The Škoda Yeti is one of our favourite crossovers to review as a tow car. Recent changes have brought the Yeti’s appearance into line with more recent models, and have split the range in two between the regular Yeti, which bridges the gap between SUV and hatchback, and the tougher-looking Yeti Outdoor. 

Our experts tested the most fuel-efficient standard Skoda Yeti, the Greenline II. Powered by a 1.6-litre diesel engine, it achieves a claimed 61.4mpg on the combined cycle and emits 119g/km of CO2 which puts the car in Band C for Vehicle Excise Duty.

They hitched it up expecting outstanding fuel efficiency, stability at motorway speeds, a practical and flexible cabin, and enough boot space to cope with holiday luggage.
