Skoda has recently announced its pricing structure for Skoda Yeti in Europe. The car will hit the markets in Europe by September this year. The car is headed for India as well. It will be displayed at the upcoming India Auto Show 2010 in January next year. Yeti is priced at Rs. 10.93 lakh in Europe and according to unconfirmed sources the car is expected to be priced between Rs. 10-14 lakh in India as well.
The Yeti is a compact (wheel base 2,578 mm), progressive and smart SUV based on ‘Simply Clever’ solutions, such as the VarioFlex rear seat system known from the Roomster. The vehicle's dimensions (length 4,223 mm, width 1,793 mm, height 1,691 mm) make it possible to easily enlarge the luggage compartment to as much as 1,760 litres.
Skoda intends to manufacture its SUV crossover model at its Aurangabad plant where it will import the CKD units for the model. The Indian model may be powered with the same 1.2L petrol and 2.0L diesel engine that currently drives the European model. According to a senior official, the company is ready to undertake a feasibility study shortly and based on its research it will be able to announce further details about the Indian model and its expected date of launch next year.
