Yeti isn’t due on sale in the UK until September 17, but with such keen interest already building, Škoda’s newest, and fifth, model has today had its pricing revealed.
The base model Yeti, to be known as the Yeti E, will start at just £13,750.00 (A$27,880.00) and will lead a range that features four trim levels, five engine choices, two transmission selections plus the advantage of either front- or four-wheel drive. DSG transmission will be available with the 1.2 TSI (petrol) engine.
The entry-level Yeti E is available in two-wheel drive, with either a 1.2 TSI (petrol) or the 2.0 TDI (diesel) engine and includes features such as air conditioning; remote central locking; driver and passenger front side and curtain airbags; single CD tuner; 16-inch wheels; and front electric windows.
Step up a notch to the Yeti S and add the availability of either two- or four-wheel drive with a choice of four engines and standard features that include 16-inch alloy wheels; front fog lights; rear electric windows; and driver’s knee airbag above Yeti E specification.
Third in line is Yeti SE which is available with the same engine and drive-line specification as the Yeti S but picks up dual-zone climate control; cruise control; integrated touchscreen six CD tuner; acoustic rear parking sensors; and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Although Australian specification and timing has not yet been locked in we’re sure to see at least two models reach our shores by mid-2010 which may even include the range-topping Yeti Elegance which starts at £17,600.00 (A$35,200.00).
Yeti Elegance is available with a choice of five engines – including the 2.0 TDI (diesel) and includes additional equipment over Yeti SE that includes an off-road button with the 4WD transmission; ESP; heated front seat; bi-xenon headlights with cornering function; full leather upholstery; and rain sensing wipers.
