Skoda has serious plans for the Indian market. Apparently, they are themselves surprised by the response the Indian consumer gave to the excellent Octavia. Skoda Superb is already out and we are seriously waiting for the fabulous Fabia to arrive on the Indian shores. However, rumors are in that the company is also planning to bring in production version of their concept car Roomster based on Yeti concept vehicle they showcased in the Geneva Motor Show.

The vehicle would be a multi purpose vehicle (MPV) and would be probably aimed at the Hyundai Tucson and Honda CR-V. It is expected to be launched internationally sometime next year and the Indian market should see it here in 2007. The concept vehicle came with a single door entry on the passengerís side though the production model should be a regular 5-door arrangement for comfortable entry.

The critics call this car the answer for all active people looking for a car that can take them exactly where they want to be. It would serve multiple purposes along with being a useful city car with its high seats, good view, and compact dimensions. And the car would suit the Indian roads perfectly looking at the rugged structure and ground clearance. Skoda already has made an impression on the Indian customer and if they can price it right, it just might become another best seller for the Czech Auto Maker.

Too disjointed for my taste. Looks really odd near the B pillar. And i dont think lot of people will buy it if its launched here.. cos suv's have a higher percieved value than muv's

There was another concept similar to this, "yeti" i think.. that looked awesome.

Large Wagon-R.. Too japanese.... Going by the failure of fusion, i am not sure if this will do well.. but then there is the innova, which could be considered to be similar.. Again, wonder if it is targeted at the taxi/people mover market or the joint family..;-)...

Even if they lauch'll be insanely priced that no one would even consider it unless they really want all that room. And what an ugly looking thing to buy. Comparing with the Octavia or the Laura, this is like ewww....

They are having a very hard time even selling the Octavia Combi version, that there is absolutey no need to get this in, cuz they'll have the same probs

Better thing to do will be to bring in the Laura RS and the Fabia
