Skoda Yeti Earns Green Apple Award

Skoda’s model range has no real sportscars and we’ve never read any press releases describing the Yeti as being a luxury crossover, yet they sales are increasing steadily despite the slow-down of the European market. So they must be doing something right with their balance of practicality and build quality, a fact that was clearly demonstrated when the Yeti received another award, the International Green Apple Environment Award.
To be more precise, the Skoda Yeti E 2.0 TDI Cr won the inaugural category ‘Smaller SUV & 4x4’. This was judged by members of the Midland Group of Motoring Writers, who were invited to nominate their favourite contender from a shortlist of four. The Yeti’s performance - its emissions of 140 g/km of CO2, coupled with its practicality - won it this year’s award.

“It does everything you need a car to do and you get a lot of car for the money. This is actually that rare beast, an SUV with luggage space,” commented the judges.

“The Yeti has been a game-changing car for ŠKODA and to win an award based around its environmental credentials is fantastic. That we’re the first winner of this honour makes it doubly special,” added Skoda UK Product Marketing Manager, Chris Horrell.

So even though it won’t turn heads, the fact that it won’t ruin wallets or the environment is good enough for the Yeti.
