The Škoda Yeti (codenamed Typ 5L) is a compact SUV designed and built by the Czech car manufacturer Škoda Auto. It was introduced at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show in March, as the carmaker’s first entry into the popular SUV market. In 2009, the Yeti was awarded Family Car of the Year by Top Gear Magazine.
At the Geneva Motor Show in 2005, Škoda unveiled a concept car in the compact SUV category which it called the Yeti. Although the conceptual study of the Yeti was taken seriously with a view to the feasibility of a future series-produced vehicle, some of the solutions were ahead of their time and did not make it to the production stage, i.e. a single vertical windscreen wiper moving horizontally across the whole of the glass or horizontally divided hatch, the lower part of which was split into an inner and outer section so that two bicycles could safely be secured to the lowered outer section.
4 years later Škoda premiered production version of the Yeti at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. The car featured similar practical boxy design as the design study. Despite compact dimensions (length: 4,223 mm / 166.26 in; width: 1,793 mm / 70.60 in; wheelbase: 2,579 mm / 101.54 in), the Yeti offered spacious interior. Utilisation of interior was enhanced by the VarioFlex – the variable layout of the rear seats. This feature was taken from the Roomster. There are three separate seats with adjustable backrest inclination covering a range of 13.5°. The outer seats can slide backwards and forwards; after the middle seat has been removed, the outer seats can be moved 80 mm (3.15 in) towards the centre, thus creating exceptional room for two rear passengers. The possibility of folding down the backrest, and then folding the entire seat forwards, has not been changed. Once the seats have been folded over and forwards in this way, they can be removed by means of a simple release function. Differences compared to the VarioFlex system used in the Roomster: the cushion of the middle seat has been repositioned so that it is 70 mm (2.76 in) more towards the back compared to the outer seat cushions (in the Roomster it is level); the cushion of the middle seat is approximately 35 mm longer than the cushion in the Roomster; after the middle seat is removed, the outer seats can be moved towards the centre by 80 mm (in the Roomster by 110 mm / 4.33 in). Its luggage capacity, aided by the ‘VarioFlex’ rear seats, ranges from 405 litres (14.3 cu ft), up to 1,760 litres (62.2 cu ft) when the rear seats are removed.
