Whats the score with the massive deposits. It used to be 3 months pretty much universally.

You can adjust the deposit to bring the monthly price down. The total price( which is the important thing) remains about the same. I like this deal as servicing, tyres etc, and road tax included. Really good spec on car too.

I know people give these cars rave reviews. but for me its one of the most stupid / ugly cars going ... voting cold cause its one hell of a s**t looking motor.

Mini Ice Cream van!

I'm not a fan of the face lift model, but as the owner of a pre face-lift version I can honestly say I have never had so many people admiring and asking questions about a car I have owned.

Probably a Marmite thing but the waiting list and numbers you see on the road these days suggest a healthy market.

Rancid looking car!

Fugly!

26k for a Skoda..Yeah right

I still remember when you could pick a Skoda up for £200 quid!

I know the quality has improved since VW took them over but seriously 26k for a Skoda, I can think of far better cars to spend 26k on

What would you buy for £26k then?? Curious. Similar specification.

He won't find one to match the Skoda specification, quality and reliability. What the negative posters here haven't latched onto (probably because they're still riding a bike or a moped) is that Skoda and the Yeti are far ahead of most other equivalents in terms of value, quality, reliability and sheer driving experience. Check out the reviews - even that tit Clarkson reckoned it was the best car on the road!

JD Power 2014 - Yeti overall best SUV
JD Power 2014 - Yeti 3rd best overall (out of all vehicles)

Reliability Index (Warranty Direct - based on actual evidence from claims):

Skoda 9th best out of 39 (Landrover 37th and Audi 34th)


Wake up guys - you can't smell the air, let alone the coffee!

For 26k you are the Merc/BMW market. Skoda surely cannot be real competition, give me the Merc or BMW anyday. Anyone paying £26 for a Skoda must be really thick.

I'm not doubting that £26k is a lot for a car but cars these day are getting really quite expensive.

I was curious to what people genuinely thought that £26k would buy when compared to the Yeti here.

170PS TDi with 4x4 (Haldex)

The L&K is top spec so it will be fully loaded. I think it shares the same chassis/platform as the VW Tiguan and the Audi Q3.

I think for £26k it's a lot of car but as I said I'm curious to see what others think is comparable.

Sorry, mate - you're the thick one. Point us to a brand new Merc or BMW with anything approaching this specification for 26K, would you?

And by the way, in the Reliability Index referred to a couple of posts above, BMW were 29th and Mercedes 32nd out of 39 - Skoda were 9th.

I must admit to not being too convinced by these survey's and often wondered if Skoda owners have lesser expectations and therefore are easily pleased.

I have owned (and still have two VW's as well as a BMW) all manner of VAG brands and none have been really any better than the other, Skoda certainly does not stand out above the others and when you measure reliability I fail to see how the same parts fitted to a VW, Seat, Audi or Skoda can be any more reliable in one vehicle than another,

Yes they are good cars but they are starting to look expensive in the market place (fully loaded Octavia RS is upwards of £36k) - Although I do think this deal could be OK.

Unlikely. Skoda owners these days are likely to have very high expectations - which have been built up by the media. It's also now a highly acceptable 'middle class' car - badge of honour, like shopping at Waitrose and Aldi!

And in any event the Reliability Index is based entirely on hard facts as found by an insurance company - no opinions there at all.

Driver Power is just that, not insurance company related.

Driver Power 2014

The top 3 overall are Skoda's. You can sort into reliability etc, and I refer you to my earlier statement, when the cars are essentially built on shared platforms, mostly shared components and in some cases even built in the same factory then I don't see how you can argue the results are not flawed. It's about owner perception.

I'm not slating Skoda at all but rightly or wrongly I am assuming you are an owner and feel a little protective of the brand (somewhat corroborating my argument) where as having owned a number of Skoda's and other VAG cars I am trying to offer a more balanced view.

As for pricing, without considering in depth specifications but using the base model, 1.0, 60ps, 3 door and manual.

Seat Mii £8195
Skoda Citigo £8210
Vw UP!! £8635 (Includes DAB)

Warranty Direct Top 100

Just for the record, I'm referring not to Driver Power but to the completely different, and well-respected, J D Power survey:

whatcar.com/awa…ome

Interesting that they both reach the same conclusions on Skoda, though, and that they both rate the Yeti so highly, unlike some of the fools in here who know so little about cars (but like to pretend they do).

Those are the ratings for individual models - and they don't yet list the Yeti. These are the overall manufacturer ratings:

I'm not an owner, by the way (sorry to disillusion you) - just considering a switch, though from VW.

Again without looking at specs, just top of range...

Seat - There is a new X-PERIENCE but price not known
Skoda Yeti Laurin & Klement 2.0 TDI CR 170PS 4x4 DPF - £26,740
VW Tiguan 2.0 ltr TDI BMT R LINE 4MOTION - £30,245
Audi Q3 S line Plus 2.0 TDI quattro 177PS 6-speed manual £33,085

Personally I paid just over £21K new for my TDI170 SE Plus including £1200 of options.
To get the same spec with a VW or Audi badge was going to be much more.
It has everything I need including Navigation.

I actually like them Bob, although I like the later model more than the previous - But I think that can be said for pretty much any car that has a mid life facelift.

I'm trying to have a reasonable debate about what people would think are other options for £26k.

I'd like to see what Kia do with the Sportage next as the 7 year warranty is handy and owners seem to like them.
