Only the Outdoor package is available in India.

The Skoda Yeti facelift is here to have another attempt at the premium SUV segment, brushing shoulders with much bigger vehicles like the Toyota Fortuner. Here is a visual comparison of the 2014 Yeti and the pre-facelift version. While there are two visual packages namely ‘Outdoor’ and ‘Style’, only the former is available in India.

The 2014 Skoda Yeti omits the circular foglamps.

The instantly noticeable change when viewed head on is the absence of large circular foglamps that gave the old car its unique appeal.

Contrast roof option and new alloy wheel design would be the noticeable changes to the side profile of the facelift.

Instead, Skoda designers opted for angular headlamps and a revised grille both of which subscribe to the latest family identity. The totally reprofiled bumper houses rectangular foglamps at the conventional location.
