Skoda Enyaq iV 60 Suite 2021 UK review – Autocar

That’s denied to 60 purchasers, which is a pity if you like driving because it offers you something to do. Obviously, with the vehicle being rear-wheel drive, there’s no torque steer yanking on the wheel as you put the power down, however that’s most likely the only idea as to which wheels are driven. It trips decently, too; the 60 better than the 80, I think, with a little bit more compliance (although the 80 I tried wore 21in rims to the 60’s 20s, both optional) and definitely much better body control. The 60 takes a ‘whump’ to settle after a crest or dip.

There’s a quite big glass location, too, which makes the interior airy. Most significantly, the windshield, which pushes up until now forwards that it’s more MPV than SUV. The number of territories this crossover crosses over are perhaps unmatched.

Complete is strong, materials feel strong even if they’re not soft, and there’s a basic digital control panel and, possibly certainly, a group-sourced central touchscreen. A minimum of the temperature is completely shown and big enough for a basic finger jab. The dash is formed so that you can rest your hand on it while you’re distractedly prodding the 4 buttons it requires to shut off the infuriating lane keep assist.

On the 80, there’s the alternative of paddles on the guiding wheel, which increase or reduce the quantity of engine braking. That’s denied to 60 purchasers, which is a pity if you like driving since it offers you something to do. As it is, there’s the auto alternative, which thinks of junctions ahead and mostly forecasts deceleration levels well, or 2 basic regen options– quite coasty, and not quite so coasty.

Either way, there’s no one-pedal driving. It’ll sneak unless you brake to a grinding halt. No bother. The driveline is smooth and linearly responsive in either case, in a manner that quite fits a Skoda. Ditto the steering, which is precise and moderately and consistently weighted.

Obviously, with the cars and truck being rear-wheel drive, there’s no torque steer pulling on the wheel as you put the power down, however that’s probably the only clue regarding which wheels are driven. The Enyaq turns perfectly enough, due to the fact that although it’s heavy, the weight is centred low, however it’s an agreeable rather than interesting buddy.

It flights decently, too; the 60 better than the 80, I believe, with a bit more compliance (although the 80 I attempted used 21in rims to the 60’s 20s, both optional) and definitely better body control. The 60 takes a ‘whump’ to settle after a crest or dip. The 80 wants a whump and a half. The 60’s the more pleasing cars and truck to drive– albeit it won’t go as far.
