The interior layout, fit and finish
If you like an elevated driving position, you’ll love the Skoda Enyaq vRS, because its front seats are perched high up. Okay, they're not Range Rover lofty, but you'll look down on anyone in a Kia EV6 or Tesla Model Y.
To help you get comfortable, the seats feature electric adjustment, including for lumbar support, and allow you to save your preferred settings so you can quickly restore them after someone else has driven the car. The headrests on the front sports seats are fixed but worked fine for all our testers, and the seats offer plenty of side support.
The in-car functions are mostly controlled through a 13in touchscreen in the middle of the dashboard. It's packed with features, including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring (which are not available in Teslas), and most icons are big and easy to hit. The software could be more responsive, though.
Overall – as with the regular Skoda Enyaq – the interior is a pleasant place to spend time. It feels well screwed together and the vRS makeover includes lots of suede trim. You can have suede-like upholstery with contrasting stitching on the dashboard and seats for no extra charge. The C40 comes with more robust switchgear and classier plastics on the doors and lower dash.
