Wheels (Australia) - - Our Garage -

With the ar­rival of the Karoq mid-sized SUV, Skoda has of­fi­cially put the charis­matic but rel­a­tively un­pop­u­lar Yeti out to pas­ture. The re­place­ment sports a 110kw/250nm 1.5litre turbo-petrol four with ei­ther six-speed man­ual (yay!) or seven-speed dual-clutch ’boxes, a roomy cabin and a sub-$30k start­ing price. Like its pre­de­ces­sor, the Karoq is a bit of an in-be­tweener, size-wise, though it shouldn’t have any prob­lems im­prov­ing on the Yeti’s sales per­for­mance, which found fewer than 400 buy­ers in its fi­nal full year on sale.
