The Mitsubishi Lancer first hit the streets in 1973. Over the past three decades the Lancer has evolved into a sports machine like no other, turning heads on city streets and rally courses alike. After nine generations of development, MMC?s passion for driving has created a blend of power, performance and aerodynamics. Mitsubishi Motors Research and Development?s concept for the Lancer EX is to have a commanding appearance, which is characterized by a highly refined sporty sedan design. MMC?s R&D team worked toward bringing these concepts to life at every stage in the development. It was essential to develop styling that would clearly assert itself even within the extremely competitive compact sedan segment, a commanding appearance that will make heads turn and a character that would be instantly recognizable even from afar.
“Top of the Line” LANCER EX GTA is a compact sedan like no other. Equipped with Dual Stage 7-airbag system, Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS), High Intensity Discharge (HID). Punctuated by the side air dams, rear spoilers and top of its class 18-inch wheels.
This 6-speed INVECS-III CVT Transmission with Sportronic didn’t left any stone unturned, having a Rockford Fosgate Premium Audio System, Magnesium Alloy Paddle Shifters, Auto Rain Wiper Sensor and Auto Lighting Control.
The all-new Lancer EX features an all-new 4B11 engine. This new DOHC engine is 27 kilos lighter than its predecessor, due to its all-aluminum engine block and composite valve cover. MIVEC technology (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve Timing Electronic Control) controls cam phasing/timing of both intake and exhausts cams, which results to high performance, good fuel economy, and a fatter power and torque band. Maximum power for this EURO 2 compliant engine is 155 PS at 6,000 rpm and maximum torque of 199 Newton-meter is achieved at 4,250 rpm.
Jet fighter-inspired front grille and slim headlight design contributes to the sporty character and confident stance, add also the Aggressive Front Face and Aerodynamic bodylines plus Projector Type High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps with Multi-reflector Adaptive Front-Lighting System.
The Lancer EX’s Interior is centered on the driver, including an intuitive cockpit layout, dynamic carbon fiber-accent design, and inviting racing-style red information display and function controls. Paddle shifters and audio controls have also been incorporated within the steering area, giving you the control you want without ever needing to take your eyes off the road ahead.
Mitsubishi Motors has also raised the bar inside the all-new Lancer EX. When you sit on the Lancer EX GT-A?s sport type seats, you will first notice 3-spoke leather wrapped steering wheel with integrated audio controls and magnesium alloy paddle shifters similar to the Outlander. The dashboard is complemented with a carbon-look accent strip, which stretches from side to side. All the controls, dials of the auto-climate system, and buttons have been simplified and well located offering an uncluttered personal space. Beyond the steering wheel, two sporty analog gauges flank the multi-information display monitor that displays the odometer, trip meters, outside temperature, engine coolant temperature, fuel level, average fuel economy, kilometer range, maintenance reminder, and a thoughtful rest reminder.
