In addition to the front-wheel drive version, Skoda offers the Y eti also as an all-wheel drive variant. A fully automatic, electro-hydraulic Haldex clutch involves the rear axle in propulsion should the front axle struggle in vain for grip. The force distribution is variable, depending on how much wheel slip the sensors report to the control unit. A simple and effective 4x4 that significantly improves traction on wintry roads.

Skoda Yeti 1.8 TSI 4x4 with low fuel consumption

In the Skoda Yeti 1.8 TSI 4x4, the turbo-charged four-cylinder ensures quiet and cultivated manners. 160 HP sounds like plenty of power in all situations, but practically the Skoda does not tear any trees with it, and it lacks the bearish power of a TDI.

This is particularly noticeable on motorway inclines, where the 1,562 kilo Yeti sometimes demands full throttle in sixth gear. This has consequences for fuel consumption, which in the test medium is a less than ideal 10.4 L /100 km. The TDI engines, on the other hand, are satisfied with six to eight liters, but run rougher.
