I did happen to visit Skoda showroom last weekend. Bookings are open and it seems they have already recieved about 50 bookings. On road price is 21 lakhs in Bangalore. Delivery would begin from November.

Going by the UK site, prices are about 5% more than equivalent Octy. my guess is that the 2.0 crdi DSG is launched first and slowly lower models might trickle in

seen the yeti in white on display over the weekend at the showroom, just ahead of Luckys Restaurant at Bandra.. wish they had got the pricing right, would have done as well as the superb, inspite of the reputation that skoda holds for their A. S S

Skoda India website does not talk about Yeti. Is it formally launched?

The Yeti seems to have been forgotten with the VENTO Fever . Any new update on the likely time frame of launch and the price level expected.

I guess it would be launched during the festive season..............

cheers!

I too think the same way. But I feel due to the nonavailability of Fortuner, people may look at Yeti. It may also affect the sales of Endeavor and Captiva further. The look of the vehicle may drag people towards to it, But 18L is not justifiable.
We are yet to an SUV/MUV in 14-16 (on road) price band. Skoda, are you listening?

I'm hearing of a launch in the final quarter of this year. So I guess....a couple of weeks away still. It's going to be a unique vehicle to test, that's for sure.

Had been to the skoda dealer for the nutbolt cap for my laura.
The sales rep told me the launch is postponed till January 2011 - apparently because the spirits are dampened at Skoda (and for right reasons).

Guess what - Skoda want to sell Yeti for @20lakhs and all feedbacks they have received so far have indicated to them that this is ridiculous for such a small SUV and it would not sell.

So I asked them how this delay in lauch would help - are they going to bring down the cost or make Yeti bigger????

And both of us started .

Well they ought not to be surprised if they try to sell the yeti at 20 lakhs and then find no takers.Fortuner is a formidable car to be in terms of reliability,street presence,ruggedness.
Also these sales rep like someone else said in another thread come up with wilder stories day by day.Spirits dampened,skoda in depression and what not.

For sure if they price it near the Fortuner then threre would be very few takers for Yeti as Fortuner has better road presence and Toyota after sales service.

Fortuner is also substantially bigger vehicle which also has 2 additional seats. Anyway, these two are different type of vehicles and will have different type of target buyers (while there may be some overlap)

not only is Fortuner bigger but also with more cc on the engine will kill Yeti.

20 Lakhs is ridiculous (thinking price) if skoda is thinking at that range.

20 Lacs for Skoda Yeti = Suicidal and certain death for Skoda
Place it around 10-12 Lacs and you may see some action.

Anyways nothing will change until Skoda does something about their A.S.S
