Published on October 15, 2012 by Tycho de Feijter
New spy shots from the Skoda Yeti testing in on Chinese roads. Production in China will start in the second half of next year by the Shanghai-Volkswagen joint venture. The China-made Skoda Yeti is stretched by 60mm compared to the European version Yeti for more space in the back.
There will be two engines: 1.4 TSI and 1.8 TSI, mated to a 6-speed manual or 6-speed DSG. The base models will be 4×2 and 4×4 will be standard on the expensive versions. No diesels for China, the government doesn’t want them, no matter how clean they are. Price for the China-made Skoda Yeti is yet unknown but will likely start from around 140.000 yuan.
