Skoda Roomster & Skoda Yeti

Thursday 27 August 2009
The Škoda Roomster is a five-door five-seat multi-purpose vehicle-styled leisure activity vehicle. It was revealed as a production model in March 2006 at the Geneva Auto Show, with sales starting in June 2006. It is built at the Škoda factory in Kvasiny, Rychnov nad Kněžnou District. The Roomster is Škoda's first car since the Volkswagen Group's take over of the brand that is not based on an existing Volkswagen Group platform. Instead, it shares components with the previous Škoda Octavia and the current Škoda Fabia. The name is reportedly a conscious combination of the words 'Room' and 'Roadster', and the split personality theme is played out in the design with a carefully honed 'driving room' ahead of the b-pillars, and a generous 'living room' to the rear. The Roomster therefore competes both in the mini MPV and leisure activity vehicle markets, which it will be sharing with the Fiat Idea, Nissan Note, Opel Meriva, Renault Modus and Volkswagen Golf Plus. Skoda Yeti is a small crossover vehicle. The replicas come from Abrex collection. Yeti is not a production model but a concept car.
