OverviewEdit

The Yeti is available with three different trim levels: Experience, Ambition and Track[1] (or Active in some markets). However in the UK it is available in four trim levels, E, S, SE and Elegance. Its luggage capacity, aided by the 'VarioFlex' rear seats, ranges from 405 litres (14.3 cu ft), up to 1,760 litres (62.2 cu ft) when the rear seats are removed.[2][4]

SafetyEdit

The Škoda Yeti has been awarded a 5-star safety rating by the Euro NCAP.[5][6] It scored an impressive 92% adult occupant protection in the frontal and side crash tests, 78% child occupant protection and 46% in the pedestrian safety test.[5] It also scored 71% in the Safety Assist equipment, as it comes with standand driver/passenger seatbelt reminders.[5] It also includes Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA), Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) and Electronic Differential Lock (EDS)[6] - which is currently standard equipment on most variants throughout Europe and optional on others.[5] Protection against whiplash injury in the rear-impact (whiplash) test was also good.[5]

It can be ordered with up to 11 airbags (dual front, front side torso, rear side torso, front and rear side curtain, and driver's knee airbag).[7]

PowertrainEdit

The powertrain offerings in the Yeti include a range of internal combustion engines, all of which are four cylinder]] (I4) four-stroke turbocharged[2] and EU5 emissions standard compliant.[7] petrol engines are all fuel injected and diesel engines are all common rail (CR) Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) with diesel particulate filter (DPF).
