The Skoda Yeti facelift has been grabbed on camera for the first time, prior to an official release scheduled for later this year.

The prototype was spotted in the Czech Republic wearing the skin of the current model, but our sources have informed us the facelift will come with a significant design change which will include a sharper modeled hood and an edgier front grille. It should get just about the same front fascia as the Citigo, Rapid, Octavia and Superb facelift.

We should also expect rectangular headlights and a different front bumper, together with the new rear bumper, LED taillights and a modified license plate holder. The interior cabin will go through some revisions, while the engine lineup could be carried over.

A public reveal should occur in September at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
