New Mitsubishi 2018-2019 replenished with a new sedan Mitsubishi Grand Lancer, presented on February 14, 2017 in Taiwan. In the review photo and video, the price and configuration, the technical characteristics of the Mitsubishi Grand Lancer. Sales of the new Mitsubishi Grand Lancer with a non-alternative gasoline 140-horsepower gasoline engine will start in Taiwan in April 2017 at a price of 679,000 new Taiwan dollars (1,280 thousand rubles) for the basic Elegant package up to 819,000 Taiwan dollars (1,545 thousand rubles) for top equipment Flagship.
We hasten to note that the four-door sedan Mitsubishi Grand Lancer is not 100% novelty of the Japanese company, and it’s just a rebuilt and modernized Mitsubishi Lancer X, created by specialists of the local engineering center CARTEC (China-Motor Asia Research and Technology Center) for the Taiwanese and Chinese market. Japanese company Mitsubishi does not plan to sell Grand Lancer in other markets, and Russian, European and American fans of the model should be patient and wait for a new generation of Mitsubishi Lancer, the development of which is in full swing jointly with Renault-Nissan (in 2016, Nissan Motor acquired 34% Mitsubishi Motors, thus becoming the company’s largest shareholder). However, Mitsubishi’s most anticipated novelty in Russia is likely to be the new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross crossover.
So what is behind the Grand prefix of the Lancer?
Changes, by the way, the mass, and they affect the exterior design of the body and interior decoration, supplemented by modern equipment. But the technique is the same, from the 10-year Lancer X.
Let’s begin the review by a good tradition with the appearance of the car. Grand Lancer, having received completely new body panels with charismatic vyshtampovkami on the doors, retained the power frame body and chassis of the usual Lancer. So the size of the wheelbase remained the same – 2635 mm, but the overall overall length increased to 4615 mm (for the usual Lancer the length of the body is 4570 mm). The increase in length at the Grand Lancer is due to the presence of a completely new front and rear of the body.
The front of the car looks stylish, modern and bright, thanks to the presence of the corporate design style of the Japanese manufacturer Dynamic Shield with the X-shaped chrome inserts, emphasizing the falshradiator grille and narrowed headlights (all LEDs are optional).
The sedan’s stern has also changed quite dramatically and has acquired new LED headlamps with sharp edges, a different trunk lid and a massive bumper.
The Mitsubishi Lancer saloon with the Grand addition has also changed globally and qualitatively, becoming similar to the Mitsubishi Outlander crossover interior. We observe a new steering wheel with three large spokes, a virtual multifunctional instrument panel with a color display (expensive sets), a different front panel and a center console filled with a large 8-inch color touchscreen multimedia system (navigation, digital TV) and a new control unit. -control. The driver’s and front passenger’s seats with expressive lateral support, the correct anatomical shape of the backrest and a long pillow.
In the basic configuration, there are a pair of front airbags, stabilization system, a rear-view camera and even a warning system about the threat of a frontal collision.
As additional options: side airbags and curtains, keyless entry system and the button for activation of the engine, full-LED headlights, electric sunroof, dual-zone climate control, leather interior trim, 18-inch alloy wheels.
Specifications of Mitsubishi Grand Lancer 2018-2019. Under the hood, the non-alternative gasoline atmospheric four-cylinder engine is the 1.8-liter SOHC MIVEC (140 HP 176 Nm) in company with the INVECS-III CVT variator from Jatco, which transmits traction to the front wheels. Front and rear brake discs, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, ESP and Hill-Start Assist are available.
Lancer’s suspension has undergone a revision, so the new Grand Lancer can boast more comfortable tuning of the undercarriage as well as improved noise isolation of the cabin through the use of additional noise-absorbing panels and elements installed in wheel arches and on the engine board under the rear shelf and central tunnel.
