The CitiJet will not be the only concept that Skoda will present at this year’s Wörthersee. The company released images of a concept that is based at the renewed Yeti. This concept, is called Yeti Extreme. According to the Czech automaker, its engineers managed to turn the car into a standard sport and most dynamic vehicle, “inspired by the rallies”. Under the hood lies a 1.8 liter TSI engine, which delivers 150 hp and 250 Nm of torque. The engine, is combined to a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Skoda tells us that the Yeti Extreme can do the 100 km/h from standstill in 9 seconds and that it can reach a top speed of 191 km/h.
The Skoda Yeti Extreme, is painted in a matte gray color with the roof, wheels and some more details in fluorescent yellow. The front bumper is redesigned and now features large air intakes and LED day time running lights, while the rear bumper has two exhaust tailpipes. Other changes include tinted windows, larger off-road tires, a protective part at the front, back and side while Skoda says that the height of the chassis is adjustable. In general, the style of the car has become much more aggressive.
The interior of the Yeti Extreme features four Recaro seats with seatbelts for each seat, sport steering wheel with paddles for operating the gearbox and various ornaments made of aluminum and carbon fiber. Skoda said the Yeti Extreme is a design study and that it is not going to go into production. It will make his debut next to the CitiJet at the end of the month, in Wörthersee, Austria.
