Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X updated for 2010

Mitsubishi has done some minor upgrades to its Japanese-spec Lancer Evolution X as part of the car’s mid-cycle update. Although the changes are limited to the Japanese market at this stage they may be included in NZ spec models by early next year.

Coming in for the 2010 model year, the car picks up thicker side skirts and a redesigned bumper that’s 1.5kg lighter than the current version. The weight saving comes from the use of lighter plastics up front.

Inside, a new full-colour multi-function LCD display in the centre of the instrument cluster replaces the existing screen, bringing new functions at the same time. Mitsubishi has also added some new interior trim options, with more padding and insulation installed to improve cabin ambience.

For Japan the range-topping GSR Premium Edition loses the optional five-speed manual gearbox, meaning it will be offered exclusively with the six-speed twin-clutch SST.
