The face-lifted Skoda Yeti is to be unveiled at next month’s Motor Show in Frankfurt.
For the first time the Yeti will be available in two variants, a pretty one for the city and a more utilitarian version for the country. The main difference is in the front and rear elements, such as bumpers, under ride guard, side mouldings and door sills are either in the body colour or in the case of outdoor version they remain in black plastic.
The front has been redesigned with new lights including the option of Bi-Xenon headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights. The rear has changed with a new tailgate and the option of LED rear lights.
There is a wider selection of alloy wheels including four new metallic finishes – ‘Moon-White’, ‘Jungle-Green’, ‘Metal-Grey’ and for the L&K model ‘Magnetic-Brown’.
The interior features a new 3-spoke steering wheels in seven variations, new fabrics and patterns for the seat covers as well as new decorative trims on the dashboard.
Skoda Yeti Engines
The transmission combinations have increased - there is a choice of seven engines, front and all-wheel drive, manual transmission and DSG. For example the 2.0 TDI with 170 hp is available with all-wheel drive and automatic six-speed dual clutch transmission.
The engine line-up remains unchanged with four diesel units and three petrol engines which are all turbocharged and with direct injection. They range from the 1.2 TSI 105 hp to the 2.0 TDI 170 hp.
