Arrow Mitsubishi launches new Lancer Evolution X

Mitsubishi launches new Lancer Evolution X

Last Thursday, Mitsubishi launched the Lancer Evolution X high-performance 4WD saloon in Japan. The newest of the company's legendary vehicles features a new platform, new engine, and all-new exterior and interior designs. Models fitted with the Twin Clutch SST transmission will follow there towards the end of November.

The development goal for the new Lancer Evolution X was to make the car as fast as possible, while also making it as safe to drive as possible. To that end Lancer Evolution X is loaded with the very latest in automotive engineering technology, including the S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) vehicle dynamics control system and the newly developed, power-efficient Twin Clutch SST (Sport Shift Transmission).

Mitsubishi say that the Lancer Evolution X is a new-generation high-performance 4WD sedan that allows a new category of driver access to it's dynamic driving experience by underpinning speed with control, security and safety.

Lancer Evolution X's handsome and aggressive functional design presents an intimidating and exciting aerodynamic exterior. Mitsubishi says that it suggests superior road performance. This is complemented by a functional interior that Mitsubishi says Lancer Evolution X realises very high levels of motive and driving performance thanks to its new high-output and lightweight 2.0-liter DOHC MIVEC turbocharged engine with aluminiu block, an all-new body and stiffer suspension. Despite its turbocharged pedigree the new model earns a 3-star rating for emissions that are 50 per cent lower than the requirements of the lower Japanese 2005 standards.

And complementing its powerful and clean road performance is the kind of a safety specification one would expect of a new-generation high-performance model: SRS dual stage airbags for driver and front passenger, SRS knee airbag for driver and adaptive front lighting system (AFS) are all standard equipment on the GSR trim level.

The Twin Clutch SST is a 6-speed automated manual transmission incorporating a dual automated clutch system to deliver lightning-fast, slick shifting for feel-good acceleration while it also provides high-efficiency power transmission for outstanding fuel economy. In keeping with the higher output and torque developed by the new engine, Lancer Evolution

X is offered with a new 5-speed manual transmission that delivers smoother shifting and improved shift feel for those who prefer the joys and more direct control of manual shifting.

All Lancer Evolution X GSR models are fitted with the S-AWC vehicle dynamics control system. The system intelligently manages several component systems to regulate drive torque and braking force at each wheel, reading and reflecting driver intent in real time ove a wide range of situations. This allows drivers of all abilities to enjoy sporty driving with peace of mind.

More details on the new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X closer to D-day in this part of the world.
