2014 Mitsubishi Lancer And Evo: Price And Features For Updated Range

TMR Team | Aug 29, 2013

2014 MITSUBISHI LANCER

Mitsubishi has rolled out an update to its Lancer small car range and Evolution performance hero, adding new features to the line-up's standard kit.

The cost of entry for the base model ES remains firm at $19,990 plus on-roads, but Mitsubishi Australia has dug deep in the options bin to boost the ageing Lancer's appeal in the competitive small-car market.

For 2014, the ES picks up keyless entry, new seat fabrics and 16-inch alloy wheels. It also features leather door-inserts, chrome door handles and dark silver highlights in the cabin.

The power windows have auto function for the driver, and there's a tilt adjustable steering wheel with hands-free audio and phone functions, and cruise control.

The mid-level LX also gets Mitsubishi's 6.1 inch touch display with reversing camera. That's upgraded to seven inches and satellite navigation in the up-spec VRX and turbocharged Ralliart models.

The LX also has reversing sensors and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, sports seats with leather trim, heated front seats, climate control and chrome highlights.

The VRX's standard kit already includes 18-inch alloys, automatic wipers and headlights.

The Ralliart model, available only as a auto-equipped sedan, already includes climate control and an LCD multifunction display.

Mechanical packages remain unchanged, with ES and LX models powered by a 110kW/197Nm 2.0 litre petrol and the VRX driven by a 125kW/226Nm unit. The turbo Ralliart offers 177kW and 343Nm.

2014 Mitsubishi Evo

The 217kW 2014 Evolution's standard kit includes power windows, central locking, immobiliser, security alarm with DataDot, dusk auto lights and wipers, cruise control, power door mirrors with electric fold control and push-button start.

There's also a 6.1 inch display with reversing camera, hands-free Bluetooth with voice activation and audio streaming, CD player with MP3 and AM/FM radio, iPod and USB connectivity, four speakers and two tweeters.

The Evolution five-speed manual can be upgraded with the $3000 Evolution Performance Pack, adding Brembo two-piece type front discs, Bilstein front and rear shock absorbers, Eibach front and rear springs and 18-inch BBS forged alloy wheels.

Upgrading to the Evolution MR adds the Performance Pack as standard, along with colour-coded air vents in the bonnet and bumpers, chrome highlights, HID headlights with adaptive front lights.

In the cabin, the MR gets leather Recaro seats up front, and Evolution chrome scuff plates. There's also a seven-inch display with satellite navigation and rear view camera, along with Rockford Fosgate auto.

    I can't see why Mitsubishi can't add a 6 speed manual to their 2013/2014 carsrolleyes 5 speed is so out of date bleh

      Do you even understand WHY they put the 5spd?
      Simply because it's a CRAPLOAD STRONGER than a 6 spd. 5th gear needs to be longer along with final drive in some aspect but the gearbox will cope with a hell of a lot more torque than a 6 speed.

        Thanks for that Answer Maz, the Evo 9 used a 6 speed Manual and they had lots of power, Mitsubishi aren't known to have the 'Glass Gearbox' reputation of the manual WRX's a few years back smile

        I was also talking about the non turbo versions of the manual Lancer, would make sense for improved fuel economy
        etc

          Yeah I know the 6 speed is reasonable, but if chasing massive power, the 5 speed is where it's at.
          Agree with you though on the N/A / non-sport variety, the 6 speed would make a lot more sense for economy.

          Taylor Maz is right. Some people just don't get it. You should contact a Mitsubishi engineer in Japan to explain it to you if you don't believe it. For motorsport applications the 5 speed box is stronger that is why every lightweight stripped out EVO for motorsport only applications sold by Mitsubishi in the past came with the 5 speed box.

          So instead of having to deal with warranty issues or people complaining, they ditched the 6 speeder in favour of the 5 speed unit. now why do you need 6 speeds anyway? Do you driver hour and hours every day on highways? I bet not. I bet you live in a big city where even a 3 speed box will suffice.

          Some people just do not get it!!!

      It was due to be replaced in 2012 but delayed by 2 years thanks to the Tsunami.
