Mumbai: September 10th, 2014: SKODA AUTO India introduces the new Yeti at Rs 18.63 lakhs ex showroom Maharashtra. SKODA’s versatile SUV is a straightforward representative of its segment, a Sports Utility Vehicle with character and simplicity. SKODA has now extensively redesigned the Yeti to adapt the brand’s new design language. The Yeti will be offered with two diesel engines for the Indian market: the 2.0 TDI/81 kW mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a 2.0 TDI/103 kW all-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. The SKODA Yeti is a proud proof that even an SUV can achieve low consumption and emissions. The Yeti will be available across all authorized SKODA showrooms in the country.

“The Yeti is an extremely versatile vehicle and is a great compliment to our product portfolio. True to SKODA’s DNA it is extremely practical, precise, spacious and clever. The driving dynamics in the Yeti are impeccable; it performs well within the city and its off-road performance is overwhelming. The SKODA Yeti makes clever use of space and technology that include both new and proven ‘Simply Clever’ solutions. The Yeti is a car for true automotive enthusiasts and driving aficionados” says Mr Sudhir Rao, Chairman and Managing Director SKODA Auto India. “The refreshed models in our line-up reflect the new phase of SKODA India, promising products that are more practical with timeless appeal, extremely high safety standards and the latest technologies. To complement our ongoing model offensive we will focus on the overall ownership experience with the brand and will continue to retain customer satisfaction as top priority in India. ”

The SKODA Yeti is about safety without compromise. The Yeti was awarded five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test in 2009 for its exemplary safety features. Systems such as ESC including ABS, braking assistant and a robust body design as 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 terms of passive safety, passengers are protected by a system with 6 airbags, five three-point safety belts, and five head restraints.

“The redesigned SKODA Yeti incorporates the new SKODA design language and preserve’s the car’s extreme versatility and multi-functionality. The Yeti has been significantly revamped to give it a more striking and impressive appearance. Behind the new improved look, the Yeti like all SUVs still has the rugged appeal and exudes strength and agility. High safety standards & comfort features along with its off-road capabilities, makes the Yeti a reliable partner in the city and off the road”, added Mr. Pawel Szuflak, Director, Sales, Service and Marketing, SKODA AUTO India.

For the first time the Yeti will also feature cruise control and the KESSY system. Light Assist, a clever feature is added to the redesigned Yeti for the first time.

Refreshed exterior

The redesigned Yeti sports the brand’s new design philosophy, including a strong emphasis on horizontals, precise lines, clean edges, a new logo and a striking interplay of light and shadow. The new design maintains the SUV’s proven, unmistakable basic design and basic proportions: perpendicular surfaces, large wraparound windows, and its uncompromising shape. The SKODA Yeti’s selection of colours has also been expanded. Customers now can choose from a total of 7 different colours: Candy White, Magic Black, Mato Brown, Lava Blue, Brilliant Silver, Corrida Red and Terracotta Orange with multiple combinations of either a silver, white or a black roof.

Interior has been refreshed

The SKODA Yeti's interior have been refreshed with a new 3-spoke multifunctional steering wheel, adjustable for height- and reach. The Yeti’s interior is extremely airy and spacious, with vertical side elements and window panes playing a contributing role. Passengers in the rear sit very comfortably at 1027 millimetres. The low loading edge at 712 milimetres makes both loading in particular and life in general easier. The interior is truly ‘Simply Clever’ with three separate, individually removable and adjustable rear seats; the VarioFlex rear seat system is truly brilliant. The two outside seats can be moved forward or back 150 millimetres for even more legroom. When the centre seat is removed, the outside seats can be adjusted sideways for even more shoulder space, turning the Yeti into a very comfortable four-seater in no time. Furthermore, all three seats have adjustable backrests and can be folded down. Thus, folded down, the middle seat becomes a centre armrest with two cup holders in a jiffy.

Excellent Active Safety

Numerous electronic safety systems enhance the SKODA Yeti’s active safety. The Yeti comes with standard ESC (Electronic Stability Control), which includes ABS (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 swerving or skidding. ABS keeps the wheels from locking during emergency braking or when braking on slippery surfaces. MSR counters the locking action of the driving wheels which can occur when the driver decelerates on a smooth surface. By increasing the braking pressure, 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 spinning on slippery surfaces.

Excellent passive safety 

If an accident is unavoidable despite these comprehensive systems, numerous safety elements are designed to protect all occupants. The SKODA Yeti comes equipped with six airbags: front airbags for driver and front-seat passenger, two side-airbags in front and curtain airbags (front and rear). Upon activation of the airbags, fuel supply and power supply are partially cut, and all doors are unlocked. In case of emergency braking action while travelling at speeds of 60 km/h or above, the car’s hazard warning flashers are automatically activated. Three-point safety belts (height-adjustable in front, with belt-tensioner) keep occupants in place. In a rear-end collision, special head restraints (whiplash-optimised headrests) in front minimise the risk of whiplash for both the driver and the passenger. The head restraints are designed to reduce pendulum movement of the head to a minimum, minimising over-stretching of the vertebrae to prevent injury. To ensure children are transported safely, Isofix child seats can be attached to special anchor points. The two rear outside seats are equipped with the Isofix anchors, and a TopTether attachment is available via a belt attachment from the car’s roof.
