Skoda has already revealed a concept car called CitiJet for this year’s Worthersee GTI meeting, but that car is made by apprentices. It’s a sort of appetizer. The main course is this, the Skoda Yeti Xtreme built by qualified engineers and designers.
This thing is, the CitiJet seems like a far nicer car, both in idea and execution, than this car which appears to be a normal Yeti with yellow wheels and roof. But the Yeti Xtreme may actually inspire a production model, while the CitiJet is pure fantasy.
The design of Skoda Yeti Xtreme is inspired by rally cars with a matte grey body and bright yellow-green roof and 17-inch rims. It has tinted windows and revised bumpers with large air intake and LED headlights, as well as new sills and modified wings. The rally theme continues inside, with 4 individual Recaro sports seats with integrated four-point safety belts. Other features include the ‘Super Sport’ steering wheel with integrated gearshift paddles.
Skoda Yeti Xtreme is based on the 1.8 112 kW TSI model and is equipped with a six-speed dual clutch transmission (DSG) and all-wheel-drive. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 9 seconds and has a top speed of 192 km/h. The brakes in this car come straight from Octavia RS.
