The Skoda Yeti is due to be updated for 2014, and these first spy pictures reveal it'll get a sleeker look inspired by the latest Octavia and Rapid models.
Camouflaged to look like the current car, this test mule was spotted in the Czech Republic near the manufacturer's base. We're expecting the Yeti to ditch its centrally mounted rounded lights, in favour of a less controversial design. The grille will be narrower, the bonnet more sculpted and the headlights a little more stylish.
The daytime running lights used to be mounted in the two central headlamps but we're expecting them to move in to the headlights, with top-spec models getting a stylish new LED signature.
The rear of the new Yeti will also see big changes with a modified bumper, newly shaped numberplate holder and LED tail-lights. The interior is likely to see improvements, too, but the engine line-up is expected to be carried over, although a stop/start system is a possibility to help reduce emissions.
The public unveiling of the Yeti is scheduled for the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, with sales expected to follow later in the year.
