If Car Magazine is correct, Skoda is in an expansionist mood, on a mission to occupy new segments in the immediate future. The result of the diversification plan is to split the next generation Yeti into two models - a five seater of VW Tiguan size in 2015 and a seven seater of Passat size with 4WD in 2016.
The only logic behind this move is Skoda's ambition to compete in different leagues. They have a single SUV (Yeti) and MPV (Roomster) in their portfolio preventing them from going for the kill.
The report goes on to state that Skoda has taken the additional responsibility of developing and manufacturing low cost powertrains for the whole VW group. None of this information is verified.
We are interested in seeing what the Czech has in store for the Skoda aspirationalist on a tight budget. They have ruled out the CitiGo and need a B car to compile big numbers in India.
