Next generation Skoda Yeti spotted on test in China

Next generation Skoda Yeti spotted on test in China

The next generation Skoda Yeti has been spotted testing in China. It is expected to debut at the end of this year and will slot in below the much larger India bound Kodiaq crossover. It will be the second generation for the compact SUV and is expected to be a major overhaul since the vehicle was launched in 2009.

In the spy shots, we can see a fake grille which by the look of things was meant to throw off attention from the car but it doesn’t seem to have worked as the car sports Skoda wheels and has the same wrap around tail lamps from other vehicle in the Skoda family. Most importantly, we can see that this vehicle will sport a crossover design rather than the boxy looks of the current car. We can expect then that this car will mimic the appearance of Kodiaq but in a toned down form.

It will move to the MQB platform and be offered with a variety of petrol and diesel engines both of which will get AT/MT options. The European spec car is expected to get AWD on certain variants as an optional extra.
The current Yeti has not been a big hitter for Skoda in India. However, the time now seems ripe for Skoda to cash in on the SUV/crossover craze which wasn’t so much when the Skoda was initially launched. If it does come to India then expect it in 2018 and with local assembly to keep things competitive.
