THE Skoda EnyaqCoupe offers all the qualities of the regular award-winning all-electric SUV model in a more visually exciting package.

It still has all the qualities of its sibling - space, comfort, good range and practicality - but it also has real style.

Up to the door-pillar the cars are the same but then the Coupe's roof slants more down to the tailgate giving it a sportier profile and at the same time making it even more aerodynamically efficient than the regular model.

The Coupe comes with just two power choices, starting with the iV 80 I have been driving which has the same 204ps rear-mounted motor and an 82kWh battery as the regular Enyaq.

It offers a range of up to 337 miles but as usual you won't get near that in colder weather or if you are using a lot of power for other functions.Top speed is 99mph and it is capable of reaching 62mph in 8.5 seconds.

If you want more power and fun you can opt for the sportier iV vRS model which has a more potentpowertrain with two electric motors giving a combined output of 295bhp and a 0-62mph time of just 6.5 seconds. It is more expensive and as you would expect the range drops to 309 miles

The Coupe is priced above the regular Enyaq SUV but standard kit on the Coupes includes body-coloured side skirts, 19-inch alloy wheels, a huge panoramic tinted-glass roof, Skoda's 13-inch infotainment system, full LED headlights and a 5.3-inch digital instrument panel.

There is a choice of five interior trims - Loft, Lodge, Lounge, Suite and EcoSuite. You can add options like larger wheels and Skoda's adaptive dampers if you wish.

If you want yourEnyaq Coupé to look even more special but don't want the extra cost of the vRS, you canorder the SportLine trim model I sampIed. It has larger 20-inch wheels and a lower ride height as well as acoustic glass and a Crystal Face illuminated grille which has 131 LEDs.

The Coupe feels pretty much the same as its SUV stablemate on the road. The slightly lower centre of gravity does not have much impact on the dynamics and although the power output is modest, there is enough grunt to make the Coupe feel reasonably quick.

It is at its best when cruising and the steering is accurate and light. When you lift off the throttle around town the regeneration means that you will hardly ever need to push the brake pedal hard.

The cabin is excellent with good quality materials and lots of room for four adults to travel in real comfort even with the sloping roof. The large screen makes it easy to use most of the infotainment features but it can still feel a bit fiddly at times when you want to adjust the cabin climate.
