Skoda’s practical small crossover – the Yeti has been updated in the UK. There are now two new variants on offer with more equipment and refreshed exterior trims.
Yeti now also comes with SE driver and SE L driver variants. The SE variants of the building include double-decked weather control, cruise control, rear parking sensors and Bluetooth, the SE driver adds satellite navigation, auto-dimming rearview mirrors, windshield heating, heated front seats and front parking sensors. The SE drive variable further distinguishes the new seat trim and the unique 17-inch alloy wheels.
Based on the SE L trim, SE L Drive variants get leather upholstery, LED rear lights, part silver roof rails, 17-inch alloy wheels and Bi-Xenon headlights additionally.
The Yeti SE Drive and SE L Drive are available with three engines; two diesels and one petrol. The 1.2 TSI petrol engine generates 110bhp and comes paired with either a six-speed manual or six-speed DSG automatic gearbox. The 2-litre TDI 110bhp comes with a manual gearbox and the option of four-wheel drive. Those choosing the more powerful 2-litre TDI 150bhp get four-wheel drive as standard.
Since its launch in the UK in 2009, the Yeti has been a sales success, with over 13,600 being registered in in 2016 alone – its best ever year.
