Mitsubishi is introducing a brand-new Lancer trim that will act as a last encouragement for the sedan that is selling slowly.
The 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer Limited Edition goes on sale later this month for $19,795. Slotting simply above the base ES 2.0, the Limited Edition includes black treatments to the 16-inch wheels, roofing system, upper front grille garnish, fender garnish, and door mirrors. A Limited Edition badge and a sunroof are likewise added.
More fascinating is the custom black-and-red interior. Looking in the cabin, you’ll discover sport seats and red stitching on the steering wheel, shift knob, brake lever, arm rest, and door trim. A black headliner, gloss black accents, and aluminum pedals finish the appearance. As for the technology, Apple’s CarPlay feature is provided on a 6.5-inch screen. The model also includes Android Auto, LCD multi-information display, and a rearview camera.
Under the hood sits a known 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder engine creating 148 hp and 145 lb-ft of torque. A CVT is the only available gearbox on the Limited Edition trim.
The Limited Edition Lancer will be available for the rest of the model year. Earlier this year, Mitsubishi verified it would cease the Lancer in August. Moving forward, the automaker will focus greatly on crossovers and plug-in hybrid innovation that it will share with Nissan.
