i dont think HM will ever launch a 1.8 turbo lancer but they may launch the lancer 1.8 with a manual box soon along with a new 1.6 lt engine

i read about the mitsubishi carisma but i have not heard about the 1.8 turbo lancer,1.8 lancer is already here,but if the car comes here anyway i dont think the car will find many takers.

Guys,

Just spoke to the HM dude in the Chennai car plant. Tere are plans for the 1.8 diesel turbo, but no plns for any petrol turbo.

They have plans to launch the CEDIA based platform as the new lancer with either a 1.8 or 2 litre engine. Has not been decided as yet. But I can confirm that there will be no 1.8 turbo petrol Lancer. Very Sad. Would have loved to pick up one of those.
