2012 Mitsubishi Lancer

Mitsubishi Lancer began life way back in as a small car, then gradually morphed into a medium-sized model. The new model launched in October 2007 was significantly larger than its honourable ancestors and can be used as a family car. These are the Lancers being reviewed here.

Mitsubishi has announced information on its upcoming, virtually all-new Triton that will arrive in Australia in January 2019. Local pricing and specifications will be announced closer to the local launch date.

Mitsubishi has long been a leader in SUVs in Australia, with the Pajero, launched in the mid 1980s, proving you can have comfort and off-road ability at the same time.
