Skoda India has held the Indian premiere of the 2014 Yeti facelift at the Auto Expo. The refreshed Yeti will be launched in the second half of this year, confirms Skoda.
Internationally available in two designs - Outdoor and Style - the version for India will come in the Outdoor body style only. The bumpers, air-intakes, under-ride protection, side moldings and door sills are seen in a black lacquered plastic on this model. The refreshed Yeti gets LED daytime running lights, bi-xenon headlights, newly designed 16-inch alloy wheels and cruise control as standard.
When it is launched later this year, the Yeti will continue to be offered with the 2.0-liter diesel engine, available in two power states of 110 PS and 140 PS. The 110 PS version churns out 250 Nm of torque, while the higher power variant makes 320 Nm of torque.
The base engine variant is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission, which sends the drive to the front wheels only, while the higher variant gets a 6-speed manual transmission and an all wheel drive system.
