The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

If you’re choosing an SUV because you want to sit high up, you’ll love the Enyaq’s driving position. Granted, you’ll still be looking up at Range Rover drivers in traffic jams, but you’re placed much higher up from the road than in the Polestar 2 and Tesla Model 3.

The standard seats are mostly comfortable on long journeys – you get adjustable lumbar support as standard but some of our testers still found the lower back support slightly lacking – and the wraparound shoulder supports keeps you in place when cornering hard. The optional Comfort Seat Package Basic adds an electric driver's seat. If you spend more on the Comfort Seat Package Plus, you get a massaging seat with two-position memory.

Visibility, parking sensors and cameras

The Enyaq’s long and shallow-angled front pillars are a minor nuisance, obscuring some of your diagonal view and hiding the kerb area around the car (the ID.4 has the same problem).

The rear pillars are fairly substantial too, although you can still see a reasonable amount compared with in the Ford Mustang Mach-E, which has even thicker pillars at the back. Rear parking sensors come as standard on the 60 model, but you’ll need to stump up for the Parking Package Basic to get front sensors and a reversing camera. Those are standard on the 80, with a 360-degree bird’s eye view camera offered as an option.

LED headlights are fitted as standard and adaptive matrix LED headlights are optional. You can spec your Enyaq with a ‘Crystal Face’ that covers the grille with 170 LEDs to make the car look as though it’s baring its teeth.

In short, it feels pretty well screwed together and there's plenty of squidgy plastic on the dashboard and the insides of the doors, plus piano black and metal highlights to jazz things up. If you go for Loft trim, large parts of the dashboard are trimmed in fabric, which is swapped for artificial leather in the Suite and Ecosuite.

The seats in both those versions and the Sportline trim are covered in genuine leather while the leather in the Ecosuite is sustainably sourced and treated with olive leaf extract rather than chemicals. If you go for Lodge trim, the seat covers are made of 40% new wool, which qualifies them for Woolmark approval.
