3 October 2013

The facelifted Skoda Yeti will cost between £16,600 for the Yeti S 1.2 TSI 105 rising to £27,050 for the range-topping Yeti Outdoor Y&K TDI 140 4x4 DSG. As before, the Yeti is offered with two- or four-wheel drive. Facelifted models are available in Yeti Outdoor specification which has a more rugged appearance. Order books open this month; first deliveries are expected in January. 

MG Motor is promoting a free upgrade on MG6 diesel models. For no extra cost MG will upgrade mid-range SE models to the range-topping TSE, representing a saving of £3000. Moving from SE to TSE adds front parking sensors, 18-inch wheels, a rear parking camera, leather trim, automatic lights and wipers, Bluetooth connectivity and electric heated seats.

Alfa Romeo has confirmed that the new 4C will require a service every 20,000km (approximately 12,500 miles) or yearly, whichever is first. It had previously been rumoured that the new rear-engined sports car would require a service every 4,500 miles.

And have Skoda dropped the recent 170bhp DSG Yeti? Probably they were eating too many Audi Q3 sales with that and costing VAG £5K in profit a pop...

Oh dear, the Yeti does look rather dull now. I wonder if some VW top brass had a quiet word to them about producing a successful model which had some personality in its looks.....

Agree. The pre-facelift model added character to the vehicle.

They have ruined the Yeti. Sad

MG6 is becoming seriously good value!

    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
