The Skoda Yeti is a compact crossover that offers practicality as well as being great to drive and having low running costs. This is an award winning car for many reasons.
There are a range of engines for the Skoda Yeti though most drivers will find the 2.0litre TDI unit a good choice with the two-wheel drive model returning 63mpg. The 1.6 litre GreenLine diesel unit is efficient with economy of 60mpg. Of the petrol engines, there's an efficient 1.2litre TSI unit which should return 45 mpg and there's a 107 bhp unit which has decent acceleration and should return 51 mpg; it's also one of the most popular choices for drivers. A 1.4litre petrol will return 45mpg.
All of the engines offer good performance over a variety of terrains and at speed on motorways they are efficient and capable and the ride is supple and comfortable. Opt for the four-wheel-drive version, and the Yeti will impress with its off-road in capabilities - it easily a match to some better-known rivals.
With the rocketing size of the compact crossover sector, the Yeti is an unusual choice for many. It has a high riding height which offers the driver a good view of the road ahead, there's lots of space on board and it is designed to be enjoyed. However, it does not have the chunky style of its rivals.
The Skoda Yeti comes in two versions; there's a standard model which is essentially the one to drive around town but still offers good performance in the countryside and the Outdoor version which is a tough off-roader. Both offer car-like handling abilities and both models come with two or four-wheel-drive which will deliver what drivers are expecting. In addition, Skoda have won a well-deserved reputation for building solid cars and the reliability of the Yeti makes it a hard to beat choice.
While the Yeti is a tough car, it is also enjoyable to drive with direct and responsive steering and a smooth gearbox. With the box like shape, there's lots of space for passengers aboard and there's a large boot too. Standard equipment includes air con, alloy wheels and a 5-inch touchscreen while other models come with cruise control, dual zone air con and rear parking sensors.
Essentially, drivers will find that the Skoda Yeti is not just an economic and practical car to run but it's also a dependable crossover that is built for punishment and a great choice for families.
