Yeti 1.2 TSI, 1.4 TSI and 1.6 TDI under the microscope
With the Yeti, Skoda was ahead of the SUV trend, and how. With its mischievous face on an otherwise fairly rectangular carriage, it was quite a striking thing. You might even argue that this model, introduced in 2009, was the nicest modern product from Skoda’s stables, but we are not going to have that discussion here. We look at practical consumption, safely and objectively.
Skoda’s crossover was available with a choice of engines. The 1.2 TSI with 105 hp, the 1.4 TSI with 122 hp or the 160 hp 1.8 TSI: as a petrol driver you had a choice. Diesel drivers could also get their money’s worth, with a 1.6 TDI and various power variants of the 2.0 TDI. The 1.8 TSI was always four-wheel drive, with every 2.0 TDI available as an option. In 2017 we said goodbye to the Yeti, which now had a less mischievous nose.
Consumption Yeti 1.2 TSI
Nowadays petrol engines are the most interesting, which is why we start with the 105 hp 1.0 TSI. Of these, 12 users keep track of their consumption, with an average result of 1 in 13.4 (7.5 l/100 km). If we look at the extremes, a consumption of 1 in 15.3 (6.5 l/100 km) tops the list. Unfortunately, the owner did not keep punching in the fuel receipts for long. If we look at the lowest consumption over a serious number of kilometers, then 1 in 14.6 (6.8 l/100 km) is the most favorable value.
The least economical Yeti drove 1 in 11.3 (8.8 l/100 km), measured over a distance of 65,769 kilometers. The owner of this car has been tracking fuel consumption since the first refueling in 2012 and continues to do so to this day. The average of about 6,000 kilometers per year probably partly explains the higher consumption. By the way, this owner does not save on fuel. It almost only uses E5 petrol, unless 102 octane is available.
Other engine variants
Only five users of the 1.4 TSI keep track of their consumption, which turns out to be an average of 1 in 12.3 (8.1 l/100 km). In line with expectations, let’s just say. Five 1.6 diesel drivers also decided to entrust their fuel values to the internet, with 1 in 18.3 (5.5 l/100 km) as a result.
With the Yeti, Skoda was early in the compact SUV segment and they also did a good job in downsizing the engine. Especially for the latter reason, the average result of the smallest petrol engine may be a bit disappointing. Especially because with a (slightly newer) 1.2 TSI in a Skoda Octavia the average speed is 1 in 16.9.
