Mitsubishi revamped the Lancer in the late 2000’s. These models have a flatter front end that gives the cars a touch of character. In fact, the vehicle's entire exterior is reworked and appeals to those looking for an alternative to the Toyota or Nissan midsize sedan.
Base models are equipped with fabric seats, radio tuner, power windows, manual seats, 16-inch steel rims, keyless entry and driver side airbags. The extras list drastically increases to include larger rims on each corner, ABS, Brake Assist, cruise control, paddle shifters, keyless start premium sound system, dual front airbags, sunroof and media inputs.
2016 models sport a different face that is much tighter than previous years further defining the vehicle's character.
GCC countries also sold the previous model shapes up until 2012. In 2013, they replaced it with the Lancer Fortis that comes stock with fabric seats, powered accessories, front airbags, disc brakes and steel rims. There are optional extras that include alloys and fog lights.
Evolution X took over from the previous Evo models. With the original body visible, once again the Japanese brand cut holes in the bonnet and finely reshaped the bodywork to create every teenager's fantasy.
With a sportier interior, these cars have an array of features on offer including BBS rims, internal storage device, navigation, Ralliart Body kit and all the features from the top trim Lancer. Unfortunately, in 2016, these models were taken out of production and their fate is unknown.
Power is drawn from a 1.5-litre of 2-litre four cylinder petrol engine mated to either a manual, automatic or CVT transmission. Fortis models are powered a 1.8-litre four cylinder petrol motor powering the front wheels and is exclusively available with a CVT.
Evo models are powered by a 2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder motor mated to semi-automated six-speed SST twin-clutch transmission.
