Production version will line up against Nissan Qashqai and Fiat Sedici
12 February 2009

The production version of the Skoda Yeti will be officially unveiled at the Geneva motor show, the company has announced.

The Yeti will be available with a four-wheel drive transmission, as well as a more economical front-wheel-drive option that will line up against the Nissan Qashqai and Fiat Sedici.

The car, which made its public debut at the London motor show in July, will be built on a platform related to the Volkswagen Tiguan, and will adopt a similar range of engines.

Skoda will also show a new, low-carbon Octavia at Geneva. The Skoda Octavia GreenLine will emit just 116g/km of CO2 and return 64.2mpg thanks to a new 1.6-litre diesel borrowed from the VW Group. With common-rail injection it produces 105bhp and 184lb ft of torque.
