Since that moment it was announced the serial production of new items. Two years later, the Japanese slightly updated the sedan, introduced a restyling version of the Mitsubishi Lancer. The owners' comments say that this version became popular on the domestic market and found a great demand in Russia. In fact, the 9th generation of "Lancer" is legendary for the CIS market, since basically this car was produced for Russian motorists. Since 2007, the sedan has ceased to be produced (it was replaced by Mitsubishi Lancer of the 10th generation), but now you can see this legend on virtually every street in any city. This is not surprising, because it was such a "Lancer" distinguished by its high build quality, democratic price, excellent maneuverability and attractive design. And now more about all this.

A kind and cheerful appearance - this is how the owners of the Mitsubishi Lancer design are described.

Reviews of owners not onlypositive, but also negative moments in the cabin. One of them is poor sound insulation. When driving not on an asphalt road, you can clearly hear every beat of the slightest stone, beating about the bottom of the car.The buzz of the engine is also not very happy owners. However, not everything is as sad as, at first sight, the ninth generation of the Mitsubishi Lancer. The owners' comments mark a large and spacious salon, in the back row of which can comfortably accommodate three adults. Also a positive moment is the presence of various boxes for storing all sorts of small things. There is a glove compartment on the front panel, plastic pockets in the doors, an open box between the seats, and even on the center console there is a small niche for keys or documentation.

The owners' comments also point outa variety of engines. There are actually more than 10 of them, but they were not delivered to every market in full. So, for Russians, the Japanese provided only three gasoline units. Among them, the younger, with its working volume, developed a power of 82 horsepower. The average motor reached already 98 "horses", and its working volume increased to a mark of 1.6 liters. The top two-liter engine developed a power of 135 horsepower.And all three units were equipped with two transmissions (to choose from). It could be either a 4-speed "automatic", or "mechanics" on 5 steps.
