MITSUBISHI LANCER MR

MITSUBISHI LANCER MR

Los Angeles Convention Center

This is the second time we had seen the new Lancer in three weeks; there was this time at the LA Auto Show, and we had originally seen it at the Tokyo Motor Show about three weeks earlier. There are two trim levels for the car in the US, LS and MR (the MR package is the pricier of the two). Mitsubishi folks at the display told me that this US version will produce 295 horsepower from a turbocharged I-4 2.0 Liter engine and be equipped with all-wheel drive. In Japan, it is the "Lancer Evolution X", known more simply as the "Evo X" (and the 'X' is pronounced as the letter X; it is not the Roman numeral for 'ten', at least in this case).
