Skoda Enyaq: is it better than VW's ID.4?

Autos & Fahrzeuge

Visit YesAuto to find a new car the quick and easy way -
Everybody's talking about the Volkswagen ID.4, the company's second mass-produced EV to launch under its ID banner and its first all-electric SUV. But we actually saw the Tesla Model Y rival earlier in the year, as it launched as the Skoda Enyaq.
That's right, the new Skoda Enyaq is pretty much exactly the same as the ID.4, only with more conventional looks and a slightly smaller batter range. And with prices starting at just over £33,000, it should be cheaper than the ID.4 as well.
With this in mind, we've put together a list of 5 things you need to know about the Enyaq, and why in some areas it's better than the ID.4...

    Compared to ID.4 I love the wide center-armrest and toogling of regeneration right in front of it... Why is VW turning into an un-ergonomic discount brand?

    Why rear wheeled drive on an SUV? 1st sign of slippy conditions and like all BMW's it will have to be parked up until the weather improves. Let me guess an "ex" BMW engineer is somewhere in an important position in the VW group??

    If you have the option to buy a Skoda Enyaq in your country, I can't see how you would ever choose ID.4 over this. ID.4 has plastic shitty interior just like ID.3 and really bad infotainment system! The worst part are the touch buttons on the steering wheel in ID.4/ID.3

    I think you are missing a point. You can't say Enyaq is re-bodied ID4 when all VW electric cars will be based on same MEB chassis. Or otherwise all current and future MEB cars will be re-bodied versions of each other. The driving part is the same for all, most technic is the same VW technic and design is the only difference in all of them. Prices will be with of without "Sovereign" duties, time will tell soon.

    Skoda’s “Game” changed long before this model. They’re sweeping up the reliability and sales charts and will pass out the so called “premium brands” very soon, and that’s goes for brands in their own family also! I’ve driven Audi’s for twenty years or more but wanted something different, an SUV that could be a work horse and a comfy leisure and long distance vehicle. I bought a Skoda Kodiaq Style and wow, it’s a stunning machine, the level of trim, the size, stature etc. It’s a Q5/Q7 sized SUV’s with a price tag of an A4. Then they’re all VAG machines sharing platforms, transmissions etc but for some reason they can do it better and for a lot less. While the Q’s are more refined the price cannot be justified. Skoda was founded in 1859 but most people only know about their recent foray into car manufacture. Yes there was rust, rot, bad electrics, and yes they were hard to start in damp weather, but nearly every British car of the same era rotted In a few years. Early Japanese cars had their wings rot from the inside out in 12m. Fords were ok ish but still suffered from tin worm and poor engine design. The japs did sort the engine department and that went for motorcycles also. Eventually the steel quality, treatment and overall quality control improved and we are where we are now. Skoda was and is a Heavy Engineering Company manufacturing world class workshop machines, lathes, steam turbines, buses, trains, yes modern high speed new in 2021 trains, light rail and intercity. Their factories were taken over by the Germans in WW2 and they make weapons, tanks, the lot because they could. The company is between 50 and 70 years older than Ford, GM, all the Japanese manufacturers, about 50 to 60 older than all the German premium brands.

    Well, I have bad news for you... I absolutely love the design of the Skoda's, was considering trading my Citroen C4 for a Octavia Break but got into a Über and it happened what happens every time I get into a Skoda: I hated the interior. Lots of space, practical car, well built but horrible interior in the back seats or all around in the Fábia. And no, it is not because "it is a low cost alternative" because o really like my friends Dacias Sandero whiche are much more cheaper than the Octavia and not built as well but somehow I like it more in one (notice that they aren't even In the same class of cars, with the Sandero being more of a competitor to the Fábia but I like the back seats more than In the Octavia...) Same thing with the Fiat Tipo and other low cost cars, I find it better appointed in the back seats than the Skoda's and sometimes even at the front. It is a shame, I really liked the Octavia, the ride is good and the front seats and dashboard are nice but at the, definitely NO! Oh, let me edit to add this: about 3 years ago I needed a second car, something cheap and spacious, I came across an old Skoda Felicia station wagon which I didn't bought because it was petrol, not diesel, it had lots of km on it and was dirty cheap but inside it felt nice. I actually liked it better than the Octavia

    Some interesting information, but you fail to point out the huge cost of "extras" to bring the spec up to the level of most other electric cars and add to this the pathetic warranty period. Do Skoda have so little confidence in the build quality of their vehicles. Perhaps you would have noticed these "features" if you paid more attention to information and less to adding silly, unnecessary noise to the report.

    My worry with Skoda: if VW has so many bugs with ID.3, how will this car be... Also, VW currently offers free service assistance for first movers - curious how a "badge" la Skoda will handle customer issues with the car. The "badge" is not really only the "badge", there is different kind of testing of these cars and different kind of service when issues pop up.
