Czech carmaker Skoda continues to implement its strategy of rolling out eight new or face-lifted models before the end of 2013 with the world unveiling of the face-lifted Yeti at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. This revised version of the Yeti crossover will be available in two different variants: Yeti and Yeti Outdoor.
Skoda designed the first version to look smooth and sleek, making it feel at home in the big city with features like body-colored bumpers, side protective moldings and rear panels. On the other hand, the Yeti Outdoor features black plastic moldings that complement the crossover's rugged and dynamic looks.
The Skoda Yeti will be powered by one of six different engine options and two drive options (front-wheel-drive or all wheel drive). The engines could be paired to a new fifth-generation Haldex coupling.
The revised Yeti also features new alloy wheel designs and fresh interior design options such as steering wheels, new seat fabrics or decorative trim pieces. A customer could opt to equip his Yeti with a parking camera.
Werner Eichhorn, member of the Skoda board for sales and marketing, remarked that the Yeti is "doing great not only in the showrooms, but also on the roads or in rough terrain.” He remarked that the more attractive and versatile Yeti will allow the carmaker to strengthen its market position further.
