Looks quite good in white.
Did anyone attend this at the end of the day? How is it we are seeing no reports on this preview?

Even I am surprised to see that claim. Yeti is a new vehicle which has'nt been around for long enough to become popular.

Reminds me of Ford Fusion's category & would've been better without those roof railing; oOtherwise, looks are OK to me. But again the terror of getting it serviced at Skoda A.S.S is a nightmare.

I feel it looks good for its class. It is not a full on SUV like the Fortuner or Endeavour. it is an interesting alternative to a car with some good off-road talent.

The only thing that would prevent me from buying one is Skoda's Aftersales.

Seems to be way too over priced at an ex-showroom Delhi price of Rs 15.4 lakh for the Ambiente variant, and Rs 16.62 lakh for the fully loaded Elegance variant.
