There is no escaping this new trend of “coupe-style” SUVs. Launched by the first BMW X6 in 2007 and picked up first by competing premium brands and then by general manufacturers, it is also spreading to the segment of electric family SUVs: from the Audi Q4 Sportback to the Volkswagen ID.5 to the Chinese Aiways U6. . Now, everyone’s getting into crossovers with a brushed tail and a “coupe” badge that’s more marketing than really descriptive (we’re talking hatchbacks here, not actual coupes). Including Skoda, which has been offering the Enyaq iV in a Coupé version since the beginning of the year, whose rear evokes the world of compact “fastback” more than that of classic family SUVs.

Slightly longer and taller than the regular Enyaq by a handful of millimeters, the Enyaq coupé uses the same technical elements as its cousins ​​from Volkswagen and Audi. And it faces other models with a less classic silhouette in this category of electric SUVs such as the Hyundai Ioniq5 and the Kia EV6. We let you judge the aesthetic appeal of this SUV, which, from the three-quarter rear angle, looks like a raised big compact with a sunken stern. In this white color, it almost looks like a Tesla Model Y from this angle, even if the American remains longer by a good decimeter. In any case, we do not find it less aesthetically attractive than its cousins ​​from the Volkswagen group or most models in the segment, although our entry copy is content with a basic presentation.

From this angle and in this color, it almost looks like a Tesla Model Y. The presentation is less sporty without the Sportline trim.

On board, the Enyaq iV Coupé displays the same dashboard as the regular model. All the better because the interior presentation is precisely one of the strong points of the Skoda SUV: much more classic than in an ID.4/ID.5, than in a Hyundai Ioniq5 or a Nissan Ariya, the atmosphere flatters the eye and the of touch with an excellent quality of finish and very well assembled materials. There is still hard plastic in the lower parts of the dashboard, as in all other models of the Volkswagen group up to the D-segment since 2018. And the strange gray coating of our test model (“Lodge” option at €640) even seems to us of tastelessness. But overall, we prefer the Enyaq’s atmosphere to that of its Volkswagen cousin. And there is nothing to be ashamed of before the Audi Q4 e-tron. On the other hand, the ergonomics and responsiveness of the infotainment system are often taken for granted. Again, this is a recurring problem in Volkswagen group cars since 2018 and the arrival of these new generation models.

On board, the Skoda Enyaq Coupé is just as welcoming as the regular version.

In terms of interior space, the Enyaq Coupé stands out from the competition. Despite the brushed roof and the standard presence of a large panoramic glass roof, rear passengers benefit from generous headroom and equally appreciable knee room. It will only be necessary, as in all electric cars on the market with few exceptions, to deal with a fairly high foot position due to the presence of the batteries under the ground. The body of the coupé makes the trunk lose 15 liters compared to the normal Enyaq, but 570 liters remain (with 1/3-2/3 folding rear seat). Only the Tesla Model Y still does (much) better with its 854 liters thanks to its larger dimensions.

Despite the 15 liters less, the boot of the Enyaq Coupé is the most generous in the category with its 570 liters
