“We are looking at offering the smoothness of car like drive while maintaining the toughness associated with an European SUV in the Yeti. We have adopted the ‘rough road package’ in the vehicle to make it compatible for local Indian conditions, as the original vehicle is more suitable for Europe and other markets,” a senior Skoda Auto executive said, preferring not to go on record.
