Following yesterday's leak, Skoda has revealed the 2014 Yeti facelift which will premiere next month at IAA in Frankfurt.
The revised Yeti looks more refined than the outgoing model and has adopted the now familiar Skoda front fascia with the corporate grille, a sportier front bumper and bi-xenon headlights with LED DRLs. The hood also looks more appealing, while at the back we notice slightly modified taillights and more prominent badging on the tailgate.
Skoda is offering two styling versions of the 2014 Yeti, the white one is destined for the city while the green one has an off-road look thanks to its black bumpers, side mouldings, underride guard and door sills which on the city version are painted in the same color as the rest of the body. Both versions have a ground clearance of 180mm.
It's the first Skoda to be offered with an optional rear-view camera and provides a cargo capacity of 405 liters with the rear seats up or 1,760 liters once you fold them down. Other changes include a double-sided floor covering in the boot, detachable LED light in the boot and KESSY start system.
The 2014 Yeti is available with a choice of three gasoline and four diesel engines, with output ranging from 105 HP (77 kW) in the 1.2 TSI to 170 HP (125 kW) in the 2.0 TDI. Depending on engine choice, front- or all-wheel drive system is available, along with six-speed manual or six- and seven-speed DSG.
The most frugal version is the GreenLine equipped with a 1.6 TDI 105 HP (77 kW) in the front-wheel drive guise with a manual transmission which consumes only 4.6 liters / 100 km (51.1 mpg US or 61.4 mpg UK) and has CO2 emissions of only 119 g/km.
