Mitsubishi Lancer gets a new face in China
Mitsubishi might not be the most aggressive car brand in India, but globally it does offer impressive range of cars from its stable
Mitsubishi might not be the most aggressive car brand in India, but globally it does offer impressive range of cars from its stable. Going by its current design language, the Lancer, which has had its own sweet success in our country, has undergone a few considerable changes in China. Taking cues from its big brother – the Outlander SUV, the Lancer sedan now adorns a sharper avatar on the whole.
Sporting an x-shaped front with heavy use of chrome and razor sharp creases, the sedan looks quite stylish. The honeycomb pattern on the airdam and an extended front lip spoiler with significant changes at the front bumper provides it with a new face. On the side, it seems Mitsubishi has taken the term ‘sharp’ tad too seriously with a U-shaped cut on the front door and fender. The rear too has been redesigned with boomerang shaped split tail lamps. Use of sharp character lines can be seen at the tailgate and rear bumper as well.
Mitsubishi has not really tweaked the interiors, keeping it similar to the current outgoing Lancer. If rumours are correct, all of these changes will be introduced only for the Chinese market. Other parts of the world might not get a similar Lancer. From what we can recall about this sporty sedan in our country, before it got discontinued, it did have its own persona and is still quite popular amongst auto enthusiasts in the aftermarket.
