space and facilities for a domestic wallbox installation, eight to 10 hours will be sufficient to get you from flat to full overnight. Plan ahead to ensure your longer jaunts include faster 125kW chargers en-route and you can top back up to 80% capacity in 38 minutes.

Skoda Enyaq iV Review 2022 : Comfort Driving

The Skoda Enyaq iV has been designed as an electric car from the outset. That means it’s not compromised by taking out a heavy conventional engine at the front and having to accommodate the electric motor and batteries.

The Enyaq’s batteries are positioned under the floor, meaning they lower the car’s centre of gravity and don’t compromise on luggage space. The electric motor drives the rear wheels, giving the Skoda Enyaq a surprisingly nimble feel – particularly around town, where a tight turning circle will have you darting in and out of tight spaces like a London cabby.

At higher speeds, the steering is typically numb for a modern Volkswagen Group SUV (electric or otherwise). There’s nothing wrong with it, but if you want a car that’s going to be exciting to drive, you’d be better looking at the Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Skoda Enyaq iV 80 models come with selectable drive modes (available as an option on the 60 Nav). Selecting the sportier drive modes does little to tighten up the handling, but you’ll notice the stability control light flickering during constantly during enthusiastic cornering. There’s no hiding that this is a heavy SUV, and it does thump over broken road surfaces, particularly with the bigger 20- or 21-inch alloy wheels. It’s no worse than rivals in that regard, though.

While the Skoda Enyaq’s a fairly big car, it doesn’t feel particularly intimidating to drive. We’ve driven it on tiny roads in the Highlands of Scotland and didn’t wince every time we met a motorhome heading in the opposite direction. If you’re concerned about parking, look for one with the parking package (standard on the Enyaq iV 80) with its front parking sensors and rear-view camera. Rear parking sensors are fitted as standard across the range.

Skoda Enyaq iV Review 2022 : Infotainment and Connectivity

The Skoda Enyaq’s interior is a really comfortable place to sit. The inside has a clever design with excellent fabric upholstery everywhere, especially on the dash and the quite plush armrests. In most parts, it looks comfort and feels great, however, scratchy plastics may be found if you dig a bit deeper.

There’s lots of adjustability in the seats and clown-faced steering wheel, however, you’ll have to pay an extra £440 to get the driver’s seat electric and another £440 to have the passenger seat electric – curiously, the latter option also adds a massage function to the driver’s seat.

The skoda enyaq comes standard with a 13-inch infotainment system, albeit it isn’t the finest on the market. It can be a little sluggish at times, and the ‘Laura’ voice control system is fickle at best. There’s also a small digital driver’s display, which is useful enough.

At the very least, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are well supported, so you won’t have to rely exclusively on the in-car software.

Our Opinion

As an overall package the Skoda Enyaq iV 2022 Electric is an impressive car. It offers buyers a choice of versions, has an appealing design and an interior that is far better than anything the brand has previously offered for sale. The electric drivetrain and charging system’s performance gives the Skoda an edge over many of its rivals.
