Mitsubishi Lancer : New small car still "three or four years" away, if it gets green light at all

The ageing Mitsubishi Lancer could be forced to fight on beyond a decade of production, with the company’s boss admitting a successor will not arrive until 2017 or 2018, if at all. Mitsubishi Motors president Osamu Masuko told CarAdvice it would take the Japanese car maker “about three or four years” to ready a replacement for the current Lancer, though once again stopped short of confirming an all-new generation of the long-serving and historically popular nameplate.
