Skoda Yeti Xtreme Concept Debuts At Woerthersee
Skoda Yeti Xtreme Concept is a compact SUV with rally car ambitions. It is dynamic thanks to its engine, all-wheel drive and DSG, height-adjustable chassis and Octavia RS brakes. In addition, it features a rally car inspired interior that boasts aluminium floor panel, Recaro sports seats, carbon fibre trim, ‘Super Sports' steering wheel, iPad cradle, fire extinguisher, off-road and rally equipment. Just as the Skoda CitiJet Design Concept, this is the second concept vehicle, which the visitors of Woerthersee Festival in Austria will be able to see. The premiere at the event will happen on 28th of May.
The sporty concept rally car is based on the popular compact Yeti SUV. It combines the power of an AWD SUV with the strong design elements and equipment features of a racy rally car. It is powered by a 1.8 TSI engine coupled with six-speed dual clutch transmission (DSG).
The unit produces 152 horsepower (112 kW) and maximum torque of 250 Nm (185 lb-ft) which is achieved between 1,500 and 4,200 rpm. Yeti Xtreme accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 192 km/h. The concept is also equipped with special Octavia RS brakes.
Furthermore, in terms of exterior, the concept model is painted in striking matt-grey. It runs on 17-inch alloy wheels fitted with large off-road tyres. It features tinted side windows, roof and wheel rim inserts in bright yellow-green. Powerful bumper and a large air intake, along with LED headlights are all at the front.
Shaped wings and powerful door sills can be seen from the side, while at the rear, the strong rear bumper and wide exhaust tailpipes round it all-out. The boot includes a spare wheel and recovery tracks.
Inside, the racy rally design theme continues. This means that this Skoda vehicle is equipped with features typically associated with rally use. Passengers can sit on 4 individual Recaro sports seats with integrated four-point safety belts, while only the driver can enjoy the "Super Sport" steering wheel with integrated gearshift paddles.
High-tech materials for various parts in car's interior were utilized. For instance, the inner door covers have been made entirely from carbon fibre, a sand shovel and a thermos flask have been integrated into holders fitted in the paneling, the floor panel is made from aluminium.
Colour & Trim package is offered in this concept. It includes further carbon fibre elements and high-quality, dark Alcantara surface with green colour accents, aluminium pedals and special door sill plates. The centre console has been completely redesigned.
