The event will also mark the debut of the Skoda CitiJet - a design concept built by Skoda apprentices. It is with these expressive vehicles that the brand once again underlines the emotional qualities and versatility of its attractive model range.

This is the 33rd time that the legendary Volkswagen tuning event will be taking place. Around 200,000 tuning fans will be making the pilgrimage to the cult event in Reifnitz, Austria (28 to 31 May). Skoda will be taking part in the GTI event for the fifth time.

"We want to continue the positive development and to grow further with new models over the coming years," says Werner Eichhorn, Skoda Board Member for Sales and Marketing. "Therefore we are going to strengthen the emotional vibrancy of the brand. Skoda Yeti Xtreme - as a dynamic and powerful compact SUV concept - demonstrates the brand's strong expertise in four-wheel drive technology, as well as our know-how when it comes to rally sports."

In creating the Skoda Yeti Xtreme, Skoda designers have converted their successful compact SUV into a particularly sporty and dynamic rally design. The show car combines the power of an all-wheel drive SUV with strong design elements and equipment features of a racy rally car.

The car is powered by a 1.8 112 kW strong TSI engine and features a six-speed dual clutch transmission (DSG). The maximum torque of 250 Nm is achieved between 1,500 and 4,200 rpm. The Yeti Xtreme accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 9 seconds; its top speed is 192 km/h. The Yeti Xtreme features special Octavia RS brakes.

The striking matt-grey Yeti stands on powerful 17-inch alloy wheels and large off-road tyres. It features tinted side windows, roof and wheel rim inserts are set off in bright yellow-green. At the front, the brawny athlete has a powerful bumper and a large air intake, along with LED headlights. For robust sporting use, the height of the chassis can be adjusted.

The Skoda Yeti Xtreme flexes its muscles with strikingly shaped wings and powerful door sills. At the rear, the strong rear bumper bears witness to the power and dynamics of the vehicle, so do the two wide exhaust tailpipes, which sound particularly throaty as a result of the absence of silencers. The boot includes a spare wheel and so-called 'recovery tracks', special traction mats that can be pushed under the wheels, should the car get stuck in sand.
