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.
