Skoda to Launch New Yeti Variants
“In the future, I think there’s enough space in this class for cars that are bigger and smaller than the Yeti. It’s an important segment for us because this model has been very successful," Dr Eckhard Scholz, Skoda board member in charge of technical development, was quoted as saying by the aforementioned source.
Skoda Yeti is currently offered on the Old Continent with a total of five engines, two gasoline and three diesel, producing between 103 and 167 horsepower. The 1.2-liter TSI with front-wheel drive is the smallest displacement-engine in the lineup, followed by the 2.0-liter TDI CR DPF unit that comes with either front wheel drive or 4x4. The top of the range engine is the 2.0-liter TDI CR DPF all-wheel drive that produces 167 horsepower.
Some of the existing engines will make it to new versions as well, but all of them will undergo extensive modifications to be able to return increase mileage figures. The first Yeti variations are scheduled to reach the market in 2012, so we'll keep you up to date on the topic.
