2017 Skoda Yeti Review

Introduction

The Yeti is Skoda’s small SUV. It’s designed to fall somewhere between more traditional off-road styling and the high-riding hatchback-like crossovers that inhabit the same space in the market. The Yeti is hugely popular, not just for the way it looks and how easy it is to engage with, but also the way it drives, being among the most fun of any car of its type. Four-wheel drive is available only with the most powerful diesel engine option.

Did you know? The 2005 Yeti concept hid its rear door handles vertically within the door frame to try to ape the old-school three-door off-roader look

Verdict: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7.4/10)

There are two distinct points in the Skoda Yeti’s favour. The first is the simplicity and familiarity of its controls. It’s so quick and easy to get in, get comfortable and get acquainted with the layout, especially for people who have already owned a Volkswagen Group car. The second point is that the Yeti really does offer more fun than most other small SUVs. It’s better through corners, feels nimbler and has a hint of youth about it. It might lack the extreme styling flourishes of some newer designs, but its straight-lined, uncomplicated design still looks neat.
