2022-03-10: First drive: 2022 Skoda Enyaq iV vRS Coupe

What's all this about?

The Skoda Enyaq already looked a bit sporty, but it has nothing on its svelte new sibling, the Enyaq Coupe. Designed to look more elegant while still providing a big boot, the newcomer is marked out by its sloping roofline from the B-pillar back.

Like the slightly more practical Enyaq, the Enyaq Coupe will come with a choice of two different battery packs and a selection of different power outputs, and Skoda has confirmed a high-performance vRS model will be offered. In fact, the vRS will be the only model on sale in the UK at first, with other variants following on.

Another less practical version of an SUV?

Yes, basically, although it would be a bit unfair to call the Enyaq Coupe impractical. Despite the apparently less useful shape, the Coupe comes with a 570-litre boot, which is just 15 litres short of the standard Enyaq’s capacity. Skoda also claims the legroom is plentiful and the rear headroom is “on par with that of a Skoda Octavia Estate”. Otherwise, the cabin will be familiar to anyone who has driven an Enyaq, or indeed any other Skoda, in recent years.

Changing faces

There is more to the design tweaks than just a new back end, though. Skoda has also given the Enyaq Coupe a different front apron and body-coloured side skirts designed to accentuate the car’s length. There’s also a panoramic glass roof as standard, and Skoda says that’s key to the interior space because it’s thinner than a conventional roof.

What's under the bonnet?

Like the normal Enyaq, the Coupe comes with a choice of two battery packs, with a 62kWh ‘60’ model and an 82kWh ‘80’ version, although the ‘80’ will be the sole option in the UK. Because the Enyaq Coupe is more streamlined than the standard Enyaq, that ‘80’ battery will be sufficient for a range of up to 339 miles – a slight increase on the standard Enyaq, which covers up to 330 miles on a single charge.

Whether that’s achievable, however, will depend on which electric motor you choose. The basic ‘80’ comes with a 204hp motor as standard. But you can upgrade to the more powerful all-wheel-drive 80x, which has two motors and churns out 265hp.

Finally, the vRS model takes the ‘80x’ powertrain and ups the ante with a few more horsepower. In fact, it takes the output to 299hp, putting the Enyaq Coupe on a par with the Volkswagen ID.4 GTX.

That vRS sounds tasty...

So it should, with all-wheel drive, 299hp and 460Nm of torque, the vRS will get from 0-62mph in 6.5 seconds, while the top speed is 112mph. It also comes with sports suspension that’s 15mm lower at the rear and 10mm lower at the front – a set-up that should aid handling.

It also gets its own design options, including the trademark red reflector strip on the rear bumper, an illuminated grille and black exterior trim. It also comes with a choice of two interior ambiences, both of which include aluminium pedal covers and carbon-fibre-effect trim, while there’s green piping on the seats. As standard, there’s Suedia microfibre upholstery, but you can upgrade to perforated leather if you prefer.

So how much will all this cost?

We don’t know yet, but we won’t have long to find out. Skoda says the order books will open in late February or early March for the vRS, with the other versions going on sale in May. We expect prices to be slightly higher than for the equivalent Enyaq SUVs, which starts at just under £35,000.
