Skoda has kept in line with making cars which look classy from the outside with the Enyaq iV. A super-imposing grille with the company logo and extra-large wheels make for a dominating on-road presence. Elegant lines run all the way from the rear to the LED matrix headlights and extra length and width makes the car adequately spacious with a 585-litre boot.

Customers will also have the choice of three wheel sizes, 19 inch, 20 inch or 21 inch alloy wheels.

The materials used to build the interior have been derived from recycled plastic and customers get five options for interior design. These are Loft, Lodge, Lounge, Suite and ecoSuite. Loft offers an elegant black and grey color palette. Lounge gives a modern taste to the interior, featuring seats made of grey leather with mustard stitching, and Suite is the most high-end interior option the company offers, built with the highest quality materials, offering seats of black leather and piano black decor panels.
