It seems that Skoda will introduce a new model on the UK market. The Yeti Urban was built as a limited edition and the 750 units they offer can be purchased starting next month. One of the best things about this compact SUV is that despite the fact it features GBP 2.450 worth of extra equipment, the carmaker does not ask for extra money. On the inside the new model is being offered with a choice of red or black sport seats and in the rear it has tinted glass. This is actually the first model in the UK to have DAB digital radio from the beginning. The carmaker offers the car with two variants when it comes to the engine. One of them is a 1.2-liter TSI petrol capable of developing 105 PS and the second one is a 2.0-liter TDI CR DPF that is producing 110 PS. The power from both engines is being transferred to the wheels through a manual transmission. The petrol version of the Yeti Urban has a starting price of GBP16.900 and the petrol one, GBP18.330.
NEW ?KODA YETI URBAN: LIMITED-EDITION SUV TARGETS STYLE-SAVVY CUSTOMERS
?KODA is launching a limited-edition version of its critically acclaimed Yeti compact SUV. Called the Yeti Urban, it is based on the already highly popular SE trim, but features up to Pound2,450 worth of extra equipment at no extra cost when compared to the SE.
The ?KODA Yeti compact SUV has been a huge sale success since it was launched in 2009 - more than 8,800 have been registered in the UK.
It won 12 independent product awards along the way, and charmed UK car buyers with its on-road performance, family orientated practicality and rugged styling. This new model - restricted to just 750 cars - will extend that appeal to younger and more style-conscious UK buyers.
The Yeti Urban also sets a new benchmark for technology in ?KODA cars. It's the first model to be sold in the UK with DAB digital radio as standard. Over and above SE trim, Yeti Urban includes Amundsen+ satellite navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and a multi-function steering wheel to control the audio system and telephone.
Additional design features include stunning 17-inch black-and-chrome 'Matterhorn' alloys, wheel arch extensions, chrome side strips, silver door mirror caps, silver roof rails and stylish eye-catching roof stripes. Inside, customers have the choice of red or black sports seats and sunset glass in the rear.
The Yeti Urban is available in two-wheel-drive with manual transmission only, and comes with a choice of two engines. The petrol option is the frugal 1.2-litre TSI 105PS, which offers fuel economy of 44.1mpg (combined) and CO2 emissions of 149g/km. For diesel fans there's the popular 2.0-litre TDI CR 110PS DPF, which offers figures of 52.3mpg (combined) and CO2 emissions of 140g/km.
The car's exterior can be finished in one of four rich and vibrant colours, with no extra charges for metallic paint. The options are Black Magic pearl effect, Candy White, Brilliant Silver metallic and Steel Grey metallic.
?KODA retailers have a number of accessories on offer which include stainless steel pedals (Pound80), sports exhaust trim (Pound50), and Nextbase Click 9 Lite Duo portable DVD player with twin 9-inch screens (Pound315).
The ?KODA Yeti Urban is on sale from the beginning of April 2012 priced at Pound16,900 OTR for the petrol model and Pound18,330 OTR for the diesel.
