The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV has been named Best Family Car in the annual Autocar Awards. The in-demand all-electric SUV saw off stiff competition from both electric and combustion engined models to take the top spot. In winning the award, the ENYAQ iV has added to its impressive list of industry accolades.
The Autocar judging panel praised the ENYAQ iV for its all-round ability and numerous family-friendly features, along with its smooth driving experience and practical range of up to 329 miles on the WLTP cycle.
Commenting on the award, Mark Tisshaw, Autocar editor said: “The ENYAQ iV has been designed by people who understand the way the world works. Its interior is a match for anything at the same level, and it’s roomy, cleverly thought-out and ergonomically sensible. It is, we concluded when we put it through the Autocar road-test mill last summer, a sweet spot in the family EV market.”
The latest Autocar award joins a host of other industry titles already held by the ENYAQ iV. Despite being on sale for less than a year, the brand’s first purpose-built SUV has been named Top Gear Best Value Electric Car, Scottish Car of the Year, What Car? Best Electric Large SUV, Parkers Car of the Year, and Electrifying.com Family Car of the Year.
Launched in June 2021, the ENYAQ iV leads the brand’s ambitious electrification strategy. The SUV version will soon be joined by a new Coupé variant which will be available in vRS form for the first time.
