Easy win here for the Palio, even if they're not in the same category.

If u wanna look hot, buy the Lancer but, if you wanna be hot, buy the Palio 1.6 GTX.

I vote for the Palio.

the Palio would leave it biting the dust even if it took it on in REVERSE...
Could not put it better.. Well said..

just take all the doors and the boot lid off and there you go with a performance booster equal in weight to the modded lancer with whatever you want..!!


Has to be the Palio 1.6 amazing car..

Well, stock,
i would go for the Palio anyday.
It is faster, much easier to drive, better looking.
The lancer however is just bigger and more comfortable but has PATHETIC build quality.
Modded then lancer anyday.

In stock form...i have to go with the palio...can i have the s10 please without them signatures.

But a well modded lancer will do just fine as well.

However this vote goes to the palio.

Guys... this debate is kinda interesting !! Personally choosing I'd prefer the palio over the lancer but as I'm a proud owner of teh GTX I know how tough it is to get it modded ..lol .. The Lancer has more options I guess ...

But GTX all the way coz if that gets modded it'll whip most of the big guns .... atleast I hope so !!!

cheers

And I am another proud owner of the GTX.......Man and I am in love with it!!

Have a free flow exhaust on it, high performance tyres and an award winning stereo on it (won last years Db drag racing at the ax max expo in Chennai).

Lancer is decades old!

Fiat Palio 1.6GTX for me. It's fast, tough and good looking. Though I like the Lancer, I'm not much of an SFX fan. I'd prefer to get a base model Lancer and shod it with alloys / tyres of my choice and get a good a engine mod job done.

if u don't get a Lancer you are missing one of the world's best modifyable cars.......may not be the fastest but still can be made the fastest amongst the two that is.

Between the two, I'll take the Lancer. Then sell it off. Buy a 1.6GTX and will pocket the difference
