On the outside, the Yeti Xtreme Concept in finished in matte grey paint and in fluorescent yellow highlights.

Rally-centric tools including a belt cutter and fire extinguisher sit on a revised centre console, while an iPad dock and first aid kit also feature. Off-road equipment sits in the boot, which includes special traction mats and ‘recovery tracks.’

Powering the Yeti Xtreme is a 1.8-litre TSI engine that is rated at 150PS of max power and 250Nm of peak torque. The engine has been mated to a 6-Speed dual-clutch transmission.The 0 to 100 kmph mark is reach in 9 seconds with a top speed of 192 kmph. The Concept also benefits from bigger brakes from the Octavia vRS and a height-adjustable chassis.
