This new rendering shows that the final production version will retain most of the lines of the concept vehicle, including the tear drop foglamps and different colored cabin surrounds.
The Yeti is tipped to share its running gear with the Octavia sedan and include several of VW Group’s most popular engines in its range. The entry level model will feature a 1.6L FSI four-cylinder, followed by two diesel engines, a 1.9L TDI and a more powerful 2.0L. The range topper will be a 2.0L turbo petrol engine.
Production will start in early 2009 at Skoda’s Kvasiny plant in the Czech Republic where the company is also readying the new Superb flagship, which you see a preview of in our earlier story.
