2018 Skoda Yeti confirmed, will get VisionS design cues – Report


Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!

Will be launched in the UK in 2018.

Revealing the Skoda VisionS concept last month, Skoda announced that the concept previews the design language of its future SUV models.

Auto Express has published speculative renderings of the next-gen Skoda Yeti with the design derived from the VisionS concept. There’s some inspiration from the Seat Ateca as well, for the five-seat SUV which will touch down at UK dealers sometime in 2018.

The five-seat 2018 Skoda Yeti will be based on the MQB platform.

Affirming the next-gen Yeti’s existence and speaking on its character, Mr. Maier said: “It is not a surprise that there will be a successor for the Yeti. This is already in development; it looks beautiful and perfectly fits to the brand.”

As seen in the rendering, the Skoda Yeti will adopt a more traditional design in its next generation. Also being based on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform, the all-new Skoda Yeti will share much of its DNA with the Seat Ateca and second generation VW Tiguan. The 2018 Skoda Yeti is already under development, Skoda CEO Bernhard Maier told the publication.

Confirming that the design will be derived from the VisionS concept, Mr. Maier said: “We have asked our customers about the design, and one thing is clear: the new design language for our SUVs will also apply to the new Yeti.”

The next-gen Skoda Yeti is expected to be offered with a variety of petrol and diesel engines with displacements ranging from 1.0- to 2.0-litre, including a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit. A hybrid powertrain will also likely be offered. “Hybrids are something we are discussing for all of our product line-up”, Mr. Maier said.

Front-wheel drive drivetrain configuration will be standard, but four-wheel drive system will be offered moving up the range.
