Škoda Auto will present the new Yeti at this year's Motor Show in Geneva, Switzerland. The new model
is based on the design study of the same name that was shown in 2005. Yeti is designed for both urban
and leisure driving and features state-of-the-art technology that ensures excellent behaviour on the
road and great riding qualities off-road. It is a smart and practical solution for customers who want
a compact car that is robust, safe and has universal appeal.
Additionally, the Octavia GreenLine will make its world premiere in Geneva. The newest member of the
Skoda family of environmentally-oriented cars, it has fuel consumption of 4.4L/100 km and CO2 emissions
level of just 116 grammes/kilometre while retaining great drive qualities. Octavia GreenLine engines
feature the latest enhancements to the range - downsizing and common rail (CR) technology. A brand-new
1.6 TDI CR engine, delivering 77 kW, provides the driver with a maximum torque of 250 Nm at 1,900 rpm
and has a diesel particulate filter (DPF) as standard.
The next model in the Scout series will also be introduced on the Skoda stand – the Fabia Scout. In
addition the Fabia S2000 rally car will be on display, having recently proved successful at the Monte
Carlo Rally where it laid the foundations of a new era for Škoda motor sport.
Škoda Auto is also going to present the brand’s EMO concepts on the stand. These design studies are
oriented toward an emotional expression of the brand and its products, featuring Škoda’s current design
style and highlighting not only functionality, but also the enjoyment of life and a dynamic style. The
studies, focusing both on the vehicles’ interior and exterior, demonstrate the potential and craft of
Skoda’s design team.
The Škoda stand will be located in Hall 2, stand 2160. The Geneva Motor Show will be held from 5th
March to 15th March, 2009.
