We featured the 1.6-liter Lancer EX in our Japan Issue last May, but we couldn't give you the pricing back then since Mitsubishi Motors Philippines had yet to finalize it for the three 1.6-liter variants. Well, we can finally give them to you now that the Japanese carmaker has officially made the cars available to the market.
The 1.6-liter Lancer EX comes in three variants: the base GLX with either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic, and the range-topping MX with a four-speed automatic gearbox.
An all-new 4A92 16-valve MIVEC engine that produces 115hp and 154Nm, powers the three 1.6-liter Lancer EX variants. Paired with the five-speed manual gearbox, Mitsubishi promises that the car can yield up to 21km for every liter of fuel.
Outside, the 1.6 EX carries the same jet fighter-inspired front grille as its 2.0-liter variants, while inside the three-spoke, leather-wrapped steering wheel comes with a silver accent that adds a touch of elegance to the sporty feel of the MX variant. Another extra feature to the top-of-the line model is the GPS navigation system that comes as an added bonus to its multimedia entertainment system.
The 1.6-liter Lancer EX is available in the following colors: Orion Black, Citadel Red, Dominic Silver and Polar White.
Oh, yeah...the price list. The prices are P825,000 for the GLX (MT), P855,000 for the GLX (AT), and P930,000 for the MX.
