Mitsubishi ACTiVates Lancer
Limited-edition Lancer ACTiV priced at $21,990 driveaway
8 Mar 2010
MITSUBISHI has released a limited-edition ‘ACTiV’ version of its Lancer, featuring a host of extras for a driveaway price of $21,990, which is the entry-level Lancer ES small-car’s normal list price (before statutory and dealer delivery costs are added).
Additional exterior equipment includes 16-inch alloys wheels, privacy glass, side air-dams, a rear spoiler, chromed exhaust outlet and ACTiV badging. Inside, the ACTiV adds hands-free Bluetooth connectivity and a leather-clad steering wheel with audio and Bluetooth controls.
“The Lancer ES is already an extremely well appointed and popular vehicle,” said Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited vice-president of brand marketing, Paul Unerkov. “The additional features available as standard increase the street presence and highlight the superior value of the ACTiV variant.”
The ACTiV is available in a full range of exterior paint colours, in both sedan and (Sportback) hatch body styles, though there are no mechanical changes to the Lancer’s 113kW/198Nm 2.0-litre MIVEC four-cylinder petrol engine, which is available with both manual and (CVT) automatic gearboxes.
Like all new Lancers, the ACTiV continues to come with a five-star ANCAP safety rating, thanks in part to standard electronic stability and traction control systems, ABS brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist, a full suite of airbags, an anti-intrusion pedal system and seatbelt pretensioners.
Like all new Mitsubishis, it is also backed by the company’s five-year/130,000km whole vehicle warranty and roadside assistance package, plus a 10-year/160,000km powertrain warranty.
