If Renault do the decent thing and introduce a manual 120tce then that might be possible as the test is manual petrol small crossovers - the Captur comes out well but the weak area appears to be performance for the 0.9tce engine, adding a larger engine for £1,000-ish would probably have changed the outcome. To be fair, Ford have been caught napping by the small crossover market and the EcoSport is a car designed for the Indian sub-continent that they've tried to 'Europeanise' with limited success.Ythsie said:Now if they had tested the 1.2 unit, it would have been a different case!...The Yeti uses a 1.2 turbo unit as its base!!
Like with like I would suggest...The Yeti has always been a quality contemder, with a lot going for it...but the styling of the Captur won me over!
I maintain that Skoda is an excellent choice in any of their cars and win hands down here in Poland.
This wasn't an under £16k test though!sasajak said:Surprising the Yeti won when the Captur is What Car's best buy for small SUV under £16k!
Funny that I've owned 2 VW group cars. They've been fab but I don't like the Yeti's looks and I don't see anything similar from Seat/VW etc. so it all boiled down to looks for me!Frank Bullitt said:This wasn't an under £16k test though!
I like the Yeti, and have owned a VAG product for 9 years and apart from a dicky crank speed sensor at 45k never had a problem (touch wood) but mrs FB can't stand 'em!
