The Mitsubishi Lancer is overdue for an overhaul but ever since negations with Renault fell apart, the model's fate has been in limbo. That changes today as a new report is indicating the company will introduce a facelifted variant this year.

The Mitsubishi Lancer is overdue for an overhaul but ever since negations with Renault fell apart, the model's fate has been in limbo.  That changes today as a new report is indicating the company will introduce a facelifted variant before the end of the year.

Speaking to Motoring, Mitsubishi Australia marketing boss Tony Principe confirmed "... we have another facelift of the Lancer coming later this year."  Principe declined to go into specifics but said the model will be a "significant change."

That's not much to go on but the 2016 Lancer could feature revised styling that incorporates the company's new "Dynamic Shield" front fascia which was recently introduced on the 2016 Outlander.
