Engine Technology
Two petrol and one diesel engine are available for the new Lancer.

The 1.5 litre petrol engine is a VVT MIVEC unit, with VVT on the intake valves and produces a healthy 110 PS. The unit takes the car from 0-62 in 11.6 seconds (14.3 seconds with the auto) and has CO2 emissions of 153g/km combined, VED Band D (168 g/km combined, VED Band E for the auto). Fuel consumption is an excellent 44.14 mpg (40.35 mpg for the auto) on the combined cycle.

The 1.8 litre petrol engine is a brand new DOHC VVT design with VVT on both the intake and exhaust valves. It benefits from 144PS of power and is available with either a 5-speed manual or a new 6-speed CVT automatic transmission. The unit takes the car from 0-62 in 9.8 seconds (11.2 seconds with the CVT auto) and has CO2 emissions of 183g/km combined, VED Band E (188 g/km combined, VED Band F for the auto). You can also complete 36.69 mpg (35.76 mpg for the CVT auto) on the combined cycle.

Finally, a 140PS 2.0 DI-D 16-valve intercooled turbocharged diesel with a 6-speed manual transmission is also available. The power unit is sourced from VW, and has been further enhanced by Mitsubishi’s engineering team to reduce noise, vibration and harshness. Taking the car from 0-62 in 9.6 seconds the unit has CO2 emissions of 165g/km combined, VED Band D. Fuel consumption is 44.83 mpg on the combined cycle.

Styling

The new Lancer styling has been universally praised, having been inspired by the Mitsubishi Concept X that was first shown at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2005. The front of the car was influenced by jet fighter air intakes, with distinctively deep set headlights and taut lines.

Built on a longer wheelbase and wider track – but with a slightly shorter overall length than the previous model, the new Lancer has a more road-hugging attitude that is especially evident with the 18” alloy wheels and the sporty body kit.

Safety

The new Lancer body structure is built around Mitsubishi’s next-generation Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) design. It disperses energy loads during side and rear impacts and controls distortion, enhancing occupant protection and also helping to protect the fuel system during a rear impact.

In addition, the new vehicle makes extensive use of high strength steel in its construction. Compared to the previous generation Lancer it is much more rigid - torsional rigidity has been increased by 56% and bending rigidity by 50%. This has the additional benefit of improving the vehicle handling and ride.

The Lancer’s safety package is extremely comprehensive and includes an advanced dual front air bag Supplementary Restraint System (SRS) with occupant sensors, standard front seat-mounted side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags, plus a driver’s knee airbag.

Furthermore, Active Stability Control (ASC) reduces rotational movement when the vehicle begins to skid, while the traction control prevents wheel spin in slippery conditions.

Colours

The new Lancer range is available in the following colours:
  • Cool Silver (Metallic)
  • Orient Red (Metallic)
  • Thunder Blue (Pearlescent)
  • Amethyst Black (Pearlescent)
  • Stone Grey (Pearlescent)
  • Frost White (Solid)
