Skoda Yeti crossover 4×4 officially launched in the UAE
Skoda have brought to the UAE market their first ever SUV, the Yeti. It is a compact five-door five-seater crossover.
The Yeti comes equipped with the VW group’s turbocharged 160 hp 1.8-litre 4-cylinder engine which is coupled to a 6-speed “DSG” dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The Skoda Yeti has been awarded a 5-star safety rating by the Euro NCAP and scored 92% adult occupant protection in the frontal and side crash tests. The car also comes with ABS, brake assist, Anti-Slip Regulation and an electronic differential lock for the all-wheel-drive system.
Skoda says the required interval for servicing is a very convenient 15,000 km. There will be two models available at the time of introduction and a 3-year unlimited mileage warranty comes standard.
Jeremy Clarkson may have declared the Skoda Yeti 1.8-litre to be ‘possibly the best car in the world’, but here in the Middle East, we have to wait for the final word.
