Skoda Yeti 2010
The Škoda Yeti is a five-door five-seater mini SUV model built by the Czech car manufacturer Škoda Auto. It was introduced at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show in March, as the division's first entry into the popular SUV market. According to the European Car of the Year website, the Yeti was one of the runner-ups in the 2010 award.
The Yeti is available with three different trim levels: Experience, Ambition and Track (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 liters (14.3 cu ft), up to 1,760 liters (62.2 cu ft) when the rear seats are removed.

The Škoda Yeti has been awarded a 5-star safety rating by the Euro NCAP. 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. It also scored 71% in the Safety Assist equipment, as it comes with standand driver/passenger seatbelt reminders. 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) - which is currently standard equipment on most variants throughout Europe and optional on others. Protection against whiplash injury in the rear-impact (whiplash) test was also good.
