Skoda to launch Snowman SUV in India, to be positioned above Yeti - Images

t's raining crossovers and SUVs in the current decade. And the new entries in the SUV segment comes from the Czech-based automaker Skoda who is mulling to develop two more SUVs, which will be introduced in the market in the next two to four years, including in India. The addition of two more vehicles is the part of Skoda's strategy to present a new model every six months, as announced by the automaker at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Skoda Snowman SUV will be based on the Volkswagen Tiguan that is expected to hit the market in 2014. And the second small SUV will be a follow-up to the current Skoda Yeti and is expected to arrive in 2016.

"There are several volume segments we are not currently in. We're discussing both directions at the moment (MPV and SUV.) Personally, I prefer SUVs. There is certainly space in the range for two SUVs, one bigger and one smaller than the Yeti. Whatever models we bring, they have to be compatible with our international markets, India, China and Russia." the company's technical director, Eckhard Scholz said in a statement.
