Evo X coming to India.

The Japanese automobile company Mitsubishi Motors is all set to enter the luxury sedan category with its new model, Lancer Evolution X. The launch of the car, also known as Evo 10, will be preceded by that of Outlander sports utility vehicle (SUV).
While the SUV will be made at Mitsubishi's Chennai facility and unveiled in the 2nd half of 2008, the Evo X will be fully imported resulting in a price tag of Rs 21.70 to 23.5 lakh. With this price band, the automobile is expected to be come in direct competition with other cars like Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Skoda Superb, Volkswagen Passat, Nissan Teana & Audi A4.
The USP of Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X will be its rugged engine and smooth driving experience, rather than exterior looks. The car is a four-door, five-seater one, which is run by a 2-litre engine that gives out 295 bhp power (in other words, more powerful than the 3-litre engine). It has an aluminum engine block under the hood, which makes it pretty lightweight. To add on to the experience of driving Lancer Evolution X, Mitsubishi has fitted it with a four-wheel drive (4WD) option also. It can be expected by early 2009.
