Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV vRS (2022) review Car News

That’s not helped by road depressions that mess the car up and the steering doesn’t give much feedback, so you’re never quite sure what the front wheels are doing.

The vRS disappoints a bit in this regard, as although it has decent handling, it feels more like a normal top model than a sporty variant.

It’s not all bad news, though, as it’s comfortable when you’re not walking around. The ride is firmer, even in Comfort mode, but it soaks up imperfections and small potholes with ease, never squashing them like, say, the Renault Arkana does.

As you’d expect, the smaller wheel choices are the most comfortable.

Speaking of comfort, it’s a pleasure to sit inside and take a long drive. Space is a strong point, with that sloping roofline having little effect on the amount of headroom available (perhaps not helped by the standard panoramic roof), and overall material quality is very high. The vRS is all suede, which is nice.

Front and center is a massive 13-inch touchscreen running the latest version of Skoda’s infotainment software, including satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a DAB radio and Bluetooth. It’s certainly better than the old system, reacting quicker to your prods, but it’s still a bit of a maze, requiring you to flick through menu after menu to do simple things like turn off lane-keeping assist.

The vRS will set you back £51,885, which is a fair chunk even compared to the regular Enyaq 80x (meaning 4WD) in Sportline trim. It’s a brilliant car on its own, so the question is: how important is that extra style to you?
