Drive confident in the Mitsubishi Lancer
It's been around for more than 40 years, has been well received in worldwide markets under several names and is now in its ninth generation, but the Mitsubishi Lancer is as fresh as ever.
Available in sedan and hatchback models with 2-litre and 4-litre manual or automatic petrol engines, with the same set-up across the basic range (front-wheel drive, four doors), it's a tried and tested vehicle for both roads and rallying with a lot going for it. This car is in a league of its own.
Mitsubishi is a name that speaks quality. Their bold and sporty designs stand out and demand attention and this is especially true with the Lancer.
Which Lancer model
The 2002 and onwards versions represent good value and quality, with many options to suit different driving styles and needs. You'll find most, including older Mitsubishi models with a manual or automatic transmission.
The very earliest of the modern Lancers is the CG series, which has a 2-litre engine. It was followed by the CH series which featured 16-inch alloy wheels and the stiffer suspension styling and gear shift from the Lancer Evolution rally model, suiting drivers who like to work for the experience.
Engine upgrades in later models
Engine upgrades came to all Lancers in 2005, with the 2.4-litre engine. The models from this time, the ED, LS and VR-X, really upped the ante in terms of looks inside and out, and added top-of-the-range audio and climate control systems. For those who want to look the part and spend a long-time driving, these are the Mitsubishi Lancers to look out for.
Since 2007, further upgrades to the engines, bodywork and technology have been implemented. Manual or CVT, sedan and Sportback bodies, and luxury features are all among the updates. Several special models of the Mitsubishi Lancer are also available. Discover them all and find the perfect Mitsubishi Lancer for you.
