Yes. The only rally-breed on Indian roads is Cedia, along with all other wannabe's...
No surprise, it is leading...

It fills me with joy everytime I see a Cedia winning at rally circuits in India. Perhaps, that is the only marketing space it gets without getting highlighted. Those who own it or have driven it knows well what Cedia's capabilities are. Some of us know it very very well.

Doesn't the Cedia have a 2ltr engine while the rest are 1.4-1.6ltrs? Isn't there an engine capacity class like they have in drags?

Recently Karamjith Singh did a 180 on a SX4 and a Cedia (One of the passengers)

In his opinion, he liked the suspension setup of the SX4 when compared to the softer setup of the Cedia. The same has been reflected in the the Sep 2008 AutoCar's anniversary edition.

I am love Mitsu cars. I hope that they are a more aggressive towards the Indian market.

Their pace seem to be a lot slower than Suzuki and Honda.
If you check the Thailand site of Mitsu, it has the EVO. :-(
