The standard Yeti is already a well-built and robust offroad-ready vehicle, which the Outdoor variant manages to improve upon. This chunky, attractive SUV comes with plenty of standard equipment, a roomy interior and excellent safety credentials.
As stylish as it is hardwearing, the Yeti Outdoor features lightweight 16-inch alloy wheels as standard. Also included are a range of body-coloured components, such as bumpers and side sills. A number of black-hued fixtures include roof rails and side protective mouldings. Among the vehicle’s range of exterior lighting are daytime running lights and front fog lamps.
Inside, the Yeti Outdoor really excels, with plenty of leg and headroom (especially the latter) for five adults to travel in comfort. The vehicle also comes with a generous boot space that starts at 416 litres, rising to 1,580 litres with rear seats folded. By removing the rear bench entirely, there is 1,760 litres of cargo capacity at your disposal.
Standard features include a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a leather multifunction steering wheel, electric front windows, air conditioning and remote central locking. There are plenty of cubby spaces too, such as an overhead tray and a refrigerated glove compartment that is also illuminated.
The Yeti Outdoor is available in two and four-wheel drive iterations. The latter features a dashboard-mounted button that automatically reconfigures onboard systems to better tackle steep inclines, downward slopes and less-than-perfect surfaces. Engine options include a 1.2-litre petrol unit which comes as standard and a trio of 2.0-litre diesel alternatives that offer varying power outputs. These range from 108bhp to 148bhp, the latter of which marries fuel-efficiency and brute force rather well.
A five-inch touchscreen infotainment system includes four loudspeakers, an MP3-compatible CD player, an AM/FM radio and Bluetooth, USB and AUX inputs.
The Yeti Outdoor has been awarded Euro NCAP’s maximum five-star rating. An array of driver aids include Anti-lock Braking System, Stability Control and Hill-hold Assist, while passive safety features such as ISOFIX attachments, front seatbelt reminders and seven airbags feature too. SE trims add rear parking sensors and cruise control, among other things.
