Fresh new looks and increased value for 2016 Lancer

14th Dec, 2015

Mitsubishi Motors has freshened its Lancer range for 2016 with extra features and a contemporary new look across all models.

Mitsubishi Motors Australia Executive Director of Marketing Tony Principe said the Lancer name is synonymous with Mitsubishi in Australia and the 2016 Lancer range had been refined to ensure Lancer continues to deliver on its core attributes of reliability, exceptional value and low cost of ownership. 

“Lancer has a fresher new look, additional features for 2016 and revised model line-up to maintain its position within the popular small car market,” he said.

“Lancer’s proven track record and unbeatable combination of sporty styling, reliability and standard features remain the foundation of its enduring appeal, particularly with younger buyers.

“For 2016, we’ve taken this a step further by adding to Lancer’s value and appearance through substantial feature upgrades to ES Sport and LS sedan models, while its new styling is complemented with standard features like reversing camera, front fog lamps, LED daytime running lamps, digital audio broadcast (DAB) with 6 speakers and colour touch screens across the range.”

Mitsubishi’s refined 2016 Lancer sedan line-up now offers three levels : ES Sport and – with 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine, 18 inch alloy wheels and sports suspension – a new GSR variant.  For the luxury-minded buyer, LS sedan brings together comfort features like leather interior, privacy glass and bright finish 18-inch alloy wheels.  The Lancer Sportback model line-up remains unchanged.

Lancer’s 5 star ANCAP safety rating is further enhanced with reversing camera and LED daytime running lamps across the range.

Among the exterior and interior visual changes to 2016 Lancer are new front bumper design with integrated chrome upper and lower accent grille, front fog lights, side body skirts and, on the inside, high contrast instrument cluster, a new front centre console with silver and black accents and new colour display DAB (Digital Audio Broadcast) audio head unit.


Two new colours will be available: Starlight (pearl white) and Sterling Silver. 

Meanwhile, all 2016 Lancer models gain new bumper and grille, LED daytime running lamps with integrated fog lights, side body skirts, a new front centre console, colour display audio unit with reversing camera interface, high contrast instrument cluster, new accent panel and a six speaker audio system with DAB digital audio.
