What alternatives should I consider to a used Skoda Yeti estate?

If you’re looking for a compact SUV that’s good to drive and has a comfortable ride, then take a look at the Suzuki Vitara. All its engines offer excellent fuel economy, too, thanks in part to the car’s low weight compared with rivals. Its interior is a noticeable step down in plushness compared to the Skoda Yeti, though – the Vitara is full of hard plastic surfaces.

The Nissan Qashqai has a well-made interior that feels quite classy – especially the facelifted version – and offers SUV-fanciers the raised ride height they desire. It doesn’t offer much more interior space than a traditional family hatchback, however, and you pay for its raised suspension and comfortable ride with a fair bit of roll through the corners.

The Volkswagen Tiguan is a little bigger than the Yeti and its low-speed ride is equally stiff, but its interior is finished with nicer materials. You do have to pay extra for the privilege of ownership, though.

The Yeti is Skoda’s answer to the small SUV craze and it’s a stylish and practical alternative to a hatchback, even if its ride and refinement are poor

  • Fun to drive for an SUV
  • Spacious cabin
  • Some efficient versions
  • Too much wind and road noise
  • Ride is jittery on poor surfaces
  • Removable rear seats are fiddly
