A limited edition of the Skoda SUV has just been unveiled and like the elusive Yeti, the limited edition Skoda Yeti Urban will not be around for long. Only 750 units are going to be built and this model will be exclusive the UK market.
The Yeti Urban is based on the mid-level SE trim of the original Yeti but customers get more than 2,000 quids of extra accessories with no extra charge. It’s a good value considering that customers will get new 17” black and chrome alloy wheels and wheel arch extensions as well a whole load of ancillaries no one really needs like silver door mirror covers, roof rails, silver door mirror covers and chrome side strips.
In a move to add a higher perceived value to the purchase, customers will also receive an option of red or black sports seats and a front center arm rest with a handy compartment for storage purposes. The Yeti Urban also gets new upgrades like all-important acoustic rear parking sensors, cruise control, a multi function steering wheel, satellite navigation, DAB digital radio and also Bluetooth.
Sadly though, as the name suggests, the Yeti Urban is not made for off-road purposes as it only comes as a two-wheel drive driveline. You do get to choose between two engines though with two different accompanying price points.
The 104bhp 1.2 liter TSI petrol version will set you back £16,900 but it is pretty fuel efficient too with a 44.1mpg fuel consumption, emitting 146g/km of Carbon Dioxide, but let’s face it – nobody really cares how eco-friend a car is.
The 108bhp 2.0 liter TDI version sets you back £18,330. Unfortunately, despite the excess 2,000 quids in price compared the 1.2 liter version, you also burn more fuel with 52.3mpg, all for the sake of an extra 4bhp. Not much savings there.
The Skoda Yeti Urban will be available in April with several colors to choose from – black, white, grey or silver. Apparently Skoda dealers will also offer a variety of redundant accessories that, again, nobody really needs like stainless steel pedals, a portable DVD player with twin nine-inch display and a sports exhaust trim. No, maybe the DVD player would be a nice touch.
Something tells me, though, that this model will not be very much talked about unlike the real Yeti yet if you would like to get a price for driving this motor on a Non Status Car Leasing deal please get in touch.
