Engine boost for
SKODA is expanding its Yeti Monte Carlo range with the addition of two new engines, a diesel and petrol.
Following its introduction to the Yeti line-up last year, the sporty Monte Carlo model has proved popular with buyers - prompting Skoda to offer an even broader and more affordable range for 2016.
Originally available with a 2.0 TDI 150bhp diesel, the Yeti Monte Carlo range now features a 1.2 TSI 110bhp petrol and 2.0 TDI 110bhp diesel - with the petro-powered model offered with an optional seven-speed DSG gearbox.
The arrival of the two new engine options has the added advantage of making the Yeti Monte Carlo an even more affordable proposition, with the 1.2 TSI model starting at £19,700.
Adding the DSG automatic gearbox increases the price to £20,800, while the new 2.0 TDI comes in at £21,045.
All three new models are front-wheel drive and come with good specification lists and a striking design package.
This consists of 17-inch Origami alloy wheels finished in gloss black, Bi-Xenon headlamps with cornering function and dynamic angle control, black roof and door mirrors and black spoilers at the front and rear.
In addition, all versions feature a black front grille, Monte Carlo badging and LED rear lights.
Inside, standard equipment includes a three-spoke Supersport leather multifunction steering wheel, sports seats with Monte Carlo upholstery and Monte Carlo floor mats, instrument cluster and door sill trims.
