Škoda to launch Yeti Urban for style-conscious UK buyers

Article by Anita Panait, on March 28, 2012

ŠKODA will introduce a limited-edition variant of its widely acclaimed Yeti compact sports utility vehicle dubbed as the Yeti Urban.  ŠKODA is building the Yeti Urban using the already popular SE trim as a basis, but attaches up to £2,450 worth of extra equipment at no added cost. The Yeti Urban will be banking on the huge success of the ŠKODA Yeti, with more than 8,800 units registered in the United Kingdom since it was launched in 2009.

The ŠKODA Yeti earned 12 independent product awards since then, and was popular with UK car buyers due to its on-road performance, family-orientated practicality and rugged design.

ŠKODA will build only 750 units of the Urban Yeti which is targeted at younger and more style-conscious UK buyers. The Yeti Urban also outpaces all other ŠKODA brands in terms of technology. The Yeti Urban will be the first model to be sold in the UK that has the DAB digital radio as standard. 

The Yeti Urban also features Amundsen+ satellite navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and a multi-function steering wheel that could control the audio system. The SUV is also fitted with 17-inch black-and-chrome 'Matterhorn' alloys, chrome side strips, wheel arch extensions, silver roof rails, silver door mirror caps, and stylish eye-catching roof stripes.

Customers could choose to fit the interior with either red or black sports seats and sunset glass in the rear. The Yeti Urban is a two-wheel-drive unit that uses manual gearbox to transmit power to the wheels from a choice of two engines.

The customer could choose the fuel-saving 1.2-litre TSI 105PS petrol engine that offers fuel economy of 44.1mpg (combined) and CO2 emissions of 149g/km. The customer could choose the 2.0-litre TDI CR 110PS DPF diesel engine that offers fuel economy of 52.3mpg (combined) and CO2 emissions of 140g/km.

ŠKODA offers four colour choices for the Urban Yeti, with no extra charges for metallic paint: Black Magic pearl effect, Candy White, Brilliant Silver metallic and Steel Grey metallic. Customers could also grab a number of accessories from ŠKODA’s retailers like stainless steel pedals for £80, sports exhaust trim for £50, and Nextbase Click 9 Lite Duo portable DVD player with twin 9-inch screens for £315. ŠKODA will begin selling the Yeti Urban in April 2012 with a price of £16,900 OTR for the petrol model and £18,330 OTR for the diesel.
