Sometimes you have to wonder about Limited Editions … here’s one that gets a special badge, some extra metal, Bluetooth, stereo controls and leather steering on the steering wheel and that’s all it takes to make it special. Still, the price for the limited edition Mitsubishi Lancer ACTiV is attractive.
Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited (MMAL) will add a limited edition to the already popular Lancer range in March 2010. Based on the feature-packed ES model, the Lancer ACTiV sports an impressive list of interior and exterior additions all with a drive-away price starting from $21,990.
MMAL Vice president of brand marketing, Paul Unerkov, is delighted to welcome the Lancer ACTiV and believes it will be a hot seller at Mitsubishi dealerships across Australia.
“The Lancer ES is already an extremely well appointed and popular vehicle. The additional features available as standard increase the street presence and highlight the superior value of the ACTiV variant.”
Upgrades to the exterior of the Lancer ACTiV include 16-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, side airdams, rear spoiler, chrome exhaust tip and the ACTiV badge. Inside, the ACTiV boasts the convenience of hands free blue tooth and features a leather steering wheel with audio and blue tooth controls.
The Lancer ACTiV boasts the efficient 2.0-litre dual overhead cam MIVEC four-cylinder engine, delivering 113kW of power @ 6000rpm and 198 Nm of torque at 4250 rpm, and is available in both manual and CVT transmissions, and in either the Sportback or sedan body styles.
With the five-star ANCAP safety rating awarded to the entire Lancer range, the Lancer ACTiV provides the utmost in safety. Active Stability Control with Traction Control (ASTC), ABS braking system with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA), (SRS) airbags, anti-intrusion pedal system, seatbelt pretensioners, and reinforced impact safety evolution (RISE) body all contributing to the ultimate protection rating.
Available in the full range of Lancer colours, the Lancer ACTiV is now available at Mitsubishi dealerships Australia-wide.
Like all Mitsubishi vehicles, the Lancer ACTiV is protected by the company’s leading and comprehensive five year/130,000 whole vehicle warranty, backed up by its 10 year/160,000 km powertrain warranty and a five year/unlimited km roadside assistance package.
