I was originally looking to replace the Audi A6 with a new Fabia, after seeing the TV advert, I a Yeti!

I have owned car for 16 months, and it has been a joy. Its looks set it apart from mainstream cars. I have to it is a Marmite car; some the looks, some hate it.

For me, I like the Tonka Toy look and the bug in the front!


I came an Audi A6 Estate, and that was the cargo space in the Yeti is smaller, but aided with clever sliding seats and the seats, it is as practical as the Audi. The load area also it is deceptively large (I don#039;t a spare wheel). The front space is again very although the elbow room is than the A6, it is perfectly adequate.

The rear passenger room is large, it has more leg room the Audi, and the rear seats be adjusted for angle, perfect for journey naps. However, the rear seat is quite I am one of the lucky individuals that do not the rear air vents, which some rear leg room.

The front seats are very I could drive 250 miles stopping. They are a bit on the hard but I doubt soft seats provide as much support. My car is with 4 electric windows, should really be standard in car nowadays, however, it also has air conditioning.

When I first it last summer, it was abysmal, since the system is now fully (run it?), it provided a comfortable summer this (I actually had to turn the temperature up as it was too

Coming from an automatic, I am that the 1.2 engine was flexible and not need to change gear to increase progress; the low gearing allow an unstressed motorway However, whilst wind and noise are low (similar to my A6), roar is an issue on mine on the roads. After researching on it seems the Michellin tires have been superseded by other tires which the noise level.

I would changing to another brand of when it#039;s time to as currently it is really quiet on paved road, but on corroded it is really protruding.


both power and economy, engine really impresses me. My 2.6 sounded brilliant, and had power you wanted it, especially in the lower However this 1.2 turbo injection engine really me.

I was expecting poor acceleration and a of response, however it exceeded all of my As a person who has regular access to from 1960#039;s Triumph to BMW X5 3.0 to BMW 323ia Convertible to a diesel up, I am not going to lie and say it goes like a or accelerates as fast as a Skyline. The from this little is simply unbelievable though.

Average town driving, up and down hills are more adequate, I rarely push than 1/4 of the gas pedal to get some

In gear acceleration was also with the aid of the turbo charger. I go in 3rd gear from 20 mph to 70 mph without loss in progress. 5th gear is also very impressive, you can from 30 mph to well above the speed limit.

However, in 6th gear from 50 mph to 70 mph is a little bit The best I could describe is it is like driving my brother#039;s 1.8 which has a lower kerb

In terms of economy, I currently around 37 – 38 mpg in town which includes going up and hills regularly and 2-3 mile On the motorway at a steady 70 mph, the works out I could average 48 – 55 mpg. In the real a 250 miles motorway journey 10 miles of London city at an average speed of 51 mph averaged to be 51 mpg (manually worked out at the pump).

So it does better than the mpg figures on motorway, whilst less economical in town the official figure suggest.

Possibly my favourite part of the I have driven many in the past; X5, Range Rover, I have to say the Yeti does not like those at all.

The 1.2 engine and FWD set up makes it very the front turns very in corners, it actually felt I am driving a much smaller and car. The hard suspension is not cup of tea, but on British B roads, it is a It also provided great and controllability on the motorway.

I test drove the 170 TDI prior to my car, and I would say although the 170 TDI is more planted in the corner it is less nimble and it feels driving a much bigger

Through servicing and warranty, I also driven a fair few on the Fabia; for some reason the felt more lively in the that the Fabia, and the Yeti provided excellent feedback to the The only minus point for the suspension is in town where roads are potholed, and the car sometimes around if not driven carefully.

The standard Swing radio is however since the price of radio is now lower (RCD I decided to swap for it and it has 6 CD Changer, Radio Station that update (useful when cross country) and SD card. The speakers are good, but I can#039;t why Skoda decided not to provide speakers as standard when it peanuts to do!!


Overall, I have to say I am impressed. For the price I paid, I have a VW Golf, Ford Nissan Qashqai etc. the Yeti#039;s unique styling and outside the box design really me, coupled with excellent all ability of a van, SUV and hatchback, it is a good package.

In fact the regret I had is not ordering the panoramic but this would mean up a model and spending another

Would you buy another car from manufacturer? Yes
