Some parts of the FL look good but it is very "fussy" with lots of square "bits" stuck on, reminding me of the old Ssanyong Musso. Even the boot lid is cluttered with diagonal creases, the painted lip below the rear hatch might need some protection. But at least underneath it is still the Yeti we all like.
No probs plbxr & Banjobach, glad you enjoyed it. I agree with you about the Ssanyong MussoHood, that was a poor vehicle, but nothing to compare with the Rodius, now that is a vile looking machine if ever there was one. They have produced a new Koranda which starts at around £15k, that's a rather better vehicle than the old ones, but to my mind, not a patch on the yeti
It still doesn`t look quite right! Lovely car and excellent video showing it off at it`s best.
Don`t members think that every Tom, Dick or Harry is bringing out a cross-over vehicle nowadays and some from companies that hardly anyone has heard about. The latest that I`ve come across is from Dacia, now owned by Renault and their Dacia Duster starts at £8,995!
I have read reports that for £9K, the Duster is remarkably good value.
I certainly won`t be buying one but I can see that many will be tempted, particularly if there is a dealer close by. I wonder if it will generate a Duster Owners Forum?
Well, I do love the look of the FL and have one on order.
I had Yeti Urban and loved that too, but did not buy that for it's looks but for all it's other qualities and strengths.
It appears that the most negative comments on the FL is the disappearance of the fog lights. Yes, they did make the Yeti look unique in the SUV market, but the face lift is still 99% as per the original, with it's Tonga Toy boxy, rugged shape.
