The Top Gear car review:Skoda Yeti

Editor’s choice
Overall verdict
Here’s a family car with a twist. The Yeti is a fabulous all-rounder.


Oodles of genuine 4x4 talent and practicality, now even better to drive


Lifting out the removable seats is hard, facelifted one not as pretty


What is it?

Until the Skoda Yeti arrived, the Nissan Qashqai had the crossover market all to itself. Then Skoda came along with the Yeti and started stealing sales, and rightfully so. The Yeti combines car-like handling with a dash of rough-road ability and a flexible cabin in which to pack children and pets. There’s a lot to like about the Yeti: it remains one of our favourites in this sector. That’s despite a facelift that makes it look less pretty and appealing – that’s how good it is.

The Yeti will soon be replaced by the Skoda Karoq, you can see the TG review here.
