Hindustan Motors has launched the new Mitsubishi Cedia Select 2012 with a host of new features which have transformed the slick sedan into a power-house of communication-on-move. The new Cedia Select 2012 is available in three colours namely White Speed, Black Flash and Rally Red. It is priced at Rs. 8.90 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi).
The changes include a portable 7-inch Mapmyindia android-based tablet with 3G connectivity, in-built map and real time navigation system, and up to seven hours of talk time. The Cedia carries over the 4-speaker Kenwood DVD player with 6.1 inch touch-screen from the older Cedia Sport, it is GPS compatible and has Bluetooth/USB connectivity. A new rear-view camera is also offered, and its video output is seen on the audio screen.
The interior updates include a three-spoke black leather wrapped steering wheel, oyster leather seat covers, two-tone beige interiors, beige floor mats and climate control AC. Safety-wise, it has twin airbags. Changes on the outside include 12-spoke alloy wheels, high-intensity halogen headlamps and horizontal-slat matte black grille.
Having equipped with the all new features, it certainly becomes more competitive now, which will help it stand against the existing players including the Honda City, Nissan Sunny, the Vento and others. Still, what might keep it behind is once again the petrol heart under the hood, as the recent sales figures have made it clear that the consumers are now moving towards the diesel variants.
