The famous Czech car manufacturer is all set to launch its 2018 Skoda Yeti. The new generation of the crossover won’t have anything in common with the predecessor. Judging by the spy shots, it will change its distinctive look in favor of a sleeker design. Of course, since it’s a part of VW’s lineup, Skoda’s crossover will ride on the MQB platform.
The carmaker will add on the performance, so the SUV is going to be super agile and versatile in nature. As many customers have complained of its fragile look and bad transmission system, Skoda will pay the biggest attention to these parts. However, 2018 Yeti will host the complete redesign, so let’s see what’s also changed:
2018 Skoda Yeti: Engines and Transmissions
Under the hood, the 2018 Skoda Yeti is also going to get better options compared to the previous generation. It is expected that car will come 1.0-liter and 1.4-liter petrol engines. As for the diesel options, this vehicle will have 2.0-liter and 1.6-liter options for its customers. Regarding power generation, no information is still available. In addition to these engines, there is also an option for a hybrid driving force. All of these engines will be paired with a 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox. The most efficient petrol variants can provide a mileage of 57 mpg on an average and the diesel engine of the SUV can provide an mpg of 64. Except for the aforementioned units, the new generation Yeti will most likely get a one more potent option. As we have heard, this should be a 2.0-liter petrol mill with around 200 horsepower.
Price Range and Availability
The 2018 Skoda Yeti is going to be available in the showroom from the first quarter of 2018, and the price will fluctuate from $18,000 to $26,478. Of course, the full loaded model with the most potent engine might go up to $30K.
Exterior and interior Changes
As earlier mentioned there will be a number of changes in this upcoming 2018 Skoda Yeti. Both the interior and exterior is going to switch to a great extent. From the outside, the new car will get LED projector headlamps, while the front bumpers will get new cuts and cues to give a muscular look to this car. Side skirts will be more aggressive without any doubt, while the new fogs should be redesigned as well. Bonnet will get a long stretch curve that runs toward the logo and mixes with the front grille.
Like the exterior, there will be many changes in the interior too. One of the prominent changes inside is more space, especially the cargo space. Rear seats will have a 40/60 configuration, which will additionally boost the truck. Leather finish and chrome garnishing will be there to give a premium feel. Hard plastics will also be there, but they will be rubberized to give a soft feeling. All seats will feature lumbar support, while an 8-inch infotainment system is all set to find its place for the first time.
