Skoda is yet to reveal the interior and other finer design details of the production-spec Enyaq. But based on the prototype, the design is more crossover than SUV. We can also make out familiar Skoda design traits such as the butterfly grille, sleek headlamps, and Skoda-esque ‘C’ shaped LED tail lamps. Inside, the Enyaq iV will come with gizmos like a 13-inch central touchscreen with connected car technology and a heads-up display.
