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.

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.

The new Skoda Yeti could now be specified in either of the two individual design lines; one lends the compact SUV an elegant city look while the other bestows the vehicle with an off-road appearance. The city version has a number of front and rear elements -- bumpers, side moldings, door sills and underride guard – finished in body color. On the Skoda Yeti Outdoor variant, these elements are specified in black plastic. Moreover, the Skoda Yeti Outdoor version comes with silver exterior rear-view mirrors as standard.

In terms of styling, the new Skoda Yeti adopts the carmaker’s new design language, resulting to stunning changes in the front and rear ends of this compact SUV. This new design language has lent the new Yeti precise edges and lines, a renewed focus on horizontal lines, as well as a new vehicle logo.

Meanwhile, the front ends of the Yeti and the Yeti Outdoor are defined by a characteristic grille as flanked by redesigned headlights. Skoda is now making available as options for the Yeti bi-xenon headlights and integrated LED daytime running lights. The Yeti’s front fog lights are now rectangular in shaped and are now found further under the SUV’s front bumpers.

On the rear, the new Yeti boasts of a new layout that includes new tailgate shape with unique rear lamps in C design. The rear lights could be specified as LED units. Sitting beside the new Skoda logo are two cubist triangular elements.
