Mitsubishi adds sports features, GSR Sportback to Lancer range

11th Apr, 2014

Mitsubishi has replaced its Lancer Sportback range with just one sports-oriented model – the GSR – which is fitted with Mitsubishi’s 2.4-litre 125kW MIVEC powertrain, sport tuned suspension, the choice of five-speed manual or CVT automatic with sport mode and paddle shifters.

The GSR is enhanced with the full complement of sporty features including 18-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels, Ralliart style front grille, side air dams, rear sports spoiler and cloth sports-style front seats.

The GSR also comes equipped with a host of safety and convenience features such as reversing camera, voice activated Bluetooth with audio streaming, climate control air-conditioning, privacy glass, smart key access, rain sensing wipers, dusk sensing headlamps and 6.1-inch full colour touch screen with iPod compatibility and rear view camera interface.

Recommended retail pricing for the Lancer GSR Sportback is $22,990 RRP with manual transmission and $25,240 RRP for the CVT automatic.

Meanwhile, Mitsubishi has a new entry level Lancer sedan, the ES Sport, which has a recommended retail price of $20,390 (manual transmission).  A Ralliart-style grille, rear spoiler, chrome muffler tip, side air dam and 16-inch five-spoke alloy wheels are fitted to maximise the ES Sport’s visual appeal.

The LX sedan has also been upgraded with the Ralliart-style front grille, making the sports fascia standard across the entire Lancer range. 

Mitsubishi Motors Australia Executive Director of Marketing Tony Principe said the Lancer line-up has been updated to reflect the changing needs of the market as more and more customers seek high levels of standard equipment and strong visual appeal at every price point.  

“Our Lancer range has always had a strong reputation for value, reliability and fun driving characteristics, and our value models have long been the cornerstone of the Lancer range,” he said.

“Last year, we had such a great response to the limited edition ES Sport model that we decided to make it a permanent part of the Lancer portfolio.

“We also redefined the hatch line-up to capitalise on the sporty character of Lancer Sportback and give it an image that’s quite distinct from sedan.    

“Lancer GSR Sportback brings together the 2.4-litre MIVEC engine, sport tuned suspension and 18-inch alloy wheels in one sharply-priced package.”  

Mitsubishi’s revised Lancer range is currently available at Mitsubishi Dealers across Australia.
