Our take on Mitsubishi Cedia Select 2012
Mitsubishi offers very selected lineup of cars in India through its tie-up with Hindustan Motors and does not churn out high volumes of sales. These products are targeted more towards the elite buyers with very few variants and engine options to choose from. The 2012 Mitsubishi Cedia Select is also one such fully loaded offering which does not offer a diesel engine variant unlike most cars in this segment. This car is meant for enthusiasts who want a high performance car with rally tested reliable engine and highly sport performance and lots of bells and whistles when it comes to gadgetry. With the on-road price of close to Rs. 10 Lakhs in Delhi, this car is still a lucrative buy for enthusiasts.
