Skoda Yeti SUV (2009-2017) - Interior & comfort
Seats are comfortable and there’s plenty of space inside the Skoda Yeti, but the ride is firm
The Skoda Yeti is a great car in which to spend time, with comfortable seats and plenty of space for all on board, although the ride is noticeably firm on certain surfaces. The Interior build quality is very good and the materials used look very capable of dealing with the harsh treatment that family life often brings.
Skoda Yeti dashboard
You’ll find the Yeti dashboard very familiar if you've sat in a Volkswagen Passat or Volkswagen Golf before and you’ll find it easy to use, too, with well positioned controls, clear dials and a lack of confusing buttons. Everything also feels durable and solid to the touch. Drivers of all shapes and sizes will find it easy to get comfortable as both the steering wheel and the seat have plenty of adjustment.
Standard equipment on the Yeti Outdoor is impressive and includes air-conditioning and electric front windows and door mirrors, a five-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, alloy wheels and remote control central locking.
The SE model has a dual-zone climate-control system and rear parking sensors, cruise control, dark-tinted glass and an infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen. There's also a central armrest and some useful practical touches such as a dashboard storage box, rails and hooks in the boot, plus a removable boot box.
The SE L brings heated seats and bi-xenon headlamps, while a Drive version of both models adds a heated front windscreen, unique alloy wheels and a sat nav system with DAB radio. The SE L Drive adds all-round parking sensors, LED rear lights and full leather trim.
Useful optional extras include a power-adjustable driver’s seat (£585) and a variable boot floor (£165), which gives even more flexibility for carrying luggage. The panoramic sunroof is expensive at £1,150, but does make the cabin feel nicely bright and airy, especially in summer. We’d also be tempted by DAB radio at £135 and the Driver Fatigue Assist monitoring system. It’s only £45 and helps to combat the worry of falling asleep at the wheel.
