Hello fellow Yeti's, I've just taken ownership of a Yeti SEL 2016 and am looking for some info...the first of several I imagine.
I need to purchase floor mats and a boot mat/tray (no spare wheel), any recommendations, I guess rubber mats are going to be more hard-wearing and cleanable. Thanks.

Hi Frances, welcome to the forum. I have had one of these in my boot for eight years and it is still as good as new. The flexible rubber sides mould to the sides with or without a spare wheel. The raised sides mean spillages are contained and it can be lifted out with dirt dust etc retained and hosed out if wanted. There are cheaper, but I have not got one of those. boot liner

Welcome to the forum Frances. :)

The original Skoda mats in both carpet and rubber have usually had good reviews on here.

Rubber every time. Carpets get grubby, are hard to clean and retain the dampness, whereas rubber either sweeps or hoses clean. They do smell a bit when new, but that wasn't a problem because rubber smells curiously attractive to me.

My two company car Yetis, came with carpet mat sets. The drivers one never lasted more than 20k for me, and I then had to replace the whole set even though rest ok. (Stupidly the lease company supplied a set of carpet mats with their logo on, despite the car coming with mats as standard!
I specified a rubber boot mat in my 2010 yeti, used it again in 2014 leased company Yeti, which also came with oem mats and the lease company mats, both of which I wore out in the 3 years I had that car.

Now own my own Yeti. 2010 rubber mat is still going strong in boot and still cleans up like new. I persuaded the dealer to swap out the standard carpet mats and replace with the heavy duty rubber ones in this car at no cost, as part of the deal, and at 35k the drivers mat is still in excellant condition, whilst the oem carpet mat would have worn through by now.

So much more practical, catches the mud and water off your shoes, and can easily be taken out and jet washed to clean them.

Welcome to the Forum, Frances.

I have fitted the boot liner recommended by The Hood and it really is excellent for the reasons given.

I have fitted Skoda OEM rubber mats firstly in my two Roomsters and now in my Yeti. These too are excellent. They are hugely more practical and hard wearing than OEM carpet mats, as Ken has described.

Welcome Frances, The Skoda rubber mats are well worth while. I took mine out of my first yeti to put in my second yeti. 9 years use and still like new no signs of wear. In the boot I just have a Tarpaulin which is light and can be unfolded for when the seats are down.

I posted this information in another thread for “New Yeti Owner”. Perhaps it would make more sense though and be easier to find in future if repeated under this title of “Car Mats”.

Fabric replacement mats for footwell and boot.

Can’t comment on the rubber mats as our Yeti (see signature) has used a bespoke set of fabric footwell mats for the last 7 years, in place of the original factory or supplying dealer fitted removable mats. They were fitted as part of the purchase deal, when the car was three years old, by the independent (i.e. non-franchised) Skoda specialist garage just outside Harrogate, where we bought the Yeti. (“Brookroyd Garage”). I think they originally came from SuperSkoda in the Czech Republic though.

They fit perfectly onto the original, plastic locating posts that protrude up from the floor, in the front footwells. Therefore preventing them doing a Toyota and riding up/forward to interfere with the operation of the pedals on the driver’s side. Quality and durability is very good. Even the driver’s mat is only slightly worn and marked over 140,000 miles since fitting. Just gets taken out for a vacuum and the odd “beating” against the garage wall once a month, to get the grit particles out.

In the boot we have an after-market black fabric mat with “Yeti” woven into the fabric, on top of the false floor that fits over the spare wheel. (Although I believe the same mat fits equally well in the low-floor boot.) That definitely came from SuperSkoda in 2015 for £23 delivered. Still good as new. It does a very good job of insulating our dog’s transport cage from the false floor proper. Protecting the latter from wear, dirt and spills very effectively. Plus is easily taken out for cleaning and a vacuum.

Bought a set of 4 rubber car mats from carmats4u.com and am very pleased, also bought a trunk tray (plastic) too, does the job well, cost £58 in total, recommended. I tried Eurocar parts first, they weren't at all compatible, even though the website claimed they were.

(If this is important to you.......?)
The facelift Yeti was badged YETI, whereas the pre-facelift was badged Yeti.

There are 'mats to match' for both styles.

It is however, why some online sellers list "Yeit" logo mats as only compatible with pre-face-lift cars, and "YETI" logo mats for post-face-lift cars. Despite the dimensions of the mats being identical, and either version of mat will fit either version of car.

I thoroughly agree, just as the op was told the boot mat I recommended would not fit their Yeti it most certainly would have. The boot at carpet level is the same in the pre f/l, post f/l and adblue Yeti. The volume of sales is probably not high enough for them to bother checking their information is correct.

When i had my car i had to get some mats, i prefer traditional mats rather than rubber in a car i use for personal use.
I got off E Bay for less than £20 but they did wear out under drivers foot they (fronts) had YETI on them but the writing is facing you, I "bought" a set off Jimmy and they have YETI on them but reading downwards and larger letters.
Just looking at both and Jimmy's had the clip holes in the rear ones as well as the fronts on both sets and the ebay ones had no fittings in them, but oddly my car has no fittings in the rear to clip them in.
I think i may have a couple of the studs somewhere from the Golf i had, will have to have a root around!
