Barely two days after environment and forest minister Jairam Ramesh termed use of diesel SUVs as ‘criminal’, Czech car-maker Skoda launched its compact SUV Yeti with a price tag of R15.4-16.62 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). What stands out about the Yeti is its best in class fuel economy of 17.7 kmpl.

“I heard what the minister said and many people across the globe also say similar things (that cars) ought to consume less fuel and (be) more environment friendly,” said Thomas Kuehl, member of board and director, sales and marketing, SkodaAuto India.
