i really like the sporty look of the mitsubishi EX im getting the manual..you think the engine of the 1.6 ex is under power for its size?Tnx for the reply sir
I'm not entirely sure. I'm judging by the looks of it so I may be wrong or I may be right. It's like watching a skinny guy carry a backpack heavier than his body. Though he can carry it, he may have a hard time doing so. My Honda City 1.5 liter has more than enough for the size of its body. The 1.3 is under power. If you were to put the 1.5 liter engine on the Civic, however, then it will really be under power. That's why the Civic has a 1.8 liter engine as a base. It makes a lot of difference. The Civic is the same class as the Lancer and that's the reason why I think it's under power with a 1.6 and the Lancer I think is heavier than the Civic.
Kung kaya naman sa budget, then I'd go for the 2 liter instead because of the engine and other add-ons.
Anyways, the Lancer EX is a really good car choice in terms of the looks. It may be outdated, but it can still catch stares of pedestrians. Consider also other factors not just looks though like maintenance, fuel consumption, and resale. With the Lancer EX, it's above average so you can't go wrong with it.
