Škoda announces arrival of 2014 Yeti

The Škoda Yeti has been a hugely popular model since it first appeared on the Irish market four years ago and more than 281,000 have been sold worldwide. Arriving in time for the 141 plate, the 2014 Yeti features a host of new upgrades.

Škoda Ireland has confirmed December 2 as the launch date of the new Škoda Yeti in dealerships nationwide with prices from €24,490. The new Yeti has been improved to make it even more attractive, in terms of design, technology and functionality. One of the most notable changes is the addition of a new rugged version called the Outdoor. The Outdoor version includes a full length panoramic retractable sunroof as standard and new exterior aluminium design features including skirts, mirror covers, roof bars and spoilers on the front and rear that give the Yeti a more off-road style.

The Škoda Yeti has a hugely loyal fan-base, with many repeat customers and with this in mind, Škoda hasn’t strayed too far from the tried and trusted recipe which has brought the model such great success. In terms of styling the Yeti gains the new Škoda family ‘face’ and features a new grille, new headlights and rectangular, lower positioned front fog lamps for better visibility. At the rear there are sharpened rear LED lights and new tailgate design elements. A new pallet of paint colours and alloy wheels freshen the range further. The new Yeti also receives the latest technology advancements. It is the first Škoda model offered with the option of a reversing camera while the familiar Parking Assistant can now perform perpendicular parking manoeuvres in addition to parallel parking.

Being a Škoda smart solutions abound, the New Yeti again features the practical VarioFlex rear seat system, which allows the seats to fold flat with ease and there is the option of a double-sided boot floor covering and a removable LED lamp.
