Skoda has confirmed its SUV Yeti which was put on show at the Geneva Motor Show earlier will make it into India through the form of CKDs and assembled at the company's facility in Aurangabad next year.

This is the exact same procedure the company adopts for some of its other products.

Skoda said it would reveal the car locally during the Auto Expo in Delhi next year and subsequently put it in the market. The Yeti is presented with petrol and diesel engines in Europe and only after the feasibility study is complete, will they come to a decision about the choice of engines for India.

The company will continue with its existing service network and in the future plans to work with VW and Audi's infrastructure for a wider after-sales service network.

Should its price be around the 10 lakh mark, it will be a bargain.
