Skoda launches Yeti 4×2 in two variants, price starts at Rs 13.46 lakh

Added in: News



Skoda Auto India have launched the 4×2 version of its Yeti SUV. Although an accomplished SUV, which is equally good on the road, the Yeti wasn’t finding many takers primarily due to the high price of its 4×4 variant, and probably because of its unconventional looks. Skoda have removed one stumbling block by introducing a cheaper variant for the car.

The 4×3 version of the Yeti will be available in two variants – Active and Ambition, priced at Rs 13.46 and 14.32 lakh respectively. Unlike what most of you guys would think, the changes made to the Yeti 4×2 do not restrict themselves only to the transmission, as the engine on the 4×2 variant is also a less powerful version of the 2.0 liter TDI unit. While the 4×4 version of the car features a 140bhp / 320 Nm version of the engine, both the 4×2 variants come with a 110bhp / 250 Nm version of the engine – much like the entry level Laura, which is less powerful than the higher spec variants.

Another change made to the Yeti 4×2 over the 4×4 is the gearbox. The 4×2 variant will have a five-speeder unit unlike the 4×4’s six speed box. Other changes include a lighter weight (98kg) and a smaller fuel tank (55 liters, against 4×4’s 60-liter tank). The ARAI certified fuel efficiency for the car is 17.72kmpl, which is great for a vehicle in this segment.
