Thanks, its quite a looker with nice color combinations.
I hope the build quality of Made in China Yeti matches with German standards and the cost benefits of manufacturing it in china will be passed to customers.

Sad that we cannot have the mean looks of tinted glasses in India anymore !

... looks killer. Would be interesting to know how much difference manufacturing the car in China makes to the cost. It surely will make the car cheaper.

The black tints are actually to hide to interiors from public view as it is not a full-fledged launch as yet. I believe such dark tints are not allowed in China either. Anyone being to China can confirm this..

Best,

Very nice looking vehicle indeed.
Looks slightly bigger and appears to be longer too to accommodate the Chinese preference for Chauffeur Driven vehicles.

Looks really good and seems bigger, spare on rear like the eco sport. They should have regained the round high mounted fog look of the current Yeti though.

That chocolate brown + black combination looks fantastic with those funky smart alloys thrown in. I am so glad that Skoda chose to remove those twin-eyed headlamps - that was the only sore point of an otherwise fantastic little SUV.

Interesting that this finally made it! The rear mounted spare wheel definitely has a different mounting arrangement and is not tailgate mounted. It is probably mounted on a swingarm which is hidden in the rear bumper and you first have to swing away the spare and then the tailgate opens upward normally!
I wish we could have this modification available for our Yeti's in India! It will really liberate a lot of boot space (almost 125 L) more in the boot.
