SKODA's Compact SUV for 2013 is available in a city look design as well as an off-road look for trips in the country. Bumpers, under-ride guard, side mouldings and door sills are either in the body colour or, as with the SKODA Yeti outdoor version, remain in black plastic. The new fronts of both vehicles are now horizontally more accentuated and feature a grille and redesigned headlights. The new Yeti models have got an all-new fresh interior - with new 3-spoke steering wheels in seven variations, new fabrics and patterns for the seat covers as well as new decorative trims on the dashboard. The Yeti is the brand's first model with Optical Parking Assistant, an optional rear-view camera. This is the first time that the SKODA Yeti will feature the latest generation of the automatic parking assistant. The new system enables the Yeti to automatically reverse and parallel park and even pull out. The new SKODA Yeti features the automatic lock and start system for the first time. The revised SKODA Yeti has also received four new Simply Clever solutions. The double-sided floor covering in the boot is new. There is also a detachable LED light in the boot, the vest holder under the driver's seat and the waste container in the side door of the Yeti. The SKODA Yeti's VarioFlex rear seat system, offering unique interior versatility. The three rear seats can be individually folded or removed. The outer seats can be shifted across with the middle seat removed. In an instant, the Yeti is transformed from a five to a four seater, making more space for the rear passengers. There are also the carried-over features like the fold-down backrest of the passenger seat, folding tables on the backs of the front seats, various storage compartments and practical bottle holders. Functionality is a top priority in the boot, featuring among other things, fastening points and fold-down hooks. Generous space is once again confirmed in the Yeti. In no other compact SUV do the rear passengers have as much headroom as in the SKODA Yeti - 1027 millimetres. The boot capacity is at least 405 litres. Taking all the rear seats out increases the volume to a fantastic 1,760 litres. There is a selection of four diesel and three petrol engines for the all-new SKODA Yeti - all turbocharged and with direct injection. The performance spectrum ranges from the 1.2 TSI with 77 kW and 105 hp to the 2.0 TDI with 125 kW/170 hp. The fifth generation front or all-wheel drive with Haldex coupling is fitted depending on the engine specs. With an automatic transmission, the SKODA Yeti exclusively uses the modern six or seven-speed dual clutch transmission (DSG). The GreenLine version 1.6 TDI/77kW, with front wheel drive and a manual gearbox, produces CO2 emissions of just 119 g/km. That corresponds to a consumption of 4.6 litres of diesel per 100 km (61 MPG). Additionally, there are three Green tec engine variants: the 1.4 TSI/90 kW, 2.0 TDI/103 kW with manual six-speed gearbox, and 1.6 TDI/77 kW with seven-speed DSG. The Green tec package includes the Start-Stop System, brake energy recovery (recuperation) and low rolling resistance tyres.
