        The German automaker Skoda is considering powering its existing sedan, Laura, with a 2.0 litre diesel engine. The company had launched Skoda Laura in India in 2005 with a 1.9 litre diesel engine. "We are thinking of a 2.0 litre diesel engine for the Laura in India. Final decision will be taken when the new Laura will be launched in May-June," SkodaAuto India Pvt Ltd Managing Director Karsten Bogun told the media at the Geneva Motor Show.

        Bogun also indicated the company is still testing waters to launch its sport utility model – Skoda Yeti in India. "We are currently conducting tests on Yeti to see its suitability for India. We want to bring the car to India. However, the car will be launched in India only after it is introduced in Europe," said Bogun. He stated that the engine capacity for the Indian model will be tweaked a little and the model will be powered by a 1.8 litre petrol engine.

        Skoda currently sells Octavia and Laura in the sedan segment and Fabia in the premium hatchback segment. It intends to extend its operations in India and occupy a larger market share.
