Yeti Elegance Review
Look and Style: A bit unconventional. But the boxy look from the rear grows on you while making for good visibility and storage. The Range Rover is not a great looking car at first glance too.
Comfort: Five in comfort including one minor, four adults in style. Oodles of space for luggage.
Pickup: Very good. The peppy engine and the assuring drivability of the car makes handling a dream even in the congested and potholed city that Bangalore has now become. Handles better than a much smaller car in city traffic.
Mileage: Min 10 kmpl in traffic described above where the car is being driven at third gear or lower 90 percent of the time. Of course with A/C on.
Best Features: Great fit and finish, exteriors as well as interiors, solid feel to the car indicative of good build quality, user friendly dashboard with a nice MFD, thoughtfully engineered steering mounted controls, reassuring safety features, exciting driveability. Sounds like the car brochure but it's all true.
Needs to improve: Hear things about the poor after sales service. Would be a pity if it were true. Skoda, you have made what is perhaps the best car on the Indian roads at the moment. Hope you will protect and cherish it.
Overall Experience: A great all round motoring experience. Was a bit apprehensive before I bought the vehicle thinking of the two lakh price differential, the perceived lower resale and alleged poor after sales service. The last is correctable, the first is not significant as it initially appears to be if you analyse all aspects of the car (don't forget the driving experience and enhanced safety features). About resale, who knows. At this point, I am too busy enjoying the car. I do not believe that can a true all round motoring experience would fail to hold its value. Do go for it and maybe get a drive assure package initially as a safety net till you know the Yeti better.
