With January continuing to be the coldest on record and more snow predicted the benefits of a 4x4 has become more and more attractive.

The Skoda Yeti has all the benefits of a 4x4 combined with the practicality of a family hatchback. The Skoda Yeti has no problem with the present weather conditions thanks to its ability to tackle rough terrain and wintry conditions. Robert Hazelwood, Skoda UK Director explains “no one could have expected the snowy conditions we have experienced so far this year and with more forecast until the end of January, having suitable transport to get around is essential. The Skoda Yeti is a versatile family car no matter what the weather.”

The Skoda Yeti is available in front wheel or four wheel drive in a choice of five diesel or petrol engines and four trim levels. Robust and solid looking with 17 inch wheels, the Skoda Yeti exudes lightness rather than looking bulky. The 4.2 metre long five door vehicle bears the well known and distinctive features of the brand. There is an impressive front end with a ribbed grille and stylish headlamps.

Equipment levels are high across the range with electric front windows and CD player, air conditioning, six airbags and Skoda’s hugely practical Varioflex seating standard on all models.

The Skoda Yeti gives today’s drivers exactly what they require: economical running costs, outstanding flexibility, great practicality, and less impact on the environment. The Skoda Yeti is priced from £13,990 and was named ‘Family Car of the Year 2009’ in the Top Gear Awards.
