Mitsubishi Lancer

Small car from Mitsubishi, slotting in between kei-sector Minica and larger Galant. Sold under a variety of names over the years, with overlapping model ranges. Some versions of the Mitsubishi Mirage bore the Lancer name, both domestically and for export. One Lancer formed the genesis of the Malaysian car industry, when it became the first Proton Saga. Not always the class leader, though Lancer always had a decent competition history, which the passenger cars built upon. The Lancer Evolution rally cars were sold in civilian form, beginning a legendary line that lasts to the 2010s, with few rivals other than the cooking versions of the Subaru Impreza. By 2010, the Lancer nameplate was dying out in the home market, applied domestically to the last Evolution, and a van built by Nissan as part of an OEM deal. It continued being applied in export markets to the Mitsubishi Galant Fortis. Two earlier generations of Lancer continued outside Japan.
