Skoda Yeti: The ultimate car for “outdoorsy” people (and the rest!)

When the Skoda Yeti launched just a few short years ago it was one of the most popular cars we’d ever sold, receiving exceptional launch reviews and winning the hearts of a range of die-hard USV drivers and outdoor enthusiast. As the model’s developed over the years, it’s only got better, and we think it’s one of the best cars on the market for drivers who love to explore the great outdoors.

Why do we think it’s quite so great?

The Skoda Yeti is Built for Outdoor Enthusiasts from the Ground Up

Quite literally from the ground up too – the Yeti comes with a decent ground clearance of 180mm, enough to ensure that you’ve got an idea elevated seated position and can handle rugged terrain and rural or outdoor challenges with the greatest of ease.

Of course, the knock-on benefit is that this mid-sized SUV then feels great on the open road too, being smooth and consistent to drive – probably why it was previously named the most satisfying car to own by UK drivers in the annual Auto Express Driver Power customer satisfaction survey 2012, 2013 and 2015!

We also have to mention, obviously, the electronically controlled four-wheel drive tech on this beauty – the practical and functional heart that makes this vehicle’s heart beat to quite such a wild drum.

Let the Outside in with the Yeti’s Panoramic Sunroof

It’s not only the build of the Yeti that makes the outdoorsy among us quite so happy – it’s also the fact that you never feel too separated from the environment around you, be it mountains, lakes or the in-city wilds.

The Yeti’s panoramic sunroof is ideal for filling the already spacious cabin with light and air, and is available as standards on the Laurin & Klement trim levels – and as an option extra on other models. It even has a sunshade and a wind deflector, to ensure the conditions are as good as they possibly can be – the only thing we can’t help with is the weather as soon as you step out of the car.

5 Star Safety – Exhilaration from the Great Outdoors Meets Comfort

When you’re in the heart of the great outdoors, the chances are you want to feel exhilarated – whether you’re going for a spot of rock climbing, bog snorkling or something even wilder. However, when you’re back in the car again you want to know that you are cocooned and safe.

Thankfully the 5 Star Euro NCAP safety rating of the Yeti Outdoor does just that, with both front and side airbags to ensure you are kept safe from every angle. It’s also suitable for all the family, with ISOFIX child seat fittings for the rear so you can keep your little ones safe and secure.

Finally, the Yeti is a Multi-award Winner

The Yeti has one many an award of the years, and some of them are especially relevant for drivers who want to use this SUV to make the most of all the outdoors space Great Britain has to offer them.

*Winner* - 2015 Auto Express Driver Power: Best Off-road/SUV category

*Silver* - 2017 Driver Power: Major Vehicle Judging Category - Reliability & Build quality

These are truly competitive awards, given because this car simply never fails to go above and beyond everyone’s expectations. So whether it’s the comfort of knowing you’re not likely to break down in an isolated spot (hopefully!) with the Reliability & Build quality Driver Power awards, or the excitement of knowing you’re driving one of the best vehicles in the country for off-roading, you can rest assured we’re not just blowing our own trumpets.
