What used Skoda Yeti estate will I get for my budget?
Early Yeti models with relatively high mileage can be found for £4000 or less, but if you want to limit the mileage to below 60,000, be prepared to spend between £5500 - £6000 to find a good example. If you want a facelifted Yeti, examples from 2014 with average mileage start from £8000.
Towards the end of its life, the Yeti was only available in Outdoor form. A 2017 example with average mileage starts from £13,500.

How much does it cost to run a Skoda Yeti estate?
Certain petrol-powered Yetis are not quite as economical as you might like, with the 1.8 TSI performing the worst at 35.3mpg and costing £290 per year in road tax. The most frugal is the front-wheel drive 1.2 TSI: early 103bhp examples consume fuel at a rate of 44.1mpg and cost £155 per year to tax, while later 109bhp versions are a little more cost-efficient at 51.4mpg and £120 per year in tax.
Diesel Yetis are generally much more economical, although the worst performing version is the four-wheel-drive DSG 2.0 TDI 138bhp model (43.4mpg and £230 road tax). The more popular two-wheel drive 2.0 TDI 109bhp manages 52.3mpg and £140 a year road tax, but the economy champion is the 1.6-litre Greenline model. It sips fuel at a rate of 61.4mpg and only cost £30 per year in tax.
It’s worth noting that any car registered after 1 April 2017 will cost £140 per year to tax due to updated regulations that applied after that date.
Helpfully, Skoda offers fixed price servicing: a simple oil and filter change costs £99, a more in depth interim service every 12 months or 10,000 miles costs £169, while the full 24 month or 20,000 mile major service is £279.
The Yeti also offers lower insurance groupings than rivals, which should mean that it costs less to insure.
