It’s yet another honour for the Yeti. ŠKODA’s acclaimed compact SUV has won a prestigious International Green Apple Environment Award.

The honour has been bestowed by The Green Organisation, an independent group dedicated to promoting the positive side of environmental behaviour. In existence since 1994, its annual awards highlight the benefits and profits that can come from environmental best practice.

This year is the first time it has chosen to honour new cars, and selected the ŠKODA Yeti E 2.0-litre TDI CR as the inaugural winner in the ‘Smaller SUV & 4×4’ category.

The award 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 E 2.0-litre TDI CR’s outstanding environmental performance – 52.3mpg (combined) fuel economy and only 140g/km CO2 emissions – coupled with its practicality and versatility, edged out the competition.

“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 awards presentation took place at a special event at the House of Commons on Monday 14 November.

ŠKODA UK Product Marketing Manager, Chris Horrell was delighted with the prize. “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.”

The ŠKODA Yeti E 2.0-litre TDI CR is available from £16,170.
