The Mitsubishi Lancer is already a kiwi tradition, but with each new model launch it gets better. Much better. There’s more space throughout, even tighter manoeuvrability, enhanced handling and performance, a healthy serving of very refined features, plus the best safety rating around.
The New Lancer receives a facelift along with a host of changes. The facelift brings an update on the recognizable Lancer face. The new dual split grille frame design along with chrome highlights and sharp front splitter, unifies the front bumper and grille producing an elegant, sporty style. LED DRL’s have been added into the lower bumper for all models.
From the outside, its sharp new looks create a commanding presence. There’s a new sports body kit, new grille and multi spoke 16” alloys.
Inside, there are many luxury features, such as deluxe console, touch screen audio and reversing camera, as well as a leather steering wheel with BluetoothTM.
The driver gets to enjoy the smooth power and surprising economy of the 2.0L MIVEC engine, coupled with the 6-speed CVT transmission with Sports Mode.
All passengers will enjoy the 5-Star ANCAP safety rating, which is thanks to the active and passive safety systems.
Lancer has become a Kiwi tradition. If you haven't owned one, you'll know someone who has. Everything New Zealanders love about Lancer is in the latest models. There's more space throughout, even tighter manoeuvrability, enhanced handling and performance, a healthy serving of very refined features, plus the best safety rating around. There's also a hatch that drives like a dream and is as versatile as it gets. Whichever you choose, you're in for a great ride.
So much of family life happens in the family car, and family is precious. That’s why we’ve made Lancer one of the safest cars in its class. Lancer offers unparalleled safety features as standard across the range, including dual stage drivers, front passenger ad driver’s knee airbags, Active Stability Control with Active Traction Control, ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, SmartBrake and Mitsubishi’s Reinforced Safety Evolution (RISE design), all Lancer models give the reassurance of a 5-star ANCAP safety rating with the addition of side and curtain airbags.
Active Stability Control (ASC)
ASC provides the driver with greater control in tough or sudden cornering situations reducing the chance of over- or under-steer by adjusting engine power and applying the brakes independently on each wheel. What it means for driver and passengers is a tighter and much safer handling experience.
Multi-mode Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD)
Lancer’s intelligent 4-channel, 4-sensor braking system monitors different wheel speed and activates brakes to individual wheels when required. It allows you to keep manoeuvrability under heavy braking and slippery road conditions.
Active Traction Control (ATC)
ATC is an intelligent system that automatically controls engine output so that driving wheels are prevented from spinning. When it senses loss of traction in an independent wheel it automatically applies braking force to that wheel while sending extra power to other wheels with traction to keep you moving.
Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD)
EBD automatically increases rear-braking force on demand, reducing front brake wear and improving fade resistance.
Here’s another innovative feature that’s there just in case. If you unintentionally hit your accelerator pedal as well as your brake in an emergency situation, the new SmartBrake system spots the error, cancels out the message from the gas pedal and puts full concentration on your braking.
The Lancer’s 2.0L MIVEC Aluminum – block engine is an advanced design that’s both lightweight and powerful. It incorporates variable valve lift and timing on both exhaust and intake valves, delivering 115kW’s of power and drivability to meet your needs whatever the circumstances. Coupled to electronic power steering Lancer can achieve 7.3L/100km
INVECS III 6-speed CVT with Sport Mode
Lovers of automatics will be very happy with the INVECS III 6-speed CVT transmission with Sport Mode. It sounds hi-tech, which it is. But to drive, it’s simple as. Basically, CVT uses belts instead of cogs. There are no actual ‘gear changes’ just a seamless delivery of power, and plenty of it. In Sport Mode, you can treat it like a manual and select the gears yourself.
Real road holding
The amount of rally-bred technology that goes into Lancer might seem like overkill. But as you turn into a good sharp corner, or swerve to avoid a sudden hazard, you’ll see why we went to all the trouble. Throughout the range, Lancer’s handling is firm, confident and predicable. It’s also fun, because we think life should be.
