If Yeti is priced at 20 lakhs, I doubt that it would be a success, for at theat price, Honda CRV, Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour are a much better bet, as Yeti is very small in comparison to them.

I guess it would be a winner if it is priced between 10 -12 lakhs.

no way they are pricing it to 20 lacs. i think they will price it closer to 12-15 lacs.(depending on the goodies, superb specs) because i think other than the engine. the metal used also counts. bigger car means bigger prices. smaller car = proportionate prices!

If this is going to be price range then i am game for it but i doubt it. If its going to come with 2.0tdi engine then it will definately be priced a notch above Laura.

IMO Yeti at 20L will be automotive suicide. I had a close look at the vehicle at the Expo and it comes nowhere close to Fortuner, Captiva or CRV (in and around that 20L range). In terms of looks it is at best decent and its stance is hardly imposing. Skoda should price it at around 15L if it wants to sell some.

The Superb Combi is great for families with kids, with lots of luggage to carry. The Laura RS looks stunning as well. Thanks for the pics

I spoke to Skoda representatives and they say that the price will be similar to Laura.
Currently they are trying to get a 12-16 bracket price band. However they will try to keep it as low as possible

Is that post click job on the photo, or the sharp color of the RS is making everything in the background look so 1990? :P

Especially the lower bee-hive grilles.
