Seats are super comfortable. No cramps or having to move around during long journeys. Back support is amazing.
Great road holding
Very comfortable ride. Breezes over bumps and potholes etc.
High quality interior - better than that of the VW ID4
Very quiet at high speed - you can whisper and hear very clearly.
Great size Info Screen @ 13"
Great acceleration - quicker than the stated 0-60mph.
Super size boot and the Security Cover is retractable (unlike the ID4 on strings)
Lots of interior space - passengers can stretch right out, front and rear.
Cabin storage is good. Plenty of bins for the usual stuff you leave in a car.
Great visibility at the front and sides. Rear while more restricted is still more than acceptable.
Sound system is really good.
Cruise Control On/Off switch fiddly. Should not be on the same stalk as the indicators, as these can be activated accidentally.
Skoda App needs improving.
Mine does not have a Washer Fluid Reservoir Low Warning light?
Lane Control function is so fierce that I always switch it off. Apparently Skoda are rectifying this
Only 50KW Rapid Charging as standard.
Software can occasionally be temperamental when using the Info Screen.
No front seat 12V input
Very good adjustment of part in the car, excellent quality
space (booth, interior) are huge almost like my skoda superb
equipment and option
head up display
Driving sensation is excellent
Style, very good looking
very good suspension and ride on bad road
gps system, system of the car not that great
no heat pump by defaut (option)
option are expensive but necessary
Effortless to drive....smooth as you like
Fantastic space inside...and a gigantic boot!
Great quality interior and car overall..everything shuts with a thunk!
Good range...actually surprised us! Around 180 miles with miles left to spare at motorway speeds, fully loaded, with 5 people and a roofbox!
Good looking car!
Lack of heating controls as buttons is annoying
Infotainment is buggy and not the fastest to respond
