Czech auto-maker Skoda is reportedly set to bring its refreshed Yeti facelift to India in July 2014.
The Yeti facelift, which made its Indian debut at 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, will hit the domestic market in July this year, reported Auto Economic Times. The Skoda Yeti, an SUV which has been on Indian roads since 2010 has sold only 4,500 units of vehicles in the country as of now.
Although the SUV was stylish in its design and received good reviews from the auto enthusiasts across the globe, the car failed to attract the crowd in the sub-continent market due to various reasons including the exorbitant pricing of the car.
Now the company is gearing up to launch the overhauled version of Yeti in the country to give a strong competition to the rivals. The new Yeti Facelift is stylish in its design and hosts attractive features.
On the exterior, it flaunts completely redesigned looks and wears new headlamp, butterfly grille and revamped tail lights. The car displays the new logo of Skoda and comes with bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights.
The interior of the car remains more or less the same, however, minor tweaks are expected. On the mechanical front, the Yeti facelift will come with the same 2.0 litre diesel engine, which is featured in the current Skoda Yeti and is likely to continue to have two states of tune – 110 PS at 4,200 rpm and 140 PS at 4,200 rpm. As of now, Yeti is available only with manual gearbox, but the report suggests that the new Yeti facelift might also get DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox).
Currently, Skoda Yeti is priced in the range of ₹15.19 lakh to ₹18.91 lakh. Rumours are rife that the upcoming version of Yeti SUV is also likely to carry the same price range.
