Audi Q4 E-tron Sportback Edition 1 Review and Comparisons to the Skoda Enyag 80 Suite

12 Jul 2022

Audi Q4 e-tron Sportback Pros and Cons

Pros:
  • Matrix LED headlights with dynamic light sequencing.

  • Has the Safety Pack Plus which includes blind spot warning and rear cross traffic alert. 

  • 3 zone Climate Control compared to the Enyaq's 2 zone Climate Control.

  • USB C inputs x 2 in the rear for back seat passenger use. The Enyaq had these in the front only.

  • S Line Trim which enhances the aesthetics of the car inside and out. Black Styling Package and stainless steel pedals.

  • Heated front seats - not available on the Enyaq Suite.

  • Automatic Boot opening via the key. Not available on my trim of the Enyaq.

  • Electrically adjustable front seats.

  • Privacy glass - again not available on my Enyaq 80 trim.

  • Boot on the Sportback is actually bigger than that on the conventional SUV e-tron.

  • Infotainment and software generally is better than that of the Enyaq.

  • Laminated side glass which makes the car even quieter than the already quiet Enyaq.

  • 125kW rapid charging. My Enyaq was capped at 50kW.

  • Evasive Assist and Sideguard Assist

  • Swerve Assist and Turn Assist

  • Sonos Sound System - no premium sound system on my Enyaq.

  • Ambient Lighting Plus Package.

  • Despite the Sport suspension of the S Line trim, the ride is impeccable. Even speed bumps are well resolved and again better than the Enyaq.

  • Excellent handling and drive. Noticeably better than the Skoda Enyaq.

  • 12v sockets throughout the car. Better than the Enyaq which only had one such socket - right in the boot!

  • Air conditioning controls in the back for rear passengers to use. Not in the Enyaq.

  • Good vehicle distance warning software which gives you how many seconds the vehicle in front of you actually is.

  • Sport seating is firm but comfortable.

  • Wireless Phone Charging - not available on my particular Enyaq.

Cons:
  • Unlike the Skoda, the Audi has no reversing camera. By far and away the most glaring of the Cons frankly, and I will have to buy a camera separately. No excuse, Audi - this is poor. Most lesser cars have reversing cameras as standard, including my former Enyaq Suite!

  • The Skoda has a heated steering wheel as standard - not on the Audi.

  • No forward sensors. Not quite as glaring a faux pas as no reversing camera but still unacceptable for a car at this level.

  • No rear wiper and small rear screen

  • The Skoda has a better Home Screen which combines the Map, Car Play etc along with other features. The Audi Home Screen is just a list of different functions.

Audi Q4 E-tron Sportback Edition 1 Review and Comparisons to the Skoda Enyag 80 Suite

All in all a great car and now my fourth and definitely favourite EV frankly.

Drives beautifully and has great aesthetics both inside and out. The car has many great extras too.

The only real letdown though is the lack of a Reversing camera which is only standard on top spec Vorsprung trim.

    I once drove a Q4 e-tron and it had a horribly hard chassis (it had 21 inch wheels). What's your experience with that?
