This is the last edition of the Mitsubishi Lancer and it is still selling in Malaysia. With a 2-liter engine mated to a slick shifting CVT and a sports-tuned suspension with 18-inch wheels shod with 215/45 R18 tires and large 4-wheel disc brakes, this sedan remain an aggressive twisty-road tamer.

This recently overlooked by many buyers Lancer was Mitsubishi’s best-selling car in Malaysia until 2012. Mitsubishi’s tough race/rally cars were among the world’s championship cars and they were based on this Lancer.

To date there has been no real confirmation from Mitsubishi Motors Japan if there will be a new version of this iconic nameplate coming to showrooms globally, but there are string rumours that Mitsubishi is planning a revival with a possible concept car that will carry the Lancer nameplate, if demand remains strong for the sedan market which has been overtaken by the rising SUV trend.
