The new Yeti is for the first time available in two distinct styles. Each has its own 'face', designed in the spirit of SKODA's new design language.
The Yeti looks sporty and sleek, with its bumpers, side sills and mouldings all in body colour. In contrast, the Yeti 4x4 Outdoor is visibly more rugged and ready for off-roading, its strong presence a result of its newly designed front and rear bumpers and black body-styling.
The Yeti is defined by its combination of striking design and uncompromising functionality. Its bold and sophisticated new look, with sharp angles and clean lines, newly-designed headlights and the new SKODA logo, all hint at the Yeti's remarkable on and off-road capabilities.
The stylish Yeti, available in Active and Ambition variants, is the ideal family vehicle for the city. Perfect visibility will give you a pleasant feeling and confi dence behind the wheel; something which is invaluable in city traffic. As a compact SUV, the Yeti also enables you to park in limited spaces.
The distinctive yet practical design of the Yeti distinguishes itself with features including body-coloured lower bumpers (front and rear) and door sills, as well the unique honeycomb grille on the front bumper. Roof rails come in either Black (for Active) or Silver (for Ambition). Both the Yeti Active and Ambition feature 17" alloy wheels (pictured are the 17" Scudo alloy wheels; standard on Active).

If you want to greatly reduce the stress of parking, then the Automatic Parking Assist is a great feature. It will select an appropriate parking place, park in a row of parallel or perpendicular parked vehicles, and can even drive out of a row of parallel parked vehicles. When parallel parking, it only needs a space 60 cm longer than the car itself (pictured is the Automatic Parking Assistant on the multifunctional display, available in Tech Pack).
A new standard feature on all Yeti models is the KESSY system (Keyless Entry, Start and exit System), which enables you to use the car without using your key. To switch the engine on and off you simply use the Start/Stop button.
Available in the Off-road pack, the double-sided carpet is a great addition to the Rapid. The standard carpet fabric can be used for transporting everyday goods such as groceries. The mat can be easily fl ipped to a washable, heavy-duty rubber for transporting more rugged equipment such as sports gear.

For even easier parking, the Yeti is equipped with a rear-view camera located on the boot handle. It monitors the space behind the car and indicating the driving lines, based on the vehicle width.

If you want to take some refreshments with you on your trip, you will surely welcome the cup holder on the centre console.
Whether on your daily drive to work or in pursuit of adventure, the Yeti provides you with maximum safety. In addition to excellent road holding, which can also be credited to advanced systems such as ESC (Electronic Stability Control), ASR (Anti-Slip Regulation) and EBD (Electronic Brake-pressure Distribution), the Yeti has many passive safety features, whose task is to protect the passengers in extreme situations.
The curtain airbags, which create a “wall” along the side windows when activated, protect passengers’ heads in the front and rear.
The driver knee airbag prevents contact with the lower part of the dashboard in the event of a collision.
