Lancer now offers more occupant safety than any of its direct competitors totalling seven airbags, driver and passenger SRS airbags, side and curtain airbags and driver knee airbag standard on every model.
To compliment the cabin safety is Mitsubishi's acclaimed RISE (reinforced impact safety evolution) body, stability control, traction control, ABS with brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution and seatbelt load limiters.
Robert McEniry, president and chief executive officer of MMAL, said the news on Lancer "just keeps getting better and better.""2009 was a standout year for Lancer, and it recorded the best-ever result with more than 21,000 vehicles sold," McEniry said."And, now, with side and curtain airbags fitted as standard to each and every vehicle in the range, Lancer is guaranteed a great start in 2010."
