Brand new Skoda Enyaq iV vRS offers sporty practicality

General Guides  New Launches 

If you've ever driven an electric car you'll know that they lend themselves to some seriously quick acceleration. Even the most mundane car can be given an air of sportiness with the addition of an electric motor. Which means, when a manufacturer actually intends to build a sporty car half the work is done. Take the fantastic new Skoda Enyaq iV vRS, for example.

This is actually the second time Skoda has combined electricity with the vRS badge. The coupe version of the Enyaq vRS launched last year offered the performance, and now the SUV version adds a big chunk of practicality too.

The 585-litre boot is already 15 litres larger than that of the coupe and can be extended to 1,710 litres by folding the rear seats down. To ensure easy access to the load area, the vRS is also fitted with the automatic opening virtual pedal as standard. If you're looking to lease a practical family car that also offers great performance the Skoda Enyaq iV vRS could be the ideal option.

Like the coupe version, the SUV variant has a power output of around 300bhp and is equipped with twin motors – one on each axle. Combined, the motors deliver 460Nm of torque to give instant acceleration.

In terms of performance, the 82kWh battery pack gives the Enyaq iV vRS a top speed of 111mph and a 0-62mph time of just 6.5 seconds. It's also compatible with rapid DC charging at speeds of up to 135kW and can achieve an 80% charge in as little as 36 minutes when connected to a 150kW charger or faster. On a standard 7.2kW home wall box, a charge from empty to full will take around 13 hours so it will always be ready to go in the morning. Total range on a full charge is a very healthy 321 miles.

For a flagship SUV you'd expect a few little extras and the Enyaq vRS doesn't disappoint.

It features a bespoke chassis set up designed to deliver an even more responsive driving experience. The standard sports suspension lowers the body by 15 millimetres at the front and 10 millimetres at the rear. Combined with progressive steering as standard this gives the kind of dynamic handling that vRS drivers have come to expect. All-wheel drive, a customisable drive mode, and a Traction mode for slippery surfaces, make the Enyaq comfortable, refined, and easily controlled. Optional Dynamic Chassis Control can also constantly monitor the situation on the road and automatically adjust the damping.

The looks don't disappoint either.

Unique vRS bumpers front and rear give the car a more muscular appearance and work well with Skoda's illuminated Crystal Face grille with gloss black surround. Window trims and tailgate lettering are also finished in gloss black to further enhance the sporty feel. Side skirts are finished in body colour and the whole lot sits on either the standard 20-inch alloy wheels or the optional 21-inch Vision wheels with an anthracite finish.

Inside the Enyaq iV vRS you'll find a special vRS Design Selection that features sports seats in black perforated leather seat upholstery with contrast stitching. The multifunction sports leather steering wheel also features contrast stitching while the dashboard is coated with a leather-look finish. You'll also get a three-zone climate control system, LED ambient lighting, as well as wireless smartphone charging.

Skoda is introducing an even clearer range structure to personalise your new vRS. Two new option packages, Advanced and Maxx, complement each other with various comfort and technology options.

Advanced and Maxx packages

Advanced includes Travel Assist, Head-up Display with Augmented Reality, heated front and rear seats and a heated windscreen, upgraded sound system and provision for a trailer hitch.

On top of these options, the Maxx package offers electrically adjustable front seats including memory function, a massage function for the driver's seat, side airbags in the rear, the Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) as well as Parking Assist including Trained Parking function and Area View with 360-degree cameras.

First UK deliveries of the new Skoda Enyaq iV vRS are expected from June 2023 so if you do fancy leasing something a little bit different now is probably the time to act. Get in touch and we'll make sure your name is at the top of the Skoda Enyaq iV vRS leasing list come the summer.
