Skoda Yeti

The new Skoda Yeti has been revealed, with the GreenLine version returning 61mpg and emitting 119g/km CO2 emissions.

It will also be available in two variants: one for the town, and one for off-road.

The new Yeti has a selection of four diesel and three petrol engines – all turbocharged and with direct injection. Engines range from the 1.2 TSI with 105 hp to the 2.0 TDI with 170 hp, with either front or all-wheel drive with Haldex coupling. A six or seven-speed dual clutch transmission (DSG) is also on offer.

The GreenLine version 1.6 TDI, with front wheel drive and a manual gearbox, produces CO2 emissions of 119 g/km, corresponding to economy of 61mpg.

There are also three Green tec engine variants: the 1.4 TSI, 2.0 TDI with manual six-speed gearbox, and 1.6 TDI/77 kW with seven-speed DSG. The Green tec package includes the Start-Stop System, brake energy recovery and low rolling resistance tyres.

The diesel engine 2.0 TDI is available with the combination of all-wheel drive and automatic six-speed dual clutch transmission. The front-wheel drive Yeti 1.6 TDI is now to get an automatic seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The Yeti has electronically controlled all-wheel drive (fifth generation Haldex coupling), electronic differential lock and a ground clearance of 180mm. Options include hill descent control and an electronic tyre pressure monitoring system.

The VarioFlex rear seat system means that the three rear seats can be individually folded or removed and the outer seats can be shifted across with the middle seat removed. The Yeti is the brand’s first model with an optional rear-view camera.

Both new Yeti models are to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September and by the end of 2013 both new Skoda Yeti variants will have been launched.

UK pricing and specification will be announced nearer to the on sale date.
