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.
The Yeti now also comes with SE Drive and SE L Drive variants. Building on the SE variant which includes dual-zone climate control, cruise control, rear parking sensors and Bluetooth, SE Drive adds satellite navigation, auto-dimming rear view mirror, heated windscreen, heated front seats and front parking sensors. SE Drive variants are further distinguished by new seat upholstery and distinctive 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.
