Heres the Mitsubishi Lancer as its sold in Netherlands.
I guess this is a face lifted Lancer and not an Evo-look. The Station Wagon looks good. Why cant HM get in atleast this Lancer. If launched [with the INVECS] , it cud give the Corolla a good run for its money.

P.S. The rear lights of the Station Wagon reminds me of the Indigo SW.

V12,

HM has made it a habit of using the same bodyshell for atleast 5 decades. Give 'em another 40 years and you will see this car sailing on Indian roads. HM = No Initiative

Right Rev. Remember, the Volvo S40 and the Mitsubishi Carisma shared the same underpinnings. It's no surprise if Mitsubishi's Lancer Estate is influenced by the "Master of Estates", Volvo.

Things have moved on, Volvo is now owned by Ford, Mitsubishi's are now partly owned by Merc. The new S40 is made in Belgium and while the forthcoming Colt will be made in Holland unlike the Carisma and old S40 which were built along side each other. They were not regarded as very inspiring cars
