Skoda Yeti SE 2.0 TDI CR 140 4×4

What is it?

SKODA’s first-ever proper off-roader – although the Czech car maker would prefer it if you called it a ‘cross-over’. Whatever, the Yeti is a genuinely different family car that mixes the flexibility of a Roomster with a 4×4 system that offers real go-anywhere ability. Engines include VW-sourced TSI turbo petrol and 2.0-litre common-rail diesels.

What’s hot?

  • Amazing breadth of ability. Land Rover-like off-road…
  • …thanks to clever hill descent control and variable 4×4
  • Precise and comfortable to drive on road too
  • Super smooth 2.0-litre diesel is punchy and economical
  • Rear seats slide back and forth or can be removed
  • Big boot, loads of passenger space
  • Classy, high quality cabin derived from Superb
  • Likely to have strong residuals
  • Most models get climate control as standard
  • Available in low-emission front-drive only form too

What’s not?

  • Beefed-up Roomster looks might not appeal appeal to everyone
  • Good to drive but no Ford Kuga in the corners
  • Er…that’s about it

Business Car Manager Road Test Rating

Skoda could strike gold with the Yeti. It’s almost as capable as a Land Rover Freelander off-road and drives like a slightly taller estate car on it. Practicality is incredible, build quality brilliant and with a wide range of fuel-efficient engines, the Yeti shouldn’t cost much to run too. Brilliant.
