Mitsubishi Lancer

The Lancer lineup in Australia was improved by Mitsubishi with the ES model. Its price starts at AUD$19.990 and the car features a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a revised audio system and also Bluetooth. Another model, the CVT ES features Hill Start Assist and the Lancer LX sends the power to the road through 16-inch alloy wheels. The carmaker also fitted it with chrome touches, reversion camera, side air dams, parking sensors and of course, keyless entry. Next on the list is the sporty VRX, a model equipped with a 6.1-inch color display audio system that features four speakers and tweeters and subwoofer, iPod connectivity and rear view camera interface. The Mitsubishi Lancer ES and LX receive power from a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder MIVEC engine that then send the output to the wheels through a 5-speed manual or a CVT.

The Mitsubishi Lancer VRX features a 2.4-liter MIVEC engine and uses the same transmissions available on other models. When it comes to the Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart, well this is another story. The model is powered by a 2.0-liter MIVEC turbocharged, intercooled engine that uses a Twin Clutch Sport Shift Transmission to send the power to the wheels. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution has a starting price of AUD$56.990 for the model that uses a 5-speed manual transmission; this means it is AUD$5.400 cheaper than the previous model.

The Lancer available with the TC-SST has a starting price of AUD$61.990 which means it is AUD$5.400 cheaper. Now, to turn our attention towards the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR, the carmaker established a starting price of AUD$65.990. This represents a price cut of AUD$8.900 in comparison with the previous model. Under the hood, the Lancer Evolution features a 2.0-liter DOHC MIVEC capable of producing 291 horsepower and 270 lb. ft. of torque.
