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 a car insurance quote for the new Skoda should note that prices and release dates are not yet confirmed but details are expected within weeks.
