Disadvantages: Standard models are not very good for the environment. Also, probably a bit too functional for some buyers who have plenty to choose from in this range.
Summary: The Skoda Yeti is functional, with an interior cabin space that would withstand years and years of family use. This impressive SUV is also rugged off-road, with extra protection afforded underneath the vehicle and around its wheel archers. As you would expect from an Skoda, the Yeti is also super affordable with prices ranging from £17,000. That said, it is a bit square (figuratively and aesthetically), and might not appeal to all.

New SKODA YETI Review:
First launched in 2009, the Skoda Yeti has been part of the crossover family since they were first conceived. The Yeti has, however, fallen slightly behind its rivals in terms of innovation and ideas, but it’s still practical, reliable and likeable as ever.
There’s a range of two wheel and four wheel drive models on offer, and all Yeti models are a decent drive. The underbody protection and extra protection provided on the wheel archers also means that the Yeti is deserving of its SUV (sport-utility vehicle) status. Unlike most rivals, you can confidently put the Yeti through its paces on a number of different terrains. The four-wheel drive model gives excellent traction at all times and won’t leave you stranded in a wet patch of turf, or as your ascending a difficult surface.
The interior remains basic, there is something adorable about it. It is rugged and can put up with pretty much anything a family can throw at it. The Yeti is also very intuitive to drive, from the dials to the location of control panel buttons. The massive amount of cabin space means that long journeys are a joy. The boot is also around 416-litres, extending to a huge 1580 capacity once the rear seats are folded down.
Look wise, the Yeti remains as square and earnest as usual, especially if you punt for the entry-level version of the vehicle. New car deals start around £17,000 for this range. The new Yeti Black edition is a little bit snazzier (just about), and the interior comes with some nice leather trimmings and intricate touches.
Engines range from those which give out 109bhp to 168bhp. As with most Skoda cars, the latter, bigger, 2.0 litre engine gives you more than you would expect, and is comparable to cars of higher price. The bestselling Yeti is the middle-of-the-range 2.0 litre diesel, which gives a 138bhp output and 0-62mph in 9.9 seconds. The DSG gearbox means that the ride is smooth and consistent. Considering the size of the Yeti, this model is relatively efficient, and runs at an average of 48mpg.
The more environmentally conscious buyers might opt for one of GreenLine model, which runs at 61mph. Although not all models of the Yeti are particularly good for the environment, the Roomster GreenLineo gives out an impressive 109 gkm CO2 and a potential bootspace of 1810 litres. Road tax starts is £30 a year and there are a number of other savings to be made from the stop-start system and technology which means that the tyres have lower rolling resistance.
