ŠKODA’s versatile SUV is a straightforward representative of its segment, a Sports Utility Vehicle with character and simplicity. ŠKODA has now extensively redesigned the Yeti to adapt the brand’s new design language.
The Yeti will be offered with two diesel engines in the Indian market: the 2.0 TDI/81 kW mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a 2.0 TDI/103 kWall-wheel drive fitted as standard mated to a manual six-speed gearbox. The high-pressure direct injection technology system offers optimum performance with great mileage of 17.72*Kmpl in the 2 wheel drive 81 kW engine and 17.67* kmpl in the 103 kW all-wheel drive versions. TheŠKODA Yeti is a proud proof that even an SUV can achieve low consumption and emissions.The Yeti will be available across all authorized ŠKODA showrooms in the country.
The Yeti was awarded five starsin the Euro NCAP crash test in 2009 for its exemplary safety features.Systems such as ESC including ABS, braking assistant and a robust body designas well as a state-of-the-art chassis guarantee optimum active safety. Off-road,the car’s smart all-wheel-drive contributes to safe driving behaviour. In termsof passive safety, passengers are protected by a system with 6 airbags, five three-point safety belts, and five head restraints.
Numerous electronic safety systems enhance the ŠKODA Yeti’s active safety. The Yeti comes with standard ESC (Electronic Stability Control), which includesABS (Antilock Braking System), EBC (Engine Braking Control), braking assistant, ASR(Anti-Slip Regulation) and EDL (Electronic Differential Lock).ESC recognises critical driving situations and prevents the vehicle from swervingor skidding. ABS keeps the wheels from locking during emergency braking or whenbraking on slippery surfaces. MSR counters the locking action of the driving wheels whichcan occur when the driver decelerates on a smooth surface. By increasing the brakingpressure, the braking assistant helps drivers in emergency braking situations. This can lead to a significant reduction in braking distance.The ASR ensures smooth starting and acceleration without the wheels spinningon slippery surfaces.
The ŠKODA Yeti is available withelectronic tyre pressure monitoring.This system warns the driver about varying tyre pressure at all times.The hill-hold control assistant helps drivers start uphill safely. The systemactivates itself on inclines of five percent or more and ensures easy and safe uphillstarting without the use of the hand brake. The system keeps the car from rollingbackwards or stalling. For the ŠKODA Yeti all-wheel drive, a downhill assistant is available.State-of-the-art engine management uses engine braking action to enable in safeand controlled downhill driving. The downhill assistant easily and safely managesextreme downhill sections by keeping the driving speed at a constant rate, thus assistingthe driver.
