The facelift aligns the Skoda Yeti’s styling with firm's new design language – as seen on the its Rapid and Octavia models – revealing a more modern, conservative approach for the Czech carmaker.

First published by Russian website Autowp, the leaked pictures show the 2014 Yeti will feature a more aggressive front bumper design, as well as a new grille, restyled bonnet and refreshed tail-lights.

It also looks to have replaced the original car’s black plastic lower-body cladding with body coloured items and the existing black roof rails with silver versions.

The Yeti’s headlights seem to have undergone the most change, ditching the pre-facelifted car’s twin headlight arrangement for a sleek, single unit design.

One thing that hasn’t changed is the Yeti’s eccentric pillar treatment, with only the B-pillars being body coloured.

Inside, the car reveals few changes. There are new trim options and a revised steering wheel, but all is on par with standard Volkswagen Group fare.

The first-generation Skoda Yeti made its debut at the 2009 Geneva motor show.
