Mitsubishi Lancer History and Today: A Look at the Road’s Brightest

Mitsubishi Lancer History

The Mitsubishi Lancer has been sold over many names since it was first revealed in 1973, but its powerful performance and innovative design have always been a staple for this compact model. Today, the Mitsubishi Lancer is one of the smartest cars on the road.

 

When the Mitsubishi Lancer was first released, it was designed to compete with other economy cars at the time, offering a few engine options and body styles. But as the decade went on and into the next, the Lancer spread globally, and its design became more aggressive.

 

By the ‘90s, the Lancer had become a racing champion, with the Lancer EVO winning a handful of consecutive titles between 1996 and 1999. The Lancer EVO’s technology continued to raise the bar for the industry, offering superior handling and control.

 

Overtime, the Mitsubishi Lancer held its title as one of the sharpest, most clever vehicles on both the road and the tracks, leading up to today – where you will find the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer.

 

The latest model is built on the Lancer’s legacy while also reflecting the needs of the contemporary driver, with excellent available all-wheel drive abilities and one of the best warranties in the entire industry.
