Mitsubishi Lancer gets upgrade

Mitsubishi Lancer

The compact Mitsubishi Lancer sedan which offered crisp styling and sharper handling than almost anything else in its segment when it launched back in 2007, has been upgraded to provide added value to customers without an increase in the selling price.

Mitsubishi Lancer Sedan – Features

The Mitsubishi Lancer exterior and interior remain unchanged, however, the model receives a higher level of standard specification and extra features such as a temperature controlled air conditioner, a multi-function steering wheel with hands-free Bluetooth voice control and steering audio controls, a high resolution reversing camera, central touch screen for audio settings and a USB port, Keyless entry, and an auto-on/off feature for the headlamps. The front and rear independent suspension ensures good handling and road holding with attractive 16 inch alloys wheels.

As before, the Lancer is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that delivers 110kW of power at 6000 rpm and 197Nm of torque at 4200 rpm. Drive is through a five-speed manual transmission which achieved an average of 7litres/100km during a combined cycle drive.

“We listened to our customers in terms of specification improvements they wanted to see on Lancer and now we are pleased that we have been able to bring a much-improved medium size car to market in South Africa,” said Jaco Oosthuizen, CEO of Mitsubishi Motors SA.

As with all Mitsubishi Lancer models, the upgraded Sedan comes standard with seven airbags, anti-lock brakes, electronic brake force distribution, brake- assist and halogen headlights with front fog lamps.
