Skoda.co.uk was actually down due to excess traffic after JC's declaration of love for the Yeti.

1.8 TSI Elegance according to webuyanycars.

I was sure this new series started next week :(

JC started this feature quite well with a convincing case for why he liked the Yeti and then just lost the plot with increasingly stupid and pointless stunts which became more and more desperate. The helicopter-landing-on the-roof finale was pathetic.

I think it kinda proves the ridiculous point in comparing cars in style some people do.
My Skoda is better than you Maybach, because it is for 5 people etc.

I believe JC was being quite a lot ironic.

I think JC is right with his opinion, that the Yeti is a really good car. Surely the car isn´t faster than a Ferrari, but it´s fast enough with this 160 hp engine. It is by all means better than the VW Tiguan. It´s more spacious, more agile and it costs much less than the VW.

I've suspected for quite a while that buying a Škoda is a cheap way of buying a Volkswagen ... but with better quality.

I'd love one, but Skodas aren't sold here.

Nowadays the rates for shipping cars over that Atlantic are low, so the costs are no problem fore the import - but what's up with passing the US traffic-registration-laws?

It's almost impossible to take an existing car and bring it into compliance with US regulations if it was not originally designed to meet them. In 1993, a company called CXA managed to "federalize" the Citroen XM. They had to make 200 modifications to each car, the price ended up at over $50,000 and they sold less than twenty cars.

But there is the possibility to get a registration for classic cars. How old they had to be for that?
There are such rules, because the three actially K 70, known in the USA, got an US-registration without bigger problems (the last import was in 2001, brought from Germany by an retired serviceman)
The best of the three:

http://wn.com/Our_USA_VW_K70
(now owned by a in the USA well-known VW-collector)

I just cannot find a pic from the marathonmetallic car from New Jersey. @rljuna2: on that K 70 someone had once mounted side reflectors ;) And a lookalike "US-bumper" - nothing more than using the holders for the 1974-Sweden-version (bigger distance for the lamp washer-system) :)

To get in under the classic car exemption the car has to be twenty-five years old or more. (Canada has a similar rule with fifteen years as the minimum).

I've found an article that covers all the rules for importing non-compliant cars into the US:

I wonder if he genuinely liked this car or he was just trying to be funny.

0-60 in 8 seconds is impressive for something that looks like this (and only has a 1.8 litre engine)

Yes but you can actually get a Tiguan this year unlike the Yeti.

It's worth mentioning that even before Clarkson hailed it the Yeti had a massive waiting list. Now it has a waiting list Ferrari or Aston Martin would kill for.

It is probably the best car in this crossover segment.

Apparently at least two cars were used.

If 4WD and sporty diesel performance is not needed then something like a Fiat Cubo would be far more practical in every sense than the Yeti

@Sandie: a few days ago there was a press-notice by Volkswagen: it's not possible any more to order a new Tiguan for this MY. All dealers are informed, not to make any contracts any more.
The plant's capacity is full until the summer-vacations. After them the new version will be released.

Are you talking about the streetlamp behind it?

The Tiguan looks the same as the whole VW range, it's becoming bland. The Yeti at least manages to have a distinctive look.

@m.pfaffeneder: I know it, my wife thought about one, but the price is too high. She already made the most economic choice: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/577/img0520vy.jpg/

@93montero: this pic was made in the USA, the architecture in the background is not European.

@chicomarx: three weeks ago I'd been with an external expert to a claims-review. By entering his car I said "Oh, the brand new Tiguan?" - "Hum. No. It's the Touareg" :whistle: So bland they are...
