Skoda Yeti 2.0 TDI 4×4: Case of the cases

  • Site editor Sebastian Viehmann

The Skoda Yeti sets an angular counterpoint to the completely sucked SUV inheritance, even if its optics were smoothed after the latest lifting. But in some respects the SUV now looks a bit old.

You should recognize him by the goblet lights! The headlight combination of round and angular made the front of the Skoda Yeti once unmistakable. After the facelift, that’s over now. The Yeti resembles the strict Skoda face of Octavia and Co. at. After all: He keeps his angular body shape, pleasingly clear when maneuvering.With the color of the roof of the 4.2 meter long Czechs, the optics of the 4.2 meter long Czechs are somewhat more individual. If you want to do without the "outdoor" look and save 200 euros, you have also received the Yeti since the facelift in an urban version without protective strips.

Inside the Skoda Yeti is not the biggest

Unfortunately, hardly anything has changed in the facelift in the interior. So there are not many and above all pretty small shelves. The Skoda still has movable rear seats and a very good space for all passengers. But the luggage compartment remains under the class average with 405 to a maximum of 1580 liters. For comparison: the Nissan Qashqai swallows 430 to 1585 liters, the Toyota RAV 4 547 to 1746 liters, the Ford Kuga 456 to 1653 liters, the Mazda CX-5 503 to 1620 liters, the Honda CR-V 589 to 1669 liters and the Hyundai IX35 465 to 1436 liters.To make matters worse, the relatively high loading edge and the highly swinging, unwieldy tailgate are added to the Skoda. An electric tailgate would be a nice extra, but it does not exist. Otherwise, many assistance system from the Volkswagen Group cannot be obtained for the Czech SUV-the lifted Yeti is already five years old in its basic construction.

The all -wheel drive can do something

For 240 euros extra – quite steep – there is a reversing camera. However, the angular Yeti with its vertically towering, less supplied rear is one of the few SUVs that you have well under control even without this maneuver aid.

Also under control you have the Yeti on bad streets. Especially when you (like 40 percent of all buyers) order the car with all -wheel drive. Whether in ice and snow or on muddy forest paths: On wet or loose surface, the Haldex coupling of the Skoda Yeti ensures that the engine power is also led to the rear axle in a fertilization.

Rustic for the city

This allows excursions to the light terrain together with the increased ground clearance and the standard all -wheel drive program of the variant Yeti Outdoor. However, the color protection of the outdoor model, which is offset in color, is primarily intended for a rustic appearance in the city center.

The Yeti engines from 105 to 170 hp. Our test car was equipped with the 81 kW / 110 hp diesel engine. This is also the smallest diesel engine that is available in connection with all-wheel drive. The driving performance (0-100 km/h in 12.2 seconds, top speed 174 km/h) remain significantly behind the models with 140 or 170 hp. However, the displacement of two liters when starting up and in intermediate lines that the car has "only" 110 hp. In this performance class, the competition mostly has motors with 1.5 or 1.6 liters of displacement – there are also the Yeti, but not in connection with all -wheel drive.

    You see it rarely in the city and if, mostly not washed and so you have the right impression right away. A farmer or hunter is for shopping in the city. With the license plate this is then confirmed . It is built and good enough only too expensive. Look – well a Yeti stop.

    I’ve had the thing for 4 years and 65.000 km. 2 x inspection, that was on the workshop (140 hp diesel). You can drive comfortably with 4 people, there is a lot of luggage behind the upright tailgate, lies at 140 like a board on the highway, in the city thanks to a small turning circle and 4.22 length absolutely practical. Comfortable high seating position, headroom full on all seats. And neither snow nor sandy paths are a problem with the 4×4. In short…I am completely satisfied. A real full year car without frills, but with everything you need. To the liter information… Who does not regularly 400 milk bags, but occasionally a chest of drawers or regularly stackable (!) Transported shopping boxes, the steep tailgate appreciates.

    In February 2014 I bought a Yeti 2.0 TDI with 103 kW, 4 x 4 and DSG in the elegance equipment. I can only confirm Mr. Lange’s advantages described. The Yeti is a car that, with its dimensions and its excellent all-round view of today’s parking lot, is simply incomparable as a mini SUV. In addition the many charging options. Only the exhaust gas scandal reduces ….

    For a Schkodda is not cool. And despite all the potholes in the western part, an additional 4×4 car does not need any. The very best, however, is 6.7 liters of consumption with a diesel…I can also lease a macan..

    How is there 6.7 liters of consumption? Drive the Yeti 2.0 TDI 140 hp now almost 90.000 km and come to an average of 6.2 l/100 km – and that on a brisk overland ride!!! Who 6.7 liters there "blows through", Should rethink his driving style! Then the Macan also has a lot of thirst!!
