25 April 2023 – Heads up

Although my Skoda Enyaq Coupé is lofty and far from impractical, the steep slope of the roofline towards the rear of the car can make access to the back seats awkward if you’re north of six feet tall.

It’s rather a moot point for me, because I’m always in the driver’s seat, but lanky passengers run the risk of cracking their head on the top of the aperture on the way in if they’re not careful.

Once they’re aboard, though, the rear seats are airy and generally very comfortable. There’s loads of leg and foot room, even sitting behind a tall front seat occupant, and despite the unavoidable presence of a full-length panoramic glass roof on my vRS model, head room is surprisingly good too.

The rooflining is sculpted to make room for the heads of two outer passengers sitting up straight, although their hair might brush the ceiling if they lean right back against the head restraint. A middle rear passenger is less well served in this regard, but they’re unlikely to feel cramped.
