Skoda is planning to expand and absolutely overhaul its SUV lineup. Following on from the seven-seat Kodiaq due later in 2016 might be a replacement for the sturdy-selling Yeti crossover. In a departure from the contemporary model, that’s styled someplace among a 4×4 and a small van, the new version gets a miles greater traditional crossover form. This’ll see the waistline (the component between the facet home windows and the bodywork) raised for a greater sporty appearance and the present day vertical roofline changed for a more rakish, sloping one.
On the front, count on angular LED headlights just like the ones found at the vision S concept to take a seat both facet of the Skoda own family chrome grille. A clamshell bonnet predicted to appear on the Kodiaq ought to seem too, in conjunction with chunky SUV-stimulated wheel arches to feature some visual clout to the sides.
New Skoda Yeti Interior
With dimensions similar to the Ateca, we’d assume the new Yeti to be extra practical than the present day model. Boot space must growth from 416 litres towards the SEAT’s 510. It’ll be an impressive feat to pinnacle the cutting-edge model’s big reserves of headroom, however an extended wheelbase must offer passengers extra area for his or her legs, both front and rear.
New Skoda Yeti Engines
A ramification of petrol and diesel engines taken from across the Volkswagen institution will power the brand new Yeti. entry-level petrols will get a 1.0-litre turbocharged engine producing 113hp and 148lb toes of torque. A more powerful 1.4-litre turbo will function, both as a standalone unit and as a part of a petrol/electric powered hybrid. This is predicted to be the same system used to electricity the VW Passat GTE and should produce around 215hp but return nearly 150mpg.
More conventional diesels are likely to make up the bulk of Yeti income. A 1.6-litre unit capable of round 66mpg will kick off the variety, whilst versions of a 2.0-litre unit – the most amazing getting fashionable four-wheel drive – should make the Yeti a really perfect tow automobile candidate.
New Skoda Yeti Prices and Release Date
The modern Yeti begins from £17,000 and, thinking about the SEAT Ateca on which it’s based totally will fee round £18,000, we don’t count on the brand new car model to differ significantly from the car it replaces. Skoda is focused on bringing the bigger Kodiaq to market first so we’ll all need to wait a touch longer for the brand new Yeti. We expect the auto will be released sometime in early 2018.
