    Great Electric SUV Overall But Room For Improvement 8.3

    owner review of Škoda Enyaq iV 80 Suite 2021

    • 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

    • Good range.

    • 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 frunk

    • No front seat 12V input

    Fantastic family car! 6.4

    owner review of Škoda Enyaq iV 60kw loft 2021

    • 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
