Mitsubishi Lancer now with added value
The Mitsubishi Lancer 2.0 GLS sedan has been upgraded with a number of features that provide added value without an increase in the selling price of R239 900. Among the standard features now are: Bluetooth, seven airbags, a reversing camera and touch screen to control the audio system.
There are no changes in interior or exterior appearance of the Lancer, but the extra features make for a very appealing option for those looking for a well-equipped, five-seater car with two-litre power.
The Mitsubishi Lancer shares the same platform with the iconic Evo X as well as the ASX and Outlander SUVs.
The Mitsubishi Lancer’s list of standard equipment includes a temperature controlled air conditioner, a multi-function steering wheel, which now incorporates hands-free Bluetooth voice control together with steering audio controls. Other standard features include a high resolution reversing camera, central touch screen for audio settings and a USB port. Keyless entry and an alarm-immobiliser are other standard features, with an auto-on/off feature for the headlamps.
The rear seat backrest is split 60:40 to offer versatile loading options for the spacious luggage compartment.
The 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that powers the Lancer delivers 110kW of power at 6 000rpm and 197Nm of torque at 4 200rpm. Drive is through a 5-speed manual transmission while consumption is claimed at an average of 7.0 litres/100km during a combined cycle drive.
Safety is taken care of courtesy of seven airbags – driver, passenger, seat, curtain and driver’s knee airbags. Other safety equipment includes anti-lock brakes, electronic brake force distribution, brake-assist and halogen headlights with front fog lamps.
The Mitsubishi Lancer is covered by a 3-year/100 000km warranty and a 5-year/100 000km service plan with servicing every 15 000km.
