For The sharp steering and fine body control make the Skoda Yeti fun to drive, and it’s great for families thanks to a massive cabin with versatile seating. The 4x4 models are surprisingly capable off-road, too.

Against There’s a lot of wind and road noise and the ride is jittery. The removable rear seats are heavy to lift out and awkward to replace.

Skoda Yeti 4x4
44 5stars

The Skoda Yeti is a stylish and practical alternative to traditional family hatchbacks. It handles brilliantly, too, but the ride and refinement disappoint.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The 1.2-litre turbo petrol model is the pick of the range because it’s a lively performer, attractively priced and cheap to run. However, it can’t be combined with four-wheel drive – you’ll need a 1.8-litre turbo petrol or 2.0-litre diesel if you plan to head off-road. Of these, the basic 2.0 TDI is our pick, because it’s reasonably gutsy and the only one that’s available with cheaper trims.

Company car drivers will be best off choosing the 1.6 TDI Greenline II, because its low CO2 emissions help keep company car tax bills down.

Entry-level S models have most of what you want, including air-con, alloy wheels, electric front and rear windows and Bluetooth. We'd upgrade to SE trim, though – you get dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors and cruise control.
