Features of the New 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer //
GEARED TO ANY LIFESTYLE
The 2017 range of the Mitsubishi Lancer offers a wide selection of choices to suit any lifestyle. With a refined exterior and interior, and key feature improvements throughout, Lancer meets the demands of a broad spectrum of drivers. Lancer's styling, machine finished alloy wheels and paint colours make it stand out from the crowd while adding to its legendary status as a driver's car. Wherever your lifestyle takes you, there's a strikingly new Lancer to get you there.
Performance // TIME-TESTED. ROAD-PROVEN
Renowned for its performance and handling, the 2017 Lancer is optimized for both power and efficiency. Its available sports-tuned suspension is matched by Lancer's available industry leading, intelligent All-Wheel Control (AWC) that allows for peak safety and performance under all types of road conditions. Combined with Active Stability Control (ASC) and Anti-lock Brakes (ABS) featuring Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), you'll feel in control, whatever the road throws at you.
Mitsubishi's revolutionary electronically controlled All-Wheel Control (AWC) system3 continually monitors the road and intelligently transfers power and braking to the wheels with the most traction to improve handing and performance— without compromising on efficiency. So whether you're driving on snow or mud, or simply demand topline performance on tight corners, you can rely on All-Wheel-Control to help keep you on track.
TWO EFFICIENT YET POWERFUL MIVEC ENGINES
Lancer offers two MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-timing Electronic Control) engines that deliver the ideal balance of performance and fuel efficiency—the 148-hp, 2.0L engine and the 168-hp, 2.4L.
TWO SMART TRANSMISSIONS
Choose between the efficient, hands-on 5-speed manual transmission, standard on ES 2.0L, or Mitsubishi's CVT (continuously variable transmission), which gives you better acceleration, MPG and responsiveness.
Standard LED running lights and bright halogen headlights improve your visibility while the haze-tackling fog lights help you navigate less-than-ideal driving conditions.
Interior // SMART AND ROOMY
The interior of the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer puts innovation and technology right at your fingertips. Its impressive yet spacious interior is masterfully designed with everything in easy reach letting you experience the pure enjoyment of driving while easily interacting with Lancer's many convenient features. With so much at hand, like voice activated Bluetooth® cellular phone interface, USB connectivity and a host of other innovative features, Lancer is optimized for minimal interruption, so you can safely focus on the drive.
SPORTY INTERIOR STYLING
Enjoy what you drive inside and out. Lancer boasts sporty features like gloss black or mesh-print contrast accents, an optional aluminum shift knob and brake handle, an available sun-soaking one-touch power glass sunroof and more.
LEATHER-WRAPPED INTERIOR ACCENTS
Lancer considers performance and driving dynamics at every detail, even down to the available leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Natural soft-touch materials help you keep a solid grip for a truly enjoyable drive.
SPACIOUS AND CONVENIENT SEATING
Not only does Lancer's cabin provide ample leg and headroom, even in the backseat, its 60/40 rear split seat also makes it quick and easy to reconfigure the cabin to fit your needs, from bringing your friends along for the ride to stowing all types of cargo. Add in the convenient rear cup holders and you've got the ultimate weekend warrior cabin.
HIGH DEFINITION 7" TOUCHSCREEN NAVIGATION
This optional navigation system features a 7-inch HD touchscreen, 3D mapping, road speed limits, expanded Points of Interest (POI) and Mapcare™ with two annual map updates. Don't know where you're going? Quickly look up destinations and get detailed driving directions. Trying to avoid gridlock? Real-time traffic data is just a click away. Have a friend along for the ride? The built-in Diamond Lane Guidance®™ system can find the fastest routes using carpool lanes.
Safety // ABSOLUTE SAFETY AND CONTROL
All 2017 Lancers come standard with a long list of technologically advanced safety features from the seven air bag Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) and Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body construction to the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Active Stability Control (ASC) system. The standard display audio system with rearview camera and available LED daytime running lamps provide a further level of safety and convenience.
5 SEATS, 7 AIRBAGS
In addition to six standard airbags5—including front, front-seat-mounted, and side-curtain airbags—the Lancer adds a seventh underneath the driver's side dashboard, providing extra protection for your lower body and knees.
Active Stability Control
Active Stability Control (ASC)4 employs a series of sensors that constantly monitor the grip of each tire. If a wheel begins to slip, ASC automatically communicates with the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) to apply the brakes to the wheels with the most traction, helping you maintain control of the vehicle in just about any situation.
RISE BODY CONSTRUCTION
Mitsubishi's Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body utilizes crumple zones that route and absorb energy during high-impact collisions. Strategic reinforcements at key body points complement its side-impact door beams, giving your Mitsubishi a stable, secure base that's worth its weight in safety.
