Skoda Yeti camper

(1 customer review)

Skoda Yeti offers about 10cm shorter boot compared to other SUV Campers but comes with much lower consumption. It has been awarded Family Car of the Year by Top Gear Magazine. It’s a good car that you can convert into a camper easily, but don’t expect too much headroom or storage space. It’s best combined with a suitable car tent that will give you plenty of living room when camping, whilst you sleep in the boot.

This car's boot is 174 cm long ⤢, 80 cm tall ↕, and 101 cm wide ↔.

NimbleCamper rating: 2.6/5

Frequently asked questions:

You can – and people do, as you can see in our DIY camping conversions section. Yeti’s boot isn’t the longest or tallest, but you can get about 180cm x 100cm (feet) and 140cm(shoulders-between doors) maximum sleeping area (with the front seats pushed all the way to the back and rear seats folded down. The seats don’t fold completely flat, but enough to create a sleeping surface. It’s not enough to just throw a good mattress or camping mat on top of it and sleep – you will have to extend the sleeping area over the middle seats towards the front seats using plywood or similar materials. See our DIY camping conversions for ideas.

Yeti’s mileage (consumption) is very good for an SUV – you can get 7.1 l/100km or 40 MPG (UK)/33 MPG (US) out of it.

Yeti has a 55l tank, therefore at average of 7.1 l/100km, you can get around 774km/484miles on one tank.

The Skoda Yeti is a reliable car – it is a 4×4, but has a consumption of a standard family car. It performs well off-road, but also during normal use. Its safety tests are top-notch, scoring well in ANCAP and ADAC tests.

    NimbleCamper rating: 2.6/5 – shorter than an average SUV boot, but much better than average consumption. Good to drive on normal roads and does well off-road too. Best combined with a roof tent.

  • Average used price, GBP (2015) – I use Carsite.co.uk‘s price aggregates from 2015 (or the nearest possible year if not available), or, if not found, from autoscout24.com. For new cars, I specify the closest possible match (i.e. if released this year, it’s the new price, if released two years ago, it’s the 2-years old price etc). It’s here to give you a benchmark comparison (- a like for like, an apple with an apple) of the value of each car and for filtering purposes. It’s not meant to be used as an accurate estimate of used car value – it is updated once a year, so make sure you know what the car should cost at the time of purchase if you decide to buy one.
  • Boot dimensions – taken from various sources across the web, starting with official, supplemented with other reliable websites (like ridc.org.uk), supplemented by user-generated content – images of measurements from forums or social networks. It’s also used for filtering, comparison and to give you a good idea of the car’s suitability for camping.
  • Comfort rating – a benchmark used to simplify the car’s comfort & driving score based on equipment, furnishings, handling, safety, and costs ratings from external sources like whatcar.com, carwow.co.uk, autocar.co.uk etc. It gives you an indication of whether the car will drive and feel like a van (low rating) or offer better interior & handling (higher rating). A simple van-like car, for example, a Renault Kangoo is 0.5, a well equipped and comfortable car like a Ford S-Max is a 2. No hard math behind it, just an indicator, f.e. 0.5= basic car that does the job, 1.5 = hey, that’s nice to have!, 2 = oooh, comfyyyy.
  • Consumption – I take the average 2017 consumption or closest match from Fuelly.com, or if none is available, from other sources like honestjohn.co.uk. If there are not enough cars for a single year, an average for several years is calculated.
  • NimbleCamper rating – a weighted score of boot length (45% weight), boot height (40%), consumption (10%) and comfort (5%). The logic of weighing length & height higher than consumption and comfort is – headroom is important when you sleep in the back of the car, so is the length. A comfy ride is a factor, but you can sleep in a big car that’s not that comfy, however, it’s much harder to camp/sleep in a comfy car that’s too small. Read more about the NimbleCamper rating and criteria here.
    • a note for EVs (electric vehicles) – for consumption, I am using the Fuel Equivalent Consumption estimate by ev-database.org. It is usually much lower than combustion engines, giving EVs an advantage – which I think is fair. They do have a small disadvantage in terms of having to plan your trips around charging stations + longer waiting time, but that will get better over time. More charging stations, faster chargers and better batteries. Therefore I am not adjusting the calculation for EVs in any way.
    • In short: a litre of petrol contains about 8.9 kWh of energy. If we divide the energy consumption of an EV by this (f.e. 16 kWh/100 km divided by 8.9 kWh/litre), we get equivalent fuel consumption of 1.8 l/100 km.
