The Mlada Boleslav based car company Skoda is planning to replace the current Yeti with the so-called Snowman, which is expected to make its way onto the market in 2016.
Skoda is still expanding its lineup and after introducing the small Citigo and then the Rapid in two body styles, the company is planning to develop a successor of the popular Yeti, which will probably be named the Snowman. The model in question is believed to be based on the Volkswagen Tiguan but it should grow in size, compared to its German cousin, in order to make room for a third row of seats.
The growth of the Skoda Yeti’s successor will leave a gap and this is expected to be filled with another SUV, which will be based, probably, on the VW Taigun. As far as the engine lineup goes in the new Skoda Snowman, this is expected to include four-cylinder petrol and diesel units, probably shared with the Tiguan. The new model should make its public debut sometimes in 2016, so if you’re looking into it, then you have a long wait. More details on the vehicle are limited for the moment and they will probably be announced close to its unveil.
