Attention to detail or lack of it is important in any long-term relationship with a car.

In the Yeti's favour, it features a cleverly concealed volumetric alarm isolator. So, temperatures and small window openings permitting, dogs can be locked briefly in the Skoda and it will allow canine movement without alarming themselves or passing pedestrians. However, in the minus column the handbrake's positioning, too close in front of the central console storage bin, results in tiresomely awkward arm-twisting on and off manipulation of the lever in urban stop-start conditions.
