Skoda Gets Fuzzy-Wuzzy with Faux Fur-Covered Yeti Ice Special Edition

The Skoda Yeti Ice special edition is the kind of car you need if you’re that guy or gal who likes the feel of a nice comforting mane on their skin when it’s warm outside, window down, one arm out… It might genuinely help drivers with an anger problem who’d either pet themselves calm or simply not be able not to laugh when everybody around them is.

It even goes so far as to make the (Yeti) name more meaningful, an obvious nod towards the clear merits of the mythical creature that inspired the creation of this April 1st build.

And if you were wondering about exterior cleanliness, Skoda assures us that “owners will find that maintaining the Yeti Ice’s fur is easy thanks to standard specification that includes a lifetime supply of ŠKODA-branded shampoo and conditioner, a comb and brush kit to preserve the well-groomed look,” so you’re covered.

Who could say no to a family-sized crossover that makes people “give it a hug and a tickle under the bumper. Everybody loves the new furry finish,” according to Prof. Lukat Thedate, a resounding name in this day and age.
