What should I be paying?
It’s not as cheap as it should be. Prices start at £15,995 for the mealy-mouthed 1.6-litre petrol, rising to over £18,000 for even the basest 1.4 turbo. At least the engines are passably economical: a real-world 50mpg-plus is easily achievable from the 1.7 CDTi diesel, which emits a healthy 120g/km of CO2 in eco-guise, and the 1.4T petrol can officially average nearly 45mpg – that’s better than the yawning 1.6. Just avoid base Tech Line trim. Exclusiv is the one to go for, as it comes with the must-haves missing on the cheaper car. But must you, when a Skoda Yeti does so much more?
