The 2017 Skoda Yeti is now official and the new 110TSI four-wheel drive Outdoor model has grabbed the attention of many.
Instead of having too many variants in the Yeti lineup, Skoda has decided to keep things consolidated with just two cars. One of them is the 110TSI while older versions including the 103 TDI and the 92 TSI are dropped out of the lineup. The car is still powered by the same 1.4-liter turbo petrol engine variant. The same powertrain is being used by the Octavia and many other models in the Volkswagen group.
Skoda confirmed that the new Yeti is not only rugged but is also capable of offering the fuel efficiency in its range. The 110TSI is the flagship model and it boasts of some of the best components in the segment. The car’s powertrain is mated to a six-speed DSG transmission which properly splits the power generated to all four wheels at once. The same was already used in the 103TSI edition.
Buyers can easily spot the flagship model because it features distinctly large 17-inch Erebus black alloy wheels designed for the most rugged roads of them all. The black wheels are properly contrasted with silver roof rails and black bumpers run along the sides, ready to take any impact and withstand the force. Adventure lovers would definitely appreciate this feature that the new Yeti has underbody protection, in case it becomes mandatory to drive through rocky roads.
The 2017 Skoda Yeti 110TSI has climate control air conditioning, chrome interior door handles and has black sills. The entry level 81TSI model however doesn’t have such functionalities. Standard features found in the car include front fog lights, privacy glass, satellite navigation, metallic or pearl effect on paint, front, rear parking sensors and more.
Skoda has deleted a number of cars in the lineup so as to pave way for newer models and powertrains. According to the company’s boss, it has proved to be successful in terms of sales and also delivers what their customers want.
The pricing of the base model is now at $25,490 in Australia and it doesn’t include on-road charges. It uses a six-speed manual gearbox while the seven speed DSG automatic gearbox edition sells at $27,790. The 110TSIoutdoor all-wheel drive edition is priced at $34,990 and it is an inclusive pricing making it an attractive prospect for buyers who are looking forward to enjoy adventurous rides.
