Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia have just launched the Lancer 2.0 GT CBU from Japan with a properly amazing price of RM115,980 OTR!
<b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b><b></b>

With an impressive spec sheet and a price tag that seriously undercuts the competition, especially its direct competitor the Honda Civic, the Mitsubishi Lancer 2.0 GT is a fantastic proposition for Malaysia buyers. Definitely makes the CKD Civic look overpriced to hell.

Looks pretty good as well!

They should, I mean it makes them look like greedy businessmen trying to increase their margins with inflated prices, especially considering the Altis is relatively stone age in comparison and badly needing a replacement. The Civic could claim to have better service coverage nationwide but still the price difference is significant compared to the Lancer. I'm thinking if part of Mitsubishi's service network is near you, it would be a no brainer to go for the Lancer.

The Sentra is already in the 80k territory and shouldn't be directly affected me thinks. But the Latio, especially the high spec ones could be affected. One would certainly be tempted to top up the difference and go for the bigger car.

Oh yeah...how can I forget the Focus. Its properly fucked as well. Sales weren't so hot to begin with.

BTW, there's a hotter Lancer in the works, placed below the Evo X, rivalling the Scooby WRX. That means a turbocharged 2.0 litre engine making about 220 - 240bhp (guessing) with AWD to boot. I'm guessing if Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia is wise and kind enough to bring it in, it'll cost around 200+k and give the new CTR something to think about.

Went to Glenmarie to see.

- 18 inch wheels (lightweight, says the salesman)
- Yokohama Advan A10
- Soft Nappa leather semi buckets
- RM111k++ selling price, RM115k++ OTR price with insurance
- RM1,017 per month (9 years loan, 10% downpayment)
- RM3,173.90 insurance (RM112k insured value)
- first Evo X platform available on Malaysian soil?

This car will be a market conqueror.

Civic 2.0S is RM12k more expensive. Type R which was launched a week ago? RM83k difference. Looks like Honda went straight into an ambush.

Few years down the line, owners will be unable to ignore the itch to transform the Lancer to Evo X. Similar platform (although FF), same 2.0 cc. Evo X for less than a price of a Type R.

But heck, in stock version, it's already a MIVEC 2.0.

Say hello to AFTA.

Just saw the TV advert.

B-a-l-a-r-d-y hell.

Mitsubishi Malaysia really did a D-Day ambush on the Malaysian car market.

Me thinks it will look much better without that front lip, or with a different one.

But other than that, bloody awesome for its price.
