The Yeti does not specifically cater to the needs of any specific segment and will create a new one.

Skoda is set to launch quite a few models/variants at this year’s Auto Expo. Here’s a foretaste of what you can expect:

In February Skoda had revealed that they were planning to launch three new variants of the Fabia hatchback. At that time it was revealed that the Fabia Sportsline will be one of them. It was said that this sports variant of the Fabia will be launched with a bigger displacement engine that currently powers the Octavia and Laura. Since then there has been no PR activity from Skoda’s activity about their upcoming hatchback variants.         At the Auto Expo Skoda the Fabia Sportsline will be on display at the Skoda stall. Skoda is also expected to confirm a launch date and price details for the Fabia Sportsline. The manufacturer till now has not commented on whether the Sportsline will be powered by their 1.8 TSI or 1.9TDI engine. This Fabia variant will be offered will sport larger 15” wheels along with new sporty interiors which will add to the overall appeal of the hatchback. On the exterior a few ‘nip and tuck’ design changes and new color options are likely.
