With a host of exterior and interior changes compared to the standard version, the Enyaq Sportline iV has been announced in three variants – iV 60, iV 80 and iV 80x, all of which offer different performance levels with different powertrains.
While Skoda has not mentioned a specific launch timescale, Autocar UK reports that the Sportline would be available with the previously announced Enyaq variants this summer.
Skoda Enyaq Sportline iV Exterior
The Skoda Enyaq Sportline iV is marked out by gloss black highlights around the grille and C-shaped trims of air curtains on the front bumper. Even the window frames, rearview mirrors, roof rails, and rear badges are finished in gloss black. The roof spoiler comes finished in a matt black theme, though. Other exterior highlights of the Sportline variant include full-LED Matrix headlamps and choices of 20-inch Vega and 21-inch Betria black alloy wheels with self-healing tires.
The Skoda Enyaq Sportline iV looks different on the inside as well, when compared to other variants of the electric SUV. The cabin comes with an all-black dashboard with stitched black leatherette, sports seats with integrated headrests finished in Suedia microfiber and leather, and floor mats featuring grey nubuck stitching. In addition to these, the cabin also gets black roof lining and pillars, carbon effect trim on dashboard and door panels, heated leather-wrapped steering wheel with Sportline badging and grey stitching, piano black touches in the centre console, and aluminium pedal covers.
In terms of features, the main highlights of the Skoda Enyaq Sportline iV are drive mode selector button in the centre console with five different options – Eco, Comfort, Normal, Sport and Individual, 13-inch free-standing touchscreen infotainment system, 5.3-inch screen for the digital cockpit and optional head-up display with navigation outputs.
The range of the Skoda Enyaq Sportline iV consists of three variants. The entry-level Enyaq Sportline iV 60 has a 132 kW motor, while the mid-spec Enyaq Sportline iV 80 has a motor that makes 150 kW. These come with a rear-wheel drive configuration. The range-topping Enyaq Sportline iV 80x employs two electric motors – one on each axle – thus giving it an all-wheel drive configuration and has a combined power output of 195 kW and 425 Nm.

The Skoda Enyaq Sportline iV retains most of the safety features from the standard version. The list includes up to nine airbags, front assist with pedestrian detection and cyclist protection, side assist with rear traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, adaptive lane assist with roadwork recognition, traffic jam assist and emergency assist with e-Call.
