The most successful Lancer series ever has just gotten an upgrade with model year 2012 specification changes and the introduction of a 30th Anniversary Edition Lancer.

With Lancer sales hovering around the 1,500 units per month mark (or about eight percent marketshare), Mitsubishi’s small car range has been simplified with the deletion of the SX variant but has seen improvements to fuel economy, interior quality and standard equipement.

Fuel usage has dropped from 7.6L/100km to 6.8L/100km for the manual and from 8.2L/100km to 7.2L/100km for the CVT (auto). For the base model ES, Mitsubishi has improved the door trim, adding soft touch plastics but the dashboard and instrument cluster remain relatively unchanged. An extra $970 will get you the convinence pack which adds reversing camera (embedded into the rear view mirror), Bluetooth telephone connectivity and steering wheel audio and phone controls.

For those going for the Lancer VR range, the exterior look has been updated with front corner air dams while reversing camera and sensors come standard.

VRX models gain the Ralliart style front bumper and grille, plus new 18″ alloy wheels and leather seat trim. Aspire gains the same alloys but with new interior decoration. The two performance variants, Ralliart and Evolution X, get gloss black interior decoration.

30th Anniversary models are based on the VR and gain leather seats with heated front seats plus power driver’s seat and privacy glass.

All Lancer variants come standard with active stability control, dual front, side and curtain and driver’s knee SRS airbags and ABS braking system with Electronic Brake Force Distribution. The Mitsubishi Lancer range earns the highest five-star ANCAP safety rating.
