Rear passengers will find the Skoda Yeti’s interior particularly comfortable. Thanks to individually sliding (not to mention removable) seats it’s flexible enough to offer adequate leg and elbowroom for two adults, and headroom is plentiful thanks to that squared-off rear end.
Up front is equally spacious. The driver and passenger seats suffer from a lack of lateral support, though, and some taller testers complained of difficulties in finding a comfortable driving position in relation to the steering wheel, which adjusts for rake and reach but would benefit from a broader range of movement in both respects.
Otherwise, the Yeti’s cabin is a good place to be. The Volkswagen Group’s presence can be felt in the basic dashboard architecture and control layout, and the standard colour touchscreen on higher trim models enhances the dash’s appearance and ease of use. Even despite its age, it certainly doesn't feel dated against the Qashqai, Ateca or Kuga's dashboard, but compared to the Tiguan's - they feel a world apart - something the new Karoq will rectify.
The broad windows and tall windscreen, meanwhile, let in plenty of light as well as affording excellent visibility. In terms of storage, the boot’s minimum capacity is decent, and if you get the rear seats out of the way, it's very good indeed thanks, in part, to that squared-off rear end.
Cabin noise is well insulated at any speed, though with the optional roof bars included wind noise is noticeable over the usual diesel drone at a motorway cruise.
