The Skoda Yeti facelift premiered globally at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, featuring a new exterior design, interior and feature updates, in ‘Outdoor’ and ‘Style’ variants.

The five-seat SUV gets refreshed front and rear sections and would be launched in the ‘Outdoor’ version in India. Stylists have refreshed the bumpers, intakes, under-ride protection, door mouldings, sills giving them a black lacquered finish.

The interior is minimally different, getting Skoda’s new 3-spoke steering wheel, new seat fabrics and dashboard trim.
