The Yeti is an important car for Skoda India. Firstly, it is only Skoda in India that can boast of some off roading credentials. Also, in a market space where an average SUV buyers isn’t really spoilt for choice, the Yeti is the only option to have a link with the Germans! Already in the second half of its career, the Yeti has lost some of its sheen. No surprise then that Skoda India has decided to bring the updated Skoda Yeti facelift to our shores and give its fast aging crossover a new lease of life. The Skoda Yeti facelift India launch is scheduled for September 10 and here we’ve got some details on the about to be introduced vehicle.
The Skoda Yeti facelift made its India debut at this year’s Auto Expo and the upcoming car comes with many visual upgrades that set it apart from the current model. The Yeti facelift gets new headlamps that are more conventionally shaped and make the front end more butch. The car also gets a wider grille and a new bumper. Other visual changes include new alloy wheels, new side mouldings and updated LED taillamps. Changes on the inside are restricted to a change of seat covers and a new steering wheel. The Yeti facelift will come with some additional features, which could lead to an increase in the prices. The new Yeti will be available only in the Elegance trim only and will continue to be powered by the current model’s engines. The two wheel drive option will be available in the 110 PS state of tune and with a five speed manual gearbox. The four wheel drive option will enjoy a higher power of 140 PS and a six speed manual gearbox.
