Completely revised Skoda Superb and Skoda Yeti celebrate their premieres at the 2014 Auto Expo

Skoda continues its model campaign in India. The completely revised Skoda Superb and rejuvenated Skoda Yeti celebrate their premieres on the subcontinent at the Auto Expo 2014 (February 5-11, 2014). Both models sport new designs, fresh interiors and enhanced
technological features. The Superb is to be launched in February, with the Yeti arriving in the second half of 2014.

"India is an important market for Skoda. The Skoda Superb and Skoda Yeti offer that 'bit more car' at an affordable price in their segments - now more than ever. This means that the cars meet the needs of Indian customers perfectly," said Werner Eichhorn, Member of the Board responsible for Sales and Marketing.

The Skoda Superb is the flagship of the Czech brand. The completely redesigned mid-class saloon features the new Skoda design language. The front and rear sections have been completely redesigned. Clean lines and balanced proportions attest to precise design and the highest quality; the interior sports new steering wheels, while at the same time, the Superb confirms all the good values that have defined the model's success in India over the past ten years: lots of space, maximum functionality, highest levels of comfort, best safety and fantastic value for money. The space and comfort in the Superb go well beyond the usual offers found in its class. The engines offered for the Superb in India - a petrol 1.8 TSI-118 kw and diesel engine 2.0 TDI-103 kw - win over customers with their performance and efficiency.

The second half of 2014 is to see the launch of the completely revised Skoda Yeti on the Indian market. The compact SUV now features newly-designed front and rear sections. The Yeti, soon to be available in India, is based on the Yeti outdoor version. Its hallmark - a distinctive off-road look. Design elements such as bumpers, air intakes, under-ride protection, side mouldings and door sills are customized in black lacquered plastic. In addition, there are other attractive comfort and design features fitted as standard, including bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, an electronically-adjustable driver's seat, a multifunction steering wheel, electronic tyre pressure monitoring system, and the automatic locking and start system KESSY (Keyless-Entry-Start-and-Exit-SYstem). In addition, the enormously generous amount of room and the superior functionality of the compact SUV have won over customers around the world. There are two diesel engines available for the Indian Yeti: the 2.0 TDI/81 kw with manual five-speed gearbox and 2.0 TDI/103 kw with manual six-speed gearbox. The 2.0 TDI/81 kw engine is available with front-wheel drive; the 2.0 TDI/103 kw comes with all-wheel drive fitted as standard.

"The success of recently launched new generation Octavia heralds a new era for Skoda India. The new design language has been well received and appreciated by our consumers. The redesigned Superb and Yeti will further strengthen Skoda's position in the premium category in India," said Sudhir Rao, CMD, Skoda Auto India. "We will continue to focus on providing our customers with great products and an enhanced ownership experience. There will be an increased thrust in the aftersales domain with an aim to build a loyal customer base and strong lasting relationships with the customers in India,"
