For India, Skoda will only sell the ‘Outdoor’ variant of the Yeti while Europe has the option of ‘Style’.
Inside, there’s a new 3-spoke steering wheel and mildly updated trims for the dashboard and seats. Mechanically however, the Yeti continues to be seen with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder TDI engine which produces 110 PS (108.45 bhp) or 140 PS (138 bhp). The 110 PS variant makes 250 Nm of torque and is a front wheel drive only whereas the more powerful variant churns out 320 Nm of torque and gets AWD. Also, the 140 PS comes with a 6-speed manual transmission where the 110 PS makes do with a 5-speed unit.
