The Skoda Yeti was introduced at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show and, believe it or not, soon became a successful model on the European market. Since then, however, an abundance of new competitors have joined the small-SUV market, so the Yeti needs a redesign to keep up pace. These latest spy shots are the first images of that exact redesign.
The prototype caught testing has only been camouflaged at the front and rear meaning that just these two parts will be redesigned. Up front, the facelift Yeti will receive a new front bumper with bigger air intakes for a more masculine look. The chrome bar on top of the grille will also be changed and will get a look similar to the one previewed by the Concept Mission L, which is same one that will be used for the upcoming Skoda Rapid. The graphics on the headlights look as if they will get some changes too. At the rear, there will be a new, redesigned bumper and new rear light graphics.
As far as power goes, there have been some new engines in the Skoda family lately, so some of the new engines will more than likely find their way under the hood of the facelift Yeti.
Expect to see the new Skoda Yeti launched in September at the 2012 Paris Auto Show.
