PROS It's an Enyaq, so it'll be easy to live with Roomy, inviting interior Long-range from biggest battery pack CONS Likely to cost more than standard Enyaq infotainment less intuitive than rivals Above average road noise Is the Skoda Enyaq Coupe any good? The Coupe version of our current Car of The Year promises more style at a modest price premium over the regular car – but it is aimed squarely at a higher-end audience. Under the skin, the two cars are mechanically identical, which means in the case of Skoda Enyaq iV Coupe, it's off to a very good start. When it goes on sale later in 2022, it will be up against its in-house rival, the Volkswagen ID.5,…
Already the practical and well-respected choice when it comes to members of the Volkswagen Group, the latest-generation Skoda Octavia is now treated to even more tech, engine and chassis components from the VW toybox, including those shared with the Seat Leon and more upmarket relatives like the equally new Volkswagen Golf Mk8 and Audi A3. The four-door Skoda hatchback was always known as the sensible option of these cars over its many generations, so does this new latest version of Octavia carry on that trend after a big injection of 2021 tech? What’s new? The hatch is 19mm longer and 15mm wider than before, and the already cavernous boot has increased in volume by 10 litres to 600 litres for…
We hit the road in a prototype version of the all-electric Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV 80 Verdict Almost as practical and as clever as ever, it appears the Skoda Enyaq Coupe will offer few drawbacks over its conventional counterpart. Skoda has never been one for compromise, and on this evidence, that trend looks set to continue long into the future. Skoda has dabbled with coupes in the past, but most recently it’s come to be known for its humble family hatchbacks, cavernous estate models and spacious SUVs rather than anything you’d conventionally call stylish, or fashionable. But not one to get left behind, the Czech maker is gearing up to launch a coupe version of its pure-electric Enyaq SUV later…
The new Skoda Fabia has all the credentials to challenge the very best in the supermini class Verdict The new Skoda Fabia shows lots of promise on this early drive; it’s comfortable, spacious, neatly finished and packed with lots of clever features and useful technology. Pricing - particularly those crucial monthly finance rates - will determine its overall standing in the class, but on raw merit it feels every bit the serious rival for the Clio, Fiesta and i20. Be careful on engine choice, though, if you’re planning regular travel with the car fully laden. The Skoda Fabia is a huge car for the Czech manufacturer - and never more than with the all-new fourth generation. The popular supermini still…
If you want a well-built small SUV with plenty of space, the Skoda Karoq is well worth a look. Just don’t expect to be wowed by its design or the way it goes around corners. The Skoda Karoq is the Czech brand doing what it does best – providing practical family transport with plenty of equipment and few fripperies. It’s comfortable, too, but you’ll have to look elsewhere if you want style and driving entertainment. In short, it’s the knife and fork of the SUV world, dead simple and wonderfully effective. Having said all that, the Skoda Karoq is an excellent choice if you want a roomy small SUV with a raised driving position and a solid-feeling interior. As an…
