New Mitsubishi Lancer To Be Launched In The UK - Standard Features | Part Two

New Mitsubishi Lancer

Mitsubishi Lancer

In the highly-competitive and cost-conscious C-segment of the market, value-for-money is fundamental, so Mitsubishi Motors UK has chosen to give its customers the full package; standard 15" alloy wheels, metallic paint, air conditioning, CD player, keyless entry, colour-keyed electric door mirrors with defoggers, front fog lights, power door mirrors, height adjustable driver’s seat, 60/40 split back rest and rear adjustable headrests. Both the Lancer estate and saloon get a distinctive colour-keyed rear spoiler with high mount stop lamp.

The range-topping 2.0-litre Lancer Sport estate gains 16" alloy wheels, Momo 3-spoke leather wrapped steering wheel, sports type front seats, CD auto-changer, sports type grille and a lowered suspension.

Passenger safety is also a significant feature of the new Lancer range, all models coming with standard front SRS airbags for driver and passenger, side airbags, side-door impact bars and anti-trapping power windows front and rear.

In terms of driving dynamics, the Lancer is fitted with independent suspension all-round, with Macpherson front struts and a multi-link set-up at the rear. ABS with EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution) is included across the range, as are 15" ventilated front and 14" solid rear disc brakes.

Now in its 9th generation, the launch of the Lancer in the UK signifies Mitsubishi’s return to the C-segment. On-sale across Europe since August 2003, the Lancer has sold 33,565 units so far this year and is Mitsubishi’s second highest-selling European model after the L200 pick-up. Mitsubishi Motors UK plans to sell 3,000 units in 2005, over two-thirds of which are expected to be Lancer estates.
