Will the Future Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution “Crossover” to the Other Side?

Sometimes, people get names just right, and now it would seem that Mitsubishi had itself one of those undeniable “got-it-right” moments, years after it first introduced the Mitsubishi Lancer “Evolution” back in 2015.

What started off as just idle gossip is turning out to be true: the future Mitsubishi Lancer Evo will in fact evolve into a crossover! The new build will carry forth the high performance and athleticism of the Mitsubishi Lancers of times gone by, only now with what we’re assuming will be increased power and capability. Unfortunately, we’ll probably have to wait another three to six years before we see the crossover on the road.

The Mitsubishi Lancer is one of Mitsubishi’s most well-known vehicles. Since its introduction in 1973, it has upheld the promise of its ultra-athletic styling with sporty performance and surprising kick for a compact car. We’ve always enjoyed connecting drivers with their dream rides here at Coronet Mitsubishi — lucky for us, the Mitsubishi Lancer has consistently made that task fairly easy.

If you just can’t wait the few years it will take for Mitsubishi to roll out the all-new Mitsubishi Lancer Evo crossover, then stop by Coronet Mitsubishi today and see all the other incredible Mitsubishi models we have in stock.

The new 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer offers drivers top safety features and now it has the backing of the federal government. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) rates vehicles based on their standard equipment and crash test results. This year, the Mitsubishi Lancer brings more safety equipment to the compact sedan segment.

The NHTSA awarded the new Lancer with a four-star safety rating, just one star shy of the highest available five-star safety rating. In all, the Lancer earned a consistent four stars in the front, rollover, and side crash tests.

This year, the Mitsubishi Lancer comes stocked with standard safety equipment like seven airbags, antilock brakes, electronic stability control, and traction control. A rearview camera comes standard on all trim levels, a new feature for the 2017 model year. The Lancer also comes with a standard drive-side knee airbag as part of its seven-airbag system.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, another federal government agency, has yet to rate the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer. The 2016 model earned an Acceptable rating in the small-overlap crash test and a Good rating for all other tests.

Here at Coronet Mitsubishi, we’re pumped to see the new Lancer offering improved safety in the compact sedan segment!
