The SUV is being offered with a choice of two petrol engines and three diesel are on offer: the entry entry unit (front wheel drive), a petrol engine with four cylinders and 1.2 litre capacity, delivers 103 hp, while the top of the line is a 2.0l TDI CR with 167 hp.

The Yeti is very well equipped for load lugging, too. The luggage compartment volume is flexible; up to 1760 litres is available by removing the rear seats. A luggage cover and net as well as lashing rings are available to further secure the load. As the Yeti is born of a brand which offers clever automobile concepts as its core competence, it is designed with a highly flexible luggage system.

Compact, attractively styled and full of surprises: Škoda Auto will celebrate the extension of its model range to five with the introduction of Yeti at Geneva. The 4.2 metre long, five-door vehicle bears the well-known features of the brand. An impressive front end with a ribbed grille and friendly looking headlamps confidently demonstrate Yeti’s relationship with the Škoda family. Sturdy flanks and distinct wings give Yeti its robust and solid look on 17 inch wheels, without coming across as bulky and heavy.

The Yeti is a clever response by Škoda Auto to the increasingly important ecological issues in the popular and growing SUV class. Škoda has met the demands for a cleanly styled body, a high seat position and versatile operating options with a design, which despite its robustness, exudes lightness rather than bulky shapes. The Yeti also meets the needs for environmental care, luggage space, safety and great road holding.

A carefully balanced running gear concept allows the driver to implement what the design implies: fun and dynamic to drive. The Yeti distinguishes itself with very agile handling coupled with high safety reserves. As well as the stylish exterior of the Yeti, the driver and passengers feel safe.

This impression is reinforced, among other things, by the turbo-charged and frugal engines. Two petrol engines and three diesel are on offer: The entry unit (front wheel drive), a petrol engine with four cylinders and 1.2 litre capacity, delivers 77 kW thanks to a power-providing turbo charger (105 PS). The fuel consumption stays within tight limits.

The Yeti is a clever compact SUV that is bound to create a stir in this segment. Excellent handling characteristics and high agility are features of all trims. The 4x4 variants are also characterised by outstanding off-road suitability and excellent traction. These, coupled with superb emission values and low fuel consumption meet the needs for a socially acceptable extension of the SUV class.

Yeti is really quite impressive, I love the luggage compartment of it even the load lugging that is very well equipped, and I’m not agree with them that this car is ugly but yes, the style and design of this car is very common and simple.

The Yeti is very well equipped for load lugging, too. The luggage compartment is much flexible that it could hold up to 1760 liters if the rear seats will be removed.

I know there’s no sense in trying to reply with an intelligent comment, so I won’t, but I’ll just say that you really are an embarrassment to the people who drive BMW’s, and that’s saying a lot.

Looks ugly but it will definitely out run and out perform a small suv, i’ve already seen it’s video, and i can say that it performs well specially in off road.

the Yeti shares its platform with many Volkswagen Group small cars sold around the world and is offered overseas in front- and four-wheel-drive variants.
