Boasting kit like collision-avoidance assistance, turn assistance and adaptive cruise control, as well as lane-keeping assistance and automatic emergency braking, the Enyaq iV is loaded to the roof with technology designed to keep you and your family safe.

Plus, given the relative simplicity of the electric powertrain and the fact that so many of the parts are used elsewhere in the VW Group, we can assume reliability should be an Enyaq iV strong suit.

Skoda Enyaq iV reliability & problems

The Enyaq iV is still too new to have featured in any of the mainstream reliability or owner satisfaction surveys. However, the Skoda brand has a very solid reputation for reliability, and came 12th overall in the 2021 Driver Power survey ahead of more prestigious names like Volkswagen, Mercedes and BMW. It dropped to 20th place out of 29 brands in 2022, though, which seems strange seeing as Skoda was one of the best-rated brands a couple of years back.


The Enyaq iV was awarded the maximum five-star rating by independent crash-test body Euro NCAP in 2021. It scored an impressive 94% and 89% for adult and child occupant protection respectively. As hinted at above, thanks to the car's long list of safety kit, the Enyaq iV did well in the Safety Assist category, too, scoring 82%. Those numbers near enough match its Volkswagen ID.4 sister car's efforts.
