Skoda Yeti Urban launched

The Skoda Yeti Urban is a limited-edition version of the SUV, which adds an extra 2450 worth of kit to SE trim at no extra cost.

Aimed at younger, style-conscious buyers, the Urban adds Amundsen+ sat-nav, Bluetooth connectivity and steering wheel-mounted buttons to control the stereo and telephone.

Other additional kit includes new 17-inch alloys, wheelarch extensions, chrome side strips, silver door mirrors and roof rails. The car is further embellished with roof stripes.

Four paint colours are offered: Black Magic pearl effect, Candy White, Brilliant Silver metallic and Steel Grey metallic.

Buyers also get the choice of red or black sport seats, and darkened rear windows.

The Yeti Urban comes in two-wheel-drive form with a manual gearbox only, with the choice of two engines. The petrol option is a 104bhp 1.2-litre TSI, which has average economy of 44.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 149g/km. The 108bhp 2.0-litre TDI diesel offers average economy of 52.3mpg and emissions of 140g/km.

Options available for the Yeti Urban include stainless steel pedals (80), sports exhaust trim (50), and a Nextbase Click 9 Lite Duo portable DVD player with twin nine-inch screens (315).

The Skoda Yeti Urban goes on sale on April 1, and costs 16,900 for the petrol and 18,330 for the diesel car. Just 750 examples of the Urban will be built.
