      Mitsubishi gave Lancer an extensive facelift and a slightly different name for select Asian countries. Dubbed the Grand Lancer, the facelifted Lancer debuted in Taiwan, but will probably be offered in other Asian markets as well.






      via Carscoops

      The new Mitsubishi Grand Lancer has been officially revealed shortly after images of it leaked online.

      Set to be sold in China and other select Asian markets like Taiwan and Malaysia, the Grand Lancer retains a characteristic Lancer design, but is immediately identifiable from the final Lancer models being produced and sold internationally.

      The front of the Grand Lancer incorporates the company's distinctive Dynamic Shield look with chrome stretching across and around the front grille. Additionally, the five-door sedan has a particularly eyebrow-raising side profile due to the presence of two bold character lines running from the front wheel arch to the rear wheel.

      Mitsubishi's refreshed design is also notable at the rear thanks to a set of uniquely-shaped taillights, reverse lights and even a single rear rain/fog light. There's also a set of silver and black 18-inch wheels.

      Appropriately, it is not just the exterior which has received a makeover; the cabin has also been freshened up by the Japanese brand. Among the changes is an optional digital instrument cluster and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system while dual-zone automatic climate control comes standard in the range-topping Grand Lancer.

      In terms of power, customers will only have the option of a 1.8-liter SOHC MIVEC four-cylinder delivering 140 PS (138 hp) and driving the rear wheels courtesy of an updated CVT 'box.

      Grand Lancer sounds like an 80's Medieval knights themed movie.

      The front end isn't bad and I like the surfacing on the doors (apart from the fake vent) but... That rear end is just horrific.

      This is just a slight facelift of current Taiwanese Lancer Fortis. The Taiwanese spec Lancer ditched the shark nose a long time ago.

      Also, Mitsubishi doesn't really have much to do with this car. The redesign is the work of CMC, which is the Mitsubishi distributor in Taiwan and the main investor in Soueast Mitsubishi in China.

      This looks like one of those cars in Grand Theft Auto where you can tell it's based on a real car, but they change just enough so as not to get hit with copyright infringement.

      I actually really like that front end. I never liked the Evo X front for some reason.

      I was thinking the complete opposite. That grille... WOOF!

      Lord this is ugly. The current Lancer (pre-facelift), still looks good for its age.

      I see a LOT of cheap imitation Honda Civic. The Evo X still looks pretty dang relevant all these years later. Mitsubishi... not so much.
