Since its launch in the UK in 2009, the Yeti has been a sales success, with over 13,600 being registered in in 2016 alone – its best ever year. Building on the SE variant which includes dual-zone climate control, cruise control, rear parking sensors and Bluetooth, SE Drive adds satellite navigation, auto-dimming rear view mirror, heated windscreen, heated front seats and front parking sensors. SE Drive variants are further distinguished by new seat upholstery and distinctive 17-inch alloy wheels.
Based on the SE L trim, SE L Drive variants get leather upholstery, LED rear lights, part silver roof rails, 17-inch alloy wheels and Bi-Xenon headlights additionally.
The Yeti SE Drive and SE L Drive are available with three engines; two diesels and one petrol. The 1.2 TSI petrol engine generates 110bhp and comes paired with either a six-speed manual or six-speed DSG automatic gearbox. The 2-litre TDI 110bhp comes with a manual gearbox and the option of four-wheel drive. Those choosing the more powerful 2-litre TDI 150bhp get four-wheel drive as standard.
