Used test: Kia e-Niro vs Skoda Enyaq verdict

The Kia e-Niro may be an award-winning electric SUV, but is the larger Skoda Enyaq a better used buy? We find out...

Skoda Enyaq iV vs Kia e_niro rears

Our verdict

For practicality and refinement, the Skoda Enyaq has the upper hand. If you require the utmost space and don't need to go very far on a single charge, consider it if you have the extra cash to spend. 

However, we believe most buyers would sacrifice some space for a more affordable buy, not to mention one that can go considerably farther before needing to halt progress and plug in. Four years after its What Car? Car of the Year win, the Kia e-Niro remains a great electric car; we're happy to report its spark hasn't died out.
