Welcome to the Skoda Yeti

The Yeti is basically a Volkswagen put together in the Czech Republic (the chassis is a VW Golf) and the build quality is what you'd expect. I can honestly say this is the best car I've ever had, and I still get a thrill out of getting into it every day, and my pupils are just as thrilled as I am. I had a Clio for years and loved it, but decided I needed a more practical car and I'm so glad I made that decision.

Size comparison between Renault Clio and Skoda Yeti:

Clio L 4062 W 1945 H 1440

Yeti L 4200 W 1956 H 1691

As you can see the dimensional difference is minimal, but as the French say "Vive la difference". The main size difference is in height, which gives a superior seating position and all round view, perfect for manoeuvres, control and planning. So many new drivers these days are intimidated when having to move from a very small car to a more realistically sized one, when actually the size difference is minimal but the psychological issues restrict them. In these days when mothers are transporting children with all the attendant baggage for school runs etc, it makes sense to gain a more representative driving experience. Check out Jeremy Clarkson's review on YouTube as well as others to see what I mean.
