The one in the pic here looks pretty good. HM knows how to make the lancer looks sporty. I dont like the lancer here but this one looks good.

there was a review of the lancer ralliart in the wheels today. The review was all praises about the car except the performance oriented ride which was not exactly smooth. But the engine in question is a 2.4L 162hp. the base engine here is a 2.0L 120hp which we have here.

The Canadian Lancer is similar to Indias but as usual it produces more horses..

I meant looks of the car here because Engine degrade is a common feature on almost all Indian cars

Guys would like to know if the Lancer Cedia has the underpinnings of an Evolution? Is the Chassis the same or is it different?

the chassis and underpinnings have been derived directly from the evo.

Handling still remains better than rival.

just got a suggestion for HM.

like Honda city's vtec powered car mitsubishi should bring in the lancer Ralliart.


they have it here in canada. three versions in total.

A base version, an OZ rally version which is only show and the rallyart version that is all go alongwith show.

the ralliart has a 2.4ltr 162hp engine. Even if they bring in a 150hp detuned powerplant the car will breath fire here.

HM wake up, its time you jump from 1956 to 2006

Mitsubishi will never get that into India and i am sure about that.

Anywayz not all cars are detuned when bought to India a good example will be the Chevy Optra which has the same engine and horsepower figures world wide.

unfortunately I have to agree with you. HM is losing big business out here.

Lancer Cedia; The red one is the sport ( blacked out headlight, evo typr rear lights, sporty bumper, side skirts, fabric seats, carbon fibre type ints)

White one in pic is teh Elegance.

10.42Lac OTR Kerala

Couldnt test ride it. Its damn spacy than Oct. Comes with a Kenwood MP3 player and 4 15w Speakers. One thing, there's lot of space for a turbo cum intercooler. The engine is damn silent. yuk! Atleast it shoud growl in teh Sport model.














Elegance

The interiors of this car already look dated. I like the lights of the sports version!

The car looks really sporty from the outside. And the only good part about the interiors is the dash. Besides that the quality of the materials is not all that good. Its just OK.

And as long as the Civic doesn't get here, it'll hold up pretty nicely in the market. And 10.5 lacs would put it in the Optra, Octavia, Elantra and the Corolla league. Tough competition i would say....
