Skoda India is all set to launch the facelifted version of its flagship SUV, Yeti in the country in July. First unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Yeti facelift made its Indian debut at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo. The new Skoda Yeti gets updates both inside and outside, which makes it look refreshing.
The new Skoda Yeti gets a visual makeover; however, the mechanics of the car remains unchanged. It now sports new headlamps with integrated xenons and LED daytime running lamps. This model comes with a new grille, just like Superb sedan, offering the new Skoda family look, while the bumpers have also received some upgrades. The rugged version of the Yeti gets plastic cladding on the bumpers and sides, while the flared wheel arches have been fitted to a new set of 16-inch alloys. Inside the cabin, the new Skoda Yeti gets new three-spoke steering wheel. The vehicle is also equipped with tyre pressure monitoring system, cruise control along with keyless entry and start, electrically adjustable driver seat and other features.
The new Skoda Yeti facelift will come with two diesel engine options. A 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine that churns out a maximum power output of 110PS. Power is transmitted to front wheels via a five-speed manual transmission. The other version will be an all-wheel drive, which will be powered by a 2.0-litre TDI plant that produces 140PS of top power. This engine will be paired to a six-speed manual transmission gearbox.
