Skoda Yeti - Launch scheduled for the 2010 Delhi Auto Expo?
Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.
Sources tell us the Skoda Yeti SUV will be Skoda's next big launch in India. The Yeti will be displayed at the country's biggest occasion for car enthusiasts and manufacturers - the 2010 Delhi Auto Expo
The Skoda Yeti which was shown at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show is set to arrive in Indian showrooms in early 2010. It expected to be priced in range of Rs 10-12 lakhs and would become the first SUV launched by a non-Indian auto maker in that price bracket.
Skoda Yeti would sport engines ranging from 1.6-2.0L (petrol) to a 1.9L turbo diesel engine. The car would be imported as CKD and assembled at company's Aurangabad plant. However it's not a full grown SUV measuring just 4.2m in length.
The Skoda Yeti would compete with the likes of Toyota Innova, Tata Safari, Mahindra Scorpio and soon-to-be-launched Tata Indicruz.
