2016 – MITSUBISHI LANCER GT
The state-of-the-art Mitsubishi Lancer, launched in 2007, has disappeared from many markets because of its poor commercial performance. However, the model continued to be marketed in several countries, such as Brazil and the United States, among some others. And it was precisely in the American market where the Lancer sedan body was given a new restyling, the MY 2016.
Although it remains recognizable, the stylistic changes adopted at the front are detachable, with a new grille that leaves the attractive ‘fighter jet’ that seems to give its last gasp with the Mitsubishi ASX. In its place is used a bumper of design more rounded that divides the grid in two parts. The frames of the antinebline headlamps are also modified by introducing daytime LED lights similar to those of the ASX. The body is also now offered in new colors: pearly white and silver.
In the interior the changes are very discreet, being limited to the tapestries of the versions equipped with fabric banks and the central console with USB input. It is also worth noting that the most basic ES finish in the United States now includes much more standard features such as climate control, alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, foglamps and the new FUSE Hands-free Link System. The line is completed with the finishes SE, SEL and the sporty GT, with a specific regulation of the chassis and a more sportive aesthetics.
The line of engines remains the same, consisting of gasoline options. The least powerful engine, SE finish only, is a 2.0-liter 150-hp aspirated with five-speed manual transmission or a new transmission called CVT8, which has 8 speeds pre-set and according to the brand, improves performance and fuel consumption. Above is the 2.4-liter aspirated 180 hp engine equipped with all-wheel drive and five-speed manual transmission or CVT for the SE, SEL and GT finishes. It disappears from the catalog the interesting version Ralliart with 2.0 Turbo engine of 240 hp with total traction and automatic transmission of double clutch and seven speeds.
