The Czech brand is likely to showcase this second-generation Yeti at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2017. As you can immediately tell, the model will be all-new, and it will be underpinned by the MQB platform to bring about the related benefits, like the substantial weight loss. With a marked increase in size, this will translate into a more spacious cabin and extra boot space, especially when compared to the current Yeti.
Skoda also added that the next Yeti will use some of the design language from the Kodiaq, and this did catch our prying eyes when we went over both designs. Powertrains for the next-gen Yeti could be sourced from the engines that currently power their Octavia, albeit in a different state of tune to match the SUV capability. Going by how well Skoda packages their products, expect this one to be no different.
We should be able to give you more information on Skoda’s plans for the Yeti in the months to come, so stay tuned to CarWale.
