Skoda Yeti goes urban and rural

Skoda Yeti goes urban and rural

There are two variations of the new-look Skoda Yeti - one is designed to appeal to urban motorists and the other has a more off-road feel.

The outdoors-themed version retains the dark grey plastic bumper and exterior trim of the Yeti's previous incarnation, while the on-road Yeti is fully body-coloured.

Other changes are primarily cosmetic rather than under the bonnet, as both vehicles at the entry level are powered by the acclaimed 1.2-litre 104bhp turbocharged petrol engine with a 168bhp diesel unit at the top of the range.

Customers are given a greater choice than in the past in terms of exterior colours and wheel designs, while both two- and four-wheel drive are available depending on the engine chosen.

Somewhat confusingly, despite the distinctive stylings the urban and off-road versions are called the Yeti without any additional name to differentiate them.

Any prospective owners starting to think about finance options and acar insurance quote for the new Skoda should note that prices and release dates are not yet confirmed but details are expected within weeks.
