Since launch, the Yeti has been renowned as a rather expensive option for something that wears a Skoda badge. However, compared to the rivals which have grown up around it, the car doesn't immediately appear to be particularly overpriced. 

Unlike much of the competition, the Yeti starts at around £20k, while that is more than its closest rivals, you have to remember the Yeti is coming to the end of its lifespan. Considering the model's established and favourable position in the market, that's competitive. Beyond that point, things do admittedly get a little more sticky for the Yeti's comparative values. Buy in SE-L trim and, with the big diesel lump, the Yeti edges over £25k - the sort of money which buys a newer, bigger and objectively superior all-wheel drive Nissan Qashqai or a mid-range 4Drive Seat Ateca

The running costs will be on a par with a normal hatchback

Notably, the former crossover, in lower spec, can be had in 99g/km CO2 emitting format - something which Skoda still fails to offer. Broadly speaking, that isn't shameful, but with newcomers like Seat Ateca lower on emissions, it shows well enough the pace at which the segment is progressing.
