Prices, specs and rivals

A few years back Skoda streamlined its Yeti lineup into two separate variants, the Yeti, and the Yeti Outdoor. Both of these offer variants in S and SE trim, but a sporty Monte Carlo trim level is exclusive to the regular Yeti while the Yeti Outdoor gets SE Business, SE Technology, and the range-topping Laurin & Klement trim levels.

Okay, so that's probably less streamlined than the old range, but it does make choosing your Yeti a little easier as you're essentially selecting between the urbane character of regular Yetis or a slightly more rufty-tufty image for Outdoor models. Then it's just a case of choosing your engine and trim level.

Prices start at £17,210 for the 1.2 TSI in S specification, SE adding £1550 to that. A Monte Carlo with the same engine begins at £19,700. Diesel models kick off at £18,555 (in S trim) and specifying DSG adds £1100 to the price of a given model. 4x4 is only available on the top-end TDI and only in Monte Carlo trim on the regular Yeti; prices start at £24,385.

Conveniently, model-for-model the Yeti Outdoor is identically priced, with a £17,210 starting point. Here SE Business and SE Technology models start at £20,105 (with the 2.0 TDI 110 engine), and £20,285 gets the same TDI unit with 4x4 in S trim. The luxurious Laurin & Klement is 4x4 only, with the 1.4 TSI costing £25,170 and the 2.0 TDI 150 starting at £26,435.

S models are usefully specified with 16in alloy wheels, an iPod compatible stereo, aircon, a leather wheel and gearknob, fog lamps and daytime running lights, and the usual suite of ESP and other safety systems. SE gains larger 17in alloy wheels, cruise control, rear parking sensors, climate control, a touchscreen entertainment system with aux-in and USB sockets as well as some additional stowage solutions inside. Monte Carlo gets a more sporting look inside and out, while Laurin & Klement leaves you wanting for nothing.
