I think even other models also has discounts. I was offered discounts on both 4X4 variants. As i wasn't interested in 4X2 i never bothered to check it.

On Laura TSI they are offering 1 Lakh discount & on Yeti you might as well get similar amount as Yeti sales are not on a higher side. Push them little hard & you can pull off a good deal with some freebies & goodies.

Found an interesting video on Youtube which shows the entire Skoda Yeti production line (in Europe) and how it is made. Quite interesting to watch (in 2 parts: 1st part is Body fabrication, 2nd part is assembly)




The robotic welding, sealing and painting "Ducks" are fun to watch and go about their job with endless precision.

Yeti headed for facelift!

Quote:
A new front fascia looks to be part of the package, complete with larger air inlets and a redesigned grille similar to what we've seen on the Skoda Rapid. Designers have also reworked the small crossover's headlights up front, while the rear now wears new taillamp arrays and and fresh valance.

Skoda will put under the hood, though with a range of fresh powerplants behind a number of the company's other models, the manufacturer could easily spruce up the option sheet.

I hope they include bluetooth by default this time around. I am flabbergasted that in this day and age, a premium offering (or aspiring to be) can skimp on this essential feature. My definition of a car now reads - Engine + Four wheels + Bluetooth

Skoda should also consider including GPS and xenons.

Winter tyres are just that, special tyres whose treads are meant to handle loose and slippery, snowy and icy conditions and which are an option for consumers which in turn is available only abroad. Not here. Here, whichever spec of vehicle one hoes for, one gets the same 4 No's Goodyear Excellence and the Conti Spare tyre.
They have specced the vehicle perfectly as per their lights, bearing in mind the overall general use case scenarios that the Yeti is likely to be put yo in India. Hence these tyres which leave the more enthusiastic fellows amongst us feeling rather displeased. I would have vastly preferred a slightly harder rubber compound with an HT or AT design tread. This ould have helped me o pretty much most places with relative impunity where now I am treading rather softly indeed!

Correct. It is most probably a typo which must have occurred owing to lack if proof reading when transplanting the page details from their International site to India.

folks!!! Relatively new to T-BHP. Have been following this thread for a couple of months and now I am in the process of negotiating a deal for a Yeti 4x4 Elegance. What sort of discounts should I be pushing these guys for?

Go and talk to Hemanth the GM at Vinayak in Palace Orchards. Mention me and ask for the best he can do. In my current knowledge, you should easily walk off with 1.5 to 1.8 off on your new Yeti Elegance. Maybe more if you ask for an earlier inventory car from 2011.
Connect with the others who are also looking for the same car and go as a group. Always helps. Hemanth looked after me well and I am sure he will see you right.

Hi all,
Came across this ad of a second hand Yeti for sale in Mumbai on OLX. People looking for a second hand Yeti in Mumbai might want to check it out.
2011 Skoda Yeti (Parsi Owned) - Mumbai - Cars

Seems to be decently maintained by a Parsi (who love their cars!)

(PS: I don't know this car/ owner and am sharing only for information of people who may be interested!)

Regards,
Behemoth

Nice looking second hand. Nice price too. However, lots of Mumbai sellers claim to be selling Parsi Owned. Yes the Parsis love their cars. However, the term is nowadays quite misused and it is quite possible that the owner or seller has not even a remote connection with the community!
