Ooops.. forgot to add there are few more we could expect this year :

Aston Martin
Citroen C5, C6
Fiat Idea
New Honda Accord
Jaguar X,S
Suzuki Grand Vitara
New S class
New M class
Porsche Cayman

These all cars are expected this year but ,i doubt whether we 'll be able to see all these beauties on our roads within this year ..

Skoda is going to launch the all new Fabia in 2007. Makes sense to hold off Fabia launch till then.

ye haryan, it's called the mitsubishi lancer cedia to mainly compete with the corolla, elantra and the octavia. it'll roar with it's 2000cc, 1.8L, 125bhp engine. And it would be sporting the interiors of an evo. Still wondering about how the car gonna compete with the likes of the above mentioned competitors in terms of looks....the best word to describe it would be - "ORDINARY"!
