It may look a little odd, both in proportions and thanks to the large round headlamp elements, but there is no denying the practicality of the Yeti. It's got high ground clearance, all-wheel drive, a powerful yet economical diesel, and for those who don't want all the bells and whistles, a two-wheel drive option as well. The interior has quality and practicality in spades - no car at this price point offers a three-point seat belt for the middle rear passenger, for example, or a cargo net to keep things from rolling around the big boot. The 'flexi-seating' is another unique point of the Yeti: if you're sure you're going to carry three passengers, you can extract the middle rear seat and leave it at home, thus creating extra shoulder room for the two rear passengers. The only thing the Yeti has going against it is its price, but that cannot be helped as it is a CBU, which means that most of the money you pay for it end up as taxes.
