Vti (manual) n Steermatec are as quick as the Baleno if not quicker
Rest dont even stand a chance. 1.6 eminent is auto, wont even get close. Lancer has the power but too much weight. Corolla 1.6 if manual could jump off the line quicker than the baleno but then baleno would kill it in the 2nd gear.
p.s Corolla manual can compete with the steermatec in a 1/8 mile drag but not in a 1/4 mile.
