2018 Skoda Yeti – Comes with a Longer Wheelbase

The 2018 Skoda Yeti would not only be bigger in size than that of its predecessor but would also look far more premium. It would also be having an enhanced ground clearance and a longer wheelbase. The fundamental design of the vehicle is all the same though keeping the iconic theme of Yeti going. However, having said that, it would be based on the new language design of Skoda as seen on the new Superb Sedans and the new Octavia. A lot of research work is going on into the making of the styling and design of the car. The buzz going around is that the Skoda Yeti would have a lot of similarities with the Vision S. The front portion would be having a wide grille like the Superb.

It will also be featuring sleek headlamps with projectors and also LED DRLs quite akin to the Kodiak. Sculpted side panels and squared wheel arches would be providing the car with a rugged and bold look. The boxy looking rear hatch will get replaced making the vehicle look more modern and sleek. All in all, there would be plenty of elements present in the new model inspired and borrowed from Seat’s 20V20 Concept SUV. The model will be endowed with contemporary interior inspired by the present generation of Skoda cars. The quality and finish are surely expected to go up.

The Skoda Yeti will come with the most contemporary features like multifunction steering wheel, panoramic sunroof, large touchscreen audio system, ambient lighting reverse parking camera, push-button start, cruise control, etc.
