Official: Mitsubishi Cedia Sports goes off the shelves in India. We are heartbroken!

Added in: News


We wonder why do all the good things have to come to an end? It has been sometime since it was first said that HM-Mitsubishi have discontinued the production of Cedia Upper C Segment sedan.


It may be noted that the Cedia is closely related to the earlier generation of Mitsubishi Lancer and has seen a facelift and many variants in Indian market. Earlier known as the Lancer Cedia, the Cedia later lost the Lancer moniker and was relaunched with a new front end along with a good price drop. Mitsubishi India never gave us an official word about halting the Cedia Sports’ production. However, a customary glance at Mitsubishi India’s website shows us that the carmaker has indeed said goodbye to one of the most talked about C segment sedan among the boy racers and performance driving enthusiasts.

With the axing of the Sports variant of the Cedia, the Cedia goes completely off the shelves in India. It may be noted that the carmaker earlier did away with other variants of the sedan. (Read: Cedia Select and Spirit).

The Mitsubishi Cedia Sports came equipped with a rear spoiler, skirts, Momo Steering, Sparco pedals and OZ alloy wheels.


Combined with the 2.0 litre MIVEC motor and great road manners, the above bits made the Cedia Sports every boy racer’s dream. The car had so much of appeal going for it that yours truly bought one last year!

The Cedia’s 2.0 Naturally Aspirated motor pumps out a moderate 115Bhp but has a class leading torque of 178Nm. Mated to the free revving motor is a 5 speed manual ‘box that offers slick shifts and a linear power delivery.

The Mitsubishi Cedia has been a success in various Indian car rally championships and is also a tuner’s delight with its mod friendly mechanicals.

It is indeed saddening that the car will no longer be sold. However, this is the right time to rush to the dealerships if you have always wanted to have a Cedia parked in your driveway. It is being said that there is still some stock of Cedia Select left with the dealers and these cars are going for a huge discount.

The Baleno, the Octy RS, the Civic, the Kizashi and now, the Cedia- Truly end of an era.

    Oh BTW the Price is 10L OTR with corporate registration, which is close to double of individual regn…

    Booking it!!! Too much in love, did not think i would like a car so much, but to be fair it does handle like a bike….

  • Make him a last offer and walk away if he is not interested to sell you that car. Remember, the Cedia is one great car to drive but at the end of the day, it has been a dud seller. Has poor resale value and after-sales isn’t all that great too. Look for used if at all you dont want anything but a Cedia. You might find great deals going for this car.

    He confirmed today about stop in production but not budging from the Quote 🙁

    Is this the reason why Mistsubishi never took up? Although i have to mention that the SA was a gazillion times better than the othe brands I have interacted with during the hunt for a car. VW is pathetic to say the least, Renualt guys have no clue on what they are selling (Looking out for a petrol Duster), Honda dealers think saying Honda is a good enough answer for everything, Ford is a one trick pony, with EcoSport playing the Pony now. Did not have the guts to encounter a Skoda.

    The Mitsubishi Guys were pleasant, open & very very knowledgeable on what they are selling, but not really bothered if a customer walks out.

    P.S: Cannot stand the sight of a Hyundai so no comments on that, although they did try to sell a diesel verna, when i was clear that i will not be caught dead in a diesel….

  • 10.6 on road is like he is offering no discounts at all. My dad bought the Sports for approx 11 OTR, back when the car was officially on sale. You can easily haggle him down to something like 9 lakhs OTR. . Remember, the car is no more on sale in India.
