Skoda Enyaq Coupé RS: ‘R’ satisfactory


At some point you can describe a 300 hp car with sports modifications like ‘RS’. Good sports channels low, low weight, destructive and ready. But Skoda has made it much easier with Enyaq Coupé RS.

In fact: Skoda says that along with Enyaq Coupé it goes back to the old sports fans. But the original Czech brand undermines the RS tradition by making this electronic model. Such a tradition existed before, consider the examples of the 180 RS and 200 RS of the 70s and the Skoda 130 RS (‘The Porsche of the East’) In this sporting partnership, Skoda won a two-degree victory in 1977 in Monte. Carlo Rally and Acropolis Rally.

Octavia RS

In 2000, Skoda introduced the Octavia RS, the first production model of the RS series. A family sports car and finally 245 hp. In fact, it was not RS as we know it from Porsche or Audi, but as the father of a soft family you can be seen with it. And maybe that was the reason Skoda put the letter RS ​​on the electronic Enyaq Coupé. After all, it has a power of 300 hp and with its arches of pronounced wheels, lower windows and sports wheels, it looks like a complete athlete.

Unfortunately for Skoda, the competition now features the fastest and most versatile sports models without the use of add-ons like RS. Take the Kia EV6 and Tesla Model 3. Not a natural race, but 100 hp powerful and lean slightly on the bends due to their lower body. And at a top speed of 180 miles per hour, you don’t deserve the letter RS ​​either, because you still stand for humor if you drive 180 with your RS in Germany and at 233 km / h you are overtaken by the Model 3 at all. additional types.

Back to the basic model: Enyaq Coupé is a visual sports version of Enyaq. Unlike the ‘normal’ version is smaller, the only roof layer on Coupé’s back door starts to shrink. The back room does not suffer much, because even at a height of up to 1.90 meters you can sit here without hitting your head. But is it really a coupe? In our opinion, it is a liftback, with its tail opening up. In addition, the official coupe has two doors, but no one else will fall over it.
