SKODA is launching a limited-edition
version of its critically acclaimed Yeti compact SUV. Called the Yeti
Urban, it is based on the already highly popular SE trim, but features
up to £2,450 worth of extra equipment at no extra cost when compared to
The KODA Yeti compact SUV has been a
huge sale success since it was launched in 2009 - more than 8,800 have
been registered in the UK.
It won 12 independent product awards
along the way, and charmed UK car buyers with its on-road performance,
family orientated practicality and rugged styling. This new model -
restricted to just 750 cars - will extend that appeal to younger and
more style-conscious UK buyers.
The Yeti Urban also sets a new
benchmark for technology in KODA cars. It's the first model to be sold
in the UK with DAB digital radio as standard. Over and above SE trim,
Yeti Urban includes Amundsen+ satellite navigation, Bluetooth
connectivity and a multi-function steering wheel to control the audio
system and telephone.
Additional design features include
stunning 17-inch black-and-chrome 'Matterhorn' alloys, wheel arch
extensions, chrome side strips, silver door mirror caps, silver roof
rails and stylish eye-catching roof stripes. Inside, customers have the
choice of red or black sports seats and sunset glass in the rear.
The Yeti Urban is available in
two-wheel-drive with manual transmission only, and comes with a choice
of two engines. The petrol option is the frugal 1.2-litre TSI 105PS,
which offers fuel economy of 44.1mpg (combined) and CO2 emissions of
149g/km. For diesel fans there's the popular 2.0-litre TDI CR 110PS DPF,
which offers figures of 52.3mpg (combined) and CO2 emissions of 140g/km.
The car's exterior can be finished in
one of four rich and vibrant colours, with no extra charges for metallic
paint. The options are Black Magic pearl effect, Candy White, Brilliant
Silver metallic and Steel Grey metallic.
KODA retailers have a number of
accessories on offer which include stainless steel pedals (£80), sports
exhaust trim (£50), and Nextbase Click 9 Lite Duo portable DVD player
with twin 9-inch screens (£315).
The KODA Yeti Urban is on sale from
the beginning of April 2012 priced at £16,900 OTR for the petrol model
and £18,330 OTR for the diesel.
