Mitsubishi is introducing a new Lancer trim that will serve as a last hurrah for the slow-selling sedan.
The 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer Limited Edition goes on sale later this month for $20,660. Slotting just above the base ES 2.0, the Limited Edition features black treatments to the 16-inch wheels, roof, upper front grille garnish, fender garnish, and door mirrors. A Limited Edition badge and a sunroof are also included.
More interesting is the custom black-and-red interior. Inside the cabin, you’ll find sport seats and red stitching on the steering wheel, shift knob, brake lever, arm rest, and door trim. A black headliner, gloss black accents, and aluminum pedals complete the look. As far as technology goes, the model features a 6.5-inch infotainment screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an LCD multi-information display, and a rearview camera.
Under the hood sits a familiar 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder engine producing 148 hp and 145 lb-ft of torque. A CVT is the only available gearbox on the Limited Edition trim.
The Limited Edition Lancer will be available for the rest of the model year, and that’s it. Earlier this year, Mitsubishi confirmed it would discontinue the Lancer in August. Going forward, the company will focus heavily on crossovers and plug-in hybrid technology that it will share with Nissan.
