The Mitsubishi Lancer used to be one of the most popular cars to come out of Japan. Used to be.
Today, the Lancer has become more of an afterthought as rival automakers have come out with vehicles that have leapfrogged the Lancer in terms of sales and popularity. That, however, hasn’t stopped Mitsubishi from releasing a special edition Lancer exclusively for the UK market. Based on the Lancer 1.5 GS2 hatchback, the special edition Lancer 1.5 Juro comes chalk-full with a lot of nice upgrades, especially on the interior, making it a little more attractive than a standard Lancer.
From the outside, there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of improvements on this Lancer that justifies its special edition designation, but over at the interior is where the upgrades are evident.
As for the price tag, the Lancer 1.5 Juro’s sticker doesn’t jump out of the screen, coming in at an affordable £14,749 or about $23,400 if you want to base it on current exchange rates. Not that it matters because the car isn’t coming here anyway.
