While official data is thin on the ground, we can expect the Enyaq iV to be among the safest and most reliable new cars currently on sale. 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. 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

Clearly, the Enyaq iV is too new to feature in any of the mainstream reliability or owner satisfaction surveys. However, the brand has a very solid reputation for reliability, and came 12th overall in the 2021 Driver Power Survey ahead of brands like Volkswagen, Mercedes and BMW. 

In previous year's results, owners have spoken about how practical their Skodas are – a trait likely to become synonymous with the Enyaq iV before too long – as well as how well built their cabins feel.

Safety

The Enyaq iV was awarded the maximum five-star rating by independent crash-test body Euro NCAP. 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, scoring 82%. Those numbers near enough match the Volkswagen ID.4's scores.
