After its initial release a few days ago, the facelifted Skoda Yeti has made its official public debut during the 2013 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show.
The revised Yeti has adopted the now familiar Skoda front fascia with the corporate grille, a sportier front bumper and bi-xenon headlights with LED DRLs. It also boasts two design lines now, the elegant and stylish Škoda Yeti for the town, and an adventurous off-road Škoda Yeti.
Both design variations feature a new front and rear, new alloy wheels, fresh interiors, updated functionality and extended engine/gear combinations – and both will be launched on the market by the end of the year.
“The Škoda Yeti is one of the most attractive compact SUVs on the market and has far exceeded our sales expectations since its launch four years ago,” says Škoda CEO Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland. He continues, “With this all-new look and being offered for the first time in two variations, we are establishing new benchmarks. We plan to continue our outstanding development in this rapidly growing vehicle class. The Yeti is another cornerstone of the 2018 growth strategy and will strengthen our international position in the markets.”
The 2014 Yeti is available with a choice of three gasoline and four diesel engines, with output ranging from 105 HP (77 kW) in the 1.2 TSI to 170 HP (125 kW) in the 2.0 TDI. Depending on engine choice, front- or all-wheel drive system is available, along with six-speed manual or six- and seven-speed DSG.
