Powered by the same 1968 cc engine, the new Yeti that is low priced has shed some power and weight. The new Yeti is now 110 PS car and outputs a peak torque of only 250 Nm compared to the 320 Nm in the other models. In addition to this the performance surely has affected due to its being powered by only two wheels. However, the lag in power is apparent to only those who have driven the Yeti before. For fresh buyers, the new Yeti is as powerful as any other SUV is. Another change is the replacement of the six speed gearbox with that of a five speed one.
