Mitsubishi may revive Lancer with new designOctober 9, 2020
Lancer could be an icon again. Kleber Silva, or KDesign AG as he calls himself on the Internet, has put a pretty good idea into rendering, reviving the famous car as a sedan.
Quite a long time has passed since the end of production of the Mitsubishi Lancer, a car for the final form of which enthusiasts and the general public have lost interest. Unfortunately, this also led to the “death of the mighty” Evo, and Mitsubishi argued that SUVs were more important. This, in turn, led to speculation that, like the Eclipse, the Lancer could turn into a crossover, but this did not happen.
As you can see from the renders, the Lancer will need a completely new look to stay relevant in a world where companies like Hyundai and Genesis are creating cars and crossovers with an even more futuristic look. From the 3D rendering of the Lancer, Kleber Silva is using Mitsubishi’s current design language.
Given the fact that an all-electric or hybrid variant of the returning Mitsubishi Lancer is unavoidable, it might make sense that strong elements such as fenders, bumpers and a beltline make sense. These elements flow smoothly into the trunk with an integrated spoiler, while the massive taillights and elongated chrome tailpipes in the artificial diffuser are in line with modern design trends. The “oversized” rear badge is especially striking.
While Silva’s work is generally respected by fans around the world, we tend to believe that the new Lancer should look a little less “explicit” and a little more stylish when it finally arrives.
