The Yeti is a well-priced crossover alternative to conventional family hatchbacks like the Ford Focus. The majority of Yetis are front-wheel drive, but the raised suspension does mean they’ll venture further off-road than most regular urban cars, while speed bumps in town hold no fear. Top-of-the-range models are available as 4x4, however. The Yeti has won praise from owners, coming top in the 2012 Driver Power survey and offering a broad range of specifications and engines that offer buyers everything from frugal to powerful for a decent price, offering a good-value alternative to the likes of the Nissan Qashqai and Volskwagen's Tiguan. All the engines are reasonable – with the small 1.2 TSI petrol engine not trailing the diesel options too far on economy. Even entry-level E-spec comes with air-con, although S models add alloys and a knee airbag for a few hundred pounds more.
