It's got more than a hint of 350z/TT about it dont you think? Which is a good thing. Front wheel drive layout is dissapointing as is the power output given the capacity of the engine. Generally speaking I dont find Mitsubishi build cars as well as their rivals. Have you considered a Mazda MX5?

I like Japanese cars but I might be prejudice (Currently driving a '93 Honda Accord Inspire that never misses a beat, I bought it over 3 years ago with the intention of replacing it after a few months when it died ).

350Z and 2000 model TT is spot on... (edit: just saw front end pics looks like the old japanese Mitsu FTO's cross Hyundi Lantra).
I thought the 350Z were nice, but have awful blind spots making it difficult to drive. Haven't driven a TT, but like them... SHIT - just give me a Mazda RX8 out of this type of sports care any day, except i hate the centre console which runs all the way to the rear seat - but oh well, not sitting in back!!

I think I will take a 2001 model CLK430 or E240 when I arrive. Out of my price range in Australia, but not in UAE

It's quite a nice car but if I'm honest it didnt tick the right boxes for me because it was neither earth shatteringly fast nor perticularly agile (Well that combined with the fuel and oil consumption and biting my nails about the tip seals), but if I needed rear seats it'd be the one to have.

Pontiac Solstice perhaps? Not renouned for being fast or agile (compared wityh an MX-5) and is a little more expensive than an Eclipse but there is something about its looks .


I've never driven it though so Jury is out, test it and descide for yourself.

I would accuse it of being a Jag rip-off, look how many areas it looks like the old XK and F-type concept. But then I thought the new XK shared many common design points with a Hyundai Coupe .
