2017 Mitsubishi Lancer Limited Edition

With no replacement in sight, Mitsubishi is putting the Lancer nameplate to pasture this year, but not before announcing a new Limited Edition model that will act as the ninth-generation model‘s swansong in the United States. Incorporating a number of aesthetic touches and some extra kit, it will slot in above the ES base model when it goes on sale later this month, priced at US$19,795 (RM86,600).

For that money, you get a gloss black finish on the grille, roof, door mirror caps, faux fender vents and 16-inch alloy wheels, along with a sunroof and Limited Edition badging. Inside, there’s a custom pattern for the black fabric seats, as well as red stitching on the steering wheel, gearknob, handbrake lever, armrest and door trim.

Also included are aluminium pedals, black headlining and pillars, gloss black trim with red highlights and a 6.5-inch touchscreen Display Audio infotainment system with Smartphone Link and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The Limited Edition model will be offered until the end of the 2017 model year.

“The Lancer has a long-standing tradition of providing consumers unparalleled value at an attractive price, so it was only fitting we pay tribute to the sedan with a Limited Edition trim offering.

“With the addition of updated styling and advanced technology features, the Limited Edition Lancer is set to appeal to consumers who prioritize aesthetics and enjoy a connected car experience,” said Mitsubishi Motors North America vice president and chief operating officer Don Swearingen.

Still want a Lancer after that? You’ll have to buy one in Taiwan, where a heavily-revised version, called the Grand Lancer, has recently gone on sale…
