It's a fairly OK styling update, but not a gotta-have look.

In my eyes that is a classic case of "one facelift too much". This generation lancer was a really good looking small sedan back when it was launched 10 years ago (!). Mainly because it was not a hatchback with a rucksack but designed aas a sedan and not by some "we have to reinvent the wheel" design team.

But with each facelift the design got worse, and this is a disgrace to a once nice look. Mitsubishi, let it die gracefully, and just rebadge some Nissan or a Renault Samsung if there is no money for a new Lancer...

How is Mitsubishi still alive? Do their cars sell well in Asia?

What relevance does a concept teaser...with no link or text...have to do with the Lancer facelift?

It's obvious that Mitsubishi does not have the money to back up their plans. They have given us some stunning concepts which ended up in huge disappointments when put into production. The mismanagement of funds and the scandals that followed the brand has crippled them to a large extend. Here in Australia Mitsubishi sells a decent amount of commercial and SUV vehicles which are well priced. Their cars though are outdated and only on the buy lists of those looking for a very cheap new car. I wish some other company with deep pockets bought Mitsubishi..

What is wrong with good cheap cars? The Mitsubishi Pajero for example is the best unibody SUV with independent suspension, despite being 10 years old.

I agree and I don't know about Australia, but here you can easily get an inexpensive car with better quality, reliability, and durability from Hyundai-Kia, Ford, Chevy...

Nothing wrong with a good cheap car, but here in Aus it would come down to a fully equipped Lancer or a lower spec of anything else in the segment. Most people would forgo the extra equipment for a newer design.

And lets face it, even base model cars are quite decently equipped these days, and payments would not be much different. Or leasing for that matter.
