The Mitsubishi Lancer was once a popular economy car in Kenya and many people loved it for its simplicity, affordability and fuel efficiency. On the other hand, there were questions around its long term reliability, which consequently affected its resale value. In 2007 It was replaced by the Mitsubishi Galant Fortis in Japan but it retained the Lancer name in other markets. The Lancer Evolution which is a popular rally car is based on this platform. Production of the Evolution ended in 2015 while that of the Lancer ended in 2017. A few exceptions are being manufactured in China due to its popularity there.
The Lancer is moderately spaced and comfortable. It’s a no frills car with a bias for plastic in the interior but other than that the car is perfectly functional. In terms of space, at the first row, there’s enough legroom for both driver and passenger. At the second, the legroom is decent and medium sized passengers will find it comfortable.
On the outside, the frontal design is sharp and sporty with narrow headlights and grille. It comes in saloon and wagon/hatchback versions.
