Skoda Yeti trims

Skoda offers the Yeti in a broad spread of trims, starting with the E and then rising through S, SE, SE Plus, Elegance and Laurin & Klement. It means choosing which level of Skoda Yeti equipment you opt for can be a little confusing.

To make decision making even tougher the economical, low emissions Greenline II model also comes in S, SE and Elegance trims. Not all engines are offered with every trim level, so you also need to balance equipment levels with your preferred engine choice.

Standard Skoda Yeti equipment

The basic Skoda Yeti E comes with ESP, six airbags, 16-inch steel wheels, black-painted roof rails, electric door mirrors, electric front windows, air conditioning, CD stereo, height adjustable front seats and Skoda’s Varioflex seating with 40/20/40 split and fold rear seat.

Move up to the S and you get 16-inch alloy wheels, electric rear windows, driver’s knee airbag, remote central locking and Hill Hold function for the 1.2 TSI engine with DSG dual-clutch gearbox.

The SE then gains MP3 connector and additional stereo speakers, dual-zone air conditioning, Jumbo storage box, rear privacy glass and cruise control.

Choose the SE Plus and you enjoy satellite navigation, CD autochanger, folding tables in the back of the front seats, Bluetooth and third headrest for the back seat.

The Urban, now discontinued, added sports front seats, 17-inch alloy wheels, silver roof rails, wheelarch extensions and a DAB digital radio.

Towards the top of the Yeti range is the Elegance with leather seats (heated for the driver and front passenger), 17-inch Spitzberg alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, Bi-Xenon headlights, cornering front fog lights, Hill Hold Control (for 4x4 and Greenline II models), headlight washers and rain-sensing wipers. The Greenline II models ape the specification of their standard Yeti counterparts, although they come with smaller wheels as standard to aid fuel economy.

Topping off the Yeti range is the Laurin & Klement derivative, added at the beginning of 2013 and named after Skoda’s founders. It has the same equipment as the Elegance with the addition of 17-inch polished alloy wheels, silver roof rails, satellite navigation, DAB radio, a heated windscreen, panoramic sunroof and park assist, along with black leather upholstery and upgraded interior trim elements wearing ‘L&K’ logos. The Laurin & Klement is available in four-wheel drive only.

There are also two special editions, the Yeti Outdoor 4x4 and Monte Carlo. The former offers boosted ground clearance of 180mm and all-wheel-drive, while the latter is based on SE trim but comes with a black roof, plus black detailing on the spoiler, front grille and door mirrors.

Inside you get a three-spoke leather steering wheel, sports seats and Monte Carlo trim on the door sills, instrument cluster and floor mats. You can only have it with the 2.0-litre diesel engine and 4x4 transmission.

Optional Skoda Yeti accessories

Many of the accessories for the Skoda Yeti are there to underscore the car’s practicality, so it can be ordered with roof bars to mount a roof box or cycle and ski carriers.

Skoda’s internal Bicycle Carrier lets you stow two bikes inside the Yeti for safe transport and added security. A detachable tow bar is another option that can offer towing of up to 1600kg with a braked trailer, depending on engine choice.

Floor mats protect the car from dirt and a boot liner does the same for the luggage compartment, while a false boot floor allows you to store valuables such as a lap top or hand bag under the boot floor away from prying eyes.

Equipment updates ahead of 2014

As part of the facelift at the end of 2013, the Yeti gains the latest version of Skoda’s automatic parking assistant, which can automatically steer the car in both parallel and reverse parking maneuvers and, now, steer the car while pulling out of a space as well.

Keyless entry and start is also added to the equipment list, along with a reversible boot floor covering, and a detachable LED light in the boot.

Safety

4.5 out of 5 4.5

The Yeti was awarded the maximum five star rating in the tougher Euro NCAP crash tests, introduced in 2009. This new overall rating covers Adult Occupant Protection, Child Occupant Protection, Pedestrian Protection and a new area of assessment: Safety Assist.

All models get driver and passenger front, side and curtain airbags while E models and above also have a driver's knee airbag. ESP stability control, which prevents the car losing control in a skid, is standard on all 4x4 version and there are Isofix child seat mounting points in the rear seats.

Interior & boot space

5 out of 5 5.0

Although most Yeti drivers are unlikely to venture off road, the fact that the 4x4 model can easily cope with steep slopes and tricky terrain gives plenty of confidence if you're tackling wet fields or muddy tracks.

It also has a decent boot of 405 litres but this can be boosted to 510 litres - around the same as a Volkswagen Passat estate. That's thanks to the clever rear seats that can be individually folded or removed if needed, while the two outer seats can be moved closer to the centre of the car to increase shoulder room by taking the middle seat out.

The seats are easy to fold and easily light enough for one person to lift them in and out of the car. With them all out, boot space is boosted to a huge 1,760 litres - more than a Volvo V70.

How does the boot space compare?

Check the table below to see how the Skoda Yeti compares to other similar cars in terms of available boot space.

Model Boot space
Nissan Qashqai 430 litres
Skoda Yeti 416 litres
Peugeot 3008 354 litres
Suzuki Grand Vitara (05-14) 184 litres
