The Town Yeti and the Off Road Yeti
For the first time the Yeti SUV will be available in two variants either the stylish and elegant version for around town or the adventurous Yeti for off-road. Both of the new design variations feature a new front and rear, new alloy wheels and fresh up to date interiors.
Skoda CEO Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland said “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. 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.”
Both the new Yeti’s feature a distinctive front grille and redesigned headlights and available as an option for the first time Bi-Xenon headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights. The front headlights are now rectangular and are now located further under the front bumpers. The layout of the rear includes a new form of tailgate with distinctive tail lights now in even more precise moulded C-Design, optionally available with LEDs, and, in line with the new Skoda look, two cubist triangular elements alongside the new Skoda logo. The new Yeti models have got an all-new fresh interior that includes 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 revised Skoda Yeti also gets four new Simply Clever solutions. The double-sided floor covering in the boot is new and there is also a detachable LED light in the boot, a vest holder under the driver's seat and a waste container in the side door of the Yeti. The Skoda Yeti VarioFlex rear seat system is unique; the rear seats can be individually folded or removed. The outer seats can be shifted across with the middle seat removed, in a jiffy the Yeti is transformed from a five to a four seater, making more space for the rear passengers.
Two new features that make their appearance in the Yeti for the first time is the automatic lock and start system namely KESSY and the Optical Parking Assistant which enables the Yeti to automatically reverse and parallel park and pull out.
The world premiere for these two new models will be next month at the Frankfurt Motor show, UK pricing and specification will announced nearer the on sale date.
