Mitsubishi Lancer

 from 1973 to 2012

Mitsubishi Lancer road car

1973 : Generation 1

The Lancer A70 was launched in February 1973 in two- and four-door sedan form.
It proved to be particularly successful in rallies, a claim that it retains to this day.
The Lancer served to fill a gap in Mitsubishi's lineup in the small to lower-medium segment of the growing Japanese market.
Twelve models were launched, ranging from a basic 1.2-litre sedan to a more powerful 1600 GSR model, successful in rallying. ...

1979 : Generation 2

In 1979, the Lancer EX was unveiled in Japan.
Only two engines were offered at the time, a 1.4 L MCA-JET equipped engine paired with Mitsubishi's Silent Shaft Technology, which generated 80 hp (60 kW) and a 1.6 L engine that generated 85 hp (63 kW) and 100 hp (75 kW).
The MCA-JET system was an entirely new concept when compared with the previously used carburetor system.
The MCA stands for Mitsubishi Clean Air which meant that the EX passed both Japan and US emission standards, while the new cylinder head ...

1982 : Generation 3

In January 1982, a special model was launched called the Lancer Fiore, also known as third version of the Lancer, based on the A15#-series Mitsubishi Colt/Mirage.
Its introduction coincided with the Mirage II facelift, from which the Fiore benefitted too.
The Fiore was often sold as a Lancer in international markets, and also as the Mirage Saloon in Japan.
In Australia, it would eventually be sold as the Mitsubishi Colt Sedan although cosmetically different.
Thus, Mitsubishi had two similarly sized models ...

1984 : Generation 4

With the introduction of the C10 series, the Mirage Saloon and Lancer Fiore (just Lancer in the export) remained the same car.
The new Lancer Fiore incorporated the latest in computer control engine technology including an electronic fuel injection for its high-performance 1.6-litre turbocharged engine with a power output of 120ps.
For the fuel conscious, a 1.8-litre "Sirius" diesel engine was added as well as the new 1.5-litre MD (Modulated Displacement) engine which was developed by Mitsubishi Motors and ...

Mitsubishi Lancer break  (1986-1990)

1988 : Generation 5

In 1988, a more aerodynamic-looking Lancer was launched, following the shape of the Galant.
A five-door liftback was added to the range.
The station wagon continued on the old platform and shape.
In Japan, sedans and hatchbacks were available with either the Lancer or the Mirage nameplate, while hatchbacks were only sold as Mirages and liftbacks only as Lancers.
In Australia, where the 1978 Mirage/Lancer Fiore was still produced as the Colt, all models of the new car were sold as the Mitsubishi Lancer, ini ...


Mitsubishi Lancer   (1988-1991)

1992 : Generation 6

It was only in 1991 that there was greater differentiation between the Mirage and Lancer.
Although both were on the same platform, the Lancer sedan received different sheetmetal from the Mirage four-door.
The Mirage variant was sold in North America under the Eagle Summit name.
Minivan models, such as the Mitsubishi Space Runner and Mitsubishi Chariot, were mechanically related.
In 1993, the Lancer wagon, named the Libero in Japan, was launched. ...

Mitsubishi Lancer station wagon  (1993-1995)

1996 : Generation 7

In 1995, the Lancer was renewed for its Seventh generation, building on the earlier model's format.
Apart from the Evo models' continuation, it did not depart from the established Lancer formula.
A sedan and wagon (Libero in Japan) were offered, with a related Mirage model.
The coupé continued as the Mirage Asti in Japan, known as the Lancer Coupé elsewhere.
A turbocharged GSR version continued to be sold until the end of the 1990s.
This platform was also the basis for the Mirage, as it was known in North ...

Mitsubishi Lancer station wagon  (1996-2000)

2001 : Generation 8

The year 2000 saw the release of the eighth-generation Lancer Cedia in Japan (meaning Century Diamond); though in most markets the seventh generation Lancer continued, built at Mitsubishi's Mizushima plant in Japan.
The new model was available in sedan and station wagon forms.
The Mirage, apart from the export models, became a different car in Japan that was unrelated to the Lancer.
In Europe, the Lancer was not offered in some countries, being too close to the size of the Dutch-built Carisma, so the Evo V ...
