First renderings of the 2017 Skoda Yeti has been unveiled by X-Tomi Designs. The all new Yeti is set to adopt the new design language set for Skoda’s SUV/Crossover range.
The present Skoda Yeti is finally ready to get replaced with the introduction of an all new Yeti which is set to be unveiled in 2017. The new design of the 2017 Yeti will take on a rather more conventional route in its design, as compared to the current version. The new Yeti will adopt the new family design of Skoda which was previewed at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show with the Skoda VisionS Concept.
The Yeti is set to be second in line to the Skoda Kodiaq to incorporate the new family design of Skoda for their SUV/Crossover range. Design wise, the new Yeti will be a blend of its own Skoda Kodiaq and its sister brand Volkswagen’s Tiguan. The mechanical aspect though of the next-gen Yeti is said to be closely similar to that of the VW Tiguan and the SEAT Ateca of Spain.
The all-new Yeti is based on Volkswagen’s MQB platform. It is set to get a range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engine versions, with displacements ranging from 1.0 – 2.0 litres. These engines will be mated to either a 6-speed manual or the 7-speed dual clutch automatic. The all new Yeti can be expected to get the front wheel drive train as standards, while the all-wheel drive train might be optional for certain models.
The current range of Yeti costs between 21.70 – 23.5 Lakhs (Ex-showroom, New Delhi), which will be replaced in 2017, with the launch of the all new Skoda Yeti. Though the prices have not been announced, we expect the prices of the 2017 model to also be somewhere in the same range.
