Lancer / Lancer Wagon

After the Lancer Cedia and Lancer Cedia Wagon underwent a major facelift, in February 2003 the Lancer and Lancer Wagon rejoined the Mitsubishi Motors' range without the Cedia variant name. While it retained the same Japanese compact-size category body used by its predecessor, the Lancer came with heavily restyled front and rear ends. The front fascia, in particular, shared the design language seen in the popular Colt and Lancer Evolution VIII. It was created around the Mitsubishi 3-diamond logo and with a grille symbolizing the identity of the rejuvenated Mitsubishi Motors. Sedan models feature an elegantly sporty rear end design that is styled around an oversize trunk lid accented by a centrally located license plate. Some trim levels had a new deck spoiler and side airdams design-keyed to the trunk lid to further accent the model's sporty personality. In keeping with the major exterior changes, the body was stiffened using additional reinforcements. The suspension was also tuned for greater stiffness and this gave improved handling/driving stability and lower NVH. The Lancer and Lancer Wagon were powered by 1.8L GDI and 1.8L GDI turbo engines (Wagon) tuned to use regular instead of premium grade gasoline.
