SAME LOOKS BUT NEW FEA­TURES

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Drive Way -

THERE’S not much dif­fer­ent about the looks of Mit­subishi’s Lancers for 2015, but they’ve had a model reshuf­fle, gained some new fea­tures – and their prices have been pruned.

The Lancer, in five vari­a­tions, has long been a solid per­former in the small car class and own­ers tend to stick with the brand.

Prices now start from $18,990 for the ES Sport sedan man­ual with a 110kW 2.0-litre 4-cylin­der en­gine, four-wheel in­de­pen­dent sus­pen­sion and 16-inch al­loy wheels.

It’s well specced with cli­mate con­trol air­con, Blue­tooth hands free and audio stream­ing with voice con­trol, seven airbags and sports body kit with rear spoiler and side body skirts as stan­dard.

Next up is the $20,990 LS sedan, which adds a 6.1-inch colour touch screen, rev­ers­ing cam­era, Smart Key tech­nol­ogy, leather fac­ing seats, heated front seats and power ad­justable driver’s seat.

Re­plac­ing the VRX sedan is the new XLS, which starts from $26,490.

It has a 125kW 2.4- litre 4cylin­der en­gine, 9- speaker Rock­ford Fos­gate sound sys­tem, 7- inch colour touch screen with 3D nav­i­ga­tion map­ping and SD card in­put, au­to­matic rain sens­ing wipers, elec­tro- chro­matic rear view mir­ror, dusk sens­ing head­lights, elec­tric fold­able door mir­rors, 18- inch al­loy wheels and sports sus­pen­sion.

The same pow­er­plant is in the $21,990 GSR Sport­back which also has the 18-inch al­loys but gets side air dams, rear sports spoiler and sports-style front seats and sports ped­als.

It also has a rev­ers­ing cam- era, voice ac­ti­vated Blue­tooth with audio stream­ing and cli­mate con­trol air­con.

Au­to­matic trans­mis­sion is a $2000 op­tion across ES, LS and XLS sedan and GSR Sport­back mod­els. All mod­els also get door mir­rors with built-in in­di­ca­tor lights, Emer­gency Stop Sig­nal and new door trims.

The Lancer Ral­liart and Evo high per­for­mance mod­els are also con­tin­ued, with prices start­ing from $37,990 for the fiery Ral­liart and $52,990 for the su­per­hot Evo.

The 2015 Lancers have more fea­tures and lower prices.
