Translated with Google.
In the year just ended the Guangzhou International Motor Show, Mitsubishi next-generation Lancer using imported in the form of the introduction of domestic sales, respectively, with 2.0L and 2.4L engine power, the estimated price of 218,000 yuan from. Before that, southeast of Mitsubishi Tanabe, deputy general manager of the Shang Yu in an interview when that next year will Lancer EX into China to carry out home-made, and made a new generation of Lancer's internal code name was "GS".

From the domestic next-generation Lancer's spy as we can see that the new models currently imported Lancer EX is very similar, but there are also many differences. China-made new generation Lancer continues to face the first shark-like nose, but the decorative chrome around the article was imported models, front fog lamps and shapes have changed.

China-made new generation Lancer side of the body lines and import Lancer EX does not change too much, the tall and tight waistline gives a sense of coordination, dynamic fluid lines, highlights the seductive charm. However, domestic next-generation Lancer did not campaign with a strong sense of skirts, the wheel and also imports Lancer EX, do not know whether the test loading components because of the lack of a sound.

From the tail of the photos we can see that China-made new generation Lancer and imported Lancer EX does not change too much, especially after the same sharp taillight cover is not cutting edge. And made a new generation of Lancer's tail affixed with a "South East Motor," the plaque to reveal its true "identity." Through the tail of the photos can be seen reversing radar probe, it appears that domestic next-generation Lancer is not a low profile.

The car's interior is not particularly clear as spy, but can still see out the internal structure. First of all, made a new generation of Lancer's console and imported Lancer EX's basically the same layout, but the materials used in the shrinking significantly, the console be used decorative chrome-design article. In addition, the co-pilot was to place a cash Lancer head of the CD, it is to test the old-fashioned audio equipment coordination? There are car seats, obviously the use of cash Lancer's seat weaving, I do not know whether such a mass production model. China-made new generation Lancer used six-speed manual gearbox, but many consumers seem to be looking for more fun to drive manual gearbox.

Above, many of the coming generation of consumers in China Lancer models also have some knowledge. Mitsubishi next-generation Lancer is currently imported in the form of sales, the price of medium-sized cars have entered the price range. However, the South East Mitsubishi hopes the new generation Lancer made after the adoption of lower cost, this new-generation models will enter the compact car market, so that Teng-speed, Carola, and other models will be made next-generation Lancer's competitors.

Re: 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer

An article from China Car Times suggest that the new Lancer, which is to enter production this year might replace the hundreds of Volkswagen Santanas in the police force. A police model was seen outside the SouEast factory alongside a civilian model.

Re: 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer

Interesting. The police force must think pretty highly of the car, and its reliability. I know I love my '08 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS. It goes in for a L-O-F and tire rotation on Friday the 3rd of July in Tucson.

Mitsubishi Lancer VIII to be named New Lancer in China.

22 July 2009
The next generation of Soueast Mitsubishi Lancer is getting ready to roll off the production line.

The current SouEast built Lancer is somewhere between the 5th and 6th and 7th generation Lancers, and is quite frankly, nothing compared to the 8th generation model.

Thankfully, SouEast and their JV partner, Mitsubishi, do have plans to introduce the 8th Generation Lancer into the Chinese market as a domestically made product later this year. The 8th generation model is currently imported into China via the Beijing Auto Works dealerships and is priced at 200,000rmb and rising. The domestically made Lancer is expected to go head to head with a rising crop of domestically made compact cars such as the Ford Focus, Honda Civic and VW Sagitar. The domestically made Lancer is expected to have engines from 1.6l, 1.8l to 2.0l.

The Lancer has also been without a name, as the current Soueast built Lancer takes the phonetically translated 蓝瑟 name (Lan Zhi), to solve this problem, SouEast has simply called the new Lancer 蓝瑟·翼神 (Lan Zhi Huang Shen), a genius move I’m sure we can all agree.

A launch date for the 7th generation Lancer is not confirmed but it is expected to be around the end of the year.

Lancer Hatchback Spotted Out Testing.

With SouEast getting ready to launch the most recent generation Mitsubishi Lancer sedan in China in November, it comes as no suprise to learn that the Lancer hatchback is also highly likely to be built in China.

The Chinese built Lancer EX sedan will be launched next month (November 2009) and is expected to sell around 5000 units per month which might put Mitsubishi back on track in the PRC. The addition of a Lancer hatchback would only boost sales further, the hatchback Lancer has already been spotted in China which could indicate that SouEast Mitsubishi could launch it sometime early next year, although it is likely to launch at one of the big automotive shows such as the Beijing or Shanghai Auto show.

2009 Mitsubishi Lancer EX

I like the rims of this car. Its sleek and cool. But not really impressed with the interior part of this Mitsubishi Lancer. The exterior part of the car is impressive especially the area of headlights.

Any idea about the pricing range of this car if available here in Oman?

Mitsubishi Lancer EX sedans recalled in China for airbag risk


November 17, 2010
Southeast Motor Corp has started today to recall 30 Mitsubishi Lancer EX sedans in China for airbag risk, China National Radio reported Wednesday, according to the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ).

The recall affects Mitsubishi's EX sedans produced during July 12-13 2010.

The front seat airbags were mounted from a wrong angle, which, in extreme cases, may cause drivers' legs to block the exhaust vents when collision occurs, making the airbags more rigid and resulting in high-temperature airbag exhaust gas that may burn the legs, the AQSIQ said in a statement posted on its website.

Southeast Motor, a Chinese partner of Mitsubishi Motors Corp based in South China's Fujian Province, said it will repair or replace the airbags at no charge to owners.

For more information, owners can call the AQSIQ by dialing 010-59796616/65537365, or visit its website at www.dpac.gov.cn.
