Skoda to Present Yeti Extreme Rally SUV at W————rthersee

By   |   26 May,2014

At the Wörthersee GTI Event, a VW group exclusive tuning show that will be held from the 28th of May to the 31st of May at Wörthersee in Austria, the automotive manufacturer from the Czech Republic, Skoda, will be previewing a new rally-specced version of the Yeti.

The vehicle will be called the Yeti Extreme and it will have design features like a neon green roof panel and wheel rim accents, massively flared wheel arches that can hold monster off-road tyres fitted on 17 inch wheels, a revised air dam, skid plates, LED headlamp clusters and twin tailpipes.

Power for the Skoda Yeti Extreme will be provided by a 1.8 litre, TSI petrol engine that generates 150 hp and a peak torque output of 250 Nm; good for a 0-100kph time of 9 seconds and a top speed of 192 kph. The drive will be channelled to all 4 wheels (obviously, since this is a rally-spec car) via a 6 speed, dual clutch DSG transmission.

Apart from these, the Yeti Extreme gets some extra off-roading kit such as a sports steering wheel with integrated paddle shifters, 4-point safety harnesses, sports seats made by Recaro, a belt cutter and fire extinguisher, interiors made with strong and weight-saving carbon fibre and Alcantara; and traction mats that can be placed under the wheels to create a temporary road so that the wheels can grip and pull the car forward in a low traction situation.
