Skoda launches range-topping Yeti Laurin & Klement

Article by Anita Panait, on January 26, 2013

Skoda is now offering a new range-topper for its Yeti model – the Yeti Laurin & Klement. The new range-topper offers customers outstanding value for money, as they could avail of more equipment that comes as standard with the flagship Laurin & Klement model. The Yeti Laurin & Klement, now available to order as a distinct trim level, features the same technical specification and features as the Yeti Elegance.

However, the Yeti Laurin & Klement is now endowed with over £4,000 worth of features, and customer could avail one for just £2,000 more on the Recommended Retail Price. The Yeti Laurin & Klement is available only as a four-wheel-drive model. Buyers could choose between three engine options: the 1.8-litre TSI 160PS 4x4, 2.0-litre TDI CR 140PS 4x4 DSG DPF and 2.0-litre TDI CR 170PS 4x4 DPF.

Skoda traditionally badges its flagship high specification models as Laurin & Klement, as a tribute to the brand’s impressive history as a bicycle, motorcycle and car maker. Laurin & Klement as a company was founded in Bohemia by Václav Laurin and Václav Klement. It was acquired by the Skoda Works in 1925, and since then, it has been operated under Skoda Auto as a brand.

Skoda Yeti has off-road design features meant for special tasks. The brand wants to assure everyone of its excellent quality and its characteristics that make it ideal for daily usage.

However, the fifth Skoda model does have the attributes of the brand; making the new compact SUV identifiable as a member of the family. This aspect has already been seen in the design study displayed in 2005. In particular, the Skoda logo is positioned above the rib-shaped grille, which is highlighted with a chrome wrap.

Looking at the grille, the feature lines go up the bonnet, loosen up the surface, and find its aesthetic counterpart in the internal center console. The Skoda Yeti has large headlamps that have been installed quite higher, giving the front a friendly appearance.

The side has clear and serene lines. Meanwhile, the compact SUV gets a more distinguished character with its unique projecting wheel arches and wings.

The lower body protective panels of the SUV are hallmarks of any vehicle that can be driven off-road.

Moreover, there are features like black C pillars and roof rails that are standard. The rear design is simple as well. The rear lights are C-shaped. The smooth and vertical tailgate can easily be opened and moved far upwards. With this feature, tall drivers will have no problems on standing underneath when it is positioned upwards.

To encourage the impression of a continuous window surface to the B-pillar, the tailgate window’s appearance is wrapped around the body. Thus, visor optics become the special feature of Skoda compact class.

Located at the front and rear, there are features like underbody protection strips that are indicative of its off-road suitability. Moreover, its front fog lamps improve its front visuals.
