Skoda Yeti Monte Carlo launched
Popular Monte Carlo trim gives Skoda Yeti sportier looks and costs from £24,390
The Skoda Yeti is now available in sporty-looking Monte Carlo trim, which pays homage to Skoda’s rally heritage.
Based on the SE model, the Monte Carlo edition gets a black roof and 17-inch Origami alloy wheels, while the car’s grille, spoiler, rear bumper, and door mirrors are also finished in black.
The Monte Carlo’s equipment list includes xenon headlights that follow the direction of the steering wheel, sports seats, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, and unique detailing on the instrument cluster and floor mats.
The Yeti Monte Carlo is only available with a high-power 168bhp 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine, with four-wheel drive.
Buyers can choose between a six-speed manual or a DSG automatic gearbox. The manual returns fuel economy of 49.6mpg, with CO2 emissions of 149g/km for road tax of £145 annually, while 0-62mph takes 8.4 seconds. Economy in the DSG model drops to 44.8mpg, emissions rise to 164g/km for road tax of £180, while 0-62mph is completed in 8.6 seconds.
The popular Monte Carlo trim is already available for the Skoda Citigo and the Skoda Fabia, giving the cars a sporty look without high insurance premiums. Those models have been on sale for some time now, and cost from £10,590 and £14,070 respectively.
The Skoda Yeti Monte Carlo is priced from £24,390 for the manual model and £25,490 for the DSG-equipped car. For our reviews of the Skoda Yeti, Skoda Fabia and Skoda Citigo, visit the Carbuyer Skoda reviews page.
