Skoda Australia has added a third member to its Yeti family this week: the Skoda Yeti 112TSI.

The Yeti 112TSI joins the existing model line-up comprising the two-wheel-drive Yeti 77TSI and four-wheel-drive Yeti 103TDI.

It’s the most powerful version of the Skoda Yeti to be launched in Australia, powered by a 1.8-litre turbocharged petrol engine developing (as the nameplate suggests) 112kW of power and 250Nm of torque from 1500-4200rpm. The Yeti 112TSI accelerates from 0-100km/h in 8.4 seconds and has a top speed of 200km/h.

The standard transmission is a six-speed manual, while buyers can also choose the optional six-speed DSG.

The newest Skoda Yeti benefits from the same 4×4 system at its 103TDI sibling, using a fourth-generation Haldex clutch, which is capable of transferring up to 90 per cent of torque to the rear wheels and ensures maximum grip in a variety of roads and conditions.

Not quite as fuel efficient as the Yeti 103TDI (6.2L/100km for DSG or 6.7L/100km for manual ‘box), the higher output 112TSI manages 8.2L/100km in DSG guise, or 8.4L/100km with the six-speed manual transmission.

CarAdvice is at the local launch of the Skoda Yeti 118TSI and will post a full first-drive review soon. Stay tuned.
