Czech carmaker Skoda has confirmed that it will be adding a third SUV to its lineup which will slot under the next Yeti and the new Kodiaq.

Speaking to Autocar, Skoda's Technical Development Chief Christian Strube confirmed that the company was already working on the small SUV.

The SUV will be the smallest SUV in Skoda's range with the Yeti set to get bigger and more mainstream when the second generation of the SUV hits the streets in 2018.

The new SUV will be based on the Volkswagen group's MQB A0 platform, which is also set to underpin the next Fabia and Volkswagen Polo.

The new Skoda SUV could be made available with both front-wheel drive and four-wheel-drive, however any decision on the availability of the four-wheel drive option is expected to be taken at a later date by the carmaker.

Skoda is expected to slot in small-capacity turbocharged engines under the hood of its smallest SUV, though with the VW group's push towards electrification, expect to see hybrid or fully electric versions of the SUV at a later date.

The smallest Skoda SUV is set to enter showrooms across the world in 2019.
