Yes the 1.8 liter engined Indian spec civic will blow away the cedia,even the 2.0 liter civic will leave it to dust.If Mitsubishi had offered the ralliart engines on the cedia like in other countries it would have been as fast as the Laura Petrol
But no car can be compared to the handling characteristics of the cedia,the chassis is the same as that of Lancer Evolution IX in fact these Lancers & cedia's can be converted to Evolution 4,5,8 & 9. They are actually running successfully here in India.(The converted one's)
nice report by TAI! cedia is a great car but IMO it has been pulled away due to collabration with Hindustan Motors, if Mitsu was with some other brand in India they could have performed well in market. bad times for mitsubishi in india, earlier with M&M and now with HM! there is never a big hype in country when Mitsubishi cars launches unlike Hondas and Toyotas.
@RSM, light steering is great for cities, hence a great handling as well.
You are welcome!!
The credit does of course go to both of you!!
Returning to the car ... lap belts only for the rear middle passenger? That is a bit of a let-down.
And for a steering wheel with DAB packaged it, it is really really good looking ... one of the sportiest I have seen!!
Hey great work again Zinam and 350Z. I always loved the Cedia for its sporty nature. You have made me know more about this car now. The car is really sporty indeed. But what disappointed me is the Interiors and a rather ordinary looking instrument console. Otherwise this car is really cool with OZ alloys which comes as standard in sports along with Kenwood touch screen and Momo steering wheels! A good pick for performance enthusiasts!! If they had a better dealership network then they surely have a winner in their hands which is truly worth its price tag.
Absolutely. The features which Lancer Cedia offers are irresistible for any automobile enthusiast, Especially youngsters who are inspired by rallies. Also, The Rs.9.90 Lakhs is neither to less nor to more in comparison with other models in segment and Hindustan Motor’s “One Country, One Price” scheme attracts many. The only part where this car disappoints is the weak dealership network and After Sales & Service. Mitsubishi have some nice, feature rich products in India but they are being slowly killed due to their poor marketing and less attention towards customer service.
