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.
