I completely agree. What on earth were they thinking while redesinging? Couldn't have made it look any worse

They should have just stuck to the additional features and left the exteriors as such. Made it look horrendous now...

Absolutely not worth the price. HM should go into hiding now that the new Honda city is launched. The car doesnt seem to have changed even a bit. Except for that ugly grille that will shoo customers away.

Nice going Hm any more bright ideas...???

Is this for real ?

Probably(or looks to me that) 2 out of the 5 photographs were taken professionally.

No matter who they are targeting, Im sure a much more decent and quality oriented person would have been entrusted with making official/unofficial marketing material.

Dull Descriptions with ill-matching font and ink colours.I fell off my seat with the "Hi tech Gadgets" tag used on one of those slides.Photographs with more floor tiles showing rather than the car itself.Even the technical pages have got issues!, ive never seen a brochure/handout that is made with a pure white background.

This work is like ones you find on flyers made for sticking on back of public transport busses, only to end up at the chaiwallah who uses them to give a samosa along with the hot tea.

For the dealer, for the trainee , for internal purposes, for the public(i hope not) and for the illiterate even, doesn't matter who this is targeting but I'm sure this aint worth leaving the drawing board.Mitsu should take this seriously with whoever made it cause ultimately its ended up on the net over here for everyone across the world to see!!

Even if most opinions on the so called upgrades are negative,I'm sure a proper presentation would have altered one to think better of the changes!!.Chrome is considered classy(new Logan is using it!),Clear lenses are the in thing,a real FAT Audio/Video system(they end up calling it a "music system" in slide description),New bodykit...nothing wrong with any of these i say.Its the way you/we've been made to look at it.

^ About my above post,not saying that i like or dislike any of the changes , Its just that i expect a better presentation and quality when shelling out 8 Nano's worth of money.I'd be put off even if this was made as reading material to boost me as a sales rep that promotes/sells this car.

Mitsubishi should stop doing useless facelifts of the Cedia and bring on the New Lancer.

The brochure appears to me as poorly made.

atleast they have changed that similing grill which the CEDIA came with originally.I think it would have looked better if this same grill was done in black rather than the chrome finish.

What they needed to do for a facelift was this:

I wouldn't mind if if they put the same engine as that pic, 2.4L 162bhp MIVEC.

Agree that this looks neat and sensible - Looks like the Mitsu guys tried to mix n match exterior features of existing Spirit and Sports - more of chrome and extending the bumbers - result Disaster looks - a.k.a Civic Sports!!

Hmm changed grill looks boring. Yes only welcome change is dvd player and climate control. wonder it would be possible to upgrade existing cars. If yes might go for that.

any news about facelift to sports version? or it is discontinued?

Hey vid, that lancer looks terrific.

wonder why they changed the front to that of the lancer, now it looks like the front is a mix of the lancer and cedia. The old one is much better thank you. But the new centre consol is very very nice. Wish I could change over to that, but I doubt it very much. Lets see how it pans out. Would love to add the new climate control and kenwood DD unit.

The Climate Control is a welcome addition and the HU looks cool.

The seating in the rear was quite low in the current/ outgoing model. Maybe they should consider to better it.
