Well, for starters you could give me eight. I'd buy a discounted Lancer Cedia.

With the remaining lakh, you could buy me mods.

Methinks you're sold on the Corolla. Why ask somebody else & remain unhappy?

Go for it.

I think elf's right. Your heart says Corolla although your trying to see if theres anything better.

One question though have you driven the corolla and the cedia? that will make your decision a lot easier.

I have driven Corolla HE and Cedia Select. I found Cedia to be slugish but more loaded as far as the interiors were concerned..

well if you found the cedia to be sluggish then theres no point in taking that. may as well go for the car you liked driving.

Another suggestion try driving a cedia from another showroom. some test drive cars are not in great condition. I will help you make your final decision.

Thanks I will surely do this. I drove Cedia after experiencing Corolla, so my finding it sluggish is when Cedia is compared to Corolla. For that matter I feel Corolla to be more peppier than Civic as well.

Does any member here own cedia and can tell me its cost of maintanence and avg?

I like the interiors of the Cedia, its exactly like the Mitsubishi Evo 7 ... But the exterior takes a beating.. The front head lights look funny... But how is the car....? Is it fun to streeet race in it?

Default Cedia is truly VFM

I have been driving Cedia Select for few months. First things first..how much did I pay for it..9.3 on road price ( good discount from the dealer) in Bangalore. Now I need to know which car at that price would give you 2.0 litre engine / 115 power & 175 torque / 2 airbags / ABS + EBD / 10.5 mileage in city..highest in this segment / 4.9 m turning radius..best in this segment / 175 mm ground clearence..best in segment.

At that price, Honda is offering City ZX that has nothing and absolutely nothing in comparison. Forget the looks and style since it is personal; all Honda and Toyota cars "in India" are overpriced. Ask any Lancer owner, he would tell you proudly that even driving it for more than a lac kms; its engine is as good as it was when it was new. Mitsubishi engines are perhaps the best. They do not provide frills in their cars and given the new price of Cedia, I was all for it.

One could surely buy Honda Civic..pls pay 3.5 lacs extra to get all of those stuff that I highlighted above + that jazz of dashboard.

I must say..we in India buy cars for frills and make ups. No wonder Suzuki kept cheating us with those dinkies all those years. Mitsubishi and HM have made sincere effort with Cedia and I am enjoying the service they provide.

Mods note: Please try to avoid using dots in between sentences. Break them properly as single complete sentence.

^^I dont think there is a single mitsubishi cedia owner who's not completely in love with his(her?) car . Its a fantastic car for the price you pay for it.

You paid 9.3L. Now if you pay 3L what will you get from Mitsu-HM stable? 3L is what most Indians can afford for a car (Reason: Alto is the largest selling car in India).

Can Mitsu-HM combo price a car at 3L, which is not a 'dinky'?

not just the cedia. there aint a single mitsubishi owner who's unhappy with his/her car.

Yes, they are driven to thrill.

So can someone help me understand ? LPG apart from all else, would also mean loss of boot space ?

thanks for the news.
looks like they have reduced prices for the car as well.
boot space will be lost, yes but since its a factory fitment, should be minimal. also gives you an option in terms of economy if required.

The website says "One Country..One Price". Isnt the taxes different across states. So is it possible that "HM" is gaining on the price front in some states?.
