If interest wasn't already high enough in the forthcoming Skoda Enyaq iV, the Czech brand has revealed its Sportline version, featuring a more dynamic look that's sure to turn heads. The specification grade mimics what has already been applied to other models like the Superb and Kodiaq.
The front of the Skoda Enyaq Sportline iV appears even more angular thanks to its bespoke lower bumper design. Skoda has enhanced the 'visual width' of the car by detailing more gloss black elements and fitting a different design of mesh to the lower grille section. The illuminated 'grille' - a feature of the Enyaq with the largest battery - is also surrounded in the gloss black material.
The Enyaq Sportline iV specification will include Skoda's LED Matrix headlights. These feature high beam modules of 24 LEDs that are controlled individually, enabling high beam use without dazzling other road users.
Skoda also adds a contrasting gloss black finish to the door mirrors, window surrounds and B-pillars, roof rails and along an insert within the side sills. This lower panel of the Enyaq's side is also painted with more of the body colour to emphasise its closeness to the ground. The Sportline badge also appears on the front wing panel.
Filling the wheel arches are burnished 20-inch Vega alloy wheels, with the option of 21-inch Betria rims. Both of these designs are exclusive to the Sportline specification. At the rear of the car the bumper's lower section is black, again to give it a sporty appearance.
Meanwhile, the rear window surround and part of the rear spoiler is black, as is the Skoda lettering and other badges on the tailgate. Further enhancing the sporty exterior look, the Enyaq Sportline iV gets its front suspension lowered by 15mm and rear suspension lowered by 10mm.
Bespoke interior for Enyaq Sportline iV
To tie in with the sportier exterior, the cabin of the Skoda Enyaq Sportline iV gets carbon fibre effect finishes for the dashboard facia, in addition to red ambient lighting. A leather three-spoke steering wheel is similar to the one used on the Octavia RS and includes knurled rotary controllers. Skoda fits pedal covers to the Enyaq to give an aluminium look, too.
The sports seats come with an integrated headrest design and are clad with Suedia microfibre with contrasting grey piping. That same upholstery is also applied to the rear seats.
Skoda will offer the Enyaq Sportline iV specification with the 60, 80 and 80x powertrains. The Enyaq Sportline iV 60 drives the rear wheels and has outputs of 180hp and 310Nm thanks to its 62kWh (58kWh net) battery, along with a driving range of more than 400 kilometres. The Enyaq Sportline iV 80 is fitted with an 82kWh (77kWh net) battery and has an official range of more than 520 kilometres. Topping the line-up is the Skoda Enyaq Sportline iV 80x, with a dual-motor setup for maximum outputs of 265hp and 425Nm, and a 500-kilometre range.
Irish pricing for the Skoda Enyaq Sportline iV will be announced shortly.
