Hi all,

Big life change at the moment, just moved with the wife from a life time in the UK into southern Netherlands (URL=https://maps.google.nl/maps?q=delft+the+netherlands&hnear=Delft,+Zuid-Holland&gl=nl&t=m&z=12]Delft[/URL] since you ask
) for a new job, new house, and in February a third member of the family. So unfortunately my beloved Ford Puma (**** I love that car) needs replacing. We have decided the high riding position and space of an SUV/crossover is our preference.

Now the Netherlands is a fascinating place when it comes to cars, and especially tax. Road tax is linked to weight and fuel of vehicle. A petrol car of between 951kg and 1050kg comes to ‚¬420 annually. Each 100kg bracket adds roughly ‚¬100 and with SUVs/crossovers hitting at least the 1351kg bracket that's around ‚¬812 in tax. If you go for a equivalent weighted vehicle in Diesel and you can throw another ‚¬250 on top.

So, as you can see, the petrol Yeti at 1245kg is a very attractive option! In fact, here in Netherlands you can only buy the petrol 1.2 (manual or DSG), presumably because a) larger engines are heavier and b) no one buys a diesel.Cars in general are far more expensive over here too, so the entry level 'Sprint' is ‚¬22,990; 'Sprint Pro' is ‚¬24,990 and the newer 'Adventure' is ‚¬25,991. Dealers don't seem to have any interest in bargaining either so far - any Dutch members who can give tips/experience would begratefullyreceived!

Sorry, I've nattered on for a while now. My key questions really were to see if there are any other Dutch members on here and gain some advice. There is a one month old 'demo' version of an 'Adventure' with extras included of 'parking sensors' (something I really want coming from a little Puma) and MDI connector for ‚¬23,900. Given the saving of ‚¬2,000 for being 'secondhand' plus the parking sensor (‚¬335) and MDI (‚¬140), I'm very tempted, but given the new version is around the corner and the Adventure comes with the bizarre seat covers and the lesser satnav system (Amundsen) I don't know... please, somone slap some sense into me

Welcome to the forums. It sounds like the authorities there actively discourage vehicle ownership. The main differences with the facelift seem to be mainly cosmetic such as body panels, headlights, steering wheel and trim. The biggest mechanical change is with the all-wheel drive version which has the next generation Haldex clutch in it but that is about it. Of course it also has any updated parts (hopefully the 77 TSI ignition lead grounding problem is fixed for good) and software enhancements that the older models may not have. I think your expense will be rewarded though when you get to drive your Yeti whichever one you choose. Enjoy!

Thanks for the input. I've been pouring over the UK site to look at the specs of the new ones (still no info on the Dutch version) and quite like some of the new 'little things'. The parking sensors are quite important for me and If I'm going to splash the cash on a secondhand adventure, I may as well stump up an extra 5-6k to get a brand spanking new one.

Now I've been through the SE and Elegance spec lists and must say god bless Skoda for making it easy to copy/paste into Excel. Quick spot of removing duplicates and some lookups and below is the list of all features mentioned across the two lists, and which lists it is mentioned in (Y=Yes, it appears; N=No, it doesn't appear). Some functions are catered for differently in each listso the table makes it appear that Elegance is 'missing' the "Dimming breakaway interior rear view mirror" whereas it actually has the "Auto dimming rearview mirror". But this aside, there are a couple of items in the SE and not in the Elegance list that I would expect. For example:
- Daylight running lights
- Headlight range adjustment
- Indicators integrated into door mirrors
and most bizarrely...
- Windscreen wiper with intermittent control (4 speed)

The full list is below in case anyone is interested, but does anyone have any idea whether the above are actually missing from the Elegance or just missed off the list?

Also, if anyone is interested, I did a similar exercise with the lists of extras to help me work out if it was better to get the SE and add things or the Elegance and add less things. For my needs (well, must haves and nice to haves

- Daylight running lights
- Headlight range adjustment
- Indicators integrated into door mirrors
and most bizarrely...
- Windscreen wiper with intermittent control (4 speed)

The full list is below in case anyone is interested, but does anyone have any idea whether the above are actually missing from the Elegance or just missed off the list?

Here in the UK daylight running lights are compulsory on new cars, there is no headlight range adjustment as the Xenons on the Elegance self level and the beam changes shape according to speed, there are indicators in the mirrors, there is a rain sensor so when the wipers are on intermittent the speed and delay adjust automatically to suit the rain and vehicle speed, the wipers also stop in light rain when the car is stationary and re start as you pull away.

If you buy a vehicle without Hill Hold Control enabled, but then want it turned on, then it is easy to activate and adjust through VCDS....just in case you want to travel to the Alps or somewhere hilly.

Thanks for all the explanations and reassurances. And I've been wondering why so many drivers of shiny new cars put their lights on in the day... now I know!

Good to know - certainly hill hold control is not something you need here in Netherlands particularly often!

Hi trickyJust a few more things spring to mind if you are thinking of going new, do you get the option of getting Urban or Outdoor version of the Yeti? + if you can't get a good deal in Holland can you find another continental dealer that will sell you a Yeti with "Dutch type approval"?
EG. Over here I got about £4k off a new vehicle making it no more expensive than some used cars. Mind you I have to wait a mighty long time to get it!

Hi, Just come back from the Belgium / Dutch border near Eindhoven. My step daughter live in Belgium and works in Holland as does her chap. Both diesil and the supermarkets are cheaper in Belgium - they always try to fill up in Belgium. Naturally how relevent this is depends how far South is Southern Netherlands.

My brother in law lives in Aachen, the price of fuel goes up and down during the day!!! He often goes to Belgium to fill up because of the price difference. I went to Eindhoven quite a few years ago so see Evolian (excuse spelling) which was an exhibition run by Phillips in a futuristic looking building, it closed down years ago I often wonder if the building is still there.

Thanks Lucvervust, that's just how I remembered it, in its former life it really was a good day out.

Holidaying in Germany last year I noticed the price of fuel altering up and down by quite a bit from morning to evening. It certainly made finding a cheaper tank full complicated!

Thanks for all the input and comments, fuel prices do indeed seme pretty high!

Yeti price list is now finally released over here and looking to order. BUT... one of the features I was holding out on (versus buying one of the 'Adventure' versions of the old model) was the rear camera. Apparently it'll be unavailable for 4-5 months minimum, whereas the car itself is expected in 6-8 weeks if ordered without.

Does anyone have the rear camera, and if so, do you find it useful? Coming from a 2001 Ford Puma, the front and rear sensors are a big leap forward but as we're aiming to keep the car for next 8-10 years I don't want to be missing anything!

Advice always gratefully accepted.

I went for the Adventure - a rear parking sensor was a big step up from the lack of anything on my Fabia VRS BUT I would have liked the camera. Still no options possible on the Adventure - I do findthe sensor very effective though.

Thanks both for your input. With baby due in 5 weeks we've decided to take the plunge and got back from the dealer this evening. One shiny black, outdoor elegance 1.2 TSI on order, hopefully here shortly after baby. Since there was no camera, second best option... opted for the jumbo sunroof so I can stick my head out the roof


Looking forward to becoming an active member of this friendly forum


Thanks again to all for your input.
