The carmaker from Mlada Boleslav has announced its significantly refreshed Skoda Yeti model has rolled off the line on 11 November, 2013. The updated compact SUV is assembled at the Kvasiny, where 4,500 employees work on this model, the Superb and the Roomster.
Skoda describes what they've done to rejuvenate the Yeti as making two models from one, the more stylish City model and the adventure-oriented Outdoor.

Introduced in 2009, the Yeti became one of their most successful models. In total over 288,700 have been sold as of the end of October. The company sold 87,400 units in 2012, an increase of 24% over the previous year.

The Yeti is currently one of the best-selling A-class SUVs in the European Union with a market share of 4.1%. It's also locally made in Russia and China. At the end of 2013, Skoda has pledged a long wheelbase version of the SUV for that market.

“2013 is Skoda year of new models,” says Skoda Board Member for Production Michael Oeljeklaus. “The successful start of production for the Yeti is the result of another outstanding team performance.”
