Our Fleet Test Drive: Skoda Yeti - 8th Report

Date: 29 October 2010   |   Author: Hugh Hunston

Category: lower medium crossover
P11D price: £15,820
Key rival: Nissan Qashqai

After 3200 miles, our two-wheel-drive 1.2 TSi petrol Skoda Yeti's fuel consumption remains, at 39.0mpg, stubbornly 5mpg adrift of the ambitious official combined figure.

This prompts periodic envy over the 2.0-litre diesel counterpart's 50mpg-ish capability, which computes to 143 more miles' range. But what the petrol engine, with five horsepower less, lacks in frugality it makes up for in smoothness. Plus it's £1300 cheaper than the oil burner, although the diesel registers 9g/km lower on the CO2 front, which still puts it two BIK bands higher than our car.
