Congrats Shankar on purchasing a great car and also to go with your instincts. Not many people can actually think of buying a car which is smaller then what they already have when they 'upgrade'! Yeti is is looking great in silver

hey maverick - enjoy your decision! your instincts wont let you down - when you really like something you should go and buy it.

guna - thanks. Yes. It is no longer about Size being synonymous with Premium etc - if I had really wanted size I could have plonked for XUV500. For our needs the Yeti is just perfect. I know in my heart of hearts I always wanted one right from when it was launched. Perhaps that Jeremy Clarkson endorsement just tipped the scales for me..I dont know really. But it is a fantastic vehicle - fit, finish and man, that sound system is something else entirely. Am very glad I took my time on making this decision and executing the same.

other chaps like Pramod, Behemoth and Sushil etc have given plenty of detailed reviews.

I will keep adding stuff here and there onto this thread instead of starting a whole new one. perhaps with a little help from the Mods we can change this thread title to "A Brand New Yeti Elegance it is!"
Cool, probably what you can do is to the report the thread, and the moderators may help to change the title, remove the poll, and move the thread into appropriate section.

the couple of pics in this show the understatement vis a vis the larger Scorpio. also significantly smoother and slick-er looking than the more purposeful, jeep-ish looking Scorp.

The yeti appeals to the finer sensibilities in one. Little surprise that it remains a niche product in our country.

With her in the driveway, i reckon it will be a hard sleeping indoors

Congratulations Shankar! Best wishes for a million safe and enjoyable miles on Yeti. I look forward to ownership thread. You'll find Yeti grow on you.

The quest and discussions in this thread provide multiple viewpoints which will be very valuable indeed to the visitors in search of answers to questions, which arise in many a mind, but find no answer anywhere.

Drive safe.

Congrats Shankar. I understand it is a lot of money but I have always felt Skoda offers better VFM relatively and they generally hit the sweet-spot for plushness, features, practicality and price.

I wish you a very hassle free ownership and hope it will be money well spent for many years to come.

Drive safe!
