Skoda Yeti SUV

Skoda Auto will celebrate the extension of its model range to five with the introduction of the new Yeti at the Geneva Motor Show, a five-door vehicle that has the well-known features of the brand. The model has a great front end with a ribbed grille and friendly looking headlamps. To send the power to the road, the model uses 17-inch wheels. The carmaker has met the demands for a cleanly styled body, a high seat position and versatile operating options with a design, which despite its robustness, excludes lightness rather than bulky shapes. The new Yeti also takes care of the environment, it has great luggage space and it is also fantastic when it comes to safety and road holding. The model is easy to handle, so it is fun and dynamic to drive. As well as the stylish exterior of the Yeti, the driver and passengers feel safe. The specialists offer it with turbocharged and frugal engines. To be more precise, the Yeti is available with two petrol engines and three diesel ones. The entry one is a 1.2-liter petrol 4-cylinder petrol engine capable of developing 77 kW thanks to a turbo charger. It terms of fuel consumption, the numbers do not modify a lot. The other petrol engine offered is the 1.8-liter TSI capable of developing 118 kW, power sent to all four wheels. The diesel variants include a 2.0-liter TDI CR DPF with AWD capable of developing 81 kW, a 2.0-liter TDI CR DPF engine with AWD capable of producing 103 kW and last, but not least a 2.0-liter TDI CR DPF with AWD capable of developing 125 kW. The Skoda Yeti is a clever compact SUV with excellent handling characteristics and high agility, with outstanding off-road suitability and excellent traction.
