More refined 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer arriving in NZ next month

The 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer is due in New Zealand next month and will be 20% quieter than its predecessor.

“Significant upgrades to insulation have made a very noticeable difference to sound intrusion,” said MMNZ head of sales and marketing strategy Daniel Cook. “The improvements are in response to feedback from our customers and will have a direct improvement on occupant comfort.”

Together with the sound reduction, the four-strong Lancer model range gains mechanical brake assist, which aids the driver in heavy braking situations, and automatic driver’s window function. A further useful introduction is the programmable welcome home exterior lighting, which allows the driving lights to remain on for 30 seconds while exiting the vehicle.

All but the sports orientated VRX have received further refinements to suspension springs and dampers for a more comfortable ride. VR and VRX have a revised one-touch keyless entry system and larger side air dams give both variants a sportier look. VRX also receives a stereo USB port for external music players.

“Lancer is a cornerstone model for us and has many loyal customers,” said Mr Cook. “These improvements will certainly make their decision to purchase easier and combined with our industry-leading 10/5 Diamond Advantage New Car Warranty with five years roadside assist, it’s a very persuasive package.”

The 10/5 Diamond Advantage New Car Warranty provides ten years or 160,000km — which ever comes first – cover on the drive train and five years or 130,000km cover on the whole vehicle.

Pricing for the 2011 Lancer range remains the same.
