Skoda Yeti facelift revealed

 Here are the first official pictures of the updated Skoda Yeti.

As you can see, the Yeti gets a much-required minor styling update. The front styling now follows the design language seen in newer Skoda models such as the international-market Rapid, the new Octavia and the updated Superb. The front is now more angular, featuring a new-style signature Skoda grille with the logo that recently made its debut in India with the unveiling of the new Octavia. Also new are the square-ish headlamps, and gone are those chunky, round fog lamps. These have been replaced by conventional-looking units shaped like those on the new Octavia.

The hood is also all-new, as are the front bumper and chin, which are now re-profiled with straighter lines that go well with the new signature Skoda grille and headlamp combo.
 Skoda will sell the updated Yeti in two variants, namely the the Yeti City and the Yeti Outdoor.

In the City version, Skoda has got rid of the rugged-looking black plastic bits on the Yeti in favour of body-coloured elements – this gives the updated Yeti a softer and more upmarket look. The Outdoor variant will be offered with black plastic bits on the exterior for a more rugged look.

Moving on to the sides, the overall profile remains the same, but gets a smoother appearance. The alloy wheels also get new designs.

Rear styling sees updates in the form of the trunk-lid getting the new triangular kinks which are also seen on the Indian-market Skoda Rapid. The tail-lights are re-profiled and now come with familiar C-shape inserts which could house LED units.  Additional styling update on the rear includes a smoothened bumper with re-styled reflectors.

Interior updates include a new steering wheel, and minor revisions to the seat fabric and shades.  There is no news on any mechanical update and the Yeti is expected to continue with the same engine lineup as earlier.

Skoda will showcase the updated Yeti at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.
