I presume you want a driver's car since you have shortlisted a lancer. but mind it my friend, the diesel heart of lancer is no fun at all. It is sluggish to say the least. After driving Getz CRDI you'll feel like crawling in a diesel lancer. Petrol version would be a better choice.I have owned a petrol lancer for 3 years and believe me every drive was awesome to say the least. The feedback from the steering wheel is spot on. Octavia would be a better choice but finding a clean example would be hard. If you are open to other options then I would like to suggest elantra CRDI + petes box, a killer of a combo.
