Skoda Yeti (2009-13)

Overall Rating

3 stars

The Yeti is Skoda's crossover, a cross between a hatchback and a 4x4. Plenty of flexible space and decent styling.

  • Decent styling
  • Plenty of space
  • Fuel efficient engines
  • DSG lacks sharpness
  • Seats are fiddly to fold especially middle row
  • Mis-match styling is personal taste
Road Test

The Yeti is very well equipped for load lugging, the luggage compartment volume is highly flexible; up to 1,760 litres is available by removing the rear seats. A luggage cover and net as well as lashing rings are available to secure any load. Excellent handling characteristics and high agility are features of all trims. The 4x4 variants are characterised by outstanding off-road ability and excellent traction, coupled with low emission values and fuel consumption. The 4.2 metre long, five-door vehicle bears the well-known and distinctive features of the brand. It has a robust and solid look on 17-inch wheels, whilst its fresh styling and high seating position enable the Yeti to exude lightness rather than looking bulky. The carefully balanced running gear and agile handling, combined with turbocharged and frugal engines, makes the Yeti fun and dynamic to drive. Two petrol and three diesel engines are on offer. The entry engine is a front-wheel drive, petrol engine with four cylinders and 1.2 litre capacity, which delivers impressive 105bhp. Decent styling, strong and solid with choice of 2WD or 4WD.
