Pros : Sporty looks, comfortable interior and compact size.

Cons : High maintenance cost.


Look and Style Last Sunday I got a chance to undergo the test drive of new Skoda Yeti 4x2 variant. When I looked the car from front it caught my eye with its sporty and elegant look. Comfort In terms of comfort if anyone is looking for a comfortable SUV then I think Skoda Yeti 4x2 is the perfect option for them. The SUV has a highly comfortable and luxurious cabin. Pickup Being powered with the highly advanced engine, the new Yeti delivers the better performance and high acceleration. The engine enables the car to cross the speed barrier of 100 kmph in a very short span of time. I reached the top speed of 155 kmph easily without feeling any vibrations. Mileage The sales person at the dealership ensures me that the SUV will deliver the fuel efficiency of 17.5 Kmpl on any terrain. I hope it gives the same mileage as suggested by Skoda guy. Best Features The feature I like the most is its stylish look. The appearance of the car took my heart away. Apart from its looks the new SUV comes affixed with a lot of safety and handling features. Further the SUV provides the ample amount of storage space to store the luggage. Apart from this, the cosmetic features, performance and handling of the car is also impressive. Needs to improve Till now it’s not possible for me to find out any flaw during the test drive. But since Skoda is not well known to deliver the good after maintenance, I think the SUV also lags in this segment that is the poor maintenance. Overall Experience In a nutshell the new Skoda Yeti 4x2 is a good option for those who seek a comfortable SUV.

    It appears as if you have been paid by the SKODA people to write this review. The Yeti is just a SEDAN at the price of a SUV and with a BAD after sales service and no network, it should further reduce its price to 10 L.May be , Maybe then, it might sell a few pieces!!!!!!

    I think the review is definitely good...its nt at all biased in anyway....it seems like u have never owned a skoda before this...people buys Innova fr 14 lacs????...cheap interiors & overall a bad feel of owning a crossover for 14 lac??.but they buy it because of low service cost......As per skoda is concern their cars r high built quality with bad service netwrk....Considering features & quality of leather they r offering on yeti 15 lac for car is worth it...though its ma personal opinion.

    skoda will never be a common man's car anyway! it's a luxury vehicle. if any one buys skoda yeti for 19L on road, the service and maintenance cost would come upto 10-12k per service (15k kms interval). it's just normal.but, if u want a 100% risk free maintanence, just take a bumper to bumper insurance. for heaven sake, skoda's technology, quality, fit and finish are miles apart when compared to tata aria, xuv 500 in that price range. if one wants an urban compact suv which can be driven on a busy city road as well as narrow muddy forest passage, look no further - yeti is the way to go! i am a proud owner yeti, drived 2000 kms, it's just an awesome machine!

  • rajesh kumar |13 Jan,2012 12:39:57 PM

    i own skoda yeti. till now i have not faced any problem whatsoever. at time the vehicle stalls due to clutch issues. but, it can be adjusted during service. it happens only in 4x4 variants. excellent car, i've gone to places where a sedan or safari or scorpio can ever go. how about driving 60km/hr in complete snow! yeti does it! amazing road grip! excellent body to weight ratio.

    is the skoda yeti WD 4X2 OR 4X4.

  • Ramesh |31 Jan,2012 06:48:37 PM

    I own skoda yeti 4x4, 10 months old, 19,000 km. Its a wonderful vehicle to drive. Handling even at 150km/h is so comfortable and you will love it. The quality of yeti cannot compare with xuv 500, Tata Aria or even Innova. I love Yeti. Looks costlier but once you own the vehicle and uses for some times you feel its value for money.
