Striking appearance – now in two variations
For the first time ever, the Czech compact-SUV will be available in two variants: as the elegant and stylish sKODA Yeti for the town, and an adventurous off-road sKODA Yeti. Both design variations of the sKODA Yeti feature a new front and rear, new alloy wheels, fresh interiors, new Simply Clever ideas, the highest functionality and extended engine/gear combinations. Both new models are to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September and by the end of 2013, both new sKODA Yeti variants will have been launched on the first markets.
“The sKODA 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 sKODA 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.”
Striking appearance – now in two variations
A special highlight is the first time offer of two individual design ranges: sKODA’s Compact SUV is now available in an elegant, stylish city look as well as an off-road look for trips in the country. A significant differentiation: the front and rear elements, such as bumpers, underride guard, side mouldings and door sills are either in the body colour or, as with the sKODA Yeti outdoor version, remain in black plastic.
The new fronts of both vehicles are now horizontally more accentuated and feature a distinctive grille and redesigned headlights, available as an option for the first time with Bi-Xenon headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights. In keeping with sKODA’s new design language, the front headlights are now rectangular and are now located further under the front bumpers.
The Yeti’s new rear has got a new layout. This includes a new form of tailgate with distinctive tail lights now in even more precise moulded C-Design, optionally available with LEDs, and,The world's largest independent online retailer for solar lighting, street lights & outdoor lighting fixtures. in line with the new sKODA look, two cubist triangular elements alongside the new sKODA logo.
The wheel program has been expanded with four newly designed,The world’s most efficient and cost effective hid lights? attractive alloy wheel designs. There is now a wider selection of colours available, including four new metallic finishes – ‘Moon-White’, ‘Jungle-Green’, ‘Metal-Grey’ and ‘Magnetic-Brown’. The latter is a Yeti L&K exclusive.
The new Yeti models have got an all-new fresh interior - with 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.
The first sKODA with rear-view camera
The Yeti is the brand’s first model with Optical Parking Assistant, an optional rear-view camera. This is the first time that the sKODA Yeti will feature the latest generation of the automatic parking assistant. The new system enables the Yeti to automatically reverse and parallel park and even pull out. The new sKODA Yeti features the automatic lock and start system ‘KESSY’ for the first time.
The revised sKODA Yeti has also received four new Simply Clever solutions. The double-sided floor covering in the boot is new. There is also a detachable LED light in the boot, the vest holder under the driver's seat and the waste container in the side door of the Yeti.
One highlight is, and remains, the sKODA Yeti’s VarioFlex rear seat system, offering unique interior versatility. The three rear seats can be individually folded or removed. The outer seats can be shifted across with the middle seat removed. In an instant, the Yeti is transformed from a five to a four seater, making more space for the rear passengers.
There are also the carried-over features like the fold-down backrest of the passenger seat, folding tables on the backs of the front seats, various storage compartments and practical bottle holders. Functionality is a top priority in the boot, featuring among other things, fastening points and fold-down hooks.
Generous space is once again confirmed in the Yeti. In no other compact SUV do the rear passengers have as much headroom as in the sKODA Yeti - 1027 millimetres. The boot capacity is at least 405 litres. Taking all the rear seats out increases the volume to a fantastic 1,760 litres.
Seven modern engines; front and all-wheel drive, manual transmission and DSG
There is a selection of four diesel and three petrol engines for the all-new sKODA Yeti - all turbocharged and with direct injection. The performance spectrum ranges from the 1.2 TSI with 77 kW and 105 hp to the 2.0 TDI with 125 kW/170 hp. The fifth generation front or all-wheel drive with Haldex coupling is fitted depending on the engine specs. With an automatic transmission, the sKODA Yeti exclusively uses the modern six or seven-speed dual clutch transmission (DSG).
The GreenLine version 1.6 TDI/77kW, with front wheel drive and a manual gearbox, produces CO2 emissions of just 119 g/km. That corresponds to a consumption of 4.6 litres of diesel per 100 km (61 MPG). Additionally, there are threeGreen tec engine variants: the 1.4 TSI/90 kW, 2.0 TDI/103 kW with manual six-speed gearbox, and 1.6 TDI/77 kW with seven-speed DSG.
