  • Three model variants: two-wheel drive 77 and 90TSI variants, 4x4 Outdoor with 103TDI diesel engine
  • New 90TSI engine joins line-up with DSG as standard
  • Rear view camera, KESSY and rear parking sensors standard on all models

Skoda Australia has introduced an updated Yeti to its local model line-up. It offers all the features of the versatile compact SUV that Australian customers have come to know. The new Yeti is offered in both two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive variants, and come with a range of transmissions: the two-wheel drive petrol 77TSI Active, offered in six-speed manual and DSG transmissions, 90TSI Ambition model offered with a standard seven-speed DSG transmission, and the powerful all-wheel drive Outdoor variant, which boasts a 350Nm from its 103TDI diesel engine and standard six-speed DSG transmission.


The updated Yeti is available in two different variants, split between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive ranges. The two-wheel drive Yetis feature a new-look front and rear bumper design, while the four-wheel drive Yeti 4x4 Outdoor maintains a more rugged, off-road look.

The two-wheel drive Yeti range is available in two specifications – the 77TSI Active, which is available with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission; and the 90TSI Ambition, which comes equipped with a seven-speed DSG transmission as standard.

The flagship model of the Yeti range, the 4x4 Outdoor variant, is equipped with a 2.0-litre 103TDI engine, paired with a six-speed DSG as standard. A significant difference between the two types of Yeti variants are the front and rear bumpers, underside guard, side mouldings and door sills, which are either in the body colour or, as with the Yeti 4x4 Outdoor variation, remain in black plastic. The Skoda Yeti Outdoor also features standard silver exterior rear-view mirrors.

There is no diesel engine option for the front-wheel drive models and there is no petrol engine for the all-wheel drive model.

Top-level safety

The Skoda Yeti offers occupant safety without compromise. This compact SUV was awarded five stars in the EuroNCAP crash test in 2009 for its safety features. The updated ŠKODA Yeti provides the same degree of safety as its predecessor, featuring systems such as ESC including ABS, braking assistant and a robust body design. In terms of passive safety, passengers are protected by a system consisting of seven airbags, five three-point safety belts, and five head restraints. (copyright image)

Raising the bar even higher in the new Yeti range, Skoda Australia is offering unprecedented levels of standard equipment across the entire model line-up. Adding a combination of function, convenience and safety, some of the key features now standard in the new Yeti include a five-inch Amundsen touch screen audio unit, rear parking sensors, Advanced Keyless Entry including Smart Start (KESSY) and a rear view camera.
